How To Be a Good Loser

Updated on August 4, 2012

“You cannot do that, its cheating!” Cried my whiny husband. He is not used to losing. Not one game, not one little round. He wins every game we play. “If you're gonna play like that, we can end the game right now.” “Get over it! Its a game you cry baby, go cry to your momma and tell her all about it.” Is it men that do not like to win or just my husband?

Competitive? Yes, I am. But, somehow he always wins. For when I eventually win I made a few basic instructions for him to follow!

Shut Your Mouth

When I finally win; let me scream and shout like I do when I win a small round of Ratuki. Do not take the “Bam! Yeah that just happened” and the “Yeah that is right, you were to slow,now you can eat it” personally. I am simply happy at the moment. Happy that I can still win if I were just a wee bit faster all the time and not just every once in awhile.

Make Better Comebacks

Instead of whining like a baby, say something like “I let you win” or “I thought you should have that one.” Or how about you shut your mouth and take it.

Pull Up Your Pull-Ups

Eventually you are going to lose. Yes, to me; your wife. Whether it is in an argument or a game you will one day lose. So go get your big boys, its going to be a long ride buddy.

Do Not Go To Bed Mad

I know it is hard to lose. Trust me I lose at almost everything when it comes to you. Remember it is a game. We can play when ever we like. If I win tonight, you will probably win next time. Just remember we are here tonight, we may not be tomorrow. It was a game. Lets put it away, let me do my victory dance and shout to the world as loud as I can. You will get through it.
