Think back to when you were a kid, when imagination turned anything into fun. No doubt that you’ve had first-hand experience with staring contents and getting jinxed. Most likely you’ve outgrown these childish games. Or have you?
Ncehs shared this joke about one stubborn couple.
This is how it goes.
Terry and his wife Darcy were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment for a few days now.
But on Sunday night, Terry realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5 a.m. for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence – and ‘lose’ – he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5 a.m.” He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, Terry woke up, only to discover it was 9 a.m. and he had missed his flight.
Furious, he was about to go and see why Darcy hadn’t awakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, “It is 5 a.m. Wake up.”
Touché. Well, she did do what he asked! (sort of). Maybe he shouldn’t ask for a favor mid-fight!
In long-term relationships, quarrels will arise, and it might be your first instinct to be just as stubborn as your partner. But while somewhat gratifying, this behavior may be more trouble than it’s worth. Communication is key to any long-lasting love, so don’t be afraid to ‘lose” the game first. You might find out that you’re actually winning in the end.
