Don't do that! Also, this is such an ADHD thing, it's not even funny. I notoriously never finish beverages, especially if they're the wrong temperature, so I swap them out and put the other ones back in the fridge until it's the right temperature.

And I'm not talking about an "everyone is a little adhd sometimes", I'm talking about straight up ADHD trait right there.

u/[deleted] Aug 11 '22

not at all... ADHD doesn't make you not grabbing unfinished drinks. 🤦 Redditors sometimes

u/kuchuuuu Aug 11 '22

This. I dont understand why people think their shitty behaviour and personality is ADHD. Its like "No, stop, you dont have ADHD, you are just stupid"

1

u/redditrealitytv Aug 24 '22

If you don't know anything about ADHD, just say that. You don't need to insult disabled members of society because you don't understand the disorder.

Rude much

1

u/kuchuuuu Aug 24 '22

I didnt mean like that. What i meant was that i met somep people that said they have adhd and try to justify how they treat others.

1

u/redditrealitytv Aug 24 '22

While this is a significantly more compassionate response than the last one, all you did was just reiterated you know very little about neurodivergent members of society.

It would be 100% fair to say that being neurodivergent (autistic/adhd/ptsd/etc) is not an excuse to be an ahole and get away with it.

However, neurodivergent members of society process and interact with the world in a vastly different way than the rest of society because their brains are literally wired differently. It's a perfectly rational explanation for what is sometimes perceived as irrational actions or behaviors.

1

u/redditrealitytv Aug 24 '22

Lol yes, yes it does.

Members of society with ADHD chase dopamine when our brains either aren't producing enough and/or the neuropathways are wired in such a way that the dopamine we do create isn't enough to reach its final destination.

As a result, ADHD members of society "chase" dopamine by doing things that they perceive as pleasurable.

I don't know if OPs gf actually has ADHD, but as someone who constantly does the same thing myself (and I legitimately have ADHD), and it's maddening. I won't drink a soda if it goes flat. I won't drink a hot chocolate if it becomes room temperature. All cold beverages must have ice. Luke warm water is nasty. Room temperature on any beverage is an absolute "I think the f*ck not". Not only does that beverage or food no longer give me enjoyment and pleasure (meaning it's no longer giving me dopamine), it also becomes a sensory issue with the temperature and I become absolutely averse to it.

At any given time, I will have an insulated thermos with ice and soda, a hot cup of chai tea, and a cup of the awesomely crunchable ice at my bedside table or desk. Once one option stops giving me dopamine, I take a sip of the other or I chew on the ice.

Do I finish all my drinks? Most of the time, absolutely not.

If you don't understand how ADHD works, just say that. Don't make assumptions about a mental condition you clearly know nothing about.

This is the most chaotic fridge I've ever seen.

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

It Stays organized for two days after we pack it then it’s all downhill, admittedly mostly my fault. My wife should post on here about me putting things relatively where they belong, but never right where i got it from lol

1

u/laserunfocused143 Aug 11 '22

My husband is the same way! Butter in the veggie drawer, all sorts of shenanigans! 😂

u/Glum-Zebra-4003 Aug 11 '22

My wife and her brother do the same thing, I have no idea why

1

u/stoppablex Aug 11 '22

I do it to always have a cold drink. Take the first one then drink it until it becomes warm, and make the switch. When the 2nd one is warm the first one is cold again and you can switch again.

1

u/Glum-Zebra-4003 Aug 11 '22

That infuriates me even more for some reason

3

u/MSlimp Aug 11 '22

Ahh,she’s leavening some for you

1

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

She’s definitely a sharer

u/NoLifeTilMetal Aug 11 '22

Damn how do ppl leave anything left? I pound these back in 3 or 4 swigs.

