You love the person you’re with, obviously. It’s just that sometimes they get so irritating that you want to tell them to p*ss off forever, just so you don’t have to listen to them chewing ice, or jiggling their legs under the table, or mispronouncing Kim Kardashian’s name.
For Teresa Turner, the annoying factor comes down to her misophonia.
Misophonia, if you didn’t know, is a sensitivity to certain noises. Teresa can’t handle listening to people eating loudly, so when her husband, Rob, insisted on playing a video of someone crunching over and over again, it was the final straw.
‘I just found this video of a person crunching really loudly, and she told me to stop playing it,’ said Rob.
‘I just played it to her over and over again, so she went upstairs and then I just saw this notification on Facebook saying I was for sale or something.’
Yup, Teresa had put Rob up for sale on Facebook.
Posting on the ‘sell it Kings Lynn’ Facebook page, Teresa shared a picture of her husband along with a description listing his brilliant qualities.
‘I have a 33 year old husband that is no longer needed due to getting on my nerves,’
‘I don’t want no money he is FREE. He is house-trained and toilet-trained. First to collect!’
But Teresa’s act of rage didn’t go quite as she’d planned.
Hoping for some sympathetic reactions from people who understood the struggle of a deeply aggravating husband, Teresa was instead flooded with offers to take Rob off her hands.
That is what she asked for, to be fair.
Within hours, the post had more than 300 reactions, and plenty of comments from single women who said they’d be happy to take Rob in.
Rob responded too, and didn’t seem too bothered by the slam, commenting ‘Brilliant… Do I get my tea cooked too?’
Sadly, no one has come to the house to pick up Rob and take him to his new home, but this may be down to the lack of a 30 day return policy.
‘My husband thought it was funny and still does,’ Teresa said. ‘He’s got a great sense of humour, thankfully.
‘It gave a lot of people something to laugh at and it brightened up their day. I’m happy that our silly sense of humour made others laugh.’
Oh, and don’t worry – the annoying video and the Facebook post haven’t put a real dent in the couple’s relationship.
They’re still happily married, and recently celebrated their fourth anniversary with a romantic dinner.
Teresa should probably keep checking her local Facebook groups, mind you, as Rob says she’s got a few annoying habits of her own.
Women feel the most body confident when they reach 65
‘She’s always telling me to do the washing up, cut the grass… she even cut up my football boots so that I wouldn’t play football,’ says Rob.
‘It was because I’d broken my leg twice though and I’m not supposed to run, so it was from a good place, really.’
Rob’s other irritating habits include leaving dirty socks around the house. Sort it out, Rob.
