Oops, pardon! Wrong title. What I meant was 7 reasons why I want to slap Grumpy Boyfriend in the face. I must apologise if I seem a bit violent today.
The thing is, I was in the middle of writing a complex post yesterday (it involved a quote by Shakespeare) when my partner was interrupting me non-stop.
I set up the scene.
It’s more than 10pm. Your (so loved but so demanding!) baby is eventually asleep and you have an hour or so free before you collapse exhausted into bed. So you’re typing. The post is quite intense and philosophical.
You don’t want to sound like a tart or a dumb ass to your dearest readers. So you pay attention. A lot, even if your baby is right next to you, making the worst prouts (see my Frenchie lesson to see what it means) you have heard for a while. You are trying really hard to concentrate when le monstre is probably doing a very bad poop live, just in front of your eyes! Le bébé also snores like a pig, sorry, an angel (Always! My Baba is too cute to snore like un cochon.)
Donc, here I am, being all intelligent (or pretending to be) and Grumpy Boyfriend won’t stop commenting or talking to me. When the only thing I want to do is to write a decent post (if it’s possible).
Impossible! No need to say that I just give up on writing a metaphysical post. I might even never post it.
Pourquoi? Because I have a better idea! I am going to have my revenge. Instead of having an argument with the person who happens to be my other half, I am going to write about him. He might even read this right now lecteurs!
You see, Grumpy Boyfriend secretly subscribed to my blog. I reckon he wanted to check out if I was talking about him. And every time he receives an email with my latest post, he is taking the mick out of me without even reading what I am publishing. I know, he is super rude…
But today, he will have it for his money! Chéri! This post is for you!
So here are 7 reasons why I want to slap Grumpy Boyfriend in the face:
- When he puts a small plate in the top section of the dishwasher. I explained to him a million times that it blocks it and he should put it in the lower section of the bloody machine!
- When he doesn’t close the wardrobe door. How difficult is it?!
- When I ask him a simple question but instead of answering it with just one word (when it’s totally possible), he just goes on for 5 minutes without even answering what I asked in the first place. At this stage, Frenchie Mummy is probably asleep.
- When he leaves his tea bags in the sink. He may not have discovered that we have a so-called bin… Ok, I am unfair here. I probably told Grumpy Boyfriend off a thousand times and he is not doing it anymore. VICTOIRE!!!!
- When he doesn’t help to get the baby to sleep. This one needs an explanation. Frenchie Mummy spends 30 minutes trying to make Baba asleep but gives up because le petit monstre won’t have any of it. She decides to go and have a shower to relax a bit (she is quite stressed out at this point, so she deserves it). And what do I discover when I get out? Baba jumping around like it’s party time in his Jumperoo! Le bébé was supposed to sleep!!!! No need to say that Baba went to bed late that time…
- When I catch Grumpy Boyfriend clicking on an article on the Daily Mail about Miranda Kerr or any other fit bird who dares to be slimmer than me… You remember when I described that I broke a mirror once? That was one of those moments. Moi, jalouse? Mais non!!!
- When I mop the floor in the kitchen for the third time in a week and he drops something within an hour. At this stage, Frenchie Mummy decides to be on strike and not do any housework for a month…
And you? When do you feel like killing your dearest other half? Please feel free to comment. I want to laugh and I promise I will never tell your boyfriend/ husband / partner you shared it with me…
Disclosure: this post never happened. Someone must have hacked the Frenchie Mummy Blog. I deny any responsibility for the list above. I didn’t write this post…
Ha ha, that’s hilarious. I actually killed my other half once. His body is still under the lawn in the place I used to live many years ago. Nobody noticed, they thought he had emigrated! If you want to kill your boyfriend, if you message me I’ll give you some tips about best methods. Obviously, you’ll need to make it look like a suicide or an accident, so I have plenty of useful tips. 🙂
I am not sure I can approve your comment…
Oh that Sneaky grumpy man! Argh! You have been found out! We support you! #Im with Her! #FridayFrivolity
Lol. I loved your blogpost!
