Story #50 - Breaking stuff again

"Goddammit. You broke a glass again. Yesterday some plates. Today a few of these. Who knows what tomorrow."
"Why are you so upset?"
"Because you broke them."
"And? It's an inanimate object. It doesn't scream, it doesn't yell."
"True, but it costs money."
"They're bloody cheap. Nobody really cares what you eat on, you know. Get over it. It won't kill you if three of them are cracked or smashed. Stop vesting your emotions in crap like this. They're not your friends..."
"I gave them names though."
"God... Look, it happened, alright? It slipped. I'm sorry. I'll buy you a new set. You happy?"
"Not really."
"What'll it take to make you happy?"
"Hmm...probably nothing."
"That's your choice, isn't it?"
"I guess so."
"When will you know so?"
"No idea."
