For 16 years I have been trying to convince my husband that my kitchen counter is not a dumping ground for every single thing that enters the house. Every day I get home and clean off whatever junk has ended up there through the day and when I turn back around there is more. I've put boxes, baskets etc all over the place, even one on the counter, but nothing works.
He also leaves the soda cans next to the sink. We have a .05 deposit on each can so they need to be kept and returned, but I rinse them for storage so we don't get ants, but he wont do it until the area next to the sink is overflowing.
I tend to take a couple things out of the dryer and leave the rest, but since I'm in charge of laundry the only person that can annoy is me.
