One of the best things about being married is knowing someone so well that you can predict their next move, or how they’re going to react to any particular situation.
It can also be the worst thing, if the way they’re going to react or the next move they’re going to make is going to drive you absolutely insane – which is exactly what’s going on with these 15 spouses, who are not about to stop having the same argument over and over.
Good times, right? But hey, at least it’s not you!
15. We all have our crosses to bear.
Some are more annoying than others.
The man cannot load a dishwasher properly and fundamentally does not understand the difference between what is recyclable and what is not. This is my supervillain origin story. https://t.co/MXx6U6mraX

14. Picking up and cleaning are not the same thing.
This was my mother’s mantra for years.
13. She could revoke his family shopping privileges.
But I’m thinking that might be exactly what he wants.
When he goes to the grocery store, he suddenly forgets about his wife & 3 children, and shops like a teenage boy. Buys things like ‘salami-cheese’, Pringles, a 2 liter bottle of orange soda & a single mango.
It makes me want to flip the table.

12. I mean it does something.
But it doesn’t do everything.
11. Works better how? To remove skin?
I have many questions.
Me: babe just let me buy you a loofah
Him: no this works better
Reader, he was using a STEEL WOOL PAD on his feet. It lived in the shower, like it just belonged there

10. This actually doesn’t make any sense.
Unless you have a really clean floor, I suppose.
My husband insists that clothes he has worn once are not dirty enough for the hamper but not clean enough for the closet. So he leaves them on the floor. We don’t even argue about it any more. Lots of eye rolling though.

9. Is this a man thing?
Because I definitely don’t understand it.
Leaving lights on in a room you’re no longer in. WHY, GOD?!
Also, Jesus didn’t die for you to not close cabinets.

8. I bet he says you’re just hard of hearing.
Ask me how I know.
He mumbles. 30 years and I still have to tell him to speak up. Drives me bananas.

7. I thought I was alone in this battle.
It’s like he doesn’t even hear that dinging.
"Could you put your seatbelt on before starting the car engine so that the seatbelt alarm doesn't start going?"
Next time we're in the car: "Could you put your seatbelt on before…"

6. I mean we can’t all be etiquette experts.
Not to take sides or anything.
What side the fork goes on. My husband always puts it to the right of the plate. Drives me nuts.

5. Well that’s one way to solve things.
Whatever works, when it comes to marriage.
We literally have not put toilet paper on the toilet paper holder in the fifteen years we’ve lived together because I insist it goes over-the-top and she insists it hangs-down-behind.
It goes on its side in a drawer next to the toilet so we do not have to get a divorce.

4. And I bet he was surprised every single time.
How can he be expected to remember HER schedule?
He is always in his most talkative mood when I am on deadline. Ask me how many times I’ve snapped “im on deadline” in 20 yrs.

3. You’d think that one incident would have taught him a lesson.
Sadly, I think we all know that’s not how it works.
When my husband opens an orange juice bottle or a vitamin bottle or anything with plastic wrap keeping the lid closed or the bottle sealed he leaves it on the counter EVERY TIME. Once I collected them all for weeks and crammed them in his pillow case. 12yrs later he still does it

2. That’s just laziness.
He’s afraid she’ll ask him to buy more.
He won’t use the last of anything because he thinks I’ll be mad that he used all of it. No! Use it, let me know you finished it and get more! There’s nothing worse than 5 chips in a bag, a shot glass of Oj or teaspoon of hummus. Yes, I have pictures. #petty pic.twitter.com/O0JB6AAfwT

1. Well, we wouldn’t want to be wasteful, would we?
This is just hilarious because it’s so human.
Bath soap. Bars of bath soap. When one is about half its original size, he’d open a new one, but refuse to throw away the old one – because that would be wasteful. We could have 4 or 5 half bars of soap crowding the soap dish, falling on the shower floor, but throw one away? No!

At least it’s not you this time, I should have said, because I’m sure you and the person you live with have your own versions of these good times.
Tell us about one of them in the comments!
