My wife and I were out running errands Saturday. She made several comments over the course of the afternoon that just carried a disrespectful tone to them. On the surface, they would be considered “helpful suggestions” but with the way she said them, it was clearly meant to be degrading/disrespectful. I let the first couple of comments like that slide, not thinking anything of them, but the last one was overt enough that I turned to her and told her she needs to watch her disrespectful tone. She tried to backpedal and say she “didn’t mean it like that”, but I reminded her that she’s made several disrespectful comments over the last couple of hours in that way and that I wasn’t going to be talked to that way. Was this the appropriate way to handle that, or was there a more tactful way to approach it?
