My husband has a friend who is constantly arguing with me about little things or making scornful remarks about something I do or say.
I don’t want to be as rude to him as he is to me, so I just keep quiet and try to avoid him.
Queenie, can you think of any way I can answer him or shut him up without being rude?—Offended wife
Try telling him, “Maybe you are right. I will have to think about it.” Then walk away and go about your business, doing whatever you think is best.
