    OK What annoys you about your wife or girlfriend, like one of the things my wife does that really P*SSES me of, is "STUPID QUESTIONS", take the following as an example,

    ME: "On the the rowing machine."
    WIFE:......... What are you doing?
    ME: .............. Reading the A to Z of time travel........
    WIFE: No your not, your on the rowing machine.
    ME: WTF..... If you can see this, why ask???? AGGHHH


    There are LOADS of other stupid things like this that i get, but I wanted to know what other people get from an "International" level, and you too ladies, what annoys you about us men, apart from being technology widows....

    :D

    When you ask them if they want anything and they say no...
    But really they wanted something and you were suppose to guess what they wanted...

    Another i get is, we'll both be in a room, lets say the kitchen, she will then walk out, start going up the stairs and begin a conversation with me.......... then to top it all off, shouts out me for not listening to her when i dont answer.

    The fact I cant hear her is besides the point lol

    My wife will sit down right next to me while I'm watching tv, and start talking on the phone.I crank the volume, and she goes ballistic.
    The nurse:"Can't you turn that down?!!??"
    The computer geek: " The Goddamn phone is CORDLESS!!!"

    Yeah, my wife favourite is to come wandering in and start speking about nothing when I'm watching tv or playing a game, but if I dare to speak when she is watching whatever peice of televisual crap she's got on, all hell breaks loose...

    The blindingly obvious questions one happens here as well...
    Playing forza on the 360 on a 37" tv, she comes in and asks ' wot you up to?'

    hehe raven, you gotta be patient with your wife, she probably just wants to have a casual talk with you, and some people ( guys or girls ) act stupid to get a conversation going.

    Dont holla down at her, just joke round and be cool....and be patient lol she loves ya thats all.

    I'm a bit clumsy, so if i drop something or break something, i get the riot act.

    if she does it, it's either 'oh dear, silly me (acting all cute)' or 'it's not my fault the thing was wet/ too hot / slimy / in the way.

    it all works out as my fault!!!

    i'm marrying her why????

    My girl always asks what I'm doing when we're on the phone.
    But what about If your girl/wife is looking al pissed of and you have no idea what's wrong. And when you ask what's wrong the only reply you get is 'Nothing'. And if you start asking more questions(you feel obligated to, because the chance is 99% it's your fault she's looking pissed) all she does is get more angry. Siigh

    Actually the whole misunderstanding thing has got to do with two completely different approaches to communication.

    - Men mainly communicate to pass on information, hence the brief, to-the-point phone calls, short answers, etc. (although there are other purposes as well.

    - Women see communication as a social act, chatting, emoting... hence the endless phone calls, the seemingly pointless questions (they are not interested in what you are actually doing, they want to socialise, and before you ask me "Why the hell don't they say so in the first place?", the answer is "I'm damned if I know... It drives me spare too), etc.

    Men find it extremely difficult to interpret women's communication as they (we) are used to exchanging facts and tend to be concise about it. They also quickly lose patience since women never seem to get to the point (there are exceptions, of course, in both sexes). And also, women are capable of talking and listening, or listening and reading at the same time, while we are usually not (it gets us confused as hell if two people are talking to us at the same time)...

    Its the same with shopping, Men striaght into town, get what the want, straight back out again.

    Women however, 5 hours walking around the shops, dragging our a*ses around with them, looking for something to go with "Those new shoes", but then they go to the very fist shop they went to agggghhhhh.

    the singl thing that pi$$es me off the most is when you ask her how her day was..............two hours later she finshes, all the minute detail, who did what, who said what...blah blah blah.

    my turn : 'salright, spose, SSDD.

    and before anyone asks, i love my job.

    This thread made me smile... IM NOT ALONE :D

    My lass finds it impossible to be decisive it drives me crazy. I have to make all the decisions and its like playing russian roulette, if i choose badly (or not what she was thinking and i still cant read her mind no matter how hard i try) its moody arse city for the rest of that day/activity.

    Or she looks down or bothered about something, you ask "hey whats up?" honestly taking an interest and you get "Oh nothing..." when its CLEARLY something... I usually ask again then ignore it which results in later on a sudden "You just dont get it do you!!" wtf? get what? you wont tell me!

    Agree about men being to the point tho totally.. Get to town, buy whats required to carry on existing, get home.... The missus - get to town, meander around every shop with open doors and anyone saying SALE then go back round them all again only to decide she doesnt want anything anyway... :D

    Gotta love em :)
