When you first move in with a significant other, it's an exciting time that can also be super awkward. You're cohabiting with someone you care about but don't know extremely well yet. You're poised to discover the quirks and eccentricities they conceal from the outside world. Whether someone keeps the pantry obsessively organized or sings opera while showering, you'll find out. And some habits are more endearing than others, as one Redditor learned the hard way recently.

Throwaway, because reasons.
TL;DR: Found my gym socks in the garbage covered in poop. Asked girlfriend about it. She started yelling at me and crying and left.
I don't even know where to start with this. I'm dumbfounded. She just stormed out the house and I'm sitting on the bed asking myself A LOT of questions.
I live a pretty normal life, and I thought so did my girlfriend. We've been together for a few months and after things got serious, we moved in together. We started sharing a lot of the household responsibilities, but the one thing she was adamant on doing was the laundry. She would come home and find me in the bedroom getting the laundry together and would quickly ask me to go do something else. I'd come back to finish the laundry and she would have already started it. I always thought it was sweet and never her job to do it alone, but hey, if it makes her happy to do it all the time, I wouldn't stop her.
