    Open things like doors and cabinets is a major pet peeve of mine.

    R likes to leave cabinets open and so does the effing cat.

    I’m bad at leaving cabinets open if I get distracted in the middle of getting something heavy out that requires both hands lol

    drives C crazy but I’ve worked on it and don’t do it near as often now. We can be taught!!

    Both my parents and A do this. It drives me nuts. I have gotten A to stop over time but my parents cannot be trained. They do, at least, close the dishwasher.

    I'm bad at it too, but usually it's because I'm juggling a million things at once and I'm trying to hurry. J's mom clears the strainer and she usually leaves one of the cabinets open and I don't know why. I thought I was doing it at first :lol:

    Eta: I would never leave a dishwasher open though. That's just asking for trouble.

    I thought you meant he leaves it open a crack, like for the stem to vent while the dishes are drying. Fully open?! Just knowing that’s happening in someone else’s house bugs me. :lol:

    I’m back with the same bullshit emotional labor argument.

    while WFH I have a 30 minute lunch break. I usually have leftovers but N ate all of the dinner last night so he knew I had a 30 minute window to make myself food. He also knows E needs to eat lunch at this time of day.

    He sat on the floor playing with her for 40 minutes until I came for my lunch break. Then he ended his break so I had to feed myself and E. Guess which one of us didn’t eat?

    WTF? Did he say why he didn’t feed the baby?

    Yes. He said he knows that I like to eat lunch with her because we have limited time during the day. So I get it, but also be a little cognizant of what’s going on.

    Is man logic actually this bad or do they concoct these convoluted mental leaps just to be lazy? Because it seems like a lot of energy.

    If you figure it out, let me know so I can adjust my rage level appropriately.

    Mmmhhmmm, okay, so make your wife and daughter lunch so they can enjoy their limited time together, N. There is no half-credit for half-assed answers.

    Does nothing, blames you while playing the victim in all of this. You have some restraint. Please order only yourself a pizza tonight.

    Isn’t it universal knowledge that if you’re responsible for your wife missing a meal, you’ve signed your own death warrant?

    Good news, I never have to make dinner ever again because my husband is an asshole. He can do it himself or starve.

    Pretty much how I feel. He felt the need to bitch about the fact that I sometimes ask for help when "you're supposed to be cooking dinner." Sorry I didn't know "hey can you stir that while I cut this" or "I think the chicken is done, can you verify?" so I don't kill us was too much of a burden for him. Apparently my tone when asking for help is too bitchy too and he pretended to be me and it was not accurate. If he feels this way then I won't cook. :shrug:

    Oh boy J look at you just digging your own grave, and at a time when you can’t even escape.

    A did this thing where he’ll say “don’t yell at me!” When I am talking in a normal speaking voice. I had many times told him it pissed me off because saying something he didn't want to hear was not the equivalent of yelling. I had to SNAP and was like “THIS IS YELLING! DO YOU HEAR THIS? IS THIS WHAT I WAS DOING?” and then he got it. I told him if it happened again I was gonna start recording our convos. Serious pet peeve of mine- just because you don’t wanna hear it it listen doesn’t mean I’m yelling/being bitchy.

    I need to do that. My husband has an irritatingly broad definition of “yelling”.
