“Gavin, sometimes I just want to punch you in the throat!”
These were the words that Mrs W relayed to me just the other day.
She’s not normally like that, but on this occasion she was suffering from ‘spouse rage’.
Mrs W was all riled up because I’d left a light on or not shut a cupboard door properly in the kitchen.
Or maybe both?
I can’t say for sure.
I’d have offered her a hug, but not even a loving cuddle will cure spouse rage.
In fact, the opposite will occur.
The sufferer will recline and tell you to go away in no uncertain terms.
Best to give them some quiet time on their own and tip-toe out of the room whilst breathing REALLY quietly.
If you’ve lived for someone long enough you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Little things can start to urk.
You know what I’m talking about.
I get the odd bit of spouse rage too.
Although for me it’s not really a rage, but more of a gentle simmer.
Probably because Mrs W rarely urks me ;0

Unfortunately, your other half is unlikely to change their little urksome ways.
You can tell them a hundred times to turn the bathroom light off, but they’ll still do it.
So, your options.
1. Try a bit of “Woosah”[youtube id=”LTGdAGPDBpo” width=”600″ height=”350″]
2. Go and burn off some aggression (and chub) with a workout
So, here’s a 20 minute workout you can try if your other half is being supremely annoying today.
1. Press-ups for 4 rounds of 30 secs work/30 secs rest
