Over at Reddit, people are sharing the stupidest reasons they fight with their significant others, and there are some real doozies. And by real doozies, I mean super freaking dumb. Seriously, you guys, kids are starving and the world is dying. Let's have some perspective before we pick a fight with your boyfriend because he looked at another girl in your dreams.
1. Someone did something ~wrong~.
For example, "I used a bowl to store some soup, because it was exactly the volume I needed, and it had a tight sealing lid. Apparently that bowl is only for storing baked goods."
People have some dumb effing fights over animals. "He was sitting with my cat in his lap and directed me towards the cat's back saying his fur was going brown. My cat is black and white and has no brown on him at all. I told my boyfriend I couldn't see the brown and he started a massive argument, started googling pictures of brown cats and holding my cat up to the laptop to compare. I disagreed again and told him I couldn't see it. He ended up going to sit in another room for about 2 hours because of how angry he was about the colour of a fucking cat."
3. Things that are just plain nuts.
"I hug a pillow when I sleep. Guess who got jealous." For real!?!?
This one is fairly common! From the normal, "I dreamed he cheated on me and got mad at him IRL" to, "So I once had a dream my husband was going to hang out with a guy named Paco, who was actually his ex-boyfriend who he never told me about. He didn't think it was a big deal. It was. My husband is straight, I am a woman, but damn it all if I didn't want to smother him with a pillow the moment I woke up. So much irrational rage. That was early on in my pregnancy though (I'm bumpin' along at 6 months, so it was around 3-4 months) and I think my hormones were really wacky."
So many almost-brawls and actual brawls over dishes, it's un-freaking-believable. "She tried getting into it with me over her having to load and unload the dishwasher. She quickly lost when I brought up how I mow the lawn and clean the house..." (Chore wheels, people! Chore wheels are the answer!)
6. Games. (Like, board games and video games.)
I once almost broke up with a boyfriend over a game of Sorry. I was not sorry. Here's another example, "Mario party. I hate games of luck. There's a ton of luck, not to mention, if I was winning, she'd sabotage me in the mini games, so I would do the same to her. We'd both argue so much about that stupid game but she insisted we keep playing it."
7. Wait, what?
Things that are so stupid, they defy understanding. Like, so: "We fought about laundry containers. I wasn't differentiating between hampers and laundry baskets and he was."
8. Weird little lies.
"'When You Tell a Weird Little Lie and It Spirals Out of Control' is the story of my life. We once had a fight about whether he'd used mayonnaise. I just wanted to add it to the shopping list if it was all used. He said it wasn't but the mayo bottle was in the bin. I said I was going to add it to the shopping list if he needed more. Once he knew that was the only reason I was asking, he said 'oh well in that case, yes. We need more mayo. I was just saying we didn't need it because I didn't want you to get angry'. WTF. The only reason I got angry is because he wasted my time saying we didn't need mayo for no good reason. It still makes me mad to think about." #mayogate
9. Sports or TV shows.
Here's a classic example of stupid things couples fight over: "We regularly fight over our favorite teams on shows like The Amazing Race, just spirals out of control into the childish 'no you're wrong,' 'you're more wrong.'" It's just sports! It's just TV! It does not matter!
