My Problem (Pt. 1)

I have a problem, I don't like it when people try to control or manipulate me.  I hated it when my parents did it when I was a kid and I really hate it now that I'm an adult and my wife tries to flex.  I also have an immense dislike for my wife's immature bullshit that she pulls in moments of anger. 

I am a nice, reasonable guy who treats his wife well and listens to her.  I feel that if we have a problem then she should sit down and discuss it with me and we can come to some sort of agreement.  The agreement may be that WifeRat has to take her complaint and shove it up her ass, but I would have given her beef a fair hearing.  Likewise, sometimes the agreement will be that I will eat one of those monstrous shit sandwiches that my wife is so fond of serving up; I won't like it, but that's part of life. 

My wife says that it's unacceptable that I get angry and start yelling, I have pumped my brakes and almost never yell any more.  So I feel like I don't care how mad she is, if I'm not allowed to punch walls, throw shit around, and say crazy shit; I think it's only fair that she has to control herself the same way I do.  Naturally, my wife doesn't see it that way; she still gets pissed and starts swearing a blue streak in front of BabyRat at the drop of a hat and refuses to stop.  I would like to include her annoying penchant for indulging in hysterical sobbing during arguments too, but that's never going to happen so I had to let that one go.
