Title: What is the correct/polite response....
Post by: Butterbean on November 14, 2011, 02:58:40 PM
When you are in a store or something and someone almost runs into you accidentally and they say, "Excuse me"  ?

Post by: xxxLinda on November 14, 2011, 03:12:01 PM
That so rarely happens.  Usually it's a sharp elbow in the ribs or a bash with a big handbag and a blank stare.



I say Squeeze Me Squeeze Me? or Scusa Scusa? if I'm trying to get through a crowd.  Both work any time, any place.



xL


More often than not though, it's a massive woman coming at me with a child in a pushchair and I just get outta their way.  

Do a sidestep.  Sometimes I politely say "You're welcome?" as they stomp past me.

I usually take the situation into perspective. Are there other paths around you, did they just butt right through because they're too lazy to take the other path?

I find far too often that people just move right through where you're standing because they want the path of least resistance and then it's easier to say "Sorry" or "Excuse Me" and have it be false/hollow. With that said, it's usually the case that people are just being impolite/rude and want to get to the destination ASAP. So I usually give them some witty quip to let them know I was insulted they did what they did..."You're sorry? No I'm sorry you didn't go around, you just found it easier to say I'm sorry and continue moving."

Fnny responses!

I used to say "um hmm" or "that's OK" but that seemed kind of rude like acknowledging they did something wrong when they didn't.  One time after I said "excuse me" to a lady she said, "You're fine." meaning, you did nothing wrong, you're fine....so I say that.

But the other day a couple almost ran into me unintentionally and the man said, "Excuse us." and I said "You're fine."

I was about 15 or 20 feet past them and I hear the "lady" say in a bitchy voice, "You're fine!"   I turned around and she was looking away but he looked at me like he was embarrassed. 

I thought "you're fine" was a nice thing to say but apparently not  :'(

Everyone responds differently to different things too. What you said could have put her off for a variety of reasons. Maybe she was just having a bad day, was a tourist and where she's from it's not a proper response, or perhaps she was saying you have a fine butt? ;D

Sometimes when someone leaves and they offer a parting comment like "Hope you have a nice day" I will say "likewise." Certain situations, however, this comes off as awkward as well as insincere and a lot of people misinterpret me returning their good words as being shallow.

Being a woman she probably misunderstood and thought that you were trying to come on to her man.  As in "you're fine, call me sometime" not like "you're fine, for being an absolute douch and running into me"

Being a woman


Precisely.  It's completely and utterly totally different if you're a woman...

(Migs' first response to this being a good example).  If you are a man obviously you can sarcastically say "you're excused" and give them a knowledgeable wink when they cut you off in pedestrian traffic.

But as a defenseless woman, that's impossible.  All you can do is see them approaching, stand back and hold the door open for them as they flounce past, pounding the pavement and making you quiver and shake and making you hate humankind.

And crowds.  Gimme strength.  I detest crowds.  Dip and dive.

I learned this in NYC when I was very young:  Someone might punch my perfect teeth out if I smile at them the wrong way.  Smiling is a no-go.



Best polite response is to back off, get miles away.

Post by: xxxLinda on November 20, 2011, 02:03:04 PM
I have though recently realised a new phenomenon:  People bashing through or even sometimes just standing their ground and being polite and saying "I'm sorry?"  with a slight rudish intonation like a query at the end?  I'm sorry??


Me being me, I always have an answer to every one-liner...  I've started saying 'but don't ever be sorry' (as in don't ever in future do anything to be sorry for, but they obviously don't get that sarcasm).  It works.

I say 'don't be sorry', sidestep and do the half smile, you know, the semi one with just the upwards lips without the full-on-teeth.

The other day at Safeway, a woman who was not paying attention to where she was going, ran over my foot with her shopping cart. Fortunately, it just knocked my sandal off my heal and didn't actually hurt me. She apologized and I told her that it was OK and that I was fine. But, in my head I was thinking "pay attention to what you are doing you dumb bitch!" Guess it's good that we don't always say what we think, huh?


