- Wedding: May 2016
So last night, my SO and I were having a bit of a tiff over something. I don’t want to go into details here, but it had to do with money. I’m going to say that we were arguing over him buying a coffee maker, just for the sake of a scenario. We were both in a VERY shitty mood, so everything here below was full of snark. Keep the attitude in mind as you’re reading.
Me: So, you got a coffee maker today, huh? How much was it?<br />Him, defensively: Uh, $50, I think….
Me, also defensively: I’m not mad, I just wanted to know.
Him, getting more upset: I know, I know, but I know we’re short on money now, and I shouldn’t be spending it on something stupid.
Me, also getting upset: Whatever, I love you.
Him: I love you too.
Me: Are you sure? (Now, I say this all the time, and he goes “Yes, I’m sure” and I go “promise?” and he says “Swear!” It’s our little thing)
Me: I said are you sure?!
Him–looks down, shakes head: No.
BEES, I felt like the world dropped out from under me! He looked so upset and kind of disgusted and just all kinds of wrong!
Me: WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO?!
Him: I mean, no, I’m not sure. I don’t know, you keep asking me and I feel bad because I really don’t know how much it cost and…
At this point, I figured out we were talking about two different things. He thought I was asking if he was sure how much the coffee maker was. However, I was still too caught up in the idea that he had said no, he wasn’t sure that he loved me, and I totally burst into little bitch baby tears!
Once he figured out why I was crying, he started laughing hysterically and going “No, no, I’m sure I love you!”
What a mess I am.
What’s the worst miscommunication (along these lines) that you’ve ever had with your SO?