My mother and father have taught me to respect a lady and to always be a gentleman. I truly hope that I never become a Grumpy Boyfriend!
I want to slap my hubby in the face when the baby monitor goes off and he turns and looks at me!! or as soon as he smells a bad nappy been prepared he legs it up the stairs like Hussain bolt suddenly needing the toilet where he sits on twitter whilst I clean sed nappy!!
#lazymen #whoneedsthem #wonderwoman
hahaha ;like the comparison. Thanks for stopping by x
Hahaha this is a brilliant idea – I would like to hear what he thought about it. I would kill my grumpy boyfriend for never tucking the chair in under the breakfast but leaving it in the middle of the room! Seriously? An-oy-ing! #KCACOLS
He pretented he didn’t read it but I reckon one of the comments is his under a nickname… I asked him but he denied LOL. BTW, I found all your lovely long comments from last week in my spam folder. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a second time!!!! xxx
Snoring. That is what makes me want to smother him with a pillow! I have tried nudging, shoving, kicking… #KCACOLS
Haha hopefully I don’t have too much of an issue about that grumpy boyfriend doesn’t do it often. Thanks for stopping by I hope to see you again x
Haha I love it! Honestly I think most of the time my other half wants to slap me, I’m the annoying one in the relationship – a combination of being young and immature, and having ADHD so I am forgetful, messy and can’t pay attention to save my life! Girlfriend from hell right here haha! #KCACOLS
Lol.. you had me laughing through that one and saying ‘ditto’ all over.
Oh yes, Misery Guts is guilty of many of these. The one that drives me crackers is that he always dumps all the clean plastic containers from the dishwasher on the draining board, instead of putting them away in the plastics cupboard. One of these days I’m going to throw them out the window… #KCACOLS
You are so entitled to do so LOL. Thanks for reading x
Haha! Very funny. Sometimes you need to vent and then delete it, don’t you? #KCACOLS
My peeve is when she takes an afternoon nap, wakes up all refreshed and carries on as though nothing’s happened, but when I try I get slapped awake….
That’s life! hahaha Thaks for stopping by
I have a grumpy hubs who subscribes to my blog- I just wrote an article for Suburban Misfit Mom on our sex life and his moodiness. Still married thank goodness.
😉 Me? Slap, kill? Never. Well perhaps when he is talking to me after I tell him I need to hear this AND I am wearing a headset, then he complains that I am not listening…hello?? Thanks for the laugh! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday
Happy I made you laugh, thanks for the great comments x
I love this post, very funny. My hubby leaves his shoes in the middle of the floor on my side of the bed, why!
My other half doesn’t subscribe to my blog – not sure if that’s better or worse!! She never does anything to annoy me though – honestly… #KCACOLS
You must be lying!!! So happy to see you back ?
Another funny post! My husband never closes the wardrobe doors and it’s so annoying!!!! #KCACOLS #eatsleepblogrt
Love it! My hubby does 1000 things that drive me nuts, but I love him dearly. I mean how hard is it to close your dresser drawers? or the kitchen cupboards?? And yes, every time I sweep he gets out a bag of chips or makes popcorn and the crumbs and bits are everywhere! Glad we can connect and share our frustrations.
Ha ha ha! Will join you on the house work strike! #KALCOLS
Always… I hate housework! xx
BTW thanks for all the RTs today x
I enjoy the denial at the end! The things that annoy me about my other half are similar. If the baby is about to go to bed and I’ve mad everything quiet and calm, I’ll nip upstairs only to come down to some sort of riotous disco where Daddy and baby are dancing and running around to exciting music. Grrrr!
What is wrong with men!!!? haha, thanks for stopping by x
Forgot to say #EatSleepBlogRT x
This is too funny. I agree sometimes they are like another kid. I think I went completely insane when my hubby left his cereal bowl out after I just cleaned the kitchen counters for the 3rd time. Ahh but they have some good points to I guess…lol.
