View Full Version : Things women do that irritate men!

I know there's lots of things that men do that irritate women, but what about the other way around?

For instance. I bought a new can of shaving gel, not very long ago. I'm quite frugal with it, and it can last me months. What do I find the other day? It's empty. She'd shaved her legs. Why does it take an entire can of shaving gel? The place must be awash with excess foam!!

Oh, and then there's the 'using your wet razor' to do the job! (fortunately this wasn't the case in this instance). They never tell you until you've used the razor, and come out of the bathroom oozing blood and wondering why!

Any other things that irritate?

When my fiance says:

"I'm Fine" or Ignores me, if we are going to have a row i'd rather just get it out of the way not mess around like School children.

Yea my Shaving cream doesn't last nearly a quarter as long now i've moved in with the missus...

Only one thing that niggled me.

When she's (ex) in the passenger seat and someone walks out in the road 20/30 mtrs ahead, she will never calmly advise you...'careful honey'. She will grab my arm while saying 'watch out' both at exactly the same time and like lightening, scaring the crap out of me.

Let's make sweeping generalisations and say that women have no spatial awareness. A generalism perhaps, but not inaccurate.

if we had no spatial awareness we would keep missing the chair and would be constantly walking into lamp posts:loopy:

We have less spatial awareness:D

Oh, and then there's the 'moaning' about the toilet seat! That really bugs me. I suppose that comes down to the spatial awareness (lack of), cos they obviously back onto the toilet without being aware that the seat is up!

Where's my tin hat?

Then there's the issue of hiding my shoes! I kick them off in the middle of the lounge floor, and when I come to find them, they're not there any more!

yeah I know what you mean about wittering while a film is on, and then saying, I don't understand what's going on, and you have to explain it to them, while missing the next bit yourself!

Fortunately we are a 'no-soap' household. We both hate all of them!

It doesn't irritate me as such, but...why do women always go to the ladies in packs? :huh:

For me, it ranks up there with the "I'm fine" (when they're quite obviously not, but just won't spill the beans - yes, did LOL @ Ex-sTAb :D).

" I don't know because you were telling me what Shirley said to Paula about what her boyfriend said to Steve's wife. If you want to watch it, shut up"

"There's no need to be grumpy."

I'm slightly confused with your post! Are you saying 'women' make a song and dance of things, or men?

I'm sure I'm highly irritating in some respects to women, but like you say, it goes both ways. Personally I'd say men make far less of a fuss about things than women do.

Yep, that's me!

Also I tell him off for leaving his shoes lying around yet leave mine lying around, the difference being that he never tidies mine up and I generally always have to move his, hence the telling off. He doesn't get it......Most men wouldn't, bless the docile creatures.:)

'If you put em away you'd know where away is'

How about being dragged around the shops looking for something new for them to wear! Then insisting you 'look after' the bags while they go and try something on. Only to be left amongst a sea of womens underwear trying hard NOT to look furtive. (cos for some bizarre reason, they always put the underwear next to the changing rooms)

Oddly, I don't mind that!

It is a bit annoying though when she says "I'm looking for a new pair of trousers", but we spend most of our time looking at skirts, blouses, jumpers, t shirts, handbags before moving on to the trousers

I always think she got me there under false pretences - if she'd said she wanted to look at every women's clothing department in every shop I'd have happily waited for her in the benjamin huntsman or the museum

Sounds like my handbag! (Or my suitcase as my OH calls it!) I have everything in there!! I was searching in there for something the other day and couldn't find what i was looking for so i took some stuff out while i looked. The items taken out included a pair of socks, a pot noodle and a candle! My sister's boyfriend just shook his head and said 'i'm not even gunna ask!'

Thankfully my wife doesn't like clothes shopping.

However, on the occasions when she needs something, she'll vanish into the changing rooms with two or three items.

I'll wait outside. And wait. And wait...

Other women come and go, with half a dozen items. The occupancy of the other changing cubicles turns over several times...

