I love my husband. I really, really, really do. He’s my best friend in the whole world, my soul mate, and the love of my life. But some of the things he does drive me absolutely INSANE! At the very top of this relatively short list is this: I hate clutter, and HE. IS. A. SLOB. I’m not talking about as far as his PERSON goes. He is always very well put together–hair and clothes and such. I’m talking about his personal space. He does pretty good about keeping his messes in the general living area that we share to a minimum. But there are parts of the house that I consider to be HIS. He has HIS garage, HIS media room, and HIS shipping room. I don’t even like to look at these spaces, much less go in them. And God forbid I try to clean any of them. They might be a disaster area, but he knows exactly where everything is. So I let him have his space in which to relish in his slobbiness.
He repairs and builds computers, so there are forever computer guts strewn all over it. What can I say, though? It makes him a living!
Again, work related. Most of the computers that he builds end up being sold on eBay. Hence the need for a shipping room. Likewise, most of the parts that he buys are bought online and shipped to him, so he has a huge stockpile of boxes. Some get reused, but most end up going to the recycling facility.
The hubby is also a licensed electrical contractor. The garage is where all of his electrical tools and supplies live.
So what about you guys? Does your significant other/kid/roommate have a habit or hobby that drives you nuts?
