    She actually started crying and sobbing that I should be so insensitive.
    I should have pulled over and made her walk.
    You insensitive brute.
    I think I'd start to give her more space, if I were you, if you know what I mean.
    Maybe get together once a year or so.

    After that episode, and a couple more like it, she got the old heave ho.
    Life is too short to put up with crap like that.
    It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it.

    There were a couple of matching Mercedes around town with vanity plates that never made much sense to me until one day I saw them parked side by side at home in the same driveway. His and hers Mercedes!..... One was TABA and the other was SLOTB

    I would suggest the proper course of action in this instance is the immediate re-evaluation of a relationship that is (a) apparently based on Party A being taken advantage of by Party B, and (b) wherein Party B affects this advantage by emotional displays, (c) thereby playing on the sympathies and hormonal drives exhibited by all such Parties A known to mankind.

    Given the subsequent evaluation of said relationship, and a subsequent determination that Party B is in fact guilty of the suspected behavior, then application of one of the following remedies is recommended:

    1. Party A should immediately render Party B mute through judicious use of the immovable force (Duct Tape), whenever muffling is required. Advantages: Inexpensive. Easily Portable. Quick Applying. Disadvantages: Party B may resist. Solution: Employ help.

    2. Party A should consider permanent removal of Party B from Party A's immediate surroundings. Advantages: Don't have to carry Duct Tape anymore. Disadvantages: Party B may throw things. Solution: Duct Tape Party B's arms to prevent aerial projectiles while permanent dissolution announcement is being made.

    3. Party A, as a last resort, can hire outside assistance to permanently dissuade Party B from ever reassuming a position in proximity to Party A. Advantages: Someone else does the dirty work. Disadvantages: Party B may struggle. Solution: Duct Tape.

    By simply applying logic and a problem/solution process, we now see that Duct Tape seems to be the single, most obvious solution. In other words, if it moves and it shouldn't...Duct Tape.
