You've been pushing for something for years & always shut down. Your spouse suddenly does it & then proceeds to gloat about what a great idea they had. Are you...
Happy Wife = Happy Life
Yes Dear, that was a great idea :)
You have to learn how to suggest things so other people think its their own idea. Works great for bosses too.
If I've been riding that horse for years, darn straight I'm gonna fight for the appeasing pat on the head.
I am used to it by now.
And also don't give a crap as long as it happens.
Give it to her. The important thing is that it is happening now. Sometimes your best ideas are the ones you let others take the credit for.
Yeah I understand that. It's like losing weight. It's much harder for women to lose weight than men. You don't need some dingdong to gloat about it. :-/
Absolutely disappointed in society. Why was it a good idea when she said it and not me? It would make me realize that prejudice isn't as gone as we had hoped
Not worth the effort or chance of upsetting her. She probably already remembers it was my idea because women can gunnysack like nobody else. Just enjoy and celebrate. Pffffft!
Haha! You have it all figured out! :P
Ha - yeah! We call it "managing up". :)
