Using the word Spouse when wife or husband will work.
I understand using 'spouse' when you're making a generic statement. "Good communication with your spouse is a bedrock of a good marriage."
But when you're reviewing a coat on Amazon, "They sent a women's 1X instead of the one I ordered for my spouse, so it doesn't fit him." Bleh!  Husband! Husband!

When someone assumes "him" is referring to the husband and not the wife.  ;)

Why are you roping me in? Am I him, the husband, or the wife?

I always end up regretting my choice of checkout counter. It's always the unpredictable. Lesson to be learned is to never use the single lanes it's a single point of failure. Every single time  >:(

An indirect descendant is the offspring of the brother or sister of your parent, grandparent, etc. For example, you are a direct descendant of your mother, while your cousins are her indirect descendants. But you and all of your cousins are direct descendants of your common grandmother."

Because it's harder to get a tissue. You might not even be allowed to take one while they are davening

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
