Do missionaries really argue?

Some readers have questioned the relationship between Elder Davis and Elder Pearson in By A Thread. Specifically, some have wondered if their arguments and animosity are realistic. After all, aren’t they supposed to be “the Lord’s messengers”?

They’re not any different than any two people who might not have much in common, yet they have to live as though married, never leaving each other’s presence except to use the bathroom. Even married couples would have a hard time keeping it together 24/7 in a similar situation!
