When you live with someone, they can be very annoying. They get on your nerves.

A lot.

Maybe he does not replace the toilet paper roll when he uses it up. Maybe she squeezes the toothpaste from the middle instead of the bottom.

You have to just let that go. I usually take 10 seconds, say to myself, “What an asshole!” And then I move on with my life and I’m over it.

The thing is, we all have our own way of doing things. You’re never going to find someone who does everything just the way you would do it.

And, honestly, would you want to? How boring!

I love being invited into the mystery of why my partner thinks we should arrive at the airport two hours in advance, and even though I might not necessarily agree, I can do that to make him happy, as long as he can make me happy by never letting the gas tank go below 1/4 full.
