We got into an argument over whether or not cedar shake roofs are a safety liability, and whether a forest fire could catch his parent’s house on fire (because of their cedar shake roof). I guess cedar shakes are a total hot button with him – I had no way of knowing. I’d spent 7 seasons working forest fires, and learning about defensible spaces and what you can do to minimize your risk, and how far forest fires can send spot fires.
Coincidentally, when his grandpa offered us his home to purchase, I flat out turned him down due to location and his cedar shake roof. There’s no way I’m living at the edge of a forest that is half dead from pine beetle-killed trees in a wood sided house with cedar shake roofing.

We had an argument about taco seasoning because I like to get the one with less sodium and we have been using the same exact one for the 3 years we’ve together. All of a sudden one night he’s telling me he usually adds salt because it tastes different. I called BS and told him you NEVER said anything before of all the meals we’ve cooked but all of a sudden the less sodium one doesn’t taste as good? He still SWEARS that he’s been adding more salt this whole time. 🤔

I have an aunt who pronounces pill-oh (pillow) as pEll-ow 😬

When we had been living together for almost a year (aka he should know my basic eating habits) I sent him to the grocery store alone with a list and for many years i’ve been obsessed with the baked lays sour cream and cheddar. On the list I wrote “baked sour cream” thinking that would let him understand what I wanted. He texted me after so long as the grocery store and said “I don’t think this store has baked sour cream” thinking I wanted LITERAL baked sour cream… like wtf is that. Then he was mad I didn’t specify the chips. 😂
We also have lots of arguments over the fact that I have problems with my left and rights… I know my left and rights, I just am not good at saying the right one when navigating in the car. Also, I have a wonderful sense of direction but he never trusts I know where to go even though he could go around a dang block and not know what state he is in.
