Listen, I know the reason our significant other is our significant other, and the reason we share the same spaces in the first place, is because we love them.
But people were not meant to be shoved into small(ish) spaces together for days on end with no break, and as couples are now spending copious amounts of time together, well…things are happening.
And while I’m sure some of those things aren’t exactly pleasant, these 12 tweets are definitely funny.
12. I’d say you’re only about halfway through your punishment.
If you count silence as a punishment which I definitely would not.
My boyfriend said something about the NFL draft and I said “if the NFL has a draft it should close the window” and did finger guns and now he has not spoken to me in 12 hours

11. Productivity is a sliding scale.
Proof we all react to stress in different ways.
my boyfriend in quarantine: slow cooking ribs, trying a new meatball recipe, doing laundry
me in quarantine: sleeve of crackers, haven't showered, checking out the flickr albums of the ex girlfriend of my 2009 ex boyfriend

10. Some beans are just beans, and some are special.
I’m just loopy enough to find deeper meaning in that statement.
My partner and I got in a fight because I gave away two very important cans of beans to the little free library if you are wondering how my quarantine is going.

9. There’s got to be SOMETHING we haven’t discussed.
Also, John Mulaney is hilarious.

8. That’s not a surprise, but whatever.
It’s better than saying “I don’t care” and then turning up your nose.
Quarantine update: I asked my boyfriend if he had a lunch craving or if I should surprise him. He said he wanted a surprise but “the surprise should be Bagel Bites”

7. I wonder what his hair looks like now yeesh.
Also, this meme just made me giggle.

6. The couple that plays together stays together.
Maybe even after you don’t have to anymore.

5. When you make yourself cringe.
But still, you just can’t stop.
“So how was your day” -me to my boyfriend after spending every waking second with him

4. That’s nicer than screaming “put on your f*cking headphones!” the way I do.
More effective? Maybe, maybe not.

3. As long as he got some alcohol, too, I wouldn’t complain.
Although some bacon would be nice.
For everyone complaining about being single during quarantine, I sent my boyfriend to the store to get groceries (FOR THE WHOLE WEEK) and he came back with this…. pic.twitter.com/shJc4uaJyZ

2. Life is give and take my friend.
So take the remote and put on Little Women post haste.
Boyfriend hasn’t been “in the mood” for Little Women for a month of quarantine and now there is a 10 part Michael Jordan documentary coming out and I am supposed to just fall into line?

1. Variety is the spice of life.
So is having someone to complain to who isn’t the person you’re complaining about.
I miss the days when my work wife and my wife wife were different people.

I’ve gotta say, I feel these people’s pain!