Title: Re: What is the correct/polite response....
Post by: xxxLinda on November 20, 2011, 02:56:40 PM
What i'd say to that one (after not kicking her) is "it's okay - we're so lucky i'm not wearing my cowboy boots..."  as in:  I could've really hurt you.


But on the other foot, please look where you're going, sometimes one (me mostly) might find themselves in a dream state whilst wheeling down the cheese aisle and one might not see the bloke coming the other way who knows exactly what he wants.

But what would be wrong with saying that and why? If she was obviously not paying attention to you, what else could have happened? Even if she was paying attention she deserves you to say that to her even more!

People don't take time to reflect upon themselves and make adjustments and make themselves better. It hurts too much and can be frustrating as hell. But this is how we make progress in the world. Not by always being polite so as to not hurt their feelings. She hits your ankle and say she bruises it and you're in pain...is it so wrong to turn around and say "You dumb fuck! What's a matter with you?!" If you don't she will probably walk away thinking it was wrong of her. But with you leaving that indelible imprint upon her mind, just maybe she'll do something to avoid being yelled at the time time and not hit your ankle.

It's not rocket science.

I hope you are not suggesting that there is anything wrong with wearing sandals. Where I live, in the Pacific Northwest, flip-flops are most common. Sandals are equivalent to wearing work boots. Besides, my sandals cover my feet better than most of shoes you most commonly see women wearing, which are usually nothing much more than a couple of thin straps over the top of their foot.

Pulling up to a gas pump yesterday, a guy (older than me, so he must've been ancient) came pulling up the other direction (so we were nose to nose) made sure he was going faster than me to get to the pump first, forcing me to back up and find another pump.  I walked over to the area where he was fueling (to get some paper towels  ;)) and said "I bet no one ever accused you of being a gentleman.  Happy Thanksgiving" a$$hole(under my breath)

For its forthcoming Leonardo da Vinci exhibition the National Gallery is limiting the number of tickets to 180 per timed half-hour slot. If that sounds like a lot, bear in mind that health and safety rules allow for a maximum 230 entrants every 30 minutes.

The museum's decision to pare down numbers and revenue is aimed at reducing what has become known as "gallery rage": the anger that wells up in visitors when they can't see the paintings for the gawping crowds, even after paying an extortionate price for a ticket. This was such a feature of Tate Modern's heavily subscribed Gauguin show that many disappointed punters swore they would never attend a big exhibition again.

So what can you, the ordinary punter, do to prevent the symptoms of gallery rage?

▶ Go at odd hours. Try first thing in the morning or last thing at night (blockbuster shows sometimes stay open until 9 or 10pm in order to accommodate everyone). Even if it's still crowded, it will be less fraught.

▶ Approach the exhibit non- sequentially. Visitors tend to bunch up at the first few works of art, driven by a sense that they have to see everything in order. Jump ahead to less crowded works, or even follow the whole route backwards. This should stop you suffering from gallery rage, although you may cause some.

▶ Skip the audio tour. The evil voices in your headphones will only tell you to go where everyone else on the audio tour is going. This invariably leads to traffic problems around paintings about which the audio guide has something to say.

▶ Re-contextualise the event. Pretend you've come to see a performance installation about crowd control and the limits of human endurance and that the art on the walls is, if anything, a needless distraction.

▶ Wear a high-visibility vest. It makes you look official; people will be afraid to jostle you.

▶ Cultivate a taste for the overlooked, the offputting, the little understood and the poorly reviewed. Your best hope of seeing a one-off collection of masterpieces in peace comes whenever some critic has the foresight to describe the show as "badly curated".

▶ Take advantage of adverse conditions. Even over-subscribed exhibitions become suddenly accessible during freak snowstorms, transport strikes and violent protests. Watch the news, pick your moment and bring extra water in case you get beaten up or kettled on the way home.

▶ Stay home and watch TV. Someone has to. Don't worry about being a philistine; just be thankful you live in a country where museum overcrowding is an actual problem.

