View Full Version : what to argue tonight???
I am writing this to ask what STOOPID things to argue with your partner/hubby over??? And i mean the things that you look back and the arguement and keel over laughing at the stupidity of it all!!!!
I'll start ... yesterday myself and my partner had an arguement over a loaf of bread. I wanted him to go buy one, he wanted to go to the shops .... makes sense buy one AT the shops, but I needed brekky AT THAT MOMENT and more than a little upset at the thought of having to wait the half hour to get to the shops.
TOTAL MELT DOWN on his part, total hyperventilation on mine when he walked out to work without a single utterance. Over a loaf of bread that was devoured within an hour of being bought.
lol lol eleanor, when dh and i fight, it is usually started over the most silliest, insignificant things, and before you know its on for young and old!!! well slight exagerration, but you get the picture;) besides, your pregnant!! surely he should understand that there is no way a pregnant woman can wait for her b/fast, you dont just want it, you NEED it!!! :)
I need my meals on time bad enough without being pregnant! If too much time passes I get really weak and light headed and can't cope with anything. And once that happens I don't feel up to eating anyway!
I know exactly what you mean. I then vomit and then I can't eat anything for a few hours.
Men huh, wish they could be pregnant for a while! :rolleyes:
Most of our worst fights have been over food. You'd think after 15 years DH would KNOW how important meals are to me and how cranky I can get. We had a major blow out when making pizza once - there wasn't enough cheese and I got very snitty over it. I stormed out and walked for half an hour till I got over being mad and just felt stupid. :o
I understand! LOL ;)
Yesterday my DH and I were arguing over when to put the xmas tree up! :rolleyes: Really silly argument. He was saying in his family they put it up 12 days before xmas and I was saying we put ours up just after the xmas pageant. Who cares what our families did, we are a family! So after realizing how silly it was we compromised.
The things we argue over. I only hope as I get older a miracle happens and Become the rashonal (Spelling?), patient, mature person I'm sure is in there somewhere. LOL :D
Late into my last pregnancy DH and I fought over Chocolate - yep silly I know.
Violet Crumbles was the only food that I could eat and enjoy without suffering from heartburn. Well one day DH ran out of his fav choc and took my violet crumbles. I went balistic so he threw them at my feet and stormed into another room. Well I yelled that he had to clean them up (as they went everywhere in the lounge room) and I stormed off in car to friends place (mind you this was at midnight). Got home 2hrs later and was cleaned up the best a DH can do.
I don't care for violet crumbles now but he still brings it up. I can laugh about it now but I couldn't at the time!
So what other than food do you fight about??
We constantly have disagreements over the direction I am to drive the car (ie. back seat driving at the worst) or when he is drunk and I am driving he gets really narky bout the gaps in traffic - that aren't really gaps unless you are two shades to the wind - and the fact that i don't get into them in order to rush home for the sex he AIN'T going to get!!!!!
Too many to mention LOL
Mainly our arguments are about DH not helping at all with the house and the kids. It's a real issue here and I've tried EVERYTHING but he always says I winge and we end up fighting day in day out.
I know it's not good for the kids!
We used to argue about how I gave directions in the car, until I aparently got good at it, through 8 years of tuition from him. :rolleyes:
What would I do without him???
We would go for a nice leisurely Sunday drive and always end up arguing about where to go etc. Used to drive me crazy. Thank goodness for all his tuition otherwise I don't know what I'd do. LOL :rolleyes:
I guess we are all SOO lucky that our other halves are such great teachers.
As for me i went to university for 6 years to become a teacher and I still need him to define the entire English dictionary for me ..... !!!
