I was working with a guy tonight who asked me what time we would be done with our project (putting up sound and lights for the Miss Arkansas competition). When I told him we would be lucky to be done by midnight, he looked at me with fear in his eyes and said, "My wife is going to chew me out if I tell her that!"
What the **** is wrong with guys? Why would you be with someone who emasculates you any time you don't bow to her whim? From what I've seen, 70% of guys ask, "How high?" when their significant other tells them to jump.
I like my girlfriend, and I often do things that are not necessarily my favorite things to do just because I want to make her happy, but if I ever get the slightest hint that she is trying to bully, nag, manipulate, or guilt me into doing something, I refuse her. If she continues in that way, I politely call her on it and tell her to stop.
A man whose woman does not respect him is not much of a man.
For those of you who do not see a difference between being respectful of your wife/girlfriend and being whipped by your wife/girlfriend, here is a similar event which happened with my girlfriend today, Mary Jane. Mary Jane has been wanting me to meet some friends of hers for awhile, and we finally planned a double date with them tonight. Today at work around ten this morning, I find out that I have to work until eleven this evening.
Disgruntled, I called my girlfriend and got voice mail. I said, "Get ready to be disappointed. I have to work tonight for Miss Arkansas. Friday night too. Sorry. Hopefully we can work something out for next week. I'm still on for tomorrow night. Bye."
She called back in a little while, and I took the call. She said she wanted to let me know she wasn't disappointed, and we could meet them some other time. I called her back again later in the day to let her know that we could watch the Miss Arkansas show together because I will not actually be very busy even though I have to be at work. She said she had already made plans with her friend Aubrey, but she would watch it with me Friday.
See, we consider each other, but we don't "chew out" each other.
Best girlfriend ever!
