Silly, Petty Arguments We've Had

Thank you, Wagatha Christie

Coleen Rooney and Rebecca Vardy have given me the greatest day on social media ever. EVER. It was thrilling - Coleen's short story had everything I look for in a good read; suspense, lies, and finally; a killer punch-line. Oof!

For those saying that it's just 2 very rich women being petty, arguing over who said what to whom... you would be completely right. However, in a world where the news is dominated by Brexit and misery and death, it's refreshing to have a bit of petty entertainment between 2 WAGs to distract.

And they're not the only ones who have been embroiled in petty rubbish. Reader, we have all been there (although most of us are significantly poorer and less well-known, granted.)

 

  • “My wife always mutes the beep on the microwave and I need to hear the beep! It’s a daily argument!”

 

  • “My husband insists he’s over 6 foot tall, and he is absolutely not, so a couple of weekends ago I angrily took out the measuring tape and measured all 5 feet 10 and three quarters of him!”

 

  • “We argued over who would win in a fight, Godzilla or King Kong. Obviously Godzilla, she disagreed!”

 

  • “I was in the doghouse for a couple hours because her pal got her house renovated and we can’t afford to get ours done. I don’t know how that was my fault, but it somehow was?”

 

  • “Our recurrent petty argument is over the heating. I HATE central heating and only think it should be used when it’s actually cold – if you’re cold at home, put a jumper on. The house is like a furnace and it’s not even that cold yet!”

 

  • “Hi Paula, recurring argument we have is when I tell herself she is turning out like her auld mother.......she never seems happy about it?!”

  • “My wife and I got into a huge fight about the amount of butter to use on the bread when making a toasted sandwich. Fight lasted an hour and we both said some hurtful things. All over a toasted sandwich!”

 

  • “Asked her if she wanted anything from the chipper last week and she said no and then got upset with me when I didn’t bring her anything home!”

 

  • “I told her Madonna is a self-obsessed bore. Then I got to listen to a lecture about what a feminist icon is.”

 

  • “How to pronounce the word data. I pronounce it day-ta. She says dah-ta”

 

  • “How to correctly pronounce 'scone'. That's not a petty argument. It's a very serious argument. I think every Irish person has had that argument, and it’s S-CONE”

 

  • “Morning Paula, we argue over which way the toilet paper hangs on the wall. I leave it hanging to the front, my partner hangs it to the back, at the wall. Drives me mad!”

 

  • “I got into an argument with my wife about winning the lottery this week. She was arguing that she didn't want to win 190 million euro because over that would be too much money to win.”

 

  • Hi Paula, I knew a woman who pronounced Donkey as "Dunkey" like Monkey. When you look at spelling of each you see where she was coming from. Still ridiculous though!”
