Nate: are you looking for what to call her griping, or what to call your failure to clean up completely after yourself, but think it should be okay with her?

What I see in this situation, is a woman who wants a clean sink, and a guy who wants her to be grateful that he didn't actually leave a deuce in it. So to speak.

I work fixing things for my paltry living. If I fix most of a machine, but the customer still can't use it, I don't expect them to be satisfied.
No, the issue with the OP's beard and his wife is just an example of the phenomenon he's asking about. Can't think what to call it, but "confirmation bias" is pretty close, I think.
