I think she's saying you don't listen to her...

My wife and I joke about stuff like this all the time. I won't go "Dr. Phil" or somethin' but a little bit of playful banter is a good thing, just don't make it personal.

IMO that is open for how you look at it.....You either don't pay attention to what she says...or it doesn't matter what happens because she/ or you guys are that happy...for me it is the later.

I finally figured out a lot of the things people stress about are just that...things. And as such have no true effect on my life with my wife.

The best friend thing is good!!
Okay off soap box...just my .02

Most people do stress over "things." I've been experiencing this first-hand as of late, not only from a friend who I've basically cut off because of his behavior, but also another friend, and even family members.

Materialistic things seem to be an "issue" with people in my life. What people don't understand is that it doesn't matter what you own or how much money you do or don't have, the core parts of your life do not change. Those with health issues will still have health issues, those in bad relationships will still be in bad relationships, etc. etc...

The grass is always greener on the other side.

My wife does the same thing. Sounds like she has a sense of humor. I think our old ladies should get together and go bowling. As far as stress......you wouldn't be normal if you didn't have it. Just gotta know when to let the little things go. Try to remember what it was like being a kid and try to get back to what's important Enjoy life man....

The order in which you do that is important in my mind.

Great responses, like I mentioned, she sent it with a smile. In the picture, while shes talking about what outfits the girls where wearing, he's thinking what mods are next on his Jeep, or how her best friends husband just put new shoes on his Jeep...

I could only wish mine forgot things we talked about. While my wife never uses the past against me or brings it up in reference she never forgets anything I said... sometimes its a benefit and sometimes not so much

Shoot my hubby has the worst memory! He couldn't even remember our anniversary and was arguing with me till I pulled out the marriage license! That was probably one of our funniest fights! Yes it turned into a fight

My wife complained about my not remembering what she said when we talked. There was a long pause in the conversation and then I told her that was only partially true. Whenever she tells me something important, I always remember it. I guess I queered my defense when I told her I was still waiting for something important.

I think that's called Selective Memory, a condition from which, in my experience, all males suffer. I don't say men, because my sons do not yet fall into that category. I sometimes wonder if that isn't part of the curriculum when boys are gathered in fourth grade for the puberty video. "Now don't forget, boys, you are not required to remember everything your wife says..."

I would like to acknowledge, though, that some of the little things remembered are sweet. This morning my husband said that on his way out to the farm he was going to stop at 7/11 to get coffee and a donut, and I jokingly said that sounded good, get one for me while you're at it.

He remembered my favorite donut and brought it to me...and then went to the farm! Love that guy!

You think that's bad? My ex not only forgot our anniversary, he forgot that he was married.

Yeah my dad forgot that all the time. If I was my mom I think I would've killed my dad. I told my husband he only gets 1 chance at marriage with me. If he screws up I am gone I won't be his doormat. We have made it 9 years so I guess something stuck with him
