Three is the Limit

Couple Arguing Silhouette - Woman Pointing At Man, HD Png Download ...

“I don’t want to hear it!”  She slammed her purse down on the table and turned to him saying, “I asked for one simple thing.  Just pay the electric bill.  I don’t think that was asking too much.  But you couldn’t find 5 minutes when you were out today to get it done?”

“I have a confession to make,” he said, and the woman turned on her heals to stare at him.  “I was out at the range and a buddy of mine talked me into going into the Sportsman’s Shop with him and they had the coolest gun there…

“Don’t tell me you bought another gun?  You have three but only two hands to hold them with.  What are you going to do with a fourth one?”

“Protect us when things turn bad.”

“But why four when you ONLY HAVE TWO HANDS?”

“I thought maybe yo…”

“Don’t you dare say I could use them.  You know I hate guns and only barely tolerate the ones you have here.  I will NOT have my house over-run with fire power.  It is pointless and unsafe for my granddaughter.”

“Well it was my tax refund money.”

“Yeah, well it is my house and I don’t want that many here!”

It’s Not My Fault

“Don’t give me that.  I will not be your scapegoat,” she shouted at him.

“I didn’t say you were solely to blame, but you had a say in things too,” he turned towards her as she moved across the room.  “It might have been ok if you hadn’t been so pushy.”

“Pushy?  I will show you pushy,” she said as she walked directly towards him.

He put his hands up and held her shoulders so she couldn’t reach him.  He responded, “Let’s not make this physical.  It is not worth it.”

“Fine,” she said and stormed out the door.
