					Finding A Coffee Table Is Harder Than A Coffee Maker
Choosing the right glass coffee table with my wife was more difficult
than agreeing on the best coffee maker. At least we both feel
passionately picking out from the best coffee machines, but this passion
made us divisive when it came to finding a good table to rest our coffee
on. We are both professionals and like getting things our own way.
Usually we give each other space so we don’t need to fight over silly
things, but when it comes to home décor, my wife wants things here way.
Unfortunately, I want things my way too and this caused quite a stir when
we tried to buy a table together.
We couldn’t agree on a single coffee table after we had visited over 10
stores. I have a modern sense of taste and want something that is clean
and simple that give the room a nice feel and is practical. My wife on
the other hand would prefer the coffee table of an Austrian nobleman. She
would probably have bought the gold-plated table with rhinestones and
lion’s feet if I had agreed to it. I wasn’t going to live in this kind of
Venetian palace and told her so, which she did not like. If she wants to
play decorator for the King of France, then fine, but not in my home!
We were coming close to a bad fight, but I stopped this from going too
far. We don’t forgive and forget quickly like some couples. Our fights
can go on for days and are most unpleasant. I didn’t want a stupid coffee
table to ruin my next week, so I went ahead with a compromise on the
coffee table. We chose one that we could both live with even though
neither of us was really crazy about it. At least we got something to put
our coffee on and went home while still speaking to each other!

other sources for coffee maker tips.