It's times like this that I really become a smart ass. Quips from nowhere, snide remarks and nobody ever seems to step up to the challenge me back. They're always willing to open the door and play the game but never ever are they big enough (not in size or BBing fighting terms...in intellect and brazen enough) to finish the game that they themselves brought upon them at that moment.

I switch up the pics from time to time, as well as the signature/comment lines.

I haven't been to see the rest of his paintings at the National Gallery here in London yet, but am planning to, it's on till January and is totally sold out, but they're doing 100 tickets every morning if you queue.  I'm waiting till it snows and the whole city shuts down and I'll waltz off to Trafalgar Square on the Number 6 bus or just walk there in my snowshoes.  Fairweather tourist punters won't show and I'll maybe get in.  That's about my only chance to see it.

I've been having a think on this topic and your reply  ... now I wonder



Would anyone have the same or different reaction if you witnessed the same situation happen to :

an elderly man / woman ?

a child ?

a handicapped/disabled person ?



I think my reaction always depends on my mindset / location / and who "caused" the situation


I can go either way .. polite and cruel are both as easy to me to react with .. but I don't allow someone to bump into me ignorantly without them excusing themselves very quickly or it's not pretty

if I saw any of the above being ran into I would quickly make sure they were really ok and not just too timid to speak up if they were hurt

I think my reaction always depends on my mindset / location / and who "caused" the situation


I can go either way .. polite and cruel are both as easy to me to react with .. but I don't allow someone to bump into me ignorantly without them excusing themselves very quickly or it's not pretty

if I saw any of the above being ran into I would quickly make sure they were really ok and not just too timid to speak up if they were hurt 



It does depend on who is doing the act. If an older person walks in with a cane, sure they get a pass. A small child being, well a child, sure. That's what kids do. But if the person is perfectly capable of going around and it's blatantly obvious they're just being lazy and cutting me off or disrupting me & my group...I will say something and be snarky.

back to the beginning here: if you're a man the situation is entirely different?


I suppose you're a man (which board am I on is this the manly board?  Is you a bloke on the bloke board or are you a bloke on the girly board pretending to be a woman?   Being silly, I'm sure you understand...





If you were a woman you'd have to do the side-step every time, all day every day.  No chance ever to answer back.  Or even to teach or modify.  You cannot speak out as a woman.  No way.

You'd (if you were a woman), have to make way for everyone if you dreamt or just supposed you were going to get home safely.




All this blokey aggro supposition you pretend (or actually carry out) upsets and disgusts me.

madly etc xL

I am with w8m8 here.

Women expect and deserve equality. Despite this, some men, myself included, were taught to act with chivalry particularly when it comes to women. So while it is rare I would hold a door for a man my age or younger, I will for a woman. This isn't exactly equality, is it?

Like w8m8, I sometimes have a short fuse and tend to respond in kind despite the gender of the person to whom I am responding. So, if guess if a fellow isn't paying attention and runs into me and doesn't bother to excuse himself or if a woman does the same, I may let loose with some snide remark. I've held the door for folks who walk right through saying nothing, treating me, in my mind, like I am their gosh darn doorman or something. When this happens, I've been known to say in a not too soft voice with a certain degree of attitude, "You're welcome" hoping they will get the point.

Some people are just rude and inconsiderate. I haven't seen where it is more common among men or women. Yet, whenever I encounter a very aggressive annoying driver on the road, it always surprises me when I see that it is a woman....even though this is more often the case than not. Go figure?

I'll hold a door open if I'm going out it and someone's coming in.  I had a young chap flamboyantly open a door for me yesterday and it was plain weird, like something from a dream or my childhood.  He smiled.  He almost threw his cape across a puddle a la Francis Drake for the Queen, it was a total act of madness, of total defiance against rudeness.  I'd never seen him before in my life, nor most probably will I ever again, but it was funny, he smiled big time, I broke into a laugh and he made my day.  I giggled about it a few hours later, lovely man...

That though was a once in a year or decade event.


