There’s no doubt about it, our world has been turned completely upside down.
Jobs, schools, and our home lives are completely different than they were just a couple of months ago.
And then there are all the marriages out there… which are now rife with mind games that spouses are playing on each other because, let’s face it, there’s not much else to do.
Hopefully, these folks will find a way to make it work until we’re allowed to live our normal lives again. This tweet kicked off a very funny thread that we think you’ll enjoy.
My wife and I play this fun game during quarantine, it's called "Why Are You Doing It That Way?" and there are no winners

But in the meantime, let the mind games begin!
1. A wonderful game!
You can play it during the day and at night!
A household favorite is also “Why is that ceiling fan on?”

2. I’ll take care of it…
The eye rolls are crucial, my friends.
We also have one called “Just give it to me, I’ll do it” Extra points when you throw in an eye roll.

3. He needs to get on top of that.
How hard can it really be, right?
We play, “who can put dishes in the dishwasher”? So far me one zillion times; husband zero!

4. This could get very ugly in a hurry.
But it might be fun?
We just go around opening or closing windows and doors – correcting the other persons incorrect portal positioning decision.

5. Don’t breathe my air!
This is when you know things are really going downhill.
We prefer to play the game “Why Are You Breathing Like That?”

6. Not the most fun you’ve ever had in your life, huh?
Are you even listening?
Our favorite is, “I told you about this at great length already. Do you ever listen to me?” It’s a one way game and it isn’t fun.

7. This question will take you down a dark road.
No winners here, either.
My wife and I have been playing “why did You say it in that tone?” And there are also no winners.

8. This is now your life.
Better get that divorce lawyer on the horn.
We have two fun games right now. “Can you do the dishes this time?”
“I work until 3…can you maybe pick a different time to watch hillbillies digging holes (literally) on YouTube so I can upload my lesson plan demos?!”
This is my life now. pic.twitter.com/IuKxFuKiWm

9. A standoff like an old Western movie.
Choose your spot wisely.
Our game is “Can you come look at this thing?” and then it’s a standoff.
— Jane McManus (@janesports) April 5, 2020
10. This is a real power struggle.
The solution: just never wear pants.
Our favorite game starts when a package is left outside. It’s called “But you have pants on.”
— Quince Mountain (@QuinceMountain) April 5, 2020
11. Choosing not to participate.
Over and over and over again…
My partner is playing a game with me (I am not participating) called “what is this doing here.”
— Duncan J at Home❄ (@Duncan2Toes) April 5, 2020
12. Ahhh, the classic “light” game.
This one is a winner, for sure!
My husband and I play this fun game called, “Please Turn That Light Back On” and it gets real dark.

Those are pretty hilarious, if I do say so myself.
How are you holding up?
What’s the situation like in your household? Are you and your spouse at each others’ throats?