Oh gosh,we fight about sooo many little things,it's not funny.If I had a dollar for every little fight,I'd be a very rich woman!! :D
when i was pregnant we had a fight over the fact that DH hadnt hung his towel up properly! I got cranky because it wasnt straight and he told me i was being irrational! (not a good thing to tell a preg woman) He still calls me a 'towel nazi'now and then :)
We argue about very insignificant things all the time. One of our great triggers is how to get somewhere in the car - he always insists that his way is faster and I, of course, am always right too.......when we were due to have dd2 we had to work out the best way to get to the hospital, and then had to agree on the route we would take (with variations for the time of day) and "lock it in" because I didn't want to be arguing with him on the way to the hospital in labour!! :o Luckily I ended up being induced so we drove in on one of our pre-planned routes with no hurry and no argument! :p
lol Theresa, yes going somewhere in the car together usually end up in an argument with us too, only if it is somewhere that we havnt been before, or I have been there before, but he insists he knows what he is doing and to trust him, of course we inevitably end up hopelessly lost and really late!! i get crankier, as does he and by the time we arrive where we are going we usually arent speaking to each other!! :) (luckily it never lasts long lol)
don't you ever argue because you are being a vile human being. I remember being mad as hell about the sound of my DH eating an orange. Every sound was driving me mad because I was tired and narky...
My Scott has the amazing ability to absolutely **** me up a tree!!!! Last night at 11pm I had to get out of bed and get on the computer to find 'actual' definitions of 'cultural sensitivity,' apparently having studied it at university wasnt good enough ( well excuse me for thinking that an education got you somewhere :p ).
Often we will have 'misunderstandings' about definitions, and then he will feel the need to email me from work days afterwards 'proving' his point from an internet dictionary - he is getting a dictionary for christmas to save the comupting time, or maybe it should be a lump of coal :D ????
Im also really funny with my food, even more so when I was preggas, I refuse to share anything that is on my plate and boy, you better not touch a single roasted potatoe or I am apt to cut your fingers off without a moments hesitation - after two damned years that man still doesnt get it! Really his does understand but just likes to tick me off. Yesterday at 5am in the morning while getting bubba something to eat he asks me in a rather rude tone, ' and why have you left your clothes on the floor in the bathroom???' Well there is no need to type my response as one does not use such language in civilized conversation :D
LOL I too have had to listen to HIS definition of culturalism, diversity and PEDAGOGY which as I recall he said wasn't a real word whilst I was studying it at uni, but then all of a sudden when i complete the studies and have a piece of paper to prove it HE SUDDENLY KNOWS MORE!!!! LOL
My pet hate is the "love you" I get. Sounds stupid I know but let me explain. nathan works in hospitality so to say "I love you" is too sissy for him, instead I used to get Ditto which was fine. Now I get "You suck" ........ hmm THANKS babe!!
My pet hate is when dh goes out. To explain fully, he has a really good friend, who has also become a really good friend of mine, who he visits at least 5 nights out of 7. My problem is that he usually leaves around 7 and doesn't get home til ooohhh, midnight if I'm lucky.
See, I'd forgotten how much this peeved me, because he was finishing work around 2, so I'd get to see him for a few hours before he went out. Now work hours have changed, and he finishes at 7 - comes home and crashes for an hour, and then goes out and I don't see him til the next morning. He doesn't get up until around 11 because he's coming home around 3.
It's driving me nuts! I just want to spend some more time with my husband. I don't care if we're in the same room, doing the same thing or at different ends of the house - just knowing he's around is enough for me.
Please don't get me wrong, I don't mind him going out - but when its every single night....it gets a little tiring.
So that's the stupid little thing we fight about most often. It got to me tonight, because I thought he was going to stay home, but nooooo.....
Sorry guys - he started work at 10 today - finished at 8, I got to see him for half an hour before he headed out. :( I just miss the big lug!
My partner and I don't have arguments, we have 'discussions'.. ok, well he discusses and I do the silent thing until I get my way... or get tired and go to bed.
All our arguements start over the most insignificant things. Although I find if either DP or myself are having trouble talking to each other about something more major an arguement started over something minor usually leads to the bigger thing being brought up and then we can sit down like grown ups and talk about it!!
I would love to be able to sit and have a grown up talk about things, but it's not to be.
Believe me eleanor, the behaving like grown ups usually comes after a good while of behaving like spoilt brats!! :eek: :D
schmell ...... I love your avatar ..... was that in the hospital??
Yep DD2 and dad about an hour after she was born. She was born outside visiting hours so we went and sat in the foyer with about 10 of my family and friends and got snap happy. I have a black and white print of that photo over DD2's changetable, I love it.
