In two hundred words – does this sound familiar?

“You always do that! It’s so annoying!”

“Do what?”

“When I ask you if you want some crisps from the shop, you say no, and then you eat half mine!”

“Well, sorreeee! What do you mean by always? When was the last time I did it?”

“Last week, actually. When we were coming back from the supermarket.”

“I did not! Actually.”

“You did. I asked you if you wanted Doritos, you said no. Then you nicked half mine in the car. I only got a few!”

“I did not!”

“You’ve just said that. And you did.”

“You are so anal. I didn’t realise that having a few of your crisps was such a sin! Have you been counting how many I eat each time?”

“I am not anal! I was just saying, that’s all. And no I haven’t been counting but now you mention it, what a good idea!”

“Well, do you think that you could not ‘just say’ in future?”

“Yes, if we can agree that the next time you say that you don’t want any crisps when I ask you, that you do not then ask me for some of mine.”

“Are you still going on about that?”

    I know … the “want” comes by seeing someone else eat 🙂
