Re: Yukon Forum Debate Sours (The News, Dec. 6)
Gosh, I sure would hate to be married to a member of the Yukon Party caucus.
Imagine this. My Yukon Party spouse says, “Let’s plan a special family vacation,” and then doesn’t participate at all while the kids and I hammer out an awesome plan to hike the West Coast Trail. Enjoy some nature, you know?
Then the day before we are to leave, spouse says, “No, I don’t like that idea. Let’s go to Calgary.” Spouse spends the whole holiday hanging out with his oil and gas buddies and ignoring us.
Or imagine this. When we first got married, we decided we’d have four special dates together every year, say on each of our birthdays, our anniversary and Valentine’s Day. Now, years have gone by without a special date.
I thought we were having one in December 2012, and I went to the restaurant, but spouse didn’t show up. Now, spouse says we need to have meetings to plan our dates. Is he trying to get out of something? Is this a committed relationship, or what?
Worst of all is when we’re having a disagreement, and spouse tells me his foot is sore or he’s irritated, so I should keep my feelings to myself.
In real life, I’m so glad I’m not married to such an immature and inconsiderate spouse. I sure wish the members of the Yukon Party caucus weren’t so immature and inconsiderate of their constituents.
