Ideas picked up from personal experience and my interaction with other couples
He throws the wet towel on the bed instead of putting it up on the clothes line
Leaves the newspaper lying around in unimaginable places after reading
Stuffs the socks inside the shoes for days and gives for washing when they reach the yuck stage
Banana peel/ chocolate wrapper will be proudly seated on the sofa
Leaves soap wrapper on the bathroom shelf
An empty glass will almost always be found under the sofa
He will say I‘ll be back in 15 minutes and will take almost 2 hours to be back
Will never pick up the clothes from clothes line
Will expect her to keep the home spic & span. He will do the major cleaning once in a blue moon and expect to receive the benefit of the good deed in the form of praises and no major work given till the next blue moon when he decides that the cleaning has to be done.
She refuses to order a soft drink in the restaurant, even tries to dissuade him from ordering one- but happily take a larger than fair share from the soft drink that he orders
Makes long telephone calls to her Mom & other relatives but blames him if the bills are huge –tells him that it is all because of the continuous browsing he did.
Somehow blames him for everything- unpaid/ overdue bills, missed couriers, even maid not turning up
Asks him to drop her to work, for shopping etc even if she knows how to drive- gives the cold treatment if he refuses to drop her.
She fights with him if he watches TV but keeps a tight schedule of TV viewing herself
Will always complain that he does not take her out
Always asks why do you love me or do you love me or how much do you love me.
Will compare present behaviour with pre-marriage behaviour- holding hands, romancing, giving flowers
Will expect him to clean the loo
