Perspective

My husband has this irritating habit that he must note down all expenses in his irritating little program on the computer as soon as he can. It drives me crazy. Yesterday I was in the mall and as soon as I paid for coffee I got a message from him (while he was at work) to place the receipts on his computer table. Now how am I supposed to do that if I’m still in the mall?

When he comes back from Saudi Arabia in the middle of the night, he checks if I have put all the receipts on his table and if I missed one when I get up in the morning he has sent me a message telling me to put it in the right place. I’m sure he is itching to wake me up in the middle of the night to ask me about it.

On the other hand it’s just because he is so organized that I don’t have to worry about anything. When we travel he has already planned everything and I know we won’t face any problems. He loves to make me feel pampered and comfortable. He’ll upgrade our flights or book us in a nice waiting lounge.

Then at home all our important documents have been scanned, backed up and organized so that if ever needed I would know exactly where to find everything. In our ten years of marriage I cannot remember a single instance when we lost an important document or left home without one.

So even though he drives me crazy sometimes, I really can’t do without him.

  6. My husband tries to organize my pantry and silverware drawer when I’m not looking. I just pretend to not see. Some quirks are better than others, and this I can live with. Your husband has a good one too.

  8. This made me laugh the whole time I was reading it! I could be your husband’s identical twin – well, at least in the behavior you’ve described. I do the EXACT same thing with all of our receipts, log, scan, balance… Now I know how my husband feels when I badger him for receipts!! 😀
