Earlier this evening my boyfriend and I were making dinner together, fish tacos :-) and of course it was a dish I have never made. He asked me to cut the fish, which I did, but made a stupid silly mistake and placed the fish into the batter( before it was mixed). He flew off the handle and said...F*%#! Tracey! Why did you do that!? It wasn't ready! You never listen! Did I tell you to throw the fish in there!? I got so upset that I left the kitchen and began crying. I wanted to tell him off so badly, but me being a girl, my feelings got hurt then felt useless after that. Then he got even angrier and said...Great, now your crying! When your done, come back in the kitchen if you want to learn how to make this. Can't you cook anything at all!? Makes me sick on how some people cannot cook anymore! Anyway, is that normal for a guy to flip out over something so small? I am still not over it and I feel like not wanting to speak to him again.

I probably would have reacted like this:
"No! F***!" with a raised voice and then proceeded calmly from there.
"It wasn't ready yet." *smile* "Don't worry about it. It's completely ruined, but since I'm superman I can fix it." *kiss*
Basically, yes, when we are focusing on a process and something goes wrong we do mentally flip out like that initially. The problem for him is that he needs to learn how to STOP flipping out and try to fix the situation. He could have flipped this whole thing around and made it a bonding experience instead of a damaging one.
So your husband/boyfriend/whatever is an idiot.2
