It's The LITTLE things that make me crazy

 It's the little things that make me crazy. NOT the camera, not the focus, but The Hubby I live with.
NOTE: the photos have NOTHING to do with today's story, they are Just Because I took them.
 Can you tell me why

Hubby leaves bread crumbs on the counter?

Why he puts the trash can back in the kitchen cabinet without putting the new bag in when he takes the old one out?

And why he stands the knives POINT up in the dish drainer?

 Why he leaves the stems from grapes on the end table at night? ( i left them there for 3 days to see if they Moved, NOT)

Why he hangs his shorts/t-shirts on his bathroom door knob?

Why he talks over news cast and movies and then says, What did they say? and I answer I don't know, you were TALKING.
There is NO answer, so don't even try. How I live with all this is to remind myself, he did take out the garbage, he does do laundry sometimes, he was washing dishes when he left the knife point up. All of this is a lot about a little bit of nothing, but the one thing that is unforgivable is
He hangs the toilet tissue OVER not under....

PS... I almost forgot this one. Why does he wait until AFTER I clean his bathroom to trim his beard

At first I thought you had joined a meme/project I've seen around on other blogs, finding things to match the colours in a crayon box... As for the rest - since I don't live with anyone I have only myself to blame when things get done wrong or not at all around here!

Great shots of the creyons.
I plead the 5th on your commentary.
since my Madeline will read this.

Chatty Crone said...

I can answer in five words - because he is a man!

One word - man!

They do not see what we see. They do not hear what we hear. They don't think like we think . . . you get what I'm sayin'?

Loved the crayon shots.


Snapper II said...

I agree with Chatty Crone! M-A-N!!
She explained it perfectly....They don't do it on purpose they are just from Mars and we are from Venus.....When Snapper II does things that aggravate me, I say, "Can't live with him....can't live without him....Right girls?
You better take the 5th on this one Snapper II,or there would be
serious consequences.....!!! :-)
Love you Sandra, Madeline

Rolling on the floor here with laughter! I just asked hubby this morning why does he leave bread crumbs on the counter?? We do agree on the toilet paper. We both prefer it over. Love the colorful pics.

Susannah said...

This sounds like Home!!!!!! MEN - Can't live with them and can't live with out them!!! LOL!

Deb said...

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Great and colourful pictures. Just enjoy these little annoyances,there has to be a lot about the man that you love. I could go on,but my way of thinking is biased,coming from where I am right now,

I'm glad you left the sunshine-come-to-earth header on! It is raining here. I LOVE the first crayon picture, I can almost smell them now!! You must have bought a new box just for snapping? Phil does the talking over T.V. thing, too. And we are really blessed that our men do the dishes and help around the house. They really just kind of tune the mess out and don't see it!! If Phil actually SEES something and NOTICES it, he will clean or fix it, he is very willing. But now to the toilet paper!!! Boy, people sure have strong views on this!!! For me, ever since I was a toddler, I was taught always OVER. And there is also a reason. So that the loose end doesn't touch the bathroom wall, which is near the toilet and would be dirty. And I have a good answer for you about the knives, tell Bob!! Phil WANTS to put them point down and I won't let him. So I am always stabbing my arms with them and have holes in my skin. BUT this is because I read it is bad for your knives to put them point down!!! It messes up the blades and can cause the tips to rust. They stay cleaner point up. So I consider the knives over my own skin, pretty stupid.

I must be loosing my mind? I came here was- last night and commented on the previous post. Notice I mentioned (I see crayons!!) Well this was classic..every one and I love your macros of all the pretty crayons!! (Lol) talking over the news got me..and stuff out on the sink- my husband does the same darn thing!! This was hilarous, so ya, we don't ask-

Ann said...

First of all I love the crayon pictures and I'm impressed, not one broken tip :)
As for your husband I can only suspect that it because of life on
My husband always trims his beard over the bathroom sink and while he will rinse the sink out he doesn't wipe off the counter. When I say something he always says well I thought I cleaned it all up.

S. Etole said...

Now I'm wishing I had a brand new box of crayons to play with.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, the crayon shots would lead me to believe you were having fun with your macro lens and you choose a wonderfully colorful subject, several in fact. As for the questions you asked in this post, we all have our little annoyances and irrating habits. Hopefully, yours won't be posted in return :-)

Rose said...

At least he hangs the toilet paper!

I can't comment on the rest...some of it I do...though I am the one that cleans up after myself.

The one I want to know is why does the empty milk jug get set on the counter and not in the garbage?

EG Wow said...

Hehehe! Nobody said living with someone else would be easy, Sandra. :))

Catherine said...

Haha - you have to remember...he's a man. There's only so much that we can expect from them.... ;)

Love your crayon photos!
xo Catherine

Stacey Dawn said...

I'm thankful you have hubby to keep us entertained! And um, I'm with hubby on the OVER not under....with the TP.... sorry!!

gorgeous pics of those crayons!

SquirrelQueen said...

I love the intense colors of the crayons.

He's a man, it's just the way it is. And yes to most of the above except the knives. Ginny has already covered my reasons for keeping them blade up in the dish drainer.

Miss Samantha is a pretty little girl. I really like the one about the wastebasket.

missing moments said...

We must be married to the same man!!!

photowannabe said...

Well, there isn't much I can add to what has already been commented on but I guess its the little annoyances that keep life interesting.
Love your macros of the crayons. Good stuff Sandra.