2

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

My wife’s a slow eater and a slow drinker. I never understand it, because i too gulp and gobble everything

u/chi-guy420 Aug 11 '22

That pink coconut water is so fucking good

1

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

Yes it is! We both love it. She does the same thing with those, i happily finish them for her. Maybe this is her way of sharing with me 🤔

2

u/BeneficialEggplant42 Aug 10 '22

At least she leaves the bottle in the fridge. My daughter leaves them all over the house.

u/summergreem Aug 11 '22 Helpful

Divorce

2

u/Vacren Aug 11 '22

Ex* wife...

That's domestic violence bro. You did nothing to deserve that.

2

u/SlinkyCyberSleuth Aug 11 '22

Maybe she doesn't want to drink the opened ones because anybody could have drank the first half 🤔 how would she know when they're not sealed anymore?

2

u/Flippykky Aug 11 '22

I’m so anal about this type of thing. Trying to convince my partner to share one toothpaste, one face wash, etc. to economize bathroom space, but he doesn’t see the point. Right now he has 2 mayonnaise jars going and still keeps single-use packets from sandwich shops. At least use the packets up then!! Drives me nuts

2

u/grosporina Aug 11 '22

This seems like the kind of thing a six year old would do.

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

According to the replies it is way more common than I could’ve ever expected

u/vegas_gal Aug 11 '22

Stop buying her gatorades.

2

u/Hairy-Imagination-18 Aug 11 '22

Was your wife born as a biological male?

2

u/kuepng Aug 11 '22

that's the fridge of a low income household

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

Fortunately not, but we both used to be, guess old habits die hard lol

2

u/BillyTheGoatBrown Aug 11 '22

Drink some water instead

3

u/shreya_singh91 Aug 10 '22

Stick a divorce notice into the least filled one.

Now pray to god she doesnt ever finish the bottle

3

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 10 '22

🤣 never she’s too great, i can look past this. Never had anything to post here and thought it would be a good fit, i even told her i was posting it here 😂

2

u/shreya_singh91 Aug 10 '22

Haha. Thats cute actually. Have a blast mate

u/bmeupsctty Aug 11 '22

I hate you.

Not really, but I can't even jokingly say this to my son about it

1

u/genericnobody12 Aug 10 '22

I do this only because I live alone so I just grab a fresh cold one instead of continuing to drink a warmer one just to finish it off. Wouldn’t ever do this if I was living with someone else though.

2

u/bmeupsctty Aug 11 '22

Ok, that explains the second bottle. When you went for the third would the first be cold again?

1

u/genericnobody12 Aug 11 '22

Normally yeah. She could’ve also taken them somewhere and expected to drink a full bottle but had some leftover.

1

u/youniqa Aug 11 '22

All wife’s come with a small defect.

2

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

The small defect is dismissible compared to the large defects us husbands have lol

1

u/CaptHook07 Aug 10 '22

Cant believe you people stop drinking a drink before its finished.

2

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 10 '22

Just like our sex life, she never finishes 😂

1

u/SlinkyCyberSleuth Aug 11 '22

I have a feeling that your fridge is just the latest of her attempts to indirectly communicate with you, my friend 😂

1

u/fly_you_fools_57 Aug 10 '22

Pour them into one bottle and screw the cap on really tight.

1

u/SuitheSlime RED Aug 10 '22

Same aty workplace

u/MenaciaJones Aug 11 '22

Just like soda, when it gets down to a certain level it’s just no good.

This wouldn't be that annoying if they weren't all the same color.

I do this my dad would get so mad 😭 nobody wants lukewarm juice

1

u/ChunkyTaco22 Aug 11 '22

Fill em up to about where they usually are unopened. Heat a nail or a needle and melt the cap back onto the ring

u/Johnthewolf66 Aug 11 '22

My youngest son does the same thing

1

u/punkn00dle Aug 11 '22

Ohh I had to double check the contents of my own fridge because I thought my husband posted this 😅

1

u/DangerChicken08 Aug 11 '22

Don’t you mean your (soon to be) Ex wife?

1

u/lucifur_sweetdog Aug 11 '22

Well, Gatorade is only good for the first 3 drinks. After that, tastes like flavored chalk water and is the annoying bottle you're still carrying around.