Today at the Post Office there was a queue out of the door onto the street.  It looked like people were punching each other indoors and there were only two cashiers open.  I had a parcel for a friend who happens to have a birthday just before Christmas and when the public sector are striking and working work-to-rule.  

I didn't want to go into the Post Office until people had left, the man in the queue ahead of me was holding the door open and I stood on the street with my massive pink parcel.  I even asked the girlie behind me whether she minded if I hung out on the street till there was half a space inside, wanting to allow people to leave and also not wanting to get any germs.  I hate crowds.  I'm allergic to them so I sneezed.  People then amassed outside and I could now no longer hold my ground, they wanted to jump ahead through the door and make an even bigger angry crowd indoors.  

A woman squeezed out of the Post Office who was maybe 4 people ahead of me in the line so I asked how long she'd waited and she said 20 minutes.  I left too.  My friend won't be getting her birthday present before her birthday is over.

What a mess.  It was horrid, people were pushing from behind, shouting and abusive.  I didn't sneeze or cough in their face, I just crossed the street, bought a supermarket pizza and a bottle of Stoli and carried back my big pink parcel.  I almost cried when I got home.

Yeah if I saw someone running into an old man/lady or being rude, I wouldn't make a scene but I'd certainly walk up to them and let them know what a douche move that was. Sometimes people (I'd say unknowingly, but I'm not so sure) use the public as a shield. They'll intentionally do something knowing nobody will say anything. So I will catch up to them and then softly tell them that if I ever seen them do that again or anything similar I will make them into my personal hand puppet.

What is the correct/polite response....

if you are having a funny and/or interesting conversation amongst like-minded smart funny folk ... and some "affected" person just kept interupting with mostly unintelligle and random verse and ramblings [ illustrations included ]

you can't assume they are afflicted without any self control because sometimes the looneytune would slyly infer things vis a vis disguised innuendo .. they think they are too clever to catch on to ... and gotten by that way for years


what is polite and what is correct and what is more fun ?

Your post is not an out of the blue provocation.  It is a stated response in regard to a provocation.  The only thing that is borderline would be "get off your high horse" as it could be seen as something that could play a part in a continuation of a conflict ...if that makes sense....EDIT....jsut saw the flying squirrel on a crack binge IQ part too.

It's going to be subjective but I think it's probably clear that blatantly provocative/insulting posts on this board ruin the atmosphere here and incite conflict... just about every other board on here welcomes that so none of us should suffer too harshly since that stuff is only a click away ;D

What it is like to be a woman??? Really? Are you suggesting all women are alike?

I've know a few women in my lifetime and at least the women I've known are individuals, each with their own unique personality. I think it degrades women or men to suggest either are homogeneous as defined by gender.

The truth is, no one really knows what it would be like to be someone else. We can imagine what it would be like, but imaginations are tricky and often wrong.

Truth is, women are capable of understanding and emoting and empathising far better than others, that's all.  

I am able to comprehend what it might be like to be someone else, I frequently walk a mile in their shoes.  This is not my imagination, simply my caring sensitive attitude.

Will you post your delete count in order that we may know how close we're coming to making an incorrect or impolite 3rd response?  

I'll need to know if I'm up to two, particularly if that troll with 20 names who's barking about hacking my isp is being horrid on our Girly Board yet again.  Yawn...

I'm rereading our epic thread to see whether it still reads coherently.  I've come across this.  Is this ^to me?

I have never been banned.  I was politely asked to stay away for two weeks for double-posting.  This was long before our overstimulated world became superoverstimulation.  I did the double-posting to keep up with the two-name trolls, but then realized that'll never work.

The other time I was told to refrain was when Arvilla was posting and modding as Laura Lee and I sussed that out after about a day.  I wasn't banned for that, Arvilla was and he's never posted on our Girly Board since and nor has Laura.


okay?

When I bumped this I had already deleted some of your posts because they were provoking.  Since I couldn't be certain that you had read the warning, I was going to PM it to you but now I don't need to, thanks.

