My wife will sometimes be in the mood where she throws out small bursts of compliance tests in a short amount of time, but the caveat being that I was already about to fucking do exactly what she says.
A perfect example is a supermarket trip. Pull in to the pretty full car park, spot a space and drive towards it to park. She pipes up with "Park over there". Unloading the kids, she says "Get the buggy" which I'm obviously going to do. Walk towards the trollies and receive "Get a trolley". Sigh. You see where I'm going with this?
Right now I recognise the tests and STFU, but there has to be a better way. Can't say "I'm getting the fucking trolley" as that's butthurt. Can't say "Yes dear" - immediate fail. Could be sarcastic: "no, let's just carry the groceries today", but I want to be playful and this will likely come across as butthurt. Looking for inspiration. How would you handle this?
Update: Loads of great suggestions here, thanks. More importantly I've learned I need to go get my balls back. I'm taking action.
