Couple Tasks That Always Start A Fight
My boyfriend and I have this running joke in which he asks if I want to cook something together and I respond, “Sure. Getting in a fight sounds nice.” We really cannot make a meal together with getting into an argument. We start out so excited at the idea of finding and creating some delicious recipe, but by the time we sit down to eat it, we do so silently and angrily. Somebody in the kitchen was too bossy. Both people believe it was the other person. One individual pushed for this type of pasta when the other insisted this other type doesn’t get as mushy. We each feel that the other is taking up too much counter space. I don’t know why we get like this. Does every couple get like this? When other couples talk about making dinner together, it’s sounds fun and sexy. Not for us! But I suppose there are just some tasks that always spark a relationship fight.
By the time you’ve assembled that rocking chair, you’re ready to throw it over the balcony and smash it. Nobody can agree on which L-shaped plastic thing corresponds with Part A in the instructions and somebody keeps misplacing the screwdriver. You may wind up with a constructed chair but you hate that chair.
