Infuriating Things Your Partner Does

So been going out with the new gf for 6 months now and questioning if it's all worth it. 

beautiful, good job, good ride...........but fking crazy and completely irrational at times.

Went out for a drive in her car with her to look at a new car for me, was a 30 minute drive (15 miles or so) and when at the garage the boy said btw you're tyre is completely worn on the inner edge, had a look and right enough. it's quite bad so £50 for a replacement to be done next week.

Driving back and she's not speaking so i twig something is up, so after a long period of silence she says "this is why i don't want to be driving my car long distances like this, this car isn't new and shouldn't be driven far distances as faults like this happen. It's a 2016 Peugeot 2008. 

So i explain to her a tyre wears out over 20k miles, is just part of owning a car and is £50 for a new tyre, even offered to take it out to get it done for her. But shes not having it and says that it's my fault and we should only drive the car in town as it's not made for long distances like the one we just drove.

Then comes all the chat about how ignorant i am about things and that if i drove more carefully the tyre would still be fine. So after 15 minutes of trying to comfort her  i snap after and say she needs to go do some education on the matter before saying such nonsense. She finishes off with saying i am just too argumentative for her and she needs to go away and think.

She text me asking if I'm ready to apologise yet.

Things like this are just pointless and infuriating. If we can't deal with such a minor issue then what hope do we have? There is no logic to what she's saying, no need for the argument and it really drags you down at times!

understand what you say mate but it's a frequent occurrence where she refuses to shift or be reasoned with. 

She flat out refuses to eat thai/chnese/japanese because she hates "chinese people"

She drunk drove home one night, i asked her wtf she thinks shes doing, her response was her drink driving is better than my standard driving and she's a perfectly capable drink driver.

Were discussing football, she said that injuries happen not because of the tackle but the player falling over and hurting himself. I calmly corrected her and was told that i don't respect her and feel threatened because she knows more than me. 

I could go on but it's difficult when someone's mind won't budge and they are always right. 

this is mental

I have gone to Dubai in my then capacity as on-expenses oil w****r.

As much as I had a great time, I did come away thinking I would never be spending my own money and choosing to go there.

A horrible place, where, albeit you can have fun given the right circumstances, I just dont see the appeal.

Pure, distilled essence of LOOK AT ME!!!!!!!

I know I'm a couple of days behind the Dubai chat.

This was the same reason I went to Dubai, the company I was with had a base there and I needed to spend a couple of nights there from time to time. It is so overrated, a building site with shops, full of utter wallopers. I would not pay to go there.

On holiday at the moment so decided to have breakfast out. Wanted a roll and a cup of coffee. She went and ordered and I got a table outside 

Breakfast arrives, have a bite at my roll and a drink of coffee and it’s the most sickly sweet thing I’ve ever tasted.

 What did you order me to drink says I, vanilla latte says she. I have never ordered or drank a vanilla latte in my life 

WTAF?

That's what you get for eating and drinking at the same time.

I appear to be in the minority in that I like Dubai/the UAE. The Marina and around that area are great places to stay. I love the extreme heat. I also love the Sunday champagne brunches the 5star hotels do and when stuffed/pished, come out and straight onto the beach and into the warm water.......

I also like Dubai (been 4 times) but the last time was probably 17 or 18 years ago so before it got really popular with the social media celebs.  I liked it for the weather, the luxury of the hotels but mostly because it was a great midway place beteen the UK and SE Asia to spend 5 or 6 days on the way home.

To be fair, I'm really bad at this. I rarely use sat nav but my special awareness must be fucking dreadful as it genuinely takes me 10 times visiting a place before i get to know it. As well as this i can easily get lost when I've just come into a new area, not knowing how to get back out.

I know folk who can learn shit like this first time so it's definitely a particular type of intelligence (one that me and your missuses don't have).

 

As opposed to your regular awareness?

 

Spatial awareness ffs

She apparently has a greater sense of smell than me. Everyday she will ask can you smell shit/pee/burning etc, and when I can't smell it she's pissed off at me for not being able to smell it.

Smelling burning can be a sign of a brain tumour. Worth getting checked. 

Of course it can also be a sign that something is on fire. 

My wife has twice smelled burning in the car that i've initially dismissed. Once when i forgot to put the lid on the oil bit and once when the clutch burned out.

Are you saying you didn't smell the clutch? Think it's you that should get checked.

I did eventually, but she'd been smelling "something" for about an hour before it properly packed up and smoke started coming out the engine. 

It wasn't exactly a traditional burning smell either, it had a sort of fruity piquante bouquet with a note of vinegar.

You must drive a fancy motor then.  Any time I've driven inclines for any length of time and smelt the clutch it's unmistakable and actually quite alarming.
