I know it's an unusual forum topic but it's not really about the butter. We leave our butter on the counter and it tends to get too hard to spread. A quick pop on the microwave and it softens. My DH totally melts it every time. I know this seems petty but what the neck I don't care to try and spread melted butter. Why does he not see and remember that it only takes 6 seconds to soften it not one minute. And it's not really about the butter but about my need to be considered as to what I like and his denial in not being able to soften butter without a making a melted mess. I sound petty and selfish...I am just really tired of a million little things such as melted butter.
If his reaction over the whole thing were kindness and oh I'm sorry honey I forgot it would be different. Instead he has a big screaming swearing fit.
