We don't know what was before this, but she's a raging lunatic.

A bit, he did agitate it a bit. But holy hell, that women was ****ing nuts.
I can't imagine. My wife is an amazing woman, very 'still waters run deep.' I think I'd go into shock if she ever behaved like that.

Then I'd take her to the doctor, because obviously something has gone terribly wrong.

She wouldn't have to act like that if she was hot.

I've seen children at grocery stores act like that and their parents chuckle just like the husband does here because, well, what else can they do?

My mom had a friend back in the day whose six year-old attempted a meltdown. Patti walked her out of there on her tippy-toes, by her ponytail. I can't see her getting away with that these days, but that story always cracked me up.

she needs help, and he shouldn't have put it on the internet.

The phrase "passive aggressive" is this thing some women like to throw on men, when really it means he told his side calmly but also did tell his side.

Thus, "passive" meant he wasn't raging and "aggressive" means he didn't just agree to whatever she said and wanted.

Yeah, I believe he did that to counter her social media posts painting him as the one around the bend. It's quite clear he's checked out of the marriage and is done with this crap.

My wife and I are having a disagreement on this video.

http://gawker.com/man-records-final-fight-with-soon-to-be-ex-wife-upload-868449134

She says he was being passive-aggressive, I say the wife in the video would have melted regardless, because she didn't get her way.

What do you all think.
She cried, shrieked, and screamed like she was a 10 year old - and he's done something wrong?

None of my kids behave as immaturely as her. She has serious issues.

"I need to get the tires rotated"
"Okay - and then we can go to the lake?"
"Sure babe"
"Love ya" - kiss.
"Love you too"

That's me and my husband, really - :shrug:

This does remind me - I really DO need to get MY tires rotated. LOL I'll take it in next week.

Did he handle it the absolutely best way possible? Probably not. Did he cause her to act like a lunatic? Nope. Most likely if she would have responded to him like an adult the conversation would have stayed a conversation and not a dramatic argument. But regardless of how he responded she was going to go crazy. Can't blame the guy for that.

Just have to say, in every adult relationship I've been in, getting your tires rotated had nothing whatsoever to do with my vehicle. :mrgreen:

i can at least understand that. i hate being yelled at, and would probably walk if it happened too much. i had a couple years of it at the end of my most recent relationship, and it shut off my ability to see her in a positive light. she never flipped out quite as badly as the woman in the video, though.

She's a smoker. That's par for the course.

Women who smoke have mental balance issues, by and large.

Yeah, I was married to one such except she did wig out with regularity. I stayed and protected my daughter from the crazy and tried to protect myself as well, though not as much a priority. She finally left to "grow up", found another fellow who seemingly liked the crazy and I haven't seen her since.

On another note - why was she in the car with him, under the impression she was going to the lake? That's what my wife wants to know. She's dressed like she's going to the beach, she apparently thinks she is bound for the beach. It looks like he set her up.

Here in Arkansas everyone looks like that even if they're going to church. :D Means nothing - it's summer time. It's hot.

But let's pretend he did and was pulling a prank to get a reaction - I have no doubt that she acts like that no matter what he does. A brain-melting freak out anytime she doesn't get what she wants? An emotionally unstable alcoholic - imagine that.

No reason to behave like that - none at all.

He's not being passive aggressive. He was being an adult. Bitch is cray.
