Is your wife capable of saying that she is sorry?



Rich Mazur

Or, "I was wrong".

Mine is not. Don't get me wrong. I love her dearly; we have been married 48 years. But if she screws up, admitting it and saying what men find so easy and routine seems to exceed her capability. Somehow, "I was wrong and I am sorry for hurting your feelings" seems incompatible with the female vocal cords.

In my specific case, maybe I am such a perfect husband that she never needed to say any of that and, thus, had no opportunity to practice. But, in all honesty, the probability of that being true seems way low.

There is rule among man in Serbia. Never admit anything to woman.

When you grow up you found out that woman have same rule for the man.

Serbia - the land of wisdom and mainstay of Slavia. :)

I was once given a book by a Serbian friend...

Serbia - book

... great insight into Serbian way of thinking/acting.

Old core, man. Old core. Primordial West. Dinaric genome.

And I suppose, no matter all tests of time, it left some traces in people here. Among else, some deeper resistance to manipulation.

I love her dearly; we have been married 48 years.

I met a guy that had been married 48 years just the other day.
He was launching his boat to go out fishing on the lake.
Half way through his boat launch a funeral procession came driving by and the guy stopped his boat launch, removed his hat and bowed.
After the funeral procession went by I told him how admirable he was for doing that.
His reply was, "It is the least I could have done, I was married to her for 48 years."

Thanks, Johnny. You made me laugh.

Speaking of women in general.

Why do they like those jeans with holes on the knees? It looks awful and the message is even worse.

I will try to walk through this gently not to banned: what would a woman have to do a lot of on her knees to wear a strong fabric like denim through?

Gardening? Or something totally different and incompatible with the metoo movement. Hmm...

it's only young girls that wear those jeans, and frankly , someone of your advanced age looking at young girls and thinking that, has definite issues.

oh gosh an old pervert..what a surprise.

Oh I have seen some women in their 40's even 50's that look sexy in those blue jeans.
Problem is that most people (both men and women) don't have the body to be wearing snug fitting jeans after 40.
The ones that I think are totally obscene are the women (over 30) who wear yoga pants in public with no underwear.
You can count the pimples on their ass and see their camel toe perfectly on the front.
Women that wear those may just as well hang a sign around their necks that say "come bang me".

Let me explain the difference between looking and seeing.

Never mind. I am too tired for another lecture.

Not to see them, I would have to walk backwards. Got it?

You are including the mid-aged women that wear the size to small yoga pants without underpants to Wal-mart correct ?

Once they are old enough to learn that thy are sitting on a gold mine you can hardly blame them.
Why give it away for free.
Especially if they are trying to put themselves thru college or raise a child by themselves.
There is even a song named, "Shake that Money Maker".
(Not that I condone such a thing)

Are you addressing me or god?

Polish comprehension strikes again. Quote the sentence where I wrote that I was looking, my dear Polish genius.

How do you know it looks awful if you weren't looking ?
Don't expect an apology Roz even though you were correct and father Rich was wrong.

my dear Polish genius.

1. i am not your dear
2. I am not Polish
3. I am not a genius just a normal English grad with a dislike of sloppy language and old perverts. HTH.

Rich Mazur

3.

You should demand a refund. As "a normal English grad" you should know the difference between seeing and looking.

Here is a clue from a guy who never took an English class in his entire life: it's the same as between hearing and listening?

Just in case it's still too complicated for you, the former term is passive and the latter is active. As in: I am now looking at my keyboard, and I am also seeing my phone. You have to admit that it was such a good example even a 5-year-old kid would understand.

The problem is that women want to be seen - and they spend all kinds of money and effort to achieve this objective - but pretend that they don't want to belookedat when they get close enough.

What I wrote in Post #6 is: It looks awful and the message is even worse. I did not write: I looked...

But, of course, with the reading comprehension being in short supply here, the fast and sloppy readers, paying little attention to words actually written, immediately jumped to the "old pervert is looking at the girls" routine.

So, for the last time, and very s l o w l y: "it looks" is not the same as "he is looking". "It looks" equals "it appears".

Did you finally get it? BTW, I like that rozumiemnic of yours. It fits.

If she could only figure out what "lt looks" means, I will submit her name to the Nobel Prize guys.

How can you say it "looks" awful if you weren't looking to come up with such a conclusion ?
You were obviously looking.
Case closed.

Rich Mazur
18 Jun 2018  #21

No, it's not. Pay attention.

In the sentence, "I saw a man; he looked tired", I did not stare at him. I just saw him because it was impossible not to. "He looked tired" does not mean he was looking, either. It means: he appeared tired.

You are obviously operating on three cylinders. "It looks" equals "it appears". For example, "it looks like rain"

Now, the case is closed. And so is the classroom.

I saw a man

If you saw him means you looked at him to see/saw him. lol

Pay attention.

How about you pay attention just for once because I am only going to explain your problem once.
First you have to understand that beer contains female hormones.
When your post become argumentative and stupid it is apparent that you are tossing a few back.
You should be concerned about these female hormones that you are consuming.
See hops contain "Phytoestrogens".
And by drinking enough beer like you do men become women.
Like you, they argue over nothing, refuse to apologize, gain weight, talk excessively without making sense, become over emotional and sit down while urinating.
This is why I quit drinking beer many years ago but apparently you have not been educated to these facts until now.

If you saw him means you looked at him to see/saw him. lol

You are a real challenge.

"While I was looking at my silver Lexus, I saw a red Corvette." This sentence is as normal as they get and it includes both looking and seeing. Got it?

One more time: In this sentence I was looking and seeing at same time. Seeing x while looking at y is called peripheral vision.

Based on the example above, it is normal to be looking ahead WHILE seeing with our peripheral vision the people and the objects around us. This includes women and what they are wearing without resorting to stairing or gazing.

Now, please, go away, and quit trolling.

How did the debate go from how awful women's jeans look with holes in the knees to cars ?
Oh that's right, I explained all that to you in post #23.

If she could only figure out what "lt looks" means,

She would have to look first to see what you were talking about.
ME TROLL ? don't be using your name with mine.

You need medical help. That car sentence was an EXAMPLE and an ANALOGY.

We Serbians have one saying: ``Kill the woman, but you won`t kill the devil in her.`` So, we gave up.

You are a nice guy but you are wrong. At least about men in the US.

We have a sense of humor. We can take the shots. We self-deprecate. We never hold the grudge. We shake hands and move on. We don't dwell on the past. We listen and react to what we hear, not subcontext. We admit fault. We apologize even when they, the women, screw up. We don't stay mad for days. We let the other person finish the sentence. We inquire and ask questions before we get angry.

Women are the exact opposite. And they kill babies and call it a sacred constitutional right, but never explain at what exact moment a fetus morphs into a baby.
