One person couldn’t resist asking if she took issue with his toasting or buttering.
‘Just the toasting! He puts the bread in SHORT SIDE DOWN,’ she explained. ‘It only toasts 2/3 of the piece and he’s fine with that! Why???’
Actress Gabourey Sidibe revealed that her boyfriend, Brandon Frankel, is no longer allowed to use her blender, though she didn’t reveal why.
‘Yesterday I announced “I don’t want to share a blender with you anymore!” and I meant it,’ she tweeted.

And she isn’t the only one who is getting territorial in the kitchen.
Sociology professor Dan Hirschman admitted to telling his partner, ‘Stop leaving your cup on my side of the sink.’
Interestingly enough, many of the fights revolved around food or were kitchen related, with one woman taking issue with how her significant other cuts tomatoes.

A lot of the petty arguments were brought on by cleaning.
‘WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU’VE NEVER CLEANED A TOILET BEFORE?!’ one person recalled asking her partner.
‘My fiance asked me today if I had “ever thought about changing the hand towel in the bathroom.” We’ve lived in this house for 6 months and he thought he was drying his hands on the same dirty towel?!’ someone else shared.

‘STOP ASKING ME WHAT TIME I PLAN ON GETTING UP IN THE MORNING. I DON’T PLAN THINGS LIKE THAT ANYMORE,’ someone else tweeted.
And plenty of people admitted that they can’t stand the sound of their significant other’s chewing, breathing, and throat clearing.
‘I am cracking up at how many of you hate how your partners breathe,’ Oluo commented.
