Self exile is always the best exile. I’m all about preventative punishment.
Come sleep on the sweet couch we just got at the ARG Facebook Group.
In other news. ARG Volume 2 went to the printers yesterday! SOON the Bookopalypse will be upon my apartment.
So Lynn is one of those few ladies who lets you bank punishments so you’re scout free when you actually do something wrong? Arg you are one lucky man.
Oh no, there are always lots of Scouts involved. How else do we know what’s coming ahead?
He’s gonna eat all the Girl Scout cookies, and he’s hoping you won’t murder him, if he punishes himself in advance.
Do y’all get Girl Scout cookies in Canada?
I’m loving those pants, totally my kind of fashion!
In our house, one of us going to sleep on the couch is a punishment to the other person. Weird, right?
This happened once. I was so mad that I was like, “I’m just going to sleep right here.” Which I did, until about three in the morning, when my husband decided we had to talk it out because he couldn’t sleep.
You can do that?
Totally showing my wife this one. hahahahaha
The self-granting of indulgences.
Sleeping on the couch is fun! It’s like camping.
Except then of course she gets mad about the campfire in the living room. You just can’t win, am I right fellas?
Hey boog, just crack a window and put a tarp down on the living room carpet before starting the campfire and nobody will notice. Cheers!
I’ve never understood how you make someone sleep on the couch. I mean, do pick them up, toss them on the couch, run to the bedroom and barricade the door? Because I really don’t see how you could force the issue if they just said no.
It’s more of an agreement that because you still love the other person, you don’t want to cause an even larger fight. Even while fighting most people remember that the person they are fighting with is a loved one and therefore are not so petty as to WANT to cause more anger. Although in my house my husband and I never make the other person sleep on the couch when we fight. We just get over it and sleep together and talk about it when we’ve calmed down….maybe cus we’re both guys? *shrug*
I don’t think anyone is forced to sleep on the couch, I think you just respect your partner enough that if they request it, you do it.
Also I don’t really know because our couch is super comfy and it is so not a punishment to sleep on it.
Agreed. I think suggestions like that are just good for the moment and refusing to respect such a wish could only make the fight that much worse. It would also set a pretty lame precedent in the relationship, like, “If you can’t physically make me do or not do something, why should I listen to you?”
So, is Arg an old-old-school Catholic then?
Woke up the other day and my gf was sleeping on the couch …. Seems im snoring too much when im real tired lol Anyway what you had planned for banked punishment ? I mean dont wait too long these things lose value overtime 😀
Remember of inflation and bankers. Your savings won’t be enough soon. Rather use them now.
When I punish myself I sleep on the floor. Soft than the couch.
That may just be the stupidest brilliant idea ever.
