I HATE it when people say "always" or "never" when it's sometimes...

I swear I'm going to write that man a list. If I get an email, or a phone call, or find out something that I think Tony would want to know about, I'm going to just write it down, and then give him the list when I get home. Today while driving home, I got an email saying Cary had been moved to varsity wrestling. That wasn't on my mind when I got home, so I told him I needed to take Cary out for a shirt and jacket for his band concert. Then... The ex called to talk about medical insurance. While we were on the phone, I mentioned the email about varsity. Soon as I get off the phone, Tony says that next time I should tell him before I tell the ex. I say sorry, didn't do it on purpose. He says "you always do that". Well I don't ALWAYS. I Sometimes. If you're going to make a point that something annoys you, don't say always when it isn't always. It isn't true, and it isn't on purpose like I'm excluding you,, so why do it?

Absolutes like "always" and "never" are not valid, and if they were, why would he still be with you, since you persist in excluding him on purpose? It is his way of saying his is ticked off but it does not promote discussion of the situation, it only aggravates you.

Sometimes once is "always" enough. I understand your point on this as it can be hurtful towards you for him to insinuate you do something all the time, but I think his feelings were hurt that you told the ex about varsity first and he just reacted without thinking.
