6 ÷ 2 (2 + 1)
DH saw this equation on FB and brought it to me. As usual one of us got 1 and the other got 9 (no, I'm not telling you who got which answer) and we actually started arguing about it. Even after I found evidence that both answers are valid and that the problem is actually with how the equation is written DH decided that the REAL problem is that "smart people" (he includes me in this group) changed the rules of mathematics because "they" like to confuse "other people" (not dumb people) so they feel superior.
He was just so convinced he was right that automatically expected me to agree with him. when I didn't agree, instead of exploring the possibility that I might be right, or accept that both answers might be valid, he goes on a tirade. Once I realized we weren't getting anywhere good I cut him off to deal with the kids, who were dragging their heels getting ready for school.
What kind of stupid arguments do you get into with your DH/SO?
