    Default How long is your partners 5mins?

    Vent alert!!

    Seriously my hubby has no time management skills what so ever.

    If he says in 5mins it could be anywhere from 5mins to infinity away.

    Drives me Crazy!!!

    I'm the one in our house with the 5 minutes issue. It could mean anything to me. I get easily distracted. Drives DH nuts.

    Ex partner's 5 mins? Between 4:59 and 5:01. Predictable, on time and boring