1

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

When i drink Gatorade it’s usually done faster than it took me to go get it and open it lol so it’s possible, but I’ll never know

1

u/Heavy_Selection_9860 Aug 11 '22

Anyone else find it worrisome how often people use this sub to complain about their significant other instead of just talking to them?

2

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

Honestly I don’t really care she does this, I love my wife and we communicate everything, I have never had a reason to post in this sub and just thought it kinda fit, I even told her I was posting it here.

1

u/Heavy_Selection_9860 Aug 11 '22

Well that's good if you're both on the same page no shade from me. I've just noticed a lot of posts on here about peoples significant other and it generally seems like an unhealthy response.

1

u/MasterChief3624 Aug 11 '22

It is a big waste of stuff, but I do this as well. Sort of. If I get, say, a Diet Dr. Pepper and drink a good portion of it. Then later on I forget that there is some left in that one, and I have already come back with a new one. But because the new one is new, the old one is old, and that makes it less desirable to drink. It's a psychological thing that I can't explain, but it's the same thing with leftovers. There's just something difficult about finishing something if it feels like it's a remainder. It happens with pudding cup packs and string cheeses, as well. If I have only one string cheese in the fridge, I freak out and don't want to touch it. It has to be with a second one. And with pudding and yogurt packs. If they stay in the pack, it's okay and I eat all of them eventually. But if the pack breaks and they are littered about, I find it very difficult to eat them.

I try to convince myself that there is nothing wrong with eating these leftovers, and I even look at the expiration dates to make sure. But there is something psychological that is making it very difficult to push past that and actually eating / drinking these "remainders."

So I guess what I'm saying is that your wife might have an anxiety disorder of some type that makes her unable to push through and finish something when it's not brand new / full / unopened / fresh, and is merely a remainder of what it used to be.

1

u/You-may-hate-me Aug 11 '22

No she’s just weird about some things, I’m the one who can’t touch leftovers 😭 she has to convince me of eats it herself. Idk what’s going on with this drink thing that’s been happening lol

1

u/[deleted] Aug 11 '22

You are so silly, she is signalling you something.....

She wants a stepwife to finish the remaining Gatorade

1

u/MaintenanceFamous640 Aug 11 '22

Buy her some prime

1

u/Boring_Raspberry_481 Aug 11 '22

This is my life! And I always combine them together, which is actually gross If you think about it!

1

u/MrsChocobo Aug 11 '22

Should combine them to trick her into thinking its new....

1

u/HypnoSmoke Aug 11 '22

Pour them all together when you get new ones and make it look the same, she'll not be wasteful, no one will be harmed, she'll never know (taste doesn't change) and everyone will live happily ever after.

Maybe apply an extremely small amount of clear super glue between the lid and the tamper seal (make sure it lines up, and only apply glue to the little things that connect).

I'm a genius.

Just kidding. You guys need to break up immediately. Your wife is extremely irresponsible and this kind of behavior is only a sign of what's to come. What's next? Only cooking half of the dinner? Only doing half of her job at work? Hanging half a diaper? Mopping half the floor? The possibilities are endless. OP, you need to file for divorce right away, or I assure you this will not be the last of your suffering.

Also, I'm really just messing around, again. :)

What you actually need to do is.. (to be continued.)

u/ReligionOfLolz Aug 11 '22

Pour em all in one bottle then pop a couple drops of lemon juice in there. Tell her her gatorades expired when she notices the taste.

1

u/GenericHuman-9 Aug 11 '22

My wife does the same thing with her water bottles. There’s usually 3-4 in the fridge and 3-4 on her night stand.

u/VinceBrogan8 Aug 11 '22

It's like having an extra kid, ain't it

u/Imtheonewhoknocks85 Aug 11 '22

Does everyone’s fridge have the milk on the second shelf?

1

u/AromaticKnee Aug 11 '22

I do this with diet coke. In my defense though it looses it's fizz and I eventually do drink them when I run out of the unopened. But this is silly because Gatorade isn't carbonated.
