Primo insisted on discussing the change.
Primo: Why did you make this change?
Me: Because I don't like passive voice.
Primo: But I think it sounds better like this.
Me: Fine. Then don't make my change. I told you it was stylistic.
Primo: But I don't understand why you want to make this change.
Me: I told you. I don't like passive voice.
Primo: But your way emphasizes the person and not my mother.
Me: Whatever. I don't care. Do it your way.
Primo: But why don't you like my way?
Me: I told you! I don't like passive voice. It doesn't matter what I think. You get to decide. It's about you. If you don't like my change, then don't make it.
Primo: No! We have to discuss this. I have to understand.
Me: What part of "I don't like passive voice" don't you get?
Primo: Why don't you like it?
Me: Why does it matter? Do it your way!
Primo: It matters. I want to understand why.
Me: Is there anything I could say that would change your mind?
Primo: Maybe. I think we need to come to an agreement on this.
Me: No! We don't! If you don't like it my way, then don't do it my way! I don't care! We don't have to agree!
Primo: I want to convince you.
Me: FINE! I'M CONVINCED! Could we move on, please?
