Marriage 301, Lecture 663: You're not doing it right

SH: No, don't do that!

Me: All I'm doing is asking Cuisinart if the [coffee] carafe is going to break again after a year.

SH: I can't believe you're wasting time writing to customer service. You don't have the model number or the serial number.

Me: They're not required fields.

SH: But you're not being technically accurate!

Me: So?

SH: When I correspond with a company about a product, I want to provide as many technical details as possible. What kind is it? What are the specs?

Me: Yeah? I don't care about that. I care about getting a free replacement. You just want to show off.

SH: Maybe the helpless housewife approach is better.
