For women: extreme indecisiveness, bossy/controlling (oddly enough these two are often found in the same woman via passive aggression), disrespectful, always blaming others

For men: disrespectful, laziness/slacking off, excessive profanity, irresponsible, dishonest

I have to admit Braunwyn, your post was funny...I don't think you meant it to be humorous but it was.

I'm not that patient of a person in general, although I have learned to be a lot more patient once I became a mother, but there is one thing that drive me off the wall:

*Talking loudly on the phone while sitting on the couch next to me when I'm trying to watch my favorite program. Honestly, we have at least 4 other rooms in the house.

It's funny, in the past at least. I agree about the talking loudly bit as well when you're into something. Add a pair of headphones and, um, yea. Both my dh and dad do that. They'll talk with the head phones on, or scream really.

We all have our things. I have mine. Any way, I called my dad about 20 minutes into it when I was on my way to the CVS for supplies. When I get back my darling is still going at it. I told him to cut the crap and chill out. My dad did not like that and told me to, no demanded, that I do my wifely duties lol. I did of course, tho, my dh says I suck as a nurse. Clearly, if he were shooting blood all over the place, or lost the finger, he'd be at the emergency room.

I'm sure I sound heartless, but panic does something to my brain. I don't like it. It's not my way.

So, how about you?

Years ago, I read a short article in the newspaper and it said this: A woman should NEVER consider marrying a man until she's lived with him during a cold...

I thought that was so right on and funny as it described my husband to a tee!...When he's sick, he's dying and he'll argue with me that the fever thermometer is broke because it doesn't show he has a fever and he knows he does...LOL

Things I have trouble with in both sexes: immaturity, the poor me syndrome, the type that believes the world revolves around them, people that blame everyone else for their problems, a judgmental attitude, and constant negativity.
