A few weeks ago I was at my daughters and while I was there I went upstairs to the older kids bathroom... 3 bathrooms in the house. I love it, no waiting in line... lol

Anyways, one of them had left the toothpaste laying on the sink counter instead of putting it away. The tube was a mess!!

Tube pushed from the middle, sqwished here and there and tooth paste all over the cap which was only half closed.

Not my toothpaste, I don't have to use it, it shouldn't bother me in the least..... BUT, it drove me nuts!!!

So of course I felt the need to take the cap of and run hot water over and through it until it was completely clean and then pushed the toothpaste up from the bottom and put it away in the drawer where it belongs.
Okay, I felt better....... much better. lmao

No matter if we are slobs or are completely OCD, we all have little things that just bug us. whether they should or not.... ( like someone elses toothpaste tube that is none of our business ...lol)

What's your little qwirks that just drive you nuts and you feel like you just have to adjust, fix or change....... whether it's yours or not. Or at least you want to really badly.
What is something someone else may do in your home that bothers or irritates you?

My oldest grand daughter has a habit of leaving a cupboard door open... .. or losing the remote. I can never seem to find it after she's had it. I swear sometimes I think she's looks for new places to misplace it....

I love this child more than life, but this drives me bonkers somedays...

What gets to you?

The only thing that really gets me is people playing with my toothpaste.

My kids can't figure out to get that damn lid back on our toothpaste. Leaving the closet door open becuase I can't see it and I run smack into in the middle of the night. Leaving two swallows of milk in the jug, or three spoons full of cereal in the box. Over and over and over and...well you get the point. Pick thier boogers and wipe it on the couch. Pick thier finger nails and throw them behind the couch. There is more, but if I bring them all up at the same time you'll be visiing me in a mental institute.

What bugs me if someone does it in my house is coming in and changing the station on my tv without asking then dropping the remote under the sofa. What bugs me in other people's houses that I have to fix is not drying the soap dish before they put the soap back in it or leaving the soap dripping wet and putting it in the dish. For some reason I have to fix it and can't ignore it.

Since the kitchen is "mine"...I do all the cooking, I have things where I want them, so put things back where ya got "em! Simple, right? Apparently not at my house!! That includes the cupboards and fridge!!

I alos can't stand to have a messy bathroom!! Wipe the sink out after brushing your teeth! Pull the shower curtain closed so that it can dry, hang up your towels and for gauds sake, when you throw something away....make sure it gets in the trashcan!!

Ok, now I'm gonna go sit in the corner and contemplate my nave!!

Those would be pet peeves more than quirks.

But a few, beyond the ones mentioned by others would be:

Using the last of something and not putting it on the grocery list.

Leaving an empty toilet paper roll on the holder.

Drinking the last soda in the refrigerator and not replacing them with the warm ones in the pantry.

Not closing bags of chips or boxes of crackers and cereal so they get stale.

(with roommates) Using or eating all of something I bought for myself and not replacing it.

Leaving lights on in unoccupied rooms.

I'm not a pack rat by any stretch of the imagination but for some reason it is the hardest thing for me to throw away boxes, bubble wrap and those chunks of styrofoam that things like computers are packed in. I keep a reasonalbe amount of all three but any new I get it's just a struggle to make myself get rid of it.

I think I have heard you mention this a time or two..........

Qwirks? The dishes not being done, the fish tank not being clean, and cat litter boxes not cleaned, doesn't matter if its my house or someone else. The only difference is i can ignore other people's homes.

but then again, I'm still trying to find things in my cupboards from when she was here last...
Oh you're going to be in trouble now, mister........

Sounds simple enough to me.........
But then again, I am the one who rearranged Griz's cupborads before actually moving in. However, in my defense, I was there for a month, we've agreed it's my kitchen and I was having a really difficult time walking or even moving so I needed to be able to get to things. Not have to find half of it here and the other half over there somewhere... or having to use a step stool that I couldn't climb on to reach things when he wasn't home.

He's moved things around some since I've been there....... I'm going to have a heck of a time finding or reaching anything next month... for the first few days.

ya know, the wash, papers spread around...
Ummm, Yeah!!

The only thing that really gets me is people playing with my toothpaste.
mental note to self, leave Purp's toothpaste alone.

guys leave the toilet seat up after they are done!

That is the all time classic in the battle of the sexes! I am surprised that it took so long for a lady to mention it. Of course, there is the related irksome act, guys peeing on the toilet seat because they failed to raise the lid.

cat litter boxes not cleaned

If they own a cat, that is my number one when in other people's houses. If I know them well, I will say something about it. It is disgusting.

Another one of mine is not rinsing off dishes with food on them before putting them the sink. Also, if they do rinse them off and there is solid food involved, rinsing them off and down the drain on the side of the sink that DOES NOT connect to the garbage disposal. It can, and has, cost me time and money to unclog the damned drain.

My only real quirk is toilet paper.. it must.. absolutely must face the front so it unrolls over the top. I can't seem to work it if it's on backwards, especially in the middle of the night.

I fixed the toothpaste tube issue by purchasing the kind that comes in a little bottle. No more muss or fuss.

1. I hate seeing cigarette butts laying all over the ground.

2. People who litter, especially behind my house

3. loud people yelling and screaming at each other in my neighborhood

4. Stereo systems in cars to where people set their bass very high to where they shake your house.

6. People who seem to think they can't survive without using their cell phones everywhere they go.

7. People who don't take care of their pets

8. People who don't keep their property up in my neighborhood

When i go out to eat at a restaurant. I drive my family nuts, as soon as we are done with a plate, spoon, whatever I will restack them like you are supposed to (plates on the bottom, silverware on the side, & bowls on top) I hate having dishes from the appetizer sitting there while I am trying to eat my main meal. I will wipe down the table while eating so not to have a bunch of crumbs & will stop the server every time they go buy to clear off the table.

That way when we are done eating it doesn't look like a tornado went through & scattered napkins, the wrappers from the straws & around the silverware are put on there first thing.

Okay, part 2. Kids in a restaurant. My children can talk with us have a nice conversation with the grownups. But then I will have other tables kids running through the restaurant come up to you & watch you eat or sit behind you in the booth talking to you rather than turn around & sit while eating.

Okay that's enough for now off to be mom again. :)
