Mean Mean Woman
 
I have to take a break from LAYING TILE to write this and get it off my chest. I have a very very cruel gal. My friends, parents and siblings would never agree with me, they think she is a saint. In fact I shudder at the thought of ever being put in a situation where they would be forced to save only one of us.

They just don't know her like I do. This latest episode started yesterday when I announced that we were going to go over where the Scamp is stored and start on our winter renovations. I've been judiciously gathering parts and information and I'm all excited to get going. Plus, it is a 3 day weekend here in Nevada (Nevada Day) and would have been the perfect opportunity to start dismantling the rig. No sooner did I start to mention this when DEMONS literally oozed out of her face. I can't really explain it but the room temperature instantly dropped 40 degrees. And then she said in her self righteously quaint little voice "What about the tile?"

The TILE? The fact that she said it wasn't so bad as the inference that she actually expected me to live up to my promise that I'd get right to it when the game was over, 2 weeks ago. I mean c'mon I did cut out a large chunk of the carpet in the dining room after I'd moved half the furniture into the living room and the other half into the kitchen. It is totally out of the way. We don't even cook much and you barely even have to tilt to see the TV. I swear a truly nice person would never question their significant others priorities under such circumstances.

Oh well, anyhow I'd better get back to my, TILE, or she'll keep me from my important projects for who knows how long. She already has one of those giddy little smirks that women get. Thanks for letting me rant!:omy

I understand completely, Steve. Those women folk sure have messed up priorities. My "Honey Do" list is nothing like the one I have planned out for myself.

For me it is the constant reminding - every 6 months! I said I'll get around to it and I will. :loltu

"For me it is the constant reminding - every 6 months! I said I'll get around to it and I will."

I totally know what you're talking about. We've only been discussing this tile for 3 years. You'd have thought it had been a long time or something.

My gal almost never says anything (of course my sister would say that if I ever shut up for a second she might have a chance.). She does however have ultra powerful subliminal abilities to get her points across. I know better but sometimes I swear I've been fitted with a shock collar.

Tell her that it is a very good thing that you never got around to installing that tile, because the tile she picked is pretty outdated. You should give her time to pick out something more up to date, and then plan your installation for after that. :loltu

My husband always tell me my priorities are never straight.

Steve Hammel 10-26-2012 02:08 PM

"after 30 years of nagging,,,i just gave up and went ahead and finished that second bathroom."

I know what you're talking about. I outlasted the kids growing up and moving out and now she feels we need one for company and the grand kids staying over. I say stop inviting em over, but nobody ever listens to me!

You guys are making me appreciate my non-nagging wife even more. Yup I got a good one.

Steve Hammel 10-26-2012 07:15 PM

Well I'm not saying she's not a good one. Especially within earshot, LOL! It's that psychic ability to make me feel guilty.

Andrew Gibbens 10-27-2012 06:02 AM

You guys are just using the wrong words. The Spanish maana gives the right impression of not necessarily tomorrow, exactly, but sometime soon, OK?

But when working in Greece, I learnt their equivalent word (sadly now forgotten) which is even better: it means definitely not tomorrow, not even next week, but sometime, absolutely for sure, would I lie to you?
