@StuporDuck:  yeah, that wouldn’t fly in my house either. I’d kick him in the balls and see how much he’d be able to do.

Fiance and I “fight” over little things all the time. It’s usually just bickering and me trying to explain to him why he’s wrong and he just shuts down and won’t even consider that I’m right and that’s what’s really getting me annoyed. It’s usually about who sings that song or something along those lines.

It’s weird how be both manage to get out point across in a relatively mature manner when it’s about bigger things, but those little pointless ones make us behave like children 😀

We have argued about everything under the sun.

some stupid ones:

If he goes upstairs to get something to drink, i used to ask him to bring me some too. If he got food, i’d ask for a small bite. Would send him over the edge.

Music selections

what shows to watch

Which roads to take when going somewhere

We tend to argue about the most unimportant stuff. Like he’ll say something that he doesn’t really mean and I call him on it and rather than say he was wrong he’ll actually stick with it. And I’ve learned to shut down the hypothetical thing because it can get really stupidly bad fast.

I think our stupidest fight was over moss. We were hiking. He claimed that moss was a layer only one cell thick. I said that was ridiculous becaue you wouldn’t even be able to see something one cell thick. Guess who was right?

@MIBEETOWED:  My fiance totally does this. I’ll ask him if he wants anything. He says no. Then eats half of whatever I bring. My solution is if he eats/drinks my snack then he has to go get more. It works for us!

We once had a horrendous fight over the expiration date of a food product! I wanted him to go get another bottle of something because the ones we had were expired by about 18 months, but HE INSISTED that the product NEVER expires. I was livid that I was cooking for him, and he was refusing to get me a fresh ingredient. Turns out HE was right! Even my own mother — and the Internet — supported his statement. (For the record, I don’t care. I would have STILL purchased a new bottle if I had not been dressed in my pajamas at the time and unable to leave the stove. I plan to tell this story one day in a book I’m hoping to write. It’s actually a pretty funny story. 🙂

Flossing my teeth. His mom is a dental hygienist and he is a dental hygiene Nazi. I know I should floss more often than I do, but him nagging me about it gets on my nerves and makes me NOT want to floss just to make him mad. We got in a HUGE fight about it one night because I’d already brushed my teeth and he was “mad” that I hadn’t flossed first and didn’t want to get back out of bed to do it. It escalated to the point where he told me I must not really care about him because if I didn’t floss I would die of heart disease from all the plaque, and why would I intentionally let myself die early and leave him all alone? The fight ended with him sitting on me trying to floss my teeth for me. Ri-dic-u-lous.

@AnAppleA_Day:  I’m sorry, but the end of your story made me laugh! Imagining somebody sitting on another person trying to floss their teeth in bed is just ridiculous.

@Brielle:  You just made me remember that some of our biggest fights are about food and whether it is too old or spoiled to eat! I always go by the expiration date because I’m paranoid about that type of thing, and I don’t usually eat leftovers if they are more than 3 or 4 days old. He, on the other hand, will eat some really questionable stuff just because he hates to waste food.

Recently, we had gotten take-out food to bring to the drive-in movies, and when we got home I threw the paper bag with our food garbage into the outside trashcan. The next morning, he asked if there had been any of the macaroni salad left and I said there had been a little bit, but it had been in the bag with the garbage and I threw it out. He wanted to go outside, into the garbage, and take the macaroni salad out, because he said it was in a sealed container and it had been relatively cool that night, so he was sure it was fine. We argued about it forever, me telling him he was NOT going to go eat food out of the GARBAGE. It ended with me in tears. For the record, he didn’t go and get the stupid macaroni salad out of the trash, but if I hadn’t been there, he probably would have…

we’ve had a LOT of dumb fights.  always about trivial things.  all that come to mind now are wedding related.  the other day i asked him if he had any idea who he wanted as his groomsmen.  he said he didn’t know and asked why he needed to decide now, the wedding is a whole year away. sigh.  that was a long one, i will spare you the details.  i thought after i explained it to him he got it.

i listed a few obvious choices for him, he said yeah blah blah blah.  several of our friends are ordained.  he mentioned one of these friends to be a groomsman.  i said “i thought you wanted him to marry us.”  he said “i do, he can do it from the groomsmen line, huh huh huh.” so mad. furious. furiously, lividly angry.  everything is a joke to him.

next i show him some ideas for the wedding party attire.  my colors are grey and marigold so i am thinking about a printed bm dress and i’ve always pictured Fiance in a light grey suit.  he saw the pics and said “that looks stupid, i want to wear a black.”  i not so calmly told him i that he already got married once and didn’t have a say in it then and he wasnt about to now. i was (mostly) joking.  but this grey and marigold scheme i have in my head is not up for negotiation.  it’s my vision. IT’S MY DAY. this will be a one and only bridezilla rant.  i realize how bitchy i sound but we are getting married outside in mid May.  a black tux is not an option.

i do love him dearly and we can never be mad at each other very long.  he is my best friend.
