Marriage Poll #12

You see it coming a mile away. A loving greeting from your wife after a long day at work can quickly turn to a lecture on all the things you're doing wrong or not doing at all, from parenting to yardwork. You're never sure which approach will bring you the most grief, you know, "fight-or-flight."

Admittedly, a well intentioned and executed Callemonit in response to a narcissist's behavior will likely have very little positive impact.

Here's the scenario. Your husband comes home from work and says, "Honey, I'm not real hungry for dinner. The boss' wife surprised the whole office with a homemade lunch. He's a lucky guy. She's an awesome cook."
