"I can't even talk to you! You are so stupid"!
"Don't know about stupid, but I think you have a thing or two to learn about having normal conversation without yelling or cursing" (very calmly).
Did I do good?
With my wife and I our conversations do start out like that a lot of times and I try really really hard to show restrain, but then after like 15 minutes of it my head finally pops off and it then turns into an all out shouting and cursing match back and forth! And the things we yell at each other would make an entire biker bar blush!