OK now that we know everyone has seen this, lets wipe the slate clean for everyone and start over.  It is Christmas time after all!

I do not answer or even look around on the street when someone whistles or honks their car horn, so don't go there.  I think I once registered here as blingthing, can't remember.  I haven't checked the email account I set up in order to sign on here, not in at least 5 years.  I remember that was niceblokesonly and I looked at 35 strange messages on the first day.  I've not looked at it since.

I don't do lifts, put it that way.  

I didn't mind elevators when I lived in America, but I'm not getting in one here, they don't work and yes I'm claustrophobic when it comes down to it.  Too many non-working parts and ugly germs



Take it out on the board here

Claustrophobia: abnormal dread of being in closed or narrow spaces

Agoraphobia: abnormal fear of being helpless in an embarrassing or unescapable situation that is characterized especially by the avoidance of open or public places

There are other phobias too, such as a fear of heights.

no, I don't do phobias much.  Recently i asked a friend to help me bend and fold and get into a bin bag all the polystyrene packing from a new washing machine.  I thought I couldn't handle it.  I thought I had an intense phobia of polystyrene.


But I did it all on my own after realizing that it isn't a good idea to have phobias.



Obviously I'll not be going bungee-jumping any day soon, or ever.  I did once work as the secretary, the only woman on the building site of what was then the tallest building in the world.  I went to the top on a crane before they put in the elevators.  There were helicopters flying past at the same eye level.  I adore heights.

posting on our Girly Board isn't a good idea for you - give it up now and go lift some weights or read a nice newspaper or watch TV.  Honest - you should'nt post - you appear to be too stupid to be true.

back to topic


I was in the store y/day and this young girl was at the register .. a "working" man was in front of me checking out .. ( working meaning he was dirty like he had been under a car ) .. he was buying gas line antifreeze

She KINDLY asked him for his ID .. he barked back at her .. "What the he!! do you need my ID for ? Jeezuss Kriste"

She turned red and looked shook .. and said "I'm sorry but there are some things we are told to ask for ID for and this is one .. I have to ask"


He pulled out a wallet that looked like it lied in a oil pit and pryed it open to a part that had an UNCLEAR vinyl front with his license behind it ..

The cashier said I'm sorry I can't see it

He got loud and said "Are you serious ? what the he!! do you think ? I'm not going to drink the sh!t" while he was taking his license out for her to see


When he handed it to her he looked back at me (I wanted to ram my trolley up his arse) .. I looked at him (not with a happy face) and just said sarcastically MERRY CHRISTMAS then told the cashier .. "Don't let him bother you .. you just carry on and have a good day at your job .. he will leave and live with that miserable attitude he has ... and you can smile at that the rest of your shift"


he paid her .. got his change .. took his bag and never said another word

I was disappointed

There must be something in the air. My experiences with people in public have been good this year. Almost everyone seems super polite everywhere I go....but then I don't go to the malls where things may be worse.

I did have a small situation at the four-way stop just before entering the parking lot for the local grocery store. The first car in the intersection turned left coming out of the parking lot. I was the second car in the intersection. As I started to turn left into the parking lot another car coming from the opposite direction turned right, cutting in front of me, at proceeded to take the first available parking space. I thought, wow, this person has no idea of the rules of a four-way stop.

As luck would have it. I ended up parking facing the person who had cut me off. She was headed into the store. As I entered the store she and her two kids were standing by the bread display while she was probably choosing a loaf to buy. I should have, but I could resist telling her as I passed her that the last car at a four-way stop intersection does not have the right-of-way. I was polite. She just looked at me like I was a crazy man. Guess no one ever called her out before. I wanted to slap her....but her kids were with her and I didn't think violence was appropriate in this situation. Kidding....I never would slap a woman....well, except in my head.

She may not have realized what she did...she is a woman driver after all ;D... Maybe those kids were driving her crazy in the car and she was distracted.  Sometimes we get irritated by other people's driving..no doubt about it...but sometimes I try to give them the benefit of the doubt...like the people that take a turn sooooo slowly in front of you when you are trying to get through the intersection....sometime s I'm able to avoid road rage by telling myself they may have a cake in the car or an uncooked casserole they are trying not to spill.

