Bathroom painting
 
I painted my G/F's front bathroom in a nice eggshell finish. It looks great, but she insists that bathrooms must be painted with a semi-gloss or a gloss paint. These bathrooms do not get much use, no kids, and no reason to wash down the walls. I think the real shiny paint looks old fashioned, and she insists on it.

Whose side are you on?

Who is correct?

How can you even ask? A woman is never wrong. Just ask her.

Egg would be my choice but give her what she wants so that you keep getting what you want. Give and take.

I read Workaholic's reply to my G/F and she laughed hysterically (Austin taught me the origin of hysterical recently!) and she now admits she was wrong, and I was right. I shall claim this victory all the way to the sofa tonight, which is probably where I will be sleeping.

Thanks go out to my fellow manly-Men. ;)

Victories are short lived women never let us forget that.

What is this hysterical laughter lesson that Austin taught you?

havasu 09-22-2013 11:17 PM

The origin of the word has to do with hysterectomies. I'm sure you can imagine the rest of this.

If a man says something in the woods with no woman around to hear, is he still wrong? Of course he is.

You're right, eggshell is fine for a bathroom.
