Wordfuse (Spousal Edition)









fiddlestickler (noun): fiddlesticks + stickler = a person lacking compromise who stubbornly insists on something, something really quite inconsequential, pointless or petty. Fiddlesticklers express impatience when others do not jump on the their bandwagons-to-nowhere. See wives; see husbands.

Should have used duct tape.

Sounds like a certain sister in law I have the misfortune to know.

She is beyond irrational.

Want to go all Ninja on her ass.

I'd like this better if it wasn't describing me more than the Hubster. Darn it.
