Hey Ole Yeller…Who Are You Yelling At This Time? Survey Says…..Your Significant Other!
According to some new research, our significant other is the person we’re most likely to yell at. That said, believe it or not, only 31% said they’ve gotten into a shouting match with their s.o. in the past five years!! Ok, clearly I’m in the minority on this one!
Here now, for your utter enjoyment, is a list of the top ten people we’re most likely to fight with followed by a list of the reasons why. This will give you something to talk about tomorrow!
