This is about the disgusting habits of my husband...or do the majority of men do this?

First gross habit: He picks his nose, pulls out a winner, rolls it up and flicks it onto the floor, sometimes it lands on the couch...gross.
Why not just get up and get a Kleenex???

Second gross habit: When he cooks (for the entire family) he likes to taste test...sounds okay, right? Well, it's not okay when he sticks the spoon down his throat like children do when they are licking cake batter from a spoon. Then he doesn't wash it off, he sticks the spoon right back into the food that we're all supposed to eat...gross.
Can't he at least rinse the spoon off?

Third and most annoying habit: I call this one the Captain Morgan Scratch. Whenever we are about to go to bed, he takes off his pants/shorts. He likes to sleep in his boxers...fine, I don't care. But every night without failure he props one leg up on the bed (the Captain Morgan stand), sticks his hand down his boxers and scratches like he has crabs. Most of the time he does this while I'm sitting on the bed, and it's right in my face. It's not just a little light scratch, he digs in. Sometimes I can't help but to laugh because I think most men would cringe if they saw him. And yep, you guessed it...he doesn't even wash his hands.
Sometimes he's on the couch with his hand down his boxers, and he's playing with it...I think, beats me...just take your hand out of your boxers.
The really gross part about his bad habit is when we had our first born. He used to scratch and then make her a bottle, without washing his hands!! I use to make up excuses so I wouldn't hurt his feelings, while not giving her the bottle. "Oh, look...I think I see something floating in her milk...I'll make her a new one!" To me it is the same as making a bottle with his butt cheeks. Finally one day I lied after getting back from the doctors office with our baby. I told him that the doctor said that it looked like she was getting an infection on the far back of her we should be certain to wash our hands everytime we make a bottle.
Now what would happen if women did the Captain Morgan Scratch...disgusting, right? So to all the men out there who are guilty...STOP. Your woman doesn't like it, but she may be too nice to say that it's just gross.
My daughter begin to pick up this habit of sitting on the couch with her hand down her pants...I stopped that quick!!! I hope my son will never be the type to stick his hands down his boxers and do whatever it is men do.
At least take it to the bathroom!

My husband has gross habits...

Thanks for letting me vent...

    Wow, you have my sympathy. I think you should be honest and tell him what you endure. He has to be honest with himself and view things the way you see them and hopefully he corrects his actions! Good Luck

    That is the best advice. Honesty and openness seem foreign in a lot of relationships. Just remember, a little at a time. It is too easy to open the flood gates, and before you know it both parties are airing grievances at high decibels.

    Ha! My boyfriend does that Captain Morgan scratch every night when he comes home from work. He'll be standing in the bedroom telling me about his day and scratching like there's no tomorrow. And if I say anything he's like oh sorry its just habit. He picks his nose and flicks it too which I think is just revolting! And I just found a pile of fingernail clippings he tossed behind the couch! Gross!

    I've been guilty of most of that at some time or another but my favorite cat used to watch me clip my nails and chase the curly bits across the room and eat 'em. FAR OUT. First time an animal ever cleaned up after me. I really loved that cat.
