The Silent Treatment?

January 6th, 2019

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly the man realized that the next day he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early
morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5:00 AM.” He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t wakened him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up!!”

Greens might be the ‘best’ at startiing the silent treatment, but their other-Color partner can also think of ways to get even…

It’s also wise for the non-Green partner to avoid being the instigator of the silent treatment. To paraphrase an exchange from the Big Bang Theory: You get even with him, Amy! Give Sheldon the silent treatment! No! I did that once. He told me it was the most magical eight hours he’s ever spent with me.
