While somebody else won’t take direction
I, meanwhile, become infuriated that my comments go in my partner’s ear and out the other. He thinks it’s rude that I’m making suggestions while I think it’s rude that he isn’t taking them. I’ll say, “You should use the canola oil instead of the olive oil for cooking—it burns away slower” and then I’ll just watch the olive oil go into the pan. Now it’s really on.
