How not to lose an argument, MonkeyGirl style

I told my husband that if he didn't start rinsing out his "to go" coffee mugs when he got home from work, I was going to start throwing them away. The smell of 3 day old curdled creamer when I take the lid off to wash them makes me wanna hurl.

So he started using my good stainless steel coffee mug that was a gift from the buddies I left behind when I moved to this nice little corner of Hell.

Sentimental value + nice mug = I won't throw it away.

Why are you washing his mug in the first place?

Bastard.

Hide it. Call his bluff and say you threw it out!

I have a solution.

I will send you a small bag of expressed breast milk. Let him see you dump it into the mug.

Even if you wash it in the dishwasher, set on the "sanitize" cycle, he'll never drink from it again, if he's like the Cranky Husband!

I have to agree with Mousie on this one. It worked when I hid my kids toys that they knew I'd "never toss," I'm betting it will work on the hubby as well.

The only question I'd have is......do you leave the creamer in the coffee mugs and make him clean them out when you return his treasures?

Oh....the lovliness of being a wicked woman. So many options.!

We have this trouble with sippy cups- especially ones left in the car. Nothing like home-made yogurt or cottage cheese to get the ol' nose going! Blech.

Oh no my monkey friend. We will send you more, many, many, endlessly more sentimental mugs. Monkey husband cannot be allowed to set this precedent for certain others to immitate. They're in the mail!

That's dirty pool! And quite frankly, I think it's the first shot of an all out coffee mug war. Don't *MESS* with a gals fave coffee mug, that's grounds for serious java retribution. Like....sprinkling a little ground up ex-lax into his coffee grounds.... Oh yeah..I'm mean. :)

Cranky Prof, He'd probably say it tastes better after she did that. Some men are really weird that way.
