Since the start of Season 6 of the Real Housewives of New York, we haven't gotten to see much of newbie Kristen Taekman's husband, Josh. At first it seemed that was because we were just getting to know Kristen as she was getting her bearings among the solidified RHONY veterans, but in recent episodes, the real reason has become all too clear: He doesn't want to be around.
On Tuesday night, we were privy to the tumultuous relationship between the pair. Which brings to mind a few key points: Is coming home to eat dinner with your family really such an imposition? Instead of berating your wife when she asks why you're a half hour late coming home, perhaps you should just say you're sorry. Rather than mock her for the cooking you insisted she do, maybe you should help her when she's clearly overwhelmed and upset. Listen, I'm no marriage expert, but common decency is never out of style, right?
This failed dinner date made me think: If Josh was that ungrateful for his "hot meal on the table," perhaps someone else would've appreciated it more. And by "someone else," I mean even hardened criminals and tyrants would've been more pleasant about it. And I'm also fairly certain that Kristen shared that sentiment. During the meal, it looked like she wished she cooked it for just about anybody else in the entire world.
So, here's a list of theoretical people that Kristen probably would rather have made dinner for than Josh:
1. People who don't change the toilet paper roll.
AKA, Satan's minions.
2. Bad texters.
Yeah, you know who you are. Stop it.
3. People who deliberately take up two seats on the Subway.
4. People who walk their kids on leashes.
So, so, wrong.
5. People who blow up your feed with pictures of their boyfriends/girlfriends on Instagram.
6. Kanye West.
7. Morning people.
Why are you smiling?!
8. People who don't like cheese.
It's just weird, okay? Cheese is delicious.
9. People who tell you you look tired.
Maybe we're tired of YOU.
10. The person who reminded your teacher that there was homework.
Wherever you are, you demon, I hope you're happy with yourself and what you've done.
