Let me start this post by stating that I love my husband very, very much. He's a great man, a great partner, and a great father. He possesses many exemplary qualities, not the least being his ability to put up with me and all my annoying habits (chronic sinus sniffling, inability to screw the peanut butter jar on tight, terrible habit of leaving all the cabinets in the kitchen gaping open, paralyzing fear of spiders, etc.).
THAT SAID, there are a few things he consistently does around the home that drive me absolutely batshit crazy. Please observe my meticulous photo documentation of these 9 husband fails and tell me -- am I justified in my wifely rage? If found guilty for reasons of household insanity, do I have a shot at a sympathetic jury? *craftily begins planning courtroom defense*

"What? I did the laundry." No dude, you put a bunch of clothes in the washing machine, turned it on, then all thoughts of laundry instantly left your brain forever and ever, and all the clothes got mildewy-smelling from sitting in their own moist juices, and they by default became MY problem. WASH + DRY + PUT AWAY = LAUNDRY.

Whew. I'm glad I got all this off my chest. So, tell me -- what household habits does YOUR spouse have that drive you nuts?
