The Silent Treatment

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

A little mindless marriage humor I found surfing the web … and proof, ahem, the silent treatment doesn’t work.

“A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 a.m. for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, ‘Please wake me at 5:00 a.m.’ He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 a.m. and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, ‘It is 5:00 a.m. Wake up.’"

How about you? Do you and your husband ever play the silent game? Quiet wives want to know ...

I know the silent treatment doesn't work but for me sometimes I just need to withdraw and be silent or I may say something that I can't take back. For me, silence is a way of cooling off and to think about what I want to say in a positive way.

KC Mom, I don't really consider that the silent treatment, I consider that smart!

Bwahaha! That's funny! Oh yes, but it doesn't ever last long. He always makes me laugh out of the silent treatment. :)

Heehee, too funny!
Hubby and I can definitely not pull off the silent treatment, we like to talk way too much for that. And we hate being upset so we try to work it out, if temper is flying its solo time for a while then we try again.

No silent treatment for me! Right wrong or indifferent I speak my mind. I need to hash it out or I won't be able sleep. If it was up to my husband I know he's prefer if I gave him the silent treatment...

Um, my name is "The ChatterBox"... just sayin'! That was funny! I mean seriously, what did he expect, right? LOL!

Everytime I read this one I crack up! The silent treatment certainly does NOT work LOL.... I've tried it at the beginning of the marriage and found out that it not only doesn't work but it's ineffective. He likes it when I'm quiet ... so now I just tell him like it IS!
Thanks for that chuckle!

I used to partake in the silent treatment. I was an expert at it. The longest I could hold out was two weeks. As we all know it doesn't accomplish anything except to drive a wider wedge in between you and your spouse. I agree with KC Mom in that silence should be used as a way to cool off.

I am guilty of using the silent treatment in my marriage. When I'm upset, I just need to withdraw - probably because I witnessed my mom do it with my dad as I was growing up. But usually after a few days I don't even remember why I'm giving him the silent treatment. My husband prefers the old "never go to bed angry" cliche. I agree, but we've only been married six months. Check back in a year lol!

LOL! The silent treatment doesn't work well for us, because one of us will eventually laugh at the other one!

Hugs and Mocha,

OMG, that was too funny! Sounds like something I'd do though. LOL!!!

I'm engaged and not married yet but I don't see the silent treatment working, because we have a knack for making each other laugh. My parent's couldn't do it either.

I am totally agree with KC coz for me too silent treatment is not actually a fight but a way to stop next fight.Though it hurts and painfull too but one thing i know you shout or remain silent these husbands neither they listen nor they understand so no use of any kinda treatment.
