There’s no question that adulting is hard. Sometimes we all need a good cry to let the stress and anxiety out. After moving in together, this person’s partner soon came to realize that he had a dedicated time and place for crying.
We have to say, combining the daily tasks of showering and crying is an impressively productive move. Sad…but time-efficient!
Cleanliness is a spectrum. On one end, there are people who scrub every nook and cranny of their homes. On the other end, there are people who haven't picked up a broom in years. If you and your partner are on opposing ends, things could get...messy.
It's best to avoid a dirty fight by "cleaning up" your definition of clean with your partner earlier rather than later.
When you move in with someone, you will have to share space, but rarely do we have a conversation about which space we can put our stuff in. This person was surprised when she opened up a dresser drawer to find it empty.
When she confronted her partner, he said he thought that was her "extra" dresser and had been putting his clothes in his "clean clothes" hamper for the last four years. Maybe we should all have a conversation about what goes where next time we move in with a partner.
Country Meets Metal
Choosing music in the car is one of the hardest things to do. It's even harder when people's music choices clash. For this married couple their music clashes a bit more than usual.
She loves death metal, and he enjoys country, an interesting combination indeed. We are just glad they have made it work and love each other despite their differences in music. Sometimes opposites attract, and this is one of those examples.
Men Don't Wipe?
Typically we assume everyone uses the bathroom like us. If we sit while we pee, everyone sits while they pee. If we stand while we wipe, everyone stands while they wipe. If we like to spend 30 minutes on the john, everyone takes 30 mins on the john.
This person found out that's not always the case when she found out her boyfriend doesn't wipe after peeing. Her mind was blown, and it still feels weird to her to this day. We only hope that since we wash our hands after we pee, everyone, washes their hands after they pee.
