Marriage 701, Lecture 324: Step one assign blame

Me: I had to drink my leftover diet Dr Pepper from lunch yesterday and I had to buy a diet Coke at work today. I am weary.

SH: Why?

Me: I didn't turn the light out until 10:30, which is later than I would like but not unusual.

SH: But I wasn't even home!

Me: I know.

SH: So it'd not my fault.

Me: Wait. Where did I say anything about it being your fault?

SH: Any time something undesirable happens, the first thing to do is to assign blame. Wait! Where are you going?

Me: I have to write this down.

SH: You know it's true! Assigning blame, airing grievances. If you're not assigning blame, you're not doing it right.
