Boyfriend + Pet Peeve = Awesome Entertainment.

Last night marked the 155th time that Ryan cut me with his toenails.

Now as many of you know this is my number 1 pet-peeve regarding my relationship with Ryan.

(So as you can see, we don't have very many problems.)

But wtf?


It's been almost five years of me yelling at him to keep his toenails trimmed, and still after all this time, he slices me. I think he is passively trying to make me bleed to death by slowly and methodically cutting his toenails in the exact way as to "accidentally" tear open my skin as often as possible.

Perhaps all long term relationships have these quirks, but I need advice.

Do I
1) deal with him cutting me and just leave it as the #1 pet peeve?
2) drug him and saw off his toes?
3) make him get weekly pedicures?
4) make him wear socks to bed?
5) drug him and pull off his toenails (as opposed to cutting off his entire toes)?

Any practical suggestions would be greatly appreciated it.

Also if you've been in a relationships for a long period of time and have advice on how to deal with the other's "issues" that would be super fantastic.

Now for some Neosporin and band-aids.

  1. I would say the most you can do is just keep bitching. Thats what I do. My top pet-peeve with John is his inability to find a dirty clothes hamper when he changes. I bitch about it constantly which then causes him to occasionally actually throw the clothes into the hamper just so I will shut up. So like I said just keep bitching and it may eventually get better, or you may need to start wearing pajama pants to bed...
