Why did my sister throw an epic fit when I told her that I'll wait 'til she doesn't have a cramp?
One time, over Thanksgiving break, she was in a bad mood and talked in a tone I didn't appreciate. Then I told her, "Fine! I'll wait 'til you don't have a cramp!"
Then she threw a real BIG fit about what I just said. I know that cramps cause bad moods, so when I said I'd wait 'til she no longer had one, she raised her voice quite a bit, tried kicking me, and said something like, "DON'T COME ANYWHERE NEAR ME!"
So what I said escalated her bad mood until that night, when she calmed down about it.
Why does she overreact about mentioning cramps?
(On the bright side though, I know not to mention it to any other woman now. Sometimes, if I'm not sure of what to say or not to a woman, I'll run it by my sister to make sure it's not the wrong thing to say. Who or what is a better testing ground than a sibling?)
PS: I'm sure this question could ruin my reputation, so I had to ask anonymously to protect myself. Sorry!
