    I have long ago learned that no matter how right you are, you're wrong and will be punished accordingly.

    It isn't so much as you are wrong, but the rules can change any time and you are not required to be updated when the rules change.

    Word for word conversation I had with my dad 19.6 years ago after being married to my wife for 6 months.....

    "I am done dad...F this marriage BS..."

    "What happened?"

    "Well she wants to get this car cover...I told her it's a bad idea and that I am right about......."

    "What? No son...No....That'll never do...Your days of being right are over...Done..."

    "What do you mean by that?"

    "Look son, if it ain't going to cost $20,000 or someone get hurt or killed over it you just say "Yes ma'am" and let it ride..."

    "Are you serious..."

    "Yes sir....You know how your mom makes all of the little decisions and I make the big ones?"

    "Yeah..."

    "We have been married since 1963 and we have not had a big decision yet..."

    "So even if we are right???"

    "Yep...Just let it ride...Like I said, as long as it ain't over $20,000 or going to cost someone their life..."

    "Thanks dad..."

    "You know how your whole life you kind of thought you were kind of smart? Well read?"

    "Yes sir..."

    "Well son....You are getting ready to find out just how big a dumb *** you really are..."

    "Did Papaw?????"

    "Yep...He taught me...Now I am teaching you...."

    Just passed twenty years and like my father I make all of the big decisions.....We just don't have any big decisions to make...

    Maybe not so far wrong! True story (and thread diversion): When I was stationed in a NATO unit in Germany, we got heads up that a new American officer was inbound. He had thoroughly German name -- won't use his real one, but something like Wilhelm Friedrich Stauffenberg. The Germans in our unit were very interested, thought he was first-generation American citizen, parents from the homeland, maybe even born in Germany and hey! Probably speaks German like a native!

    Then 1st Lt Stauffenberg showed up: 100% Puerto Rican. Spoke with a PR accent so heavy even us Amis had trouble understanding him sometimes. Turns out his grandfather was a German seaman on a merchant ship that was in a Puerto Rican port when WWII started. Grandpappy Stauffenberg decided "Kein Krieg für mich!" and jumped ship, found a local girl, settled down. All the kids since then had been given German names.

    Back to the fight....

    On a side note, if a man says something, and a woman isn't around to hear it, is he still wrong?

    Also, if a woman is always right, and a man is always wrong, and a man tells a woman she is right, is he right or wrong?
