Yesterday I was talking to a woman who was very busy and probably very distracted. At the end of the conversation, she said something a little flippant as she walked away. It bothered me all day. I had no idea what she was talking about and it was rather random.
I told Garry what happened and asked, "Isn't that weird? I have no idea what THAT was all about."
He sensibly answered, "I don't know. I wasn't there and did not hear the context and the tone."
Now, this seems to be a complete break-down of spousal duties. I don't really need a devil's advocate; I need someone to have my back. It seems like the perfect answer should have been:
"That sounds very weird. But I always thought that she was a little odd. Don't let her weirdness ruin your afternoon."
See? That would have been so much better.
