Another Ridiculous Argument

Another Ridiculous Argument

“Is ‘90 Day Fiancé on Tonight?”

(If you don’t know this show, you haven’t really missed much; the Cranky’s are addicted to train wreck reality TV, this is a Big League train wreck.


“Is ‘90 Day Fiancé on Tonight?”


Mrs. C does not like to waste words, I never know if she didn’t hear me or just does not want to waste words.  When she does this, I answer for her in a fake squeaky Mrs. C voice and have a conversation with myself…she does not like that.

“Oh, 90 Day Fiancé? Why yes I believe it is, perhaps you should check the guide.”

“Good idea, I will do that.”

“Let me know when you find out.”

“Why yes…yes I will do that.”

Mrs. C finally gets miffed at my mimicking her to hold my own conversation.

“I shook my head yes!”

“How would I know you shook your head yes, I was not looking at you!”

“Well you should look.”

“Maybe you should just use your words.”

“If you would look at me when you ask a question, I wouldn’t have to use words, you could see me nod my head yes!”

“Well you just wasted about humpty-diddle words telling me that you nodded your head yes and that I should look at you when I ask a question, and if you had just friggin said ‘YES!’ in the first place you would have saved all those words!”

“You are such a jerk!”

“You are a big word saving Stupid-Head!”


“I heard that... What time is the show on?”


Me mimicking again.

“I think they re-run last weeks at seven and a new episode is on at 8.”

“I put up seven fingers and then eight…why don’t you ever look?”

“Why don’t you just use your words?”

“I shouldn’t have to!”

Behind her back I silently mouth her answer.

“I heard that!”

“You’re scary, you know that?”

“Yeah, but I’m cute.”

Cute wins a lot of arguments in our home.


  1. I think she should use her words, just in case you are staring at the TV.

  2. Have you thought of making a reality TV show of you and Mrs C? It will be very popular, I think.

    God bless.

  3. Carry on carrying on, I enjoy these

  4. If i had to look up at someone every time i talked to him/her, i'd never get my work done!

  5. We have similar conversations in our house, made even more difficult when the batteries are wearing down in his hearing aids Thankfully, he is cute also.

  6. You two are something else. Never a dull moment.

    Have a fabulous day and enjoy the show. 😎

  7. Is Mrs. C the Purveyor of All Knowledge? Look it up yourself! Maybe it's not the use of words, but the idea of having to do EVERYTHING for you, even though you are capable of doing it yourself. Oh, sorry. I might be projecting here.

  8. I agree with Victor. Seriously, you two need your own reality show. I never watch them but I would love to watch The Crankys.

  9. On a side note, I find 90DF the most educational reality show ever. I love learning about new cultures,

  10. Those conversations are ones I hold mentally with my husband. He really doesn't listen, or understand my intent when we talk. So I skip to then end and give him the abbreviated version.

  11. Hilarious. You DO make this stuff up, don't you?

    1. I seldom make stuff up! I may embellish a bit though.

  12. Cute doesn’t cut it here. I’ve played that card too often.

  13. Hahaha...this reminds me of the couple who wouldn't talk to each other after a fight. They'd give each other the "silent treatment." One time, the husband had to catch an early flight the next day, so he wrote on a piece of paper for his wife: "Wake me at 5:00 a.m."

    The next morning he woke up at 7:00 a.m., realizing he had missed his flight. Furious, he yelled at his wife. She just pointed to his night stand. There was a piece of paper: "It's 5:00 a.m. Wake up!"
