Spousal disagreements

Why is it one can always think of a terrific comeback/argument to a disagreement with one's spouse...


But always a day later?

Re: Spousal disagreements

One should tell the other party that they are being argumentative... They can't argue with that.

It's a self-preservation thing. Could you imagine the reaction if you tried to use a terrific comeback/argument in a heated situation (edit: with your female OH)?

Would make the Japan meltdown look tame...

cause she knows you better than you know her. She's a few steps ahead when argumenting and knows what you're going to say. I have similar situation at home but in my favour.

Re: Spousal disagreements

All the better. The times I'm caught off-guard like that is when she's right. All that brilliant comebacks will do in that case is artificially prolong the argument.

If you want annoying, how about when you almost agree (enough to see her side, at least) and she don't take "yes, ok, let's drop it" for an answer, and wants to keep going until she's sure that you're so much on her side that you'd die in freezing trench warfare defending her position. Damn it, woman, just take the half-hearted "yes" for an answer and let me deal with it in my head in peace.
