A Rainy Day

What do you do when you are being genuinely nice and supportive to someone by telling them how thankful you are for their attempts to settle things down between you after a series of not-so-good emotional outbursts, then you make a random observation that unintentionally upsets them to the point that they treat you like dirt and when you are told that you are the one that treats them like dirt?
Do you lock yourself in a room and have a think? Do you carry on the conversation with them and point out that you didn't mean to upset them? Do you just dismiss the whole thing and consider it a freak incident? Do you then believe that you have done something wrong and need to apologise? Do you go cold and wait for them to apologise? Do you become more observant and conscious about what you say in the future? Do you dare ask for the reason why that little observation was classified as you treating them like dirt?
Take that incident and multiply the number of repeats by about 10 per week over the course of a number of years. So, with that package in mind, what would you do?
