DUMB THINGS: Their Partners Do That Drive Them Crazy During Self-Isolation

No matter how well you think you know someone, there’s always going to be a surprise. Self-isolation has brought many of those surprises to light. Here are some of the annoying behaviors people have seen from their partners that’ve driven them completely bonkers.

  • “My husband has used this time to learn calculus. When he’s focused, he spins his pen and drops it on the table at irregular intervals. It’s driving me up a f—ing wall.” (Kelly, 31, New York)
  • “My boyfriend eats almonds by slowly nibbling on the end of one, then shoving it gently into the side of his cheek until his face is bursting with them like a cartoon squirrel. I hate it! I hate him! It’s driving me insane.” (Diedre, 31, Australia)
  • “The tweeting is really out of hand. He spends 90% of his time tweeting and laughing at his phone.” (Molly, 32, Maine)
  • “Molly is really grumpy all the time. I’ll be like, “Hey, Molly, want me to make you a nice lunch?” And she’ll be like, “Unghh, what’slunch?!” It’s a pain in the ass!” (Nick, 31, Maine…Molly’s boyfriend)
  • “Sometimes, it feels like I’m in some sort of Truman Show reboot where my partner was cast specifically to make me go slowly insane.” (Daniel, 29, Pennsylvania)
  • “The vast majority of the time we have harmony, except for the YouTube conspiracy theory documentaries. I never realized he was into those?” (Rich, 41, New York)
  • “How they love to make themself tea or coffee and then drink a quarter of the cup. Ninety percent of the time, that’s all they drink, and then they let the cup just sit there.” (James, 27, New York)
