Marriage 301, Lecture 671: The art and science of nagging


SH: It's going to rain! We're not going to play tennis. Why didn't you nag me to hurry? It's your fault.

Me: I thought I wasn't supposed to nag you.

SH: There are times when you should nag.

Me: When?

SH: If I don't want to be nagged, it's your fault for nagging. If I do want to be nagged, it's your fault for not nagging. The only safe strategy is to ask me if I want to be nagged.
