Nice lesson.

The last time I disagreed with someone was my sister, but now we agree!
Our problem was that last night we decided we were going to go jog. So, she said that the best time to go out was at night, but she did not convince me of her idea, because I agree that it is better to jog in the afternoons. To sum up, we select the night for the run.

I often disagree with my husband or my son about any topic such as food, trips, gardening etc... I think I am right and the are convinced they are right as well... so in the end we try to find a good solution for everyone.

Last time when I disagreed with somebody was when we are choosing a baby carriage, I preferred cheeper one but my wife more expensive. My wife won.

It depends on a lot of situation. I don't usually disagree with people, because my time is precious. Sometimes it is better to be silent.

Normally, I am calm person, and don't have any problem with people

On last week I think I was disagree with my friends opinion, she was upset with me and now I don't think we can be a friend again.

Yes, last time I disagree with my friend opinion while we discuss about our childhood friend. My childhood friend is a girl and she now addicted with the tinder activities. My friend Priya also support her addiction. That's why I disagree with her opinion.

Usually I don't convince with anybody but after successful interrogation I become.

Last week I disagreed with my housemate. We are friends and we are planning to rent a place just for the two of us. She prefers a house and I prefer an apartment.
The main issue is she wants to have a small garden, and I am ok finding a park nearby. We finally agreed on renting a small house with a patio, close to the park we both enjoy going for a run.
