Oh, The Conversations We’ll Have!

Me, to my wife: “You got a minute? Good. Because I need you to help me with this problem I’m having.”

Her: “Okay. What is it?”

Me: “This is the second stupid thing I’ve bought this month, and you have to stop me. From now on, tell me that I can’t buy stupid things without consulting you first.”

Her: “Wait. What did you buy?”

Me: “There’s no sense discussing that now – it’s on it’s way, it’s done, it’s over. You’ll see come Wednesday.”

Her: “No, I sort of feel I should know what you – ”

Me: “Don’t get sidetracked. The point is, from now on, I check with you. Right? Good. You’re with me. Now, it should be here Wednesday, so I’ll probably install it then.”

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Sounds like you might need to be careful about the “not just tolerant but supportive” thing, if you’re asking for constraints. 🙂
