Spouses that is.

I get home from a long day at work. I forgot to wear my special computer glasses, so I had a wicked headache forming.

I have to make dinner though, cuz she's reading a book and 'watching' tv.

Then she gives me hell for giving her a slightly smaller portion size (though she bitches she needs to lose weight).

I then proclaim "we are not watching Shrek Christmas", so she hides the remote.

So I'm in the other room, pounding down the Kolsch, wondering why my wife has to pick on me when she knows I'm already not in a sweet mood. Her day was just peachy, so she's got to f*#$ with me??

It's what they do. It's their job. If you want all peaches and cream, get a boy friend. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Fingers, that's just wrong! I'd say more, but I don't want to start a big debate on this thread, or get myself an a$$ chewing from a mod.

Tell me about it.

I come home from work the other day and reach out to give Kellie a kiss and she practically screeches "I DONT WANT ANYBODY TOUCHING ME!"

Yup. Its that way sometimes.

Doesn't sound like you've been married any length of time yet...wait til menopause...

Next time the portion size is off just offer her the largest and tell her you're not that hungry anyway...it's the offering that counts...she'll most likely turn it down anyway (that's part of their "I'm testing you" procedures).

Same with Shrek...tell her it's OK if she watches it, but you're more interested in watching something else that night...a comedy, but not a cartoon/animation, etc.