Call it reverse road rage, but when I am going 5 miles over the speed limit, which is 35 mph on a two lane main thoroughfare in our neighborhood, and some impatient jerkwad climbs up on my tail, I purposefully slow down to the exact posted speed. No doubt, they probably think I am just another old man driver who cannot see where he is going, but that's just not it at all.

Believe it or not, I got a ticket for exceeding the speed limit by 7 mph in a 35 mph zone about a year ago. It was a photo ticket. I would have gone to court to fight it but the court date was the same day I was scheduled to fly to D.C. So I wrote an explanation, which was that the time of the offense was rush hour traffic and everyone on this very busy four lane thoroughfare was going the same speed. Had I been going the speed limit, I would have impeded the flow of traffic. For my effort, I paid the full $250 fine. Don't bother writing explanations to the court, it doesn't mean squat in Portland, OR.

By the way, I was very polite to the woman who cut me off when I spoke to her. Perhaps this was because I considered that she was probably distracted or just didn't know the rules of this type of intersection.

I do the exact same thing.  There's a road nearby that is very hilly and the speed limit is 35.  Cops hide all the time.  It's impossible to do 35 in some spots without braking heavily.  People just fly.  If I'm doing 45 or so and someone comes up on my tail, I bring it down to exactly 35.  They should thank me, cause half the time I saved them a ticket.

The other day I was just cruising along in a familiar area (but didn't know exactly where a particular street was so I had the GPS going.  She tells me to turn right at the next intersection.  So I stop for the light.  She repeats TURN RIGHT.  So I look to my left - no one's coming and I turn right.  Immediately, a cop hits his lights.    WTF?  >:(   He pulls me over and sits there for what seemed like forever (running my plates), comes up to my window REALLY PISSED and says "the reason I pulled you over is because there's a sign at those lights 'NO TURN ON RED between 11 & 2.  It was 1:50; not that I noticed the sign, but sheesh...  he didn't have to be such a jerk about it.  $88 bucks.

I don't know which is better, getting a ticket from a living cop or getting one in the mail where the violation is recorded on video. I got a ticket for making a right turn on a red light. I watch the video and thought it looked like I stopped because the video was choppy. When I called the number for checking on the video and explained how it looked to me, the lady on the other end of the phone politely told me that six people review the video before the ticket is issued. I went to court on this one. The fine was reduced by 25% which is the maximum allowed in Oregon.

This makes two tickets in two years. Before that, I had no traffic violations. Both these tickets are the result of camera/video tickets. Either I was better a spotting the police than I am at scoping out a camera or my driving has gotten worse. Either way, I am on my very best driving behavior now....no more tickets!

I do this too but I slow down even further than the posted speed.  And sometimes slam on my brakes....I'm terrible and need to stop doing this :(  but they back off afterward...probably for their own safety after seeing that I'm a woman driver.


250 for a speeding ticket?  Were you in a school zone or something?


As for the cameras...what if someone else is driving the car?  Do they still issue the ticket to you?  I have heard of someone getting a ticket in the mail where they send a pic and people have written back, Not Me (driving) and they invalidated the ticket.

Also, a person that used to post here a lot got a ticket in the mail for running a red light which she didn't remember doing and they gave her a link to view the video of her doing so she looked it up and sure enough she did it.. she sent the link to me and for some reason it was hilarious.



It was a construction zone with no construction. My colleagues told me that it was a notorious speed trap....who knew? Not me! Most all of this highway is posted 45 mph. It was just a three block area where it was posted 35 mph.

Several years ago, we were headed out to breakfast when our daughter announced she was about to be ill. All I could think of was getting over to the curb as quickly as possible. This wasn't a problem as there was no traffic on the road at all. As soon as I passed through the intersection I realized the camera had snapped a picture of me running the light. The ticket was issued to my wife. She contacted the authorities to tell them she wasn't driving and that I was (thanks). Anyway, they dismissed the ticket because they said it cost more to reissue it than to dismiss it. Unfortunately, no the require some proof like a copy of your photo idea if you say you weren't driving. Fortunately for my wife, we don't exactly look alike. LOL!

