  • Well, at least she isn't hot.
  • You just know all those guys are hoping for some nice-guys-get-me-wet action.
  • That's not as bad as the straight Victorian level shiat one of my friends pulled on me earlier this week. I've been trying to find a way to diplomatically tell her that she's a damn fool and if she keeps acting like this she's going to hate herself and her husband in a few years. And she's nearly 10 years older than the girl in the link.
  • "Saige?" Really?

    Okay. I'm game. What did she do?
  • Don't drink, don't smoke, what do you do?
  • Shostie: Okay. I'm game. What did she do?


    This is going to be a little vague. I have no reason to believe either her or her fiancee read this site, but no reason to risk it.

    There's an absurdly big Christmas store down here, and my decoration collection is pretty small. We were talking about decorating for Christmas (and I should note here this woman is Church of Christ and yes she's a good friend of mine) and I mentioned that I wanted to head over there later in the week and invited her along. That morning I get a text that basically says she can't go because it would be "disrespectful" to her fiance to be around another guy without apparently him around. I more or less said 'what in the fark are you talking about' and I got back that she wants to be some kind of perfect fiance and ever be alone with a guy in any situation.

    Like I said, I swear this text exchange came from farking Victorian England. And I'm pissed off because I read between the lines that she's afraid I'd try something which I think is incredibly insulting. I don't particularly want to tell her off on those terms, but I can't think of how to possibly say tactfully that you're insane and I'm incredibly insulted.
  • See what you've done, America? You put all of this effort into stopping bullying and now there's nobody to keep the "Modesty Club" and the "No-Cussing Club" in check. I hope you're happy.

    I'd consider her an ingredient in my sausage stuffing.

    Try going with something along the lines of "you're insane and I'm incredibly insulted".

    GAT_00: and yes she's a good friend of mine


    Oh. I can't help but wonder if it's not you she's worried about as much as herself. Foisting responsibility on a partner is a cheap and convenient way to shift blame, too?

    /drinking tonight not trying to cross any lines, guy
  • As silly and pointless as this effort is, I think it's pretty sad that people would resort to death threats and vandalism over something so trivial.

    Snarky Fark comments are still acceptable though.

    Let me guess: her fiance is thinking "God, when did she become so clingy? I wish GAT_00 would take her out once in a while just to give me a break."
  • She said she views immodest dress as showing cleavage, showing one's midriff or one's shoulders. Immodesty also includes shorts, dresses, pants and skirts that are too short or tight

    Temperatures are mostly in the 90s and low 100s in South Pasadena in September and sometimes part of October...I doubt that she'll convince most girls to stop wearing shorts and tank tops during the first few weeks of the school year.
  • I feel really terrible for both of these kids. Their dad wrote a book called "Raising a G Rated Kid in an X Rated World". I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he's an authoritarian douchebag who's doing his level best to raise one miniature version of himself, and one subserviant girl who will grow up to be an obedient wife to another version of himself.

    All I can really hope for these kids is that they get enough distance to think through these ideas themselves eventually. If they willfully choose to be like this as adults... well, more power to them I guess. But I tend to think these households are not actually very happy ones.

    Subtle innuendo.

    The brother is gay and can't out himself. Once these kids get out of the house and away from their parents it will be a disaster.

    I wondered if the dude wrote that but it sounded like her. By the way, in case anyone is wondering, yes I'm aware this whole thing is absurd and stupid and more than a little high school. I've just never tactfully learned how to try to tell someone they are ruining their own life by wrapping themselves up in a cocoon that 10 years from now they're going to hate themselves for.

    Elandriel: Oh. I can't help but wonder if it's not you she's worried about as much as herself.


    Hell if I know. There is some subtext that if I chose to read it that way that could mean that. It's also the most logical outcome that a woman who wants to throw herself at me is engaged because that's just my life.

    Anyway, didn't mean to jack a now green thread with incredibly mundane and stupid shiat.

    No matter what, you always make me feel worse of myself as a human being. Thank you for that.... and you would be correct

    I don't think that's an unreasonable response. A few years ago my wife caught flack from a coworker because she was met by a male friend for lunch. She was told it was 'inappropriate to be with another man unaccompanied' when she was engaged to me. She was so surprised by this confrontation that she couldn't really formulate an appropriate response beyond "I'm sorry, are you serious?"

    I think I was more pissed off than she was. It's insulting to everyone involved.

    Seriously, it implies a total lack of self-control and self-respect, that somehow you are now completely evaluated by how you are attached to someone else. Or that men apparently walk around constantly just throwing themselves at any woman. This isn't Victorian farking England.
  • She's not very modest in my book. You can still see her ankles, arms, hair, and eyes. Slut.

    I've never met the guy actually. I mean, sure I'd see if it went anywhere if she was single, but she's not so I don't give a fark.

    Funny thing is, I've had a variant of this situation happen to me before. I was in a few classes with a completely different woman years ago, and apparently because she talked about me a fair bit, her husband tried to come kill me. Like actually waiting outside my apartment in the parking lot, which luckily for me I didn't go anywhere that night. Found out like six months later when she told me. Kind of amusing actually, you know, once he wasn't trying to kill me. I've never provoked that kind of response in someone before. On the other hand, I was pissed off because I wasn't even farking her, and as I see it, if someone is going to kill me for banging his wife I'd like to actually be doing it, you know?

    So, anyone got any more Tales of Boring White People?

    Pretty much. It's all sorts of farked up, unless you're part of some kind of ultra-orthodox religious community. It's still farked up there, too, but at least it's normal in that frame of reference. I still occasionally have an idle thought about whether or not the judgemental coworker goes through life avoiding one-on-one situations with men, or whether it's okay again once you're married.
  • Does she not know where to find tee shirts and pants? While I feel that clothing should allow you to be functional in the given situation you will encounter. I don't think dressing a certain way means you are dressing like a hooker. Especially since guys are allowed to go in public shirtless without being considered hookers.
  • costermonger: unless you're part of some kind of ultra-orthodox religious community


    She's Church of Christ, so kinda.

    And before someone asks me how the hell I get along with someone like this, I'd like to add this is also the only person I know IRL who voted for Jill Stein with me.
