  • Bite your tongue till they get home, and they say, not meanly, that they hurt your feelings when they said, "X". and drop it. Don't expound on and on.

  • i bite my tongue at first. if he is upset and i say something it somehow makes things worse. i wait until he has calmed down and talk to him about it.

  • I work a stressfull job too. If he wants to snap at me, I will let it go at that time, but you can bet your sweet bottom he will hear about it later. Especially since I get the added job of coming home and taking care of the kids and making and cleaning up supper and taking care of the dog.

  • Wait til he gets home, give him a couple of minutes to destress. And then I tell him, that I didnt mean to interrupt/stress/be a pain in the butt BUT what he did hurt my feelings and I am still hurt. Normally when my so does that he calls me about 5 mins later to appologize and explain that he was dealing with the moron in front of him and didnt mean to take it out on me.