My wife only went in with two items.

What the hell does she do in there?

Women in supermarkets,
Why do they wait until everything is scanned and packed away before searching for their purse to pay?
Drives me crazy, they stand in the queue just staring at other peoples shopping on the conveyors, why dont they get their purse out then?

Also, paying by credit card when they have spent two quid, same routine, search for purse, open purse, shake purse up and down, pretend there is not enough change, pull out credit card, glasses, wrong pin number. So it goes on, put card away, put purse away.
No rush love.

When she's (ex) in the passenger seat and someone walks out in the road 20/30 mtrs ahead, she will never calmly advise you...'careful honey'. She will grab my arm while saying 'watch out' both at exactly the same time and like lightening, scaring the crap out of me.


A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. "Careful!" he said "CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my GOD! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my GOD! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!" The wife stared at him. "What in the world is wrong with you!? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?" The husband calmly replied "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving".

She's got this terrible habit of saying 'eh?' to everything I say - as if she hasn't heard me. So I just repeat what I said. After a while I realise I'm saying everything 2 or 3 times and we are beginning to sound like 2 doddering old deaf farts.

Lately I've been refusing to repeat myself . . and whadderyerknow!! She hears me the first time! The 'eh?' is just an annoying, irritating habit.

The going off in packs to the loo doesn't irritate me so much as intrigues me. I never really understood that. Just imagine a bunch of fellas doing the same. Or even asking someone if they're coming to the loo with you! It's just not right. I don't know, but I imagine even gay men would find it very odd!

The going off to the loo thing is to talk about our menfolk so they can't hear us of course!!

Never go shopping with my fella he spends hours and hours mainly in DIY and tool shops, I have no interest in shopping really at all, only do it when I have to.

So the loo thing is purely and simply gossip? You realise of course that blokes talk about their womens stuff, or even worse about other women while you're all congregating in the loo? :hihi::hihi::hihi:

Not that I would partake in those sort of activities, it's just what I've heard!...:suspect:

Is it all women or just mine that is useless at shopping? (which I find odd, you'd've thought that a species with such a love of shopping might actually be good at it? no?)
Ratehr mine will have us trapsing from one of the supermarket to the other, and back again due to a complete inability to think logically and systematically and then seems to be incapable of packing bags correctly.
For those women unsure of the procedure, No, you don't just sling stuff in as soon as they've been scanned, it starts at the other end.

You unpack the trolley onto the belt thoughtfully, yep frozen stuff together, bottles together, meat together, but give thought to what is going to go in what bag, unpack the trolley a bag load at a time, and put it on the belt in the order you want it off at and in the groupings you want to pack it in. Solid square/rectangular objects, such as yoghurt multipacks, meat trays work well as bag bottoms from which to work from

A bag should be packed fully and squarely, this facilitates two later steps, firstly, it makes the packed bags easier to stack in the trolley, and later the boot. and secondly, being a series of cubes the correctly packed bags are then more stable, thus when you arrive home, the groceries are still in the bags, upright and ready for lifting out.
If you jsut sling tins into a bag, along with some fruit, and some packets of sauce mix, and dump the loaf of bread on top.. it'll be all over the boot, the bread will be squashed and the end of the world will ensue.

This thread is funny! I never understand why some women complain about men leaving the toilet seat up. It doesn't bother me. Men don't complain that we leave it down so why should it bother us that they leave it up??

Well said Angel22, I totally agree ;)

I like shopping by myself, I can go where I want and stand around in a shop for as little or long as possible. I can be done quickly too.

Too right!

I hate it when the lady on the till says 'do you need any help with your packing?'
I' m the best packer in town! I walk through the saloon doors at Tesco's n all goes quiet. The ladies mutter to each other 'Wow! it's the fastest packer in town'

IT'S HEAVY STUFF TO THE BOTTOM.LIGHT STUFF TO THE TOP...:rant:
