Default You Plug it You Plunge It

So my wife told me today that I'm a jerk and an asshole because she plugged up the toilet and I told her she had to plunge it. I personally grew up in a house that had a rule that if you plug it you plunge it so I have applied that rule in our home. Anyone have an opinion on the matter? I'm try to prove that I'm right on this one so does anyone agree or disagree?

I'm of the belief that if you break it you fix it. Whoever plugs up the crapper gets to plunge it. Did she really think that you would clear the clog for her?

Like the old Meatloaf song: "I'll do anything for love (but I won't do that)"

I believe if you break it you fix it. Watching coworkers try to fix some things on occasion ends up in it being unfixable and requiring replacement entirely. With that said it's kind of difficult to break a toilet.

Usually when toilet clogs arise the person who did it tries to fix it because it's overflowing onto the floor. That is undesired operation and best stopped ASAP.

I weigh, and eat, twice as much as my wife. I have never clogged the ****ter. She seems to poop stones. I do all of the other crappy jobs around the house, so I plunge it.

They only record an album every 15 years. They're probably due for another one in 2020 or so. I think it'll be called "Return of the Son of Bat Out of Hell"

If you are looking for approval to be a dick, you aren't going to get it from me.
Plumbing is usually a guys job. so just get the plunger and get it over with.
If she doesn't appreciate your efforts at plumbing and whatever else you do, that's something you should try to work out with her.
Do you and this gal "got it goin' on" or not?
Does she support your brewing efforts and other things you are into?
If you really treasure her companionship, friendship and love, then you shouldn't
worry about doing a needed household task.