Oh dear….lets see…
*When he leaves food waste in the sink (WTF!?!!)
*When he leaves empty packaging all over the counter….
*When he undresses and leaves his clothes all over the house…
*When he keeps saying he’ll do something and it takes months for it to happen…
That’s at the top of my head! haha
Ooops! that makes my list 11 and not 7! Grumpy Boyfriend does that too!!! Hahaha. Thanks for reading x
Fabulous post, whoever hacked your blog, wrote a fabulously funny piece which all us ladies can relate to. I must admit, that Mr. Orange Dog doesn’t really cause too much bother, but then we don’t live together. But and I mean BUT I started reading this post on Saturday morning and have only just finished as he interrupted by visiting! I think that is pretty bad form, I mean, how dare he interrupt my enjoyment of Frenchie Mummy’s blog!
This is very bad indeed. But we can forgive him. He must be of very good company if he manages to stop you from reading my post!??? xx
I think we all have such a Grumpy Boyfriend with all this reasons to kill them:D
I thought so too! LOL Thanks for reading x
#EatSleepBlogRT I so want to hear his response. Plus your lucky Mr F hasn’t worked out where the dishwasher is yet…or the kitchen :/
I don’t think we will ever have it!!! Thanks for reading x
Haha! The bloody dishwasher…. How hard is it to load the thing properly? My Hubby likes to put rubbish next to the bin, not in it! And laundry next to be basket, not in it! I have even recently caught him hiding washing under the bed ‘to put in the wash later’. They laundry bin is NEXT TO THE BED! I must admit these things are happening less and less. He is slowly getting the message.
Very well written! Do you want the number for Relate? Or alternatively, I can recommend a good divorce lawyer 🙂 Alison x #chucklemums
We are not married! I can’t even divorced him… LOL Thanks for reading x
Hahaha I had exactly the same a couple of weeks ago, whilst in a complete flow with my writing. I bit his head off as all reasonable bloggers would do. Last night I found myself in the same blissful situation – I couldn’t type the words fast enough…then I heard my husband approach and…silently skulk past me. I felt a little bit mean but I got the post done so hey ho no harm done!. #chucklemums
I don’t think men are capable of properly loading the dishwasher. Mine puts glasses on the top rack turned UP so all the water collects inside them, tres annoying! Thanks for linking up to #Chucklemums xx
Oh I do love this! Why do they fill up the washing basket and then just continue to walk past it without loading it up? Why, if they are the last one out of bed, don’t they just put the sheets back? Why won’t they take down the bloody recycling! Honestly, sometimes it would be easier to live alone…well, the financial side helps 🙂 Still, someone has to love him!
Love it! And what he did grumpy boyfriend say?!
I reckon one of the comments above are his! lol He wants me to write a nice post about him. To be fair,I need to do that as he is a very nice person… It’s not his fault. He is just a man, something wrong with his biology… xx
This is so funny and reminds me why I Divorced ( twice) sadly my Son is the most annoying male ever but I can’t divorce him!
I don’t have an other half to complain about (a bonus of being single!) but my ex used to annoy me most of all by pretending (I’m SURE he was pretending) to sleep through the babies crying during the night. Grrrr.
Every single time the Hubster loads the dishwasher I just want to scream. For the first time I decided not to reorganize it, when it was done I made the Hubster empty it. He was shrieking that everything was still dirty. No kidding. I don’t harp about dish placement because it doesn’t matter…
Now he loads it my way.
