I swear, sometimes FI & I can get upset with each other over the most idiotic, unimportant things. We’ve been together 6 years and have a mostly happy relationship, although times like this have me shaking my head!
I was telling FI earlier about a game I used to play as a little girl on Sega and how much I loved it. Very sweetly, he downloaded one of those ’emulator’ things for the computer, and managed to find and download the game for me. By the time it finished downloading, it was about midnight.
So he sets it up for me to play and I say “Nah, it’s late, thank you, I’ll absolutely play tomorrow!” because the computer is in our bedroom and I don’t want to keep him up as he works early. WELL! He got super sulky about it, said “Fine, forget this, I’m done for tonight” and got into bed. I said “Shall I switch off the computer?” His grumbly response: “Might as well. What a waste of time that was.”
I was a bit like, wtf? at his attitude, so I sort of snapped and asked what his problem was, we went back and forth for about 10 minutes (“I was trying to do something nice for you and you don’t even want to use it!” vs “It’s midnight! I’ll play it tomorrow, stop being a manchild!”)
Anyway I left the room in a huff, and now hes asleep so I suppose the resolution will wait until morning. But LOL..all this over a Sonic game!? Ridic.
Anybody else get into stupid fights that don’t matter?

Yes, definitely! Especially because we both seem to get defensive quickly. At least now I know we’re not the only ones lol As long as no one takes it too far & everyone is happy again eventually then it’s all good.

I can never remember them because they’re so dumb but we usually bicker when I’m hangry (hungry & angry lol)

We have those all the time and they’re so stupid. We continuously argue about the friggin stand fan in the bedroom being on at night (I have to sleep with a fan on at night) and he refused to sleep with another blanket.
There are other petty arguements but they’re too dumb to remember lol

I got irritated at FH over a spoon once. My emotions were haywire because I was stressed out and FH was making dinner. He had a regular spoon that he was stirring soup with and when he went to eat he got another spoon out of the drawer, which for some reason set me off. I told him that he should have just used the spoon he cooked with because now he was just making more dirty dishes. Yes, it was ridiculous, because FH almost always does the dishes anyway.
Then there was the argument over what band had done a particular song… that didn’t last long, but it was still stupid.

We recently got into an argument about how to handle a person who’s having a seizure. I used to volunteer for an organization working with handicapped people and I dealt with quite a few seizures in everyone from kids to older adults (even our dog has seizures). My DH, who never even witnessed a seizure until a few years ago, swore that something should be placed in the mouth to prevent tongue injury or swallowing. I was adament about not doing that and the dangers such an action could present. But, holy cow, he could not let go of it! My daughter reminded me of this argument today and it cracked us up.

J scrambled eggs in my NON-STICK, EXPENSIVE SKILLET with a FORK. “Uhhh, that’s how I always make scrambled eggs at home, with a fork.” WELL YOU DON’T HAVE NON-STICK PANS, FUCKTARD!
Haha, I’m a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my kitchen stuff. Like I baby my KitchenAide mixer, and color cordinate my spatulas. 🙂
This is what my pan looks like now. Ugh, I get upset every time I use it. Small thing, but annoying to me.

All the time!! Seriously, all the time.
@seabunny: hilarious! It’s best not to even talk when we’re hungry. Once we got off a plane and I had made the apparently offensive mistake of not packing any snacks for the trip and he lost his mind and we screamed at each other on the streets of Hong Kong. That was deeelightful!

We have 3 small fish tanks with plants, and creatures, and we have had so much fishtank related drama it’s ridiculous. The worst was a battle we had over whether or not driftwood in one of the tanks would have moss tied to it. He wanted the driftwood bare, I really wanted it to have moss, because our shrimp would love it. Tears were shed, words were exchanged. We laugh now and refer to it as “the moss argument”.

@Paiger8: lmao “fucktard”. Not the first time I’ve heard / read the word, but it’s the first time it has every made me laugh SO HARD. Love it.

When we just moved in together, like literally the day after we moved in together, he was unpacking our books into our bookshelf. I said I like it when they are from tall to short and equally far from the edge. I really didn’t think it would be an issue cause he is a perfectionist in all other aspects. But then this huge argument ensued just about that.
We always fight about silly small things, which I guess is better than fighting constantly about big things. Then we just look at each other at one point and start laughing about our silliness! 🙂

@Paiger8: HATE THIS. when we moved in together i bought all new pans and made a point of repeatedly telling him ‘no sharp metal utensils in the non-stick pans’. he didn’t believe me (causr this is obviously something people lie about) and i ended up buying new pans.. again.. about a month later!

We got into an argument the other day about a keyboard (the musical instrument kind). It was truly ridiculous. He had a keyboard that his sister gave him because she never used or wanted it and he is the musician (they were like 10, so a seriously long time ago). I actually play the keyboard, so he let me use it when mine broke back when we were dating, and eventually I bought myself a nice new one.
So the other day he is like “Hey, my sister wants her keyboard back, where did we ever put that?” Umm I have no idea DH, it is an 18 year old crappy keyboard! And he got all mad about how I never take care of my things and I probably got rid of it and whatever. And I was like why does your sister want it anyways…trick question, I already know why! For her ONE YEAR OLD to play with. Well, she’s going to have to get over it, either it broke or you didn’t bring it with us when we moved! Her kid is already in swim lessons and gymnastics and art lessons and a reading group, and now she wants him in a music group too, and I’ll be damned if we’re going to get in an argument about a stupid keyboard because everyone thinks that child needs every toy and activity in the freaking world! Except of course by then we were already arguing…it was pretty dumb. Then he was acting like I was purposely not telling him just so our nephew can’t have it, and I got mad he was accusing me of lying…god it was a mess. We went to sleep mad and luckily DH made the smart decision to not ask me abot the keyboard again.
….and now we sound like crazy people. But every couple has their moments, right? lol

Salsa – we got into a spat about kinds of salsa we like at the grocery store. Now when we are in that aisle he’ll say, “no salsa arguments tonight” and we just shake our heads, lol.