Big brother is watching these days. Be careful not to pick your nose in public because you are probably on camera.

I've stopped doing that.  It usually invokes road rage and I have an easy plate to remember.  New law recently passed and now more people are packing heat.

I learned my lesson about road rage many years ago. We were in San Francisco on a freeway, trying to figure out which off ramp we needed to take....but staying up with the flow of traffic. Some jerk cut me off so I gave him the finger. Well, he followed me for a couple of miles before he gave up. No way was I pulling over with the wife and kids in the car to give him a piece of my mind. Now had I been alone....

The time I had the most fun driving was in Paris. Naturally, we had an insured rental car. I loved the stop lights in France; they go from green to red and everyone stops. Then they turn yellow, like saying get set, and then green for go. Some of the streets are so narrow, you wonder if your little car will fit and other boulevards are so wide that cars are all over the place like in bumper cars. Nobody is going really fast so an accident is bound to be fairly insignificant.

On the otherhand, driving in Germany on the Autoban was scary. Here we were in a little Opal four banger with no guts. If you needed to pass a truck in the slow lane, you risked your life. Trucks had a speed limit of 60 mph while cars at that time had no speed limit. So the highway looks clear and you decide to gun it and pass the truck. Almost before you get fully in the the next lane some big honking Mercedes is on your tail flashing the car lights and honking, eventhough there is nowhere for you to go until you get passed that damn truck. More recent trips have been better because there is now a speed limit. One thing about the Germans, they pretty much obey the traffic laws. I think the consequences for not doing so are pretty stiff.

You surely can't hate anyone?  There but the Grace of God Go You.  

-Always heard it said, "There but for the grace of God go I." Either way, it's a great motto to live by, IMO.

on the Autoban


dammit i cannot keep up with this thread it's going too fast.  I thought the Autobaun was for Mercedes and Porches and Audis (et al various other German cars) and the occasional Italian in a brand new red Ferrari putting his foot down?

I've never done that Autoban and I dislike German( car)s >I'd sooner have a Jag or a Triumph or a LandRover (all of which are no longer owned by Brits.  

It's downhill from here.

xL


this is our Girly Board and I think that we ought no longer discuss cars parking weather or football.



I reckon we should discuss fake tits and stick on eyelashes
It's our girly board...


What is the correct/polite response (I wonder) to ooh you didn't look like that till you put more slap on?


What do men do when encountering a massive bra and a fake woman?  Do you peel those stick-on eyelashes off first and kiss her on that lipstick?  Do you then nuzzle her under her chin and find her neck and all those stuck-there hair extensions they all of every last one of them have nowadays?

I'd be curious to know
In my day sluts I knew would leave an earring behind in order to get invited back.



Do you take all of that adornment off them or do they?  I'm curious to know as I just do soap and water and brush my hair.


This is a correct/polite response query on our Girly Board which no women post upon.

Therefore:  men?  what do you do with a pushupbra or a face full of fake?  Do you take that to bed?


okay I understand that you would have been attracted.  But what do you do when she starts taking it all off?  Do they?  I have no comprehension of this matter.  Any help or comments would be appreciated.

Responses polite please

Gee-sh Linda, do you dislike men or what? Would it make you all better if I volunteered to come over and let you get me up in drag?

Women drive cars. I don't know squat about football and I've not seen any reference to the game here (have I missed something?).

As for the bra question, I am ill informed I guess. Remember, I am an old married guy. My wife had breast cancer and a lumpectomy. Therefore one boob is twice the size of the other. She is long past the push up bra stage and I am long past the obsession with women's boobies stage. So I will leave it to the other men to respond accordingly. As for fake shit on the eyes or otherwise, my wife is a natural beauty. She doesn't need to be fake.

of course I adore men.  I'll ignore your tranny comment and ask that others respond to that.  