Forgot to say #momsterslink
Hahah only seven? I think I could write a three part novel on the reasons why I want to kill my husband, I discover a new reason each day! The worst for me is that every morning I come down the stairs and his dirty nutri bullet glass is stood by the sink, not rinsed out, with a knife with peanut butter beside it, again not even rinsed, and a trail of gloop along the counter. It irrationally enrages me to the point that any day now I’m going to flip and the nutribullet will be gone forever….in the bin! #momsterslink
Grumpy Boyfriend does the same with his jam!!!! Another reason… Thanks for reading x
Ha ha the other half eh? Can’t live with em can’t live without them. Although in this house its me that leaves tea bags in the sink… #EatSleepBlogRT
Putting dirty dishes on the kitchen side instead of in the dishwasher that is right underneath the kitchen side. It drives me mad. Sometimes divorce is just too kind. #fridayfrolics
My husband also subscribes to my blog, I know he reads the posts but always forgets half of what he read within minutes.. sigh… #momsterslink
I bet you mine just reads through quickly! hahaha.Men, we won’t change them… Thanks for stopping by.I hope to see you again x
The tea bags in the sink things gets me too. Or when he wipes down the kitchen counter and then LEAVES THE DIRTY KITCHEN TOWEL JUST SITTING THERE! There’s a bin right in front of you. Ooh, I’m all fired up now. #FridayFrolics
hahaha and you have all the reasons to be! And then Grumpy Boyfriend tells me that I exaggerate too much… Thanks for reading x
Haha brilliant! My slap reflex is triggered when “Daddy Pig” leaves a scatty bit of milk in the carton and opens a new one. Then denies it’s because he doesn’t want to deal with the empty one stating it’s because he doesn’t want to “mix milks”. Hmmf. Brilliant post. V funny x #Momsterslink
When he thinks that whatever he is doing is more important than whatever I am doing and expects me to drop everything to rush to his side and help him. Women’s work gets no respect. Sigh.
Back again for #effitfriday. I bet this has caused some debate in your house!!
hahaha yes! Soem members of his family discovered about my blog. I think his auntie loves me because of this post. The other day she was telling him off for yet not proposing to me! LOL
Hahahaha what an awful hacker you have for writing all of these truths! I may want to slap hubby for his inability to make a decision ever, then I make it and he disagrees with it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. #FridayFrolics
That’s a classic too! x
The husband has a very annoying habit of answering my question with a question. I answer his question before I realise that he never actually answered mine. The Brad Pitt giff brightened my morning. Thanks for linking up to #FridayFrolics
Cool! Why do they never answer our questions!!!! Thanks for reading x
So funny, there are many times I want to slap my other half. I cannot list them all! #fridayfrolics
Pahaha!!! Brilliant! The thing that my other half does that really annoys me is leaving food out of the fridge. He’ll make some toast and leave the butter out. Or have some cereal and leave the milk out! Aaargh! #PoCoLo
Ha ha, great way of getting revenge, love it!
This made me laugh! I want to kill, I mean slap, Ian probably 7 times a day for various reasons! Thanks for linking up to #SundayBest x
Hahaha!! Love it!! I can totally relate on most of these…especially taking 5 minutes to answer a question! Why?!!! Thanks for joining us at #Sundaybest, hope you see you again tomorrow!
Ha ha! Loved this! If I had to explain all my reasons of wanting to slap, This would turn into a whole post in your comments! I hope your other half reads! Excellent post x
He did. He now wants me to write a nice one about him. He doesn’t want people to think that he is a horrible man. He is not. It’s just me being cheeky and annoyed. Thanks for reading and commenting on two posts tonight x
I can totally relate to this post, as most of us can.. or should. Lol. Let me know if after reading this he straightens out… if so maybe I should write about music hubby. Lol #momsterslink
Big disappointment… No change LOL
Haha! All perfectly good reasons to be annoyed! I particularly dislike the ruining of recently cleaned areas!
Thanks so much for joining us on #FridayFrolics. Hope to see you next time.
Yes, poor old husband gets the death stare multiple times a day. As well as gesturing behind his back and mouthing obscenities…. Thanks for linking with #effitfriday
I CAN TOTALLY RELATE TO THIS. I hate it when I have to tidy up the tea bags that are left by the kitchen sink from my partner! I mean, the bin is right next to the kitchen sink, it’s a simple movement, probably easier than just leaving it by the kitchen sink.
