Marriage 401, Lecture 592: Sports authority

SH: We can't stop. The score is 6 to 5.

Me: Yes. I said the first person who got to six games would win.

SH: But that's not how you play tennis.

Me: That's how I play tennis.

SH: You have to win by two games.

Me: I don't care.

SH: That's the rule.

Me: You and your "rules are rules" mentality.

SH: It's the right thing to do. It's only fair.

Me: I don't care. It's how I want to play.

SH: It's against the rules!

Me: What - are there tennis police who are going to knock down the door and drag me away tonight? I refuse to be bound by someone else's rules.
