My Ugly Moment...

I'm usually a pleasant person, but my sense of being right sometimes gets the best of me. And boy was that an ugly picture...

A few nights ago, dinner wasn't thawing out as planned, so we decided to use our BOGO Chipotle coupon (which is still good for a couple more days!). I tucked my coupon into the diaper bag, but for some reason, didn't fold it small enough to fit into the pocket. So upon arriving at Chipotle, I gave the coupon to my husband, since I had to unbuckle the little one out of her car seat and he would end up paying for dinner, and we joined the rather long line. After many minutes of waiting, passing our daughter back and forth, ordering rice, steak, and beans, we were to get our amazing deal. My husband quietly asked me for the coupon, and I was shocked! I must have been quite a little spectacle, but had little clue just how insistent I was that I had given him the coupon before I took the little one out of the car! There was absolutely no yelling, but my husband wanted to quickly pay full price, yet I was SURE we had our coupon. Then the manager who was working the cash register piqued up, "I'll honor the coupon. You don't have to fight."
Ugh. I didn't even realize we were fighting. . . because I was right! I still don't think we were fighting. . . anyways, I apologized to my husband for making a small scene. And the coupon . . . he found it in his pocket when we came home.

So, my question is this, is there a gracious way of telling someone you're right?!?


  1. This made me laugh out loud. As far as I know, there's no way to tell someone that you're right (which is another way of saying that they're wrong) graciously! But the good news is now you can get another BOGO deal at Chipotle, right?

  3. Hilarious. I think this post is "I told you so" enough.

  4. Ha, good times that must have been. Sometimes a smile and taking a step back and letting the situation unfold is all you need.
