I’d just like to throw this out there…
I’m a great arguer. I can argue about anything. I really like being right. Even if I know I’m not right, I will just argue with you until you give up. 🙂 I’m not professing that this is a good trait to have. I have gotten better about it as I’ve gotten older, but deep down, I really enjoy it. Kind of sick, isn’t it?
Anyway, I was thinking about things that couples “generally” argue about compared to what Brent and I argue about. I did a little research (I’m so dedicated to this blog) and here is what Google told me are the top 5 things couples argue about:
Here are what I think Brent and I argue about the most*: (in no particular order)
2. Getting water all over the sink
3. Work decisions
5. The amount of time spent talking to Mark (his friend) on the phone
Yes, I am telling the truth. That’s what we argue about the most. Let me explain…
Starbucks- Brent is an addict. It’s really out of control. We used to argue about it a lot, but then we went to an allowance system so now I can’t see on the credit card how much he spends there and I haven’t cared as much lately. I do care some though. I don’t think you should be a slave to any beverage (alcoholic or not).
Water on the sink- This drives me insane. Brent shaves and there is water everywhere. The argument comes because I have to say something about it and he has to make a smart remark back. If he would just wipe it up it would be a non-issue.
Work desicions- Who doesn’t argue about this stuff? It even made it in the top 5 for all couples.
Driving- Oh boy… I am a way better driver than Brent. I don’t understand the decisions he makes while driving. He just doesn’t think. We argue the most when he is driving.
Talking to Mark- I sware, these 2 talk as much as girls. I don’t even talk to my mom this much. They can just talk all night long. About what, you ask. Basketball. Even when it isn’t basketball season.
Every couple should argue some, I think. Otherwise you know someone is always getting their way and the other person is always giving in. That just doesn’t seem healthy to me.
*Disclaimer: Brent’s list make vary slightly from mine.
