  • Well Finish people don't necessarily fight, we more often negotiate.

  • I don't think things have any specific places where they should be put

  • but she seems to have like, 'this belongs there, and this belongs there'

  • Well I like to have a nice organized setting in my closet.

  • And I like piles.

  • We have to change into slippers when we enter the house.

  • Different slippers for the bathroom, the kitchen, the backyard.

  • My room, his room, everything is different

  • So, you always forget to change them.

  • Yeah, well, you know there is so many slippers I can't really do much.

  • It's very frustrating

  • When she is bothered by something, instead of saying what it is, she will stop responding

  • For, like, a while.

  • You won't hear from her for the next half hour, so I'm like 'what's going on'?

  • Oh yeah, I do that.

  • Leave the lights on in every room

  • Pain is insane because the light so expensive.

  • Even though I do try and turn them off, because, like, then environment is important

  • I forgot.

  • And he gets mad

  • And I'm upset in spanish

  • [speaking spanish]

  • What does that mean?

  • It looks like a theme park.

  • Okay, because all the lights are on?

  • Yeah, exactly.

  • You know we go out to some social venues.

  • And I'm just trying to keep things easy, lighthearted.

  • And she'll bring up politics

  • She's yapping away about this and that

  • And, you know, people get uncomortable

  • I get passionate about it

  • okay

  • So I'm dominican, she's Mexican

  • Dominican people don't really eat spicy food

  • It's mostly savory

  • She want's to cook me Dominican food, which is cute. But you don't put jalapeños stuffed into plantains.

  • No it's flavorful. The word is flavorful.

  • That's the one you're looking for.

  • Like, we have this traditional food

  • Called [Finish] and her mom makes it.

  • He doesn't like fish, but it has a lot of fish inside.

  • My mother loves to make it.

  • And I would like to please her, and you should eat it too.

  • I sometimes wish that you could just say your mom, that.

  • Can you make nicer [Finish]

  • You can't say that to my mother.

  • Usually I call her and say [Chinese]

  • Which means 'we leave at five'.

  • And then she always gets ready at five, right?

  • No.

  • Stuff is rotting in our fridge

  • And I'm like 'I'm going to the store'.

  • I'm going to fill it up, can you get everything out?

  • You're like 'yeah', you just like, miss everything.

  • Sometimes I'm going to eat those leftovers.

  • No, not if they're a few days old. They're probably band and have bacteria on them.

  • I have a strong stomach

  • It doesn't matter to her if the movie already started.

  • She's like, 'it's just ten minutes late, we'll go in'. And I just hate it.

  • I just can't watch a movie after it starts.

  • But she's okay with it.

  • I'm like, no, I can't do that.

  • So true.

  • Okay, so there's different paper towels that we got.

  • When it comes to paper towels I'm a man of efficiency.

  • You apply it to the mess, and then you take one more sheet until you have

  • the necessary amount.

  • Right? You don't just grab half a roll and just start dabbing it aimlessly.

  • You always know where Miska has been

  • You can follow the pile of clothes, the pile of paper.

  • Yeah, because I'm some looser creative.

  • Every night he gets up in this corner, he takes off his underwear, his socks

  • and he goes to bed

  • And it piles up

  • And whenever I'm trying to walk through that floor, it's there.

  • Underwear at corners of the room.

  • [Speaking Chinese]

  • Why are you saying that, like, in front of a camera?

  • When we're fighting, because when I get angry I get like, really, really angry and really in it.

  • And he's way more chill.

  • I'll be really angry and he'll try and like, touch my butt.

  • Or like, do a little pat, and I

  • Explode

  • No, no, no

  • No, no, no

  • You cannot touch this right now.

  • Respect the anger.

  • You know, everyone's got their issues

  • But at the end of the day it's just background noise.

  • If she's your main, she's your main.

  • And that's it.

Well Finish people don't necessarily fight, we more often negotiate.
