“Did you remember to get the tickets for the charity gala at the country club for the week after next like I told you to?” Diana asked her husband.
“Ugh, I find those galas to be sickening,” Ronald replied. “I hate those ostentatious affairs with all of those pretentious phonies trying to outdo one another with their disingenuous shows of generosity. All they care about are the tax deductions.”
“You are so goddam lazy and selfish,” Diana said. “You know that I enjoy these charity events. And they raise a lot of money for worthy causes. I’m asking you to do this one thing for me and all you can do is turn it into a conflict. What is your problem, Ronald?”
