    It's a joke that everyone makes at one point or another "I better not buy this bass or I'll be sleeping on the couch" yadda yadda yadda. Has this actually ever happened to you? I've slept on the couch when either my wife or I was sick or something, but she's never kicked me out of the bedroom.

    I'm just wondering if this is as common a thing as everyone makes it sound like.

    I have forced my wife to sleep on the couch after I ate a sack of gutbusters from White Castle.

    "You're on the couch tonight, buddy!"

    "You mean next to the TV and the fridge?"

    If she's that mad, she doesn't want to sleep in the same bed, SHE can go to the couch! :)

    I'm sure if the Qintar were married his mad hershey squirts would drive the wife to the couch.

    Me? Never.

    I occassionally "pass out" on the couch.

    which would bring up another question............

    When you find a full beer in the morning next to the couch, do you pour it down the drain? Or do you put it in the fridge?

    Speaking as someone who is not married (yet), I can safely say that if my wife thinks I'm sleeping on the couch because she's mad at me, she's got another thing coming!



    Fast-forward five years in the future at 11:30 PM: "Hey guys, I'm posting on my laptop from the couch again. Looks like I forgot our anniversary this time. I've managed to get the cushions just the way I like them, though."

    My wife and I gave up meat for Lent, and we've been eating alot of Indian food lately. Unfortunately, my wife is the one forcing me into the spare bedroom.

    I sleep with the covers tucked in tight so none of the fumes escape to the outside. The last time something sneaked out, I was in the spare bedroom waiting for it to wear off. Half hour later, remnants still existed. I say to my wife, "how can something that brings me such joy also bring such pain! "

    My wife is no longer allowed to have Simla Mirch Masala again! :spit:

    I sleep better on the couch than I do in bed (unless some sort or physical exertion has worn me out...:p ) So occasionally I'll sleep on the couch so that both myself (out of comfort) and my wife ( out of not being disturbed by my watching TV till 3AM and tossing and turning the rest of the time) get a good nights sleep. We have never slept apart out of anger.

    So you know I voted Carrots.
     
  16. Also known as the dutch oven. This can cause mass destruction if someone rolls over.

    What Cheezewiz said. The person that's really mad storms off and sleeps on the couch. Hasn't happened in years though.

    I sleep with the covers tucked in under my armpits to prevent the dutch oven. She has learned too well from me.:rollno:

    Let the sun not set with you in a provoked state.

    That's been working for me for years.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    I've voluntarily slept on the couch because my wife tossed and turned too much, or because my tossing and turning were keeping her awake. I've also slept on the floor at the foot of the bed for the same reason. We've never had a fight so bad that we weren't willing to sleep in the same bed together, though, and God willing, we won't.
