Ineffective Communication


October 26, 2012 » Written under Real Life

Me: You were supposed to come out here an hour ago to watch TV with me.

Hubs: You should have come check with me. If you want to watch this, you should clearly state that’s what you want to do. Clear communication is the best kind.

Me: Clear communication is the best kind? What crap is that?

Hubs: I’m sorry you feel that way. Can you explain?

Me: No, I don’t want to. You just need to know that was really stupid. Now I want donuts. *stares pointedly*

Hubs: This is not productive. Instead of saying that, perhaps you could say…

Me: I’d rather have a Little Debbie snack cake?

Hubs: *sigh* No. You should have said “I would like you to get donuts, please.”

Me: Why should I have to say what I mean? We’re married.

Hubs: That’s effective communication.

Me: I really hate the weeks when you have self-improvement classes at work.

Hubs: Why?

Me: Maybe I just win more arguments when you don’t take these stupid courses.

Hubs: You admitted you lost. Why are you smiling?

Me: It proves we are just fine together naturally. So we should stop trying to improve upon perfection. There’s nowhere to go but down. We should stay where we are.

Hubs: No. That’s not what it means.

Me: If your instructors told you that, they were just trying to sell you something. Like knowledge. Run.

Hubs: I like using my brain.

Me: I liked you better when you were just pretty.
