I had an argument with dh, while I was browning some ground beef. He approached me and proceeded to scream in my face while I'm standing over a hot pan, and poked me in the head (in the temple to be exact). So I hit him with the rubber spatula I was cooking with. It had a small amount of grease on it, and it was definitely warm.. not scalding.. the stove was only on medium.. and it's rubber after all. I feel guilty for doing it and responding the way I did, but at the same time I feel like he instigated it, and poked me in the head assuming I wouldn't respond and he would get away with it.I feel like he needs to know that he is accountable for his actions. If he did that to a stranger a fight would ensue.. he should know better than to do it to his wife. I'm not going to put up with intimidation, I may be little but I fight back. Have you ever done something you regret but feel justified in doing at the same time?Answer Question

Omg.. for some reason I can't get a scene from I love Lucy out of my head when I just read your post. You don't sound real enraged over the fact that you were arguing and he put his hands on you at all, so your post can be taken the wrong way because I know I chuckled a bit. I agree with you 100% that he should be accountable for his actions. Did you swat him with the spatula out of self defense or anger? I think you two should sit down and make a "walk away" rule when discussing heated topics because neither one of you should "touch" each other in a bad way while arguing.

Or he's embarrassed that he got bitch smacked with a spatula for being stupid! I understand where you are coming from. When the time is right talk things over and shake it off. Tomorrow is another day.
