my husband and i had this 2 year rivalry over baby corn. what's the dumbest rivalry you've had with your s.o

when we're just best friends he came over to my place, we got chinese food. well i got a mixed vegetable platter. i said "man they skimped on the baby corn, there's only 2" he was like "baby corn?" so i held up a baby corn with my chopsticks. he was like "that's not corn!!" i said "yes it is, what is it then if not corn?!" he's like "i don't know, but it's not corn" me-"it's corn picked prematurely" him-"it's not corn, you can eat the whole thing, you can't eat the cob of real corn" -me"it's premature it hasn't become tough yet!!" him-"it's not corn, it doesn't taste like corn". this went on for 2 years, i would say the word baby corn and he'd say "it's not corn!!!!" finally today we were in the grocery store and i saw baby corn in the produce section. i picked up a package and said "look it says baby CORN" he laughed and was like "ok i accept the fact that it's corn" lets hear your silly rivalries now

  • The one i can think of right now is what it means to double park. I say taking up 2 parking spaces at once. He says parking on both sides of the street in a residential neighborhood. Like when 1 car is parked on the curb in front of a house and you park on the curb on the opposite side. I know i'm right; I can't wait to show him the info to prove him wrong, lol.

  • when DH and I first got married, we didnt tell anybody. A few weeks later, I found out I was pregnant. He bet me I wouldnt have the balls to call his mom and tell her (both of) the big news.... so I did! He believes me when I say Im going to do something now.

  • The great PB&J debate: Chunky PB-Seedless Strawberry jam (him) vs. Creamy PB-Raspberry jam (me).

    Also "next weekend": Does it refer to the weekend that is coming up or the weekend that follows the coming weekend?

  • I love this... The one we have all the time well a few things. If I ever say "Like" he always says, "it's Like? or it is? Drives me crazy. He also hates the word "anyways" I don't know why but he HATES it. for example. He will a story will get off track and I will say but anyways (to finish the story) and he literally gets so mad about it. he (with a grumpy voice) Anyways.. I hate that word! He also interrupts a lot which is normal for most people but if anyone interrupts him even the baby he sighs really loud glares and starts his story over again. LOL it makes me laugh which just makes him more mad. Thinking about it makes me laugh!
