domestic bliss

What's the stupidest fight you've ever had with your significant other?

We want to hear your dirt.

THERE IS NOTHING like love.  It fills you with joy and rapture, makes your life more passionate and ensures that you always have someone to snuggle when you need to.

It also means that you will almost certainly partake in some of the stupidest arguments known to man, and today we’d like to hear about them.

To get you going, here are some of the things people at towers have gotten het up about.

I once had a significant argument over whether to buy store-brand or Heinz baked beans.
We are currently in the middle of a long-running battle about whether there’s any point moving from fourth gear down to third, and then to second, if you’re approaching a red light with no prospect of it turning green again before you stop.
Toilet paper. He says he can only use Andrex or Kittensoft when I come home with own brand stuff. Even if it’s 3-ply own brand. Wuss.
This year we had a big argument around the toppings available for the pancakes on pancake Tuesday.  It resulted in us not speaking for at least an hour.

There were a couple of things that came up repeatedly, and appear to be real sticking points.  Like the bath mat for example.

We argue bout *certain* people not putting the bath mat back on the radiator when they are the last person to have had a shower in the morning. It won’t dry on the floor, people!

And hair pins/kirby grips/bobby pins are also a real source of domestic anguish.

My ex had wooden floors in his bedroom and all the hairpins were down inbetween the floorboards. He went at them with a hoover one day. A broken man.
I have to stop taking them out and putting them under my pillow…!
He gets really annoyed when they dig into his back during the night.

Now, it’s time for your confessions.  What is the stupidest thing you’ve ever argued with your significant other about?
