Poll: Reasonable or Not?

I’m very frus­trat­ed. I keep pick­ing things up off the floor. As much as I love him, sam­bear is con­stant­ly toss­ing things to the floor. Any­where that he spends much time—his desk, his side of the bed, etc.—ends up being a total mess in short order. He sim­ply rolls his desk chair right over things with­out notic­ing them.

He does­n’t seem to “get” how much this both­ers me. I tru­ly believe that there should­n’t be ANYTHING on the floor. There’s car­pet. If we had hard­wood floors, there would be a few throw rugs. There’s fur­ni­ture. Shoes are okay, although I think they should be put away if they aren’t on your feet. Pets are okay. Babies can be placed on the floor if it’s clean enough and they’re super­vised close­ly, although I would­n’t let them crawl around in here (the office). In any case, I pre­fer to put a quilt down on the floor and place babies on that, then ring them ’round with pil­lows, soft fur­ni­ture, etc.

But trash, read­ing mate­r­i­al, CDs, cords, mail, dirty dish­es, hard­ware, ID cards, and files most cer­tain­ly do NOT go on the floor.

Am I being unreasonable?

BTW — if you think I’m being unrea­son­able, what do you think IS reasonable?