Also, why can’t their cover the salmon before putting it in the microwave to cook? It explodes every time!
And don’t get me started on the clothes and shoes that get left in random places and the wallet that never can get found.
Saying all of that, I love her and there is nothing I would change about her. She is the best Mum and wife I could ever of asked for.
All the best,
(bet you didn’t see that coming!) ?
hahah, no I didn’t! For a minute I was like ‘what? Hold on? I didn’t know ytravellingtots were two girls’. I bet actually that is you who does all the things you mention! I can’t believe a second it’s not you!
I’m the tidy one =) Loved the blog, made me laugh. – Mark
Ah, the dishwasher – a cause of many marital disharmony, we have different dishwasher-stacking strategies here too, and of course mine is better. MOH always seems to answer the “what do you want for dinner tonight” with a question, usually “what have we got” my response is now the same as yesterday apart from what we had for tea. Drives me potty. Then he’ll go out of his way to request something we don’t have. So now if I’m feeling stroppy (I know, it has been known) for me that translates to take-away, or better still, going out!!
Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo and hope Grumpy Boyfriend survives X
he did, I actually wrote another post this week to say how wonderful he is lol. thanks for your lovely comment x
Oh the tea bags in the sink. My Monster In Law does that and it drives me mad!!
Mrs OMG mops the floors three times a day. God help anyone who walks in from outside without removing their shoes.
Haha! Love this! You always crack me up!
I can relate – especially closing the wardrobe door and mopping floors! Argh. Well, Frenchy baby was happy with his late night party 🙂 x
I’d say I dislike it when he nit picks my sentences. I’d use a word just for the sake of finishing a sentence and instead of answering the question, he’d attack that word.
I’ve gotta be reaally specific when I talk to him!
men! They can be annoying sometimes but we love them. Thanks for stopping by x
I feel that last one so much…with everything I clean though, not just the floor!
This is great.
I love this post. You had me at the title because I swear men gets PMS! My man gets into theses mood monthly I swear! Often I ask him “So when is your next work trip?” I rather deal with three kids then a Grumpy Man.
haha that’s funny! My man is not so grumpy. I think I am worse than him but I needed a vilain in my blog! ?
My OH clips his toenails in the living room so they ping all over the carpet. That’s fairly gross but grossest is when he takes his underpants off and flosses his sweaty undercarriage with them before tossing them on the floor. Sometimes I sit and fantasise about burying him under the patio.
haha I am not surprised! Men… I do’t get them sometimes! Thanks for reading x
This post totally cheered me up, I was feeling so down and this just completely cheered me up, so thank you! I was laughing so hard and so much. Just pure brilliance this post! I think men are just as moody, if not more moodier than women. When my husband gets into a mood, I always ask him, when are you having that boys night out???!!
haha, to be fair to Grumpy Boyfriend, I reckon I am the moody one though. LOL Thanks for commenting x
I knew from item one on the kill-I mean SLAP- list that I would be able to relate! I was right! My husband and I have been married for going on 6 years with 4 kids to show for it, and while I love him dearly, I’ve made a few of these lists myself! I would say shopping with husband is at the top of my list. He shops backwards in the grocery store (picks up bread first and it ends up smushed at the bottom of the cart). From there he strays from my carefully-thought-out list and buys 527 extra things, and in the checkout aisle wonders how it is we spend “so much” on groceries?! ?
Men! strange creatures! lol thanks for reading x
When my wife dumps her coffee grounds in the sink!!!!!
haha we all have bad little habits
You’ve made my day reading this
Dont kill him yet (its nearly valentines day xxxxxx
haha I won’t , I will restrain myself! LOL, thanks for reading x
Fantastic! Great read on monday morning! Thanks for the laugh! xx
