Boyfriend or Best Friend and I had a small argument on Sunday. We’re fine now and the argument didn’t last very long. We immediately made up afterwards. It was a very petty, stupid argument but oh well, at least we stopped and realized that we were fighting over something stupid.
Basically, the argument was about deciding what to cook for dinner. I am a very picky eater and Boyfriend or Best Friend has been trying to get me to try new things. Most of the time, I let him talk me into trying new stuff.
But every once in a while, I just want to eat something that I KNOW I will like! Hence the argument.
I wanted to cook my “famous” spaghetti. (I call it famous because it’s one of the best things that I can cook and I don’t cook very well or very often lol).
Boyfriend or Best Friend decided that we should tweak my recipe a little bit. Instead of using ground beef, we should use sausage.
I was very resistant to this idea for two reasons. Firstly, I just don’t think sausage instead of ground beef for spaghetti sounds appealing at all. Secondly, I really was NOT in the mood to try something new. I just wanted something safe and something that I knew I would like.
But Boyfriend or Best Friend was hell bent on getting sausage instead of ground beef. We had to go to the grocery store to get the ingredients.
And I was hell bent on buying ground beef. We were at a stalemate. I was getting frustrated and a little bit angry.
Also, Boyfriend or Best Friend was temporarily broke. So I finally said, “Well you know what, since I’m gonna be paying for this meal, buying the ingredients and since we’re gonna be using my pots and dishes in my apartment to cook it, I am buying ground beef ’cause it’s my dishes and I’m the one who’s paying for it!”
As soon as I said that, I immediately realized that I had went too far.
Boyfriend or Best Friend got quiet, raised his eyebrow and said “You really want to go there?”
I was so ashamed. I said “No, I don’t. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that. I can’t believe I said that.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend, thank goodness, immediately forgave me. He said, “It’s okay. And honey, we can use ground beef if you really don’t want sausage.”
Sigh. I am so lucky to have him. I still cringe when I think about what I said. :/
So what about you ladies? Have you ever said anything like that just to win an argument? Please tell me your stories and make me feel better about being an awful girlfriend 🙁
