No Such Thing as Happily Ever After….

In reality, married life is fraught with pain and strife:

DEAR ABBY: Please help my husband and me settle an argument. He hates when I step out of the shower onto the bath mat to dry off, leaving it wet. I think that’s what the bath mat is for. Who’s right? — LISA IN LEXINGTON, S.C.

DEAR LISA: You are. The alternative would be to step out of the shower onto a tile floor — which could cause a slip and fall, or onto carpet, which would become moldy. After you have finished drying off, however, the bath mat should be hung up to dry.

Oh PUH-LEEEEZE. I am the queen of getting unreasonably upset about minor, ridiculous things, and even I think this is absurd. I wish Abby had said as much, rather than granting this woman the triumph of being “right,” and thus validating that there is even something to argue about here.

  1. hey, its kristina. i am in complete agreement with the originial poster to dear abby. one of my biggggest pet peeves in life is a wet bathmat. it completely grosses me out. Personally, I turn the water off in the shower, grab my towel while i am still standing in the tub and dry off. The mat gets a little wet but not sopping like it would be if you drip all over it. I do however agree with you in saying that abby should have told these fuckers to get a life, but i understan this woman’s plight…

  2. Hey you!Thanks for reading! And thank you, as always, for putting my thoughts into blunter, even more straightforward terms.
