Here’s the quick background of this story. I have a 14 month old baby who I share custody of with his mother. We have our differences but for the most we get along. Although as far as I’m concerned she is a control freak with self esteem issues. Hence some of the reasons we are no longer a couple .Its not the best of relationships but it could be worse.
We’ll periodically check in with each other just to see how our son’s day was. So this morning she calls and we have our usually 3 minute conversation about how he slept the night before,how did he eat etc etc. She called back 20 minutes later and I answered
“Yeeesssss?” in very light ,half-jokingly manner
Her: Pardon me? in very stern pissed off manner
Me: Uh I said “yeeeesssss” . Do you have a problem with that.
Her : Paraphrasing Yes I have a problem .You have no manners squak squak squak
Me: Well I’ve done that a thousand other times and know a thousand other people that do the same thing and nobody else takes issue with it. So maybe it says more about you then anyone else. If thats the sort of thing that sets you off then you have issues.
Her: I don’t want to talk to you now.
Me : Fine .Have a nice day.
Does anyone else here occasionally answer the phone that way or am I out of my mind? I asked a couple of people at work and they all agreed with me. I’m not looking for everyone to agree with me but maybe shed some light on the situation.
