what's the dumbest argument you've ever had?
Sometimes my husband refuses to admit that I'm right, and it is sooooo annoying! I will set a well-reasoned argument before him, but it doesn't move him. He simply doesn't agree with me. What a pain!
For instance, I am absolutely convinced that my husband uses the word "later" incorrectly. When he says, "I'll do such-and-such later", I stupidly assume he means either in a few minutes, or later in the day, or possibly even later in the week. But I assume that he has a definite plan to go ahead with the action, and that it will occur soon.
Noooooo, I am so wrong! Apparently, "later" simply means at some unspecified time in the future, which may be days, weeks, months or even years away. And even though I know this about my husband, I always get sucked in. When he says "later", I always think "Oh, great, he's going to get to that soon!", when I should be asking "WHEN EXACTLY???"
And no matter how many times I tell hubby that his use of the word "later" is not the usual interpretation, he argues with me!
Pretty dumb huh?!?
