So, a few weeks back, my wife says, I'd like to buy this (showing me a picture of a desk like thing) for the entryway so that you can put your stuff in it so I can have my kitchen back (we have a cozy on a counter in the kitchen and the mail is next to it, which takes up a lot of that counter). I say, I don't think we really need it, but do what you want. So she buys it and it gets here two days ago. I help her put it together and put it in its place. Yesterday I move the cozy from the kitchen to the entryway and put my stuff on top of the cozy. My wife gets all upset because I am not using the drawers and am instead using the cozy on the top of table. I say, I don't like using drawers for my stuff, because things gets scratched, squished, lost, etc. and was always going to just the cozy on top. She says, its ugly, visible from the door, etc. and if I would have known you weren't going to use the drawers wouldn't have bought it. I say well I guess you shouldn't have.
Now don't get me wrong, I know I got caught up a bit, but neither of us raised voices or anything, but my wife is still all irritated at me today. I know I'm not going to use the drawers for my wallet, phone, watch, keys, etc., but at the same time would like to smooth this little tiff over, I just have no idea how to do it. I mean I am after all using the thing I didn't want to buy to begin with, I am just not using it correctly in my wife's eyes. I am at a loss as to what to do in this particular case, any advice would be welcome.
