Do you know why men are so different than women?
The question has been asked over & over without any definitive answer. Scientists point to this or that chromosome, some guy said they were from Mars and women were from Venus, blah, blah, blah.
I don't know why but they ARE different. Without question.
When S & I have a
Unless I'm wrong, but of course that NEVER happens so...
I can't just "get over it" as he advises me to do. I have to think about it, analyze it, and try to fix it. My thoughts are that if we don't resolve whatever it is then it's inevitable that we will discuss it at a later date.
He thinks if we are using inside voices again then the issue is resolved.
For example we were at McD's this weekend in the drive-thru and the lady at the window asked us to pull up to the white line to wait since our food wasn't quite ready. Now it's important to know that the "white line" is in fact a "white section" about a foot long.
S pulled up to the first part of the white line. A few seconds later the car behind us beeps the horn and indicates for him to move up. Instead he just sits there insisting that the lady said "white line" and he's at the "white line".
I reason that the he can stay on the "white line" and still move up enough to where she can get out. About that time the food comes out and we are on our way, but the discussion continues.
"Why couldn't you just move up?"
"I was told to go to the white line; I was on the white line."
"Yes, but you could have moved up 3 inches so that lady could get out and still have been on the white line."
This went on the rest of the way home until we went in and ate a pretty quiet lunch with the teen. Me still fuming over the discussion and him ignoring my fuming. I'm not ashamed to say that I was still a little perturbed an hour later when he tried to kiss me goodbye, although I did eventually get over it.
I realize this is a dumb thing to discuss but it just shows how differently we think.
And don't get me started on "circus". Let me just state for the record that saying "Do you wanna do it?" does nothing to get me hot & bothered.
