Husbands are very different creatures than single men. Perhaps it’s just an inevitable side effect of sharing pretty much everything with another human being, but married men can be pricklier and more prone to annoyance.
Things that never would have gotten under their skin during their unmarried days are suddenly incredibly grating. So, if you feel like testing your hubby’s limits—you know, just for fun—
We shall be looking at 31 things that are all but guaranteed to rile him up.
1. Pointing out where he’s balding.
Look, there is such a thing as constructive criticism… and then there’s any acknowledgment whatsoever of a receding hairline.
You can bet that your husband is acutely aware of the situation—he sees the hair in the shower drain every morning—but that doesn’t mean he wants to be reminded of it.
(Free tip: If you really want to get on his nerves, make suggestions about how he can reverse the hair loss, such as, “Maybe you should wear fewer hats.” Then, sit back and watch the vein throb on his very bare forehead.)
2. Being a backseat driver.
Even if a guy has no clue where he’s going, his pride won’t let him ask for directions. And that includes getting advice from anyone else in the car, no matter how useful it might be.
Backseat driving bothers him so much because it suggests his innate sense of direction isn’t infallible—which, of course, it isn’t, but he doesn’t want you to know that. “You should’ve taken a left back there” is a sentence that burns into a man’s soul deeper than “I want a divorce.”
3. Putting your freezing cold feet on him while you’re both under the covers.
Just when your husband’s gotten comfortable under the covers, your ice cold feet come toward him like a missile, rubbing against his warm skin and sending a chill down his spine. It’s funny to you, but, to him, it’s an act of unprovoked hostility.Please Scroll Below for NEXT Page to continue
