I don’t understand what’s wrong, we were getting along just fine yesterday. What did I do wrong? I can’t apologize if I don’t know what is upsetting you. If we are going to make this relationship work we need to start communicating better.
I don’t want us to start drifting apart. We’re partners we need to stick together.
Oh you know exactly what’s wrong. There’s no point in trying to deny it. So far in this relationship all I’ve done is give give give, and all you’ve done is take take take. I gave you the best cookies of my life so far and you couldn’t give me one measly little milk carton in return!
Is that what you are upset about? Me taking the last carton of chocolate milk in the cafeteria? Well I’m sorry but the fact is you brought twelve cookies to school so you had plenty to share. There was only one carton left, if there had been two I would have shared one with you.
I’m sorry Ethan but I just feel like you care more about food than you do about me. I don’t think that this partnership is good idea anymore.
Can’t we try to work this out? Think about our homework assignments what will happen to them?
We’ll just have to take turns, I’ll take care of them Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and you can have them Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
