Things NOT worth fighting about


I had a really stupid argument with my hubby yesterday - I had bought the "wrong size of bun", then I got defensive and we had the most ridiculous 15 minute argument about the merits of a dinner roll versus a Kaiser roll.

I later had to laugh, thinking "there's 15 minutes of my life I'll never get back!"  We of course apologized and it's dealt with, but I'm wondering:  what's the stupidest topic you've ever squabbled about with your man (or family member, BFF)?

One I had with my brother

There is another heinous discussion I still haven't lived down (my family - those comedians - bring it up occasionally), involving my brother.

My bro and I are debaters. In fact, the rest of the family has taken to leaving the room when we get into some topic or another The last time he tried to bait me I diffused and walked away. I think he was rather hurt!

The topic was "how accurate is carbon dating". Yes, really. But in our defense, we were a little sauced at the time, and the rest of the family could easily have left the room but chose to stay instead.

Look out for the $hit!

To date, this is probably our dumbest argument. We were going on a nice stroll downtown, walking as we usually do. Him with his head up, looking around, me looking at the ground to make sure I don't step in anything disgusting. It's what we always do. I noticed he was about to step on the hugest terd and so I blurted out, "Look out for the $hit!!" I think I scared him a little because he literally jumped to avoid it and then he was upset with me about it. I thought it was hilarious but then I got mad that he was mad. We squabbled about that for several hours before we realized we were being losers.

We fight about laundry. I think he doesn't know what he's doing and he thinks he was doing laundry just fine before he met me so I'm just nit-picking.

There have been some casualties with my wardrobe as a result of him doing laundry on the sly. I guess I should consider myself lucky he wants to pitch in.

Pickles and Mustard

My hubby and I were dating at the time. I was life guarding and it was a rainy day, so he had the day off of his construction job. I was up really early and didn't have time to make myself a lunch, so asked him if he would being me one. I'm a picky eater (a lot less since we've been together, and you'll see why), but figured he should know me well enough by now to know what I like to eat. He came with a sandwich made the way he would eat it, with Pickles (yum-yums) and mustard and some other gross things that I really don't like. I got really ticked, he got mad at me because I shouldn't have complained and should have just been grateful that he made and brought me a lunch. We argued for a long time, he stormed off and I was bawling for hours. I finally called my sister to ask her who was in the right, and as good sisters do, she proceeded to tell me how stupid I had been and that I needed to apologize to him. I apologized, which is always the hardest thing to do! We argue well, but I'd say that was the worst and most ridiculous one thus far :)

His mess

My boyfriend and I usually fight about his stuff lying around everywhere. He would like a corner of the room just to be messy. He likes it like that, he says that it makes the room more lively. I think it is disgusting!

I don't think we will ever manage that arguments though. Unless he gets one room where he can be as messy as he likes and that I can close the door!

Our dumbest one yet is the time we started fighting about farting. I think its okay to fart in front of your spouse, HE does NOT agree. He thinks that his attraction to me will lessen if I let a stinker go. I say how about we test that theory and see what happens lol. We actually kept on arguing about it for a good half hour or more until we realized what we were arguing about and started laughing lol

So just to get him paranoid I told him that he farts in his sleep..hehehehe
