Unknown Pet Peeves

As I may have told you in a previous post about Mr.B and my budgeting habits, the hubby and I keep a detailed written list of everything we spend. This lists helps us to keep track of exactly how much money we have to spend, and what we are spending our money on. Being so hands on helps us to keep a close eye on where our money's going, and not go over our budget.

Recently Mr.B and I updated our written sheet together, and low and behold a little pet peeve he possesses, which I had no prior knowledge of was revealed. Let me set the scene: Mr.B and I were cozied up to the desk, he was reading the charges from our bank's website and calculating the deductions or credits, and I was writing each one down on our list. All of a sudden, I looked at the sheet and noticed how each time I wrote another line item, my numbers got further and further towards the center of the page. We were very delinquent in the updating of our sheet, so it was easy to see how everything angled towards the center. "Wow, look how slanted my writing is," I said, thinking it was nothing but amusing. "Oh my gosh, I'm glad you said something, that drives me CRAZY," Mr.B replied! HA!

Who knows what drives our spouses a little nutty some times? I personally know that Mr.B can think I'm a bit scary (lord knows why), and doesn't like to point these things out, but personally I would like to know so I can try to change them! Just like I like to point out how it's a huge pet peeve of mine when crumbs are on the kitchen counter, hoping he'll clean them up after making a sandwich, or how it drives me nuts when someone puts a roll of toilet paper on the tank instead of replacing it on the roll (still holding my breath for those).

What are some of your pet peeves? Does your spouse have any pet peeves about stuff you do? Dish! XO. SB.
