Marriage 201, Lecture 532: Honesty is not the best policy
SH: This is the better grater for grating cheese.
Me: Says who? Why do you care if I use the other grater?
SH: Because you're wrong.
Me: That's what you think. But why does it matter to you if I don't use the grater you like?
SH: Because sometimes I have to wash it.
Me: So don't wash it. Leave it for me. You're just a control freak. What's it to you how I grate cheese?
SH: Because I like to be annoying.
Me: I know.
SH: At least I'm honest about it. That's the universal excuse.
Me: That is such a BS statement. Saying you're "honest" about something gives you no virtue whatsoever and does not make you any less annoying.
SH: If I say that, it means I don't have to feel bad about it.
