When you’re in a relationship, communication is absolutely key.
…is what every single human says before proceeding to absolutely never communicate and find new and inventive ways to sulk and repress their feelings while getting ever-angrier at their partners for not knowing why. It’s a fun game.
And like any game, this one has its breakthrough players. The ones that really change the standards. The ones who take us to new heights. And then tweet about it.
15. The Sandwich
Dang kid, where are you buying a $15 grilled cheese?
I’m really just in disbelief that I went on a date with a guy and nicely told him I didn’t think we were compatible and he Venmo requested me for dinner, I had a damn grilled cheese ??? pic.twitter.com/aTzs23oQAX

14. Making the Grade
Just seeing this red ink gave me all kinds of flashbacks.

Hint hint wink wink nudge nudge.

12. Water, Water Everywhere
I gather your husband doesn’t have a great knack for testing things.
My husband pissed me off so when he wasn't looking I poured water on the floor in front of the dishwasher. He's been fixing it for the past 2 hours.

11. Crank it Down
WE’RE NOT MADE OF MONEY, KAREN.
My husband pissed me off so I sent him a picture of the thermostat set to 72 degrees.

10. The Silent Treatment
For both you and your phone.
When I’m mad at my husband, I ask him to help me find my phone and then put it in my pocket on silent.

9. Lashing Out
What kind of monster…
I know it sounds mean but when I’m mad at my wife and want to lash out, I open a bottle of some condiment when there’s already one open.

8. The Scrape
These are the things that really drive us apart.
Thinking about making an audio recording of me eating cereal and clanking my spoon on the bowl just to send to my wife when we are in a fight.

7. The Vile Vial
That’s literally never going to go away so I hope you’re good with an eternal feud.
My husband is obsessed with keeping our new car in pristine condition, so I carry a little vial of glitter with me at all times in case he pisses me off.

6. Bean Things
My husband pissed me off so I made him his favorite chocolate chip cookies and used black beans instead of chocolate

5. Bon Appetit
That’s the way to do it.
My boyfriend pissed me off but I’m a grown woman so instead of yelling I’m just gonna order an appetizer without telling him and then not share

4. Playing a Different Tune
Now the algorithm doesn’t know WHAT to do.
I’m mad at my wife so I liked a lot of songs on her Pandora playlist that I know she didn’t like

3. Remote Viewings
LOL, he thought he could move on.
My husband pissed me off and think he finna sit in the living room and watch tv in peace. So, I downloaded the LG remote app and keep turning the TV off from the bedroom.
He came in here and I acted like I was sleep. So now he thinks we have ghosts. ☠️☠️☠️

2. Playin’ Around
This is a great and super simple prank.
When I’m mad at my husband I like to plug my usb mouse into his computer and move the mouse around while he’s playing online games

1. Feeling Unfulfilled
No special delivery for you.
When I’m upset with my wife, I don’t get mad, I just cancel all her reoccurring Amazon deliveries
