It’s hard to know what to do when you find yourself angry with the ones that you love. That kind of emotion can build up something fierce, but you don’t want to allow it to poison you, and you certainly don’t want to make things more miserable.
Some people say that when you’re upset with your partner you should “talk to them” and “tell them what you’re upset about and why” so that the two of you can “come to a better understanding” and “remain in a healthy relationship.”
But come on. Talking? Flapping my lips around? Choosing a bunch of words? Who’s got the time or the energy? Twitter has some much more elegant solutions.
10. Live, laugh, love
That last one actually took me a second.
When I am aggravated with my husband, I send him pictures of “live, laugh, love”decorations I am buying for the house, intentionally sing slightly off lyrics to songs, and say things like “Chris Hemsworth was great as Captain America.” Because I am evil.

9. Donut unto others
It’s an all-out war of mild inconvenience.
My wife ate the last donut this morning so I went in her car and readjusted the driver's seat and mirrors.

8. Spider spied her
As an arachnophobe, this would be grounds for me moving out.
When I'm mad at my girlfriend I just tell her I saw a huge spider in the house and let it live.

7. Turn up the heat
*Dad reflexes intensify*
My husband pissed me off so I sent him a picture of the thermostat set to 72 degrees.

6. Cheers for beers
Wait, this is the same account as the last one?
Are ya’ll ok?
My husband pissed me off so I logged into his beer rating app and gave a bunch of mediocre beers five-star reviews.

5. Chip off the old block
You’re a monster, go to jail.
My husband pissed me off so I made him his favorite chocolate chip cookies and used black beans instead of chocolate

4. Vial actions
Joke’s on you, it’ll never get off of you either.
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.

3. Mad vs mad
Honestly I can’t even throw stones because I’ve been in this position before.
When I'm mad at my girlfriend I don't share the cute, funny memes with her I know she'll love. So I screen shot them to send them to her when I'm not mad anymore. #love

2. Cat and mouse
A solid, classic prank for any occasion.
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. Pajama party
Why do they even make those?
husband pissed me off tonight so I gave him button up PJ’s for the baby 🙂💛
