    Things Your Spouse Does That Puzzles You

    Thought this would be a fun thread for some of us married people here on this board.

    My wife has me completely puzzled. I guess I'm not a female so I'll never understand, but why would a woman drive 2.5 hours just to get her hair done.

    We live in Norwalk. You think she would be able to find someone down here. Nope. After 4 years she still drives all the way back.

    This time really puzzles me, though. She took off Friday to get her hair done, knowing she has to be back in DSM Saturday morning to interview people for a job opening. We then have to drive back to home for a benefit.

    Why not save 5 hours of driving and find someone closer. It also saves a tank or 2 of gas along with helping keep miles off the new vehicle.

    I guess I just don't understand this.

    What's with all the pillows on the couch? We have 10 decorative pillows on our couch. I'd like to be able to sit on the couch without having to displace a half dozen pillows.

    Since you're a man, I'll cheat and give you an answer:

    It's not about the hair; it's about the relationship with that hair stylist and the people in the salon.

    Geesh. Some men need to have it spelled out for them...

    This would be some of it, but REALLY, women are paranoid as hell about having their hair messed up or done wrong. Once they find someone they trust, it is hard to get them to leave that and risking trying someone new.

    I noticed my mother would do the same thing. Maybe your wife feels some connection with the lady cutting her hair.

    God that is so true. I also hate when women think they can place their purse anywhere. Including in the most annoying spot possible.

    Here's another one, don't ever get between a Women and her soaps.

    My wife is an Italian princess with OCD. I could write a book. She is a hairstylist though, Bellz, so I could hook your wife up.

    Re: Things Your Spouse Does That Puzzles You

    OK I have not been married long but my wife and I have lived together for 2 years. I will put something down on a flat surface in our apartment and if I leave it there for more then 12 hours it gets "put away". She never tells me where she will just jam said object in the closet or in an empty drawer and then forget where she put it. The thing that drives me totally crazy is when 3 days later she askes me where it is. The only thing she does not do that with is a fan. That she coils up the power cord and places it under a spare dining room chair we have sitting up against the wall.

    Re: Things Your Spouse Does That Puzzles You

    My husband used to have me puzzled a lot. Then I watched most of the MacGyver TV series, and all of the Get Smart TV series, and now I understand at least where he gets some of his weird habits - from two of his favorite tv shows he watched as a kid.

    Re: Things Your Spouse Does That Puzzles You

    The irony of the hair stylist issue is that my wife would do the same thing, but then when it came to picking a doctor or lawyer she'd just open the phone book and pick the one closest to the house.

    we've moved three times since we've been together. every time my wife writes in HUGE letters on 5 sides of the box "FRAGILE - DO NOT DROP" on every box she packs, and every box the packers from teh moving company pack. I'm like "if every box is marked fragile doesn't that give the impression that actually none of them are?"

    And I'm with you about the pillows and also for us it's candles that aren't for use, most of which are still wrapped in clear wrap. we have a policy after 6 years of marraige now. If she buys a pillow she has to throw one out. same for candles.
