the last time I'm desagree whit someone was when I did an university's work whit a friend. Was difficult to agree.

The disagreement that I had with my friend was about which movies to watch. She wanted to see love movie and I wanted action film. We finally chose to watch a humorous one.

The last time I disagreed with someone was before the pandemic, in 2019, I was talking to my comrade, and then we disagreed our ideas about a project, and I rejected him. It was an awful situation, but finally the problem was solved

I am flexible and negotiable one. I don't think I am always right.
when I disagree with someone, I pointed out her what are the reasons. On the same time, we tried to find out the best solutions of the problem with win-win method.
Many thanks for other collogues' interesting comment.

Yesterday I disagreed with some calls mates on how to make an online campaign and how we target the customers but everyone has a different idea about it, finally we agreed on putting two options together.

Two days ago, I disagreed with my friend about her study. Since she started her part-time job, she has become failing in schoolwork. It’s also the reason of my disagreement. At that time, I gave her some advices to hope she realizes which is more important. But I don’t know how she think after hearing my sincerely spoken, because she seems to wanna earn money more. No matter how we still young, i think we should focus on our studying first.

It always happens. There are many suggestions or opinions at work we agree with some of them and disagree with the rest.

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.
