If you’ve ever been involved in a He Said/She Said type of argument with your significant other (or anyone, for that matter) you’re probably wishing you had one of these:
Created by the staff at YourTango, a relationship media company, the SpatSolver is the perfect joke gift for the sanctimonious lecturer or argument score keeper in your life. If only it were real.
“SpatSolver was a YourTango group effort,” said Sarah Harrison, senior editor at YourTango.com in an email. “We wanted to create a video that would allow us to expose a relationship truth through satire.”
The truth being that people often suck at communication. The product may not be real, but the problem of silly arguments over nothing or arguments that miss the point definitely is.
And don’t try to make one on your own.
“In reality SpatSolver would probably be harmful to a relationship–arguments can be productive if you listen to the other person and empathize with what they’re saying,” explains harrison. “SpatSolver encourages the opposite–but it feels good to be right, which is why the product is so appealing.”
