Breaking a husband’s bad habits.
I’d say that 98 percent of the time, my husband is the greatest man ever.
Usually, I can ignore and look past the two percent of annoying habits he has.
But lately — and by lately I mean ever since we moved to Japan five months ago — he’s developed this habit of putting trash in the kitchen sink.
I mean, seriously.
The trashcan is less than two feet away from the kitchen sink. In the five years I’ve lived with him he has never put trash in the kitchen sink. Ever. So what the hell, Bagpiper?
For awhile, I’ve been ignoring it. If I go to the sink and see a beer bottle, paper plate or an empty bag of chips, I throw it away. After all, he does so much that I feel bad complaining about his bad habits.
This evening I did the dishes and found three pieces of trash in the sink. I threw it away in the trashcan, finished the dishes and then decided to take action. I have no idea if it’s going to work, but it’s a start. If it doesn’t work, then I’ll have to figure out more drastic measures…
Think it’ll work?
What bad habits does your husband/significant other have that just drive you up the wall?
