You: Stomp. Scream. Slam. “It’s all your fault!”
Him: Throwing hands up. “I made a mistake! I’m sorry!”
He did it wrong. Again. Your mani-pedi check bounced. How are you supposed to look your manicurist in the eyes next time? OK, at the top of her head. Whatever.
And who knows what else you’ll bounce because ‘you-know-who’ balanced the checkbook wrong. Mistake? Ye-ah.
But let’s see. Does stomping out of the room fix it? Or blaming the whole thing on him, fix it? It’s your joint checking account, after all.
Maybe the “it’s all your fault” routine could be 86-ed in favor of “checkbooks can be a bear to balance. Why don’t we sit down together and see if we can find a way that works better.”
Just a thought . . .
