Default 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?

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.