Obviously I know you've an enormous sense of humour - but we''ll see.  You can't come over >I'm in London and you're way way a long way away.  Ta for making me giggle.


And I worship men and their cars.  We must agree to disagree.  I adore cars.  I once drove a silver Jag.  You just get in the fast lane and everyone gets out of your way.  Obviously it wasn't my car it came with the job.  Funny thing was we were doing the ads for Porshe/Audi/VW and I'm driving into their parking lot in a Jaguar.



Regarding Footie:  There's nothing worse than a football supporter than a female football supporter.
My grandad played for Liverpool so I'm blood.  I go bonkers when my team are playing.  They've just paid 35mill for my new favourite.

Can I go completely and utterly off topic on our Girly Board and post a pic of LFC star who they never put on the pitch?

It wasn't a "tranny" thing at all. I have no desire to be a transvestite....or to be done up in drag for that matter. Furthermore, I am way, way to ugly to ever look like a woman. I have heavy brow bones, a fat nose and no lips to speak of. I was just being funny, I thought and apparently you thought so too.

I love expensive cars. I don't love spending money on an expensive car. If a Jaguar came with a job, I'd happily drive it. I just can't see myself spending $80,000 on a car. So, I'll keep on driving my 2004 Mazda sport wagon for another 100,000 miles or until it falls apart. It may not be fancy, but it gets me where I'm going. Personally, I'd rather spend my money on travel, my wife, my kids and my grandchildren.

If I ever travel to London, we should meet. I think you'd be a hoot to know in person.

Yes, you answered my post. Glad that you don't hold grudges, Linda.

If you re-read your post, you'll note that I was only being silly and sarcastic about your daft trannytheme and we said we'd ignore it.  Noone else has commented on it so we all now know that you were just kidding darlin' .

I oftentimes get into trouble for that - my sense of humour and irony are frequently misunderstood.  


Sometimes I do hold grudges (in real life - not on the www).  

I bear a grudge for life to be honest.  Far too many people are rude and horrid & thoughtless and selfish nowadays and I'm not putting up with it.  It's not that I can't forgive, it's more that I pity the person who does me wrong and then I concern myself about their karma.  I've tried not to hold grudges but I do tend to.  I just don't forget wrongdoing and enough is enough after a few times.  Some people are so utterly nasty and completely unconcerned about others - it's scary...  

Remind me to tell you some of my karma stories?  Things that have happened to people who have let me down or hurt me?  Some of them are mind-boggling.  

I think it depends upon whether the person just wasn't thinking or whether they were deliberately hurtful.  I've known people to die shortly after being horrid to me.  One guy took his Mother with him (they were both killed) in a car crash in Cannes in a fast sports car one Christmas Eve.  I wasn't even surprised.  Horrid feeling, to feel that.  

But thinking about it again all these years later, that ought not to have been the response he received from life no matter how bad his behaviour.


Oh dear...

I believe in karma too. I am not sure that I have any direct affect on other folk's karma though. That might be too much of a burden to bear. For example, I would never want to think I could have inadvertently be the reason someone died....even if they deserved it.

It seems to me that we have a couple of choices when it comes to how we see other folks. We can expect they are bad or mean or we can expect only the best of them. I prefer to try and give folks a reputation to live up to. Sometimes they disappoint me, but usually they don't. This way of thinking is kind of like walking around with a smile on your face. If you do this, I've found that most folks smile back at me. If they are thinking "what a dolt," I don't really care. I've been told when I don't smile or am just being serious, I look mean and sometimes unapproachable and actually scary....like I might hit someone. Since I don't feel like that at all, I don't want to give that impression.

A thousand years ago, when I was still in my teens,  two lady friends of mine wanted to put makeup on me and my best friend. We agreed to let them make us up. My friend didn't look too bad. I, on the otherhand looked like an ape in drag. I immediately washed my face! That is about as close as I ever came to being a trans-anything.

Mmmmmm.

I don't have sufficient time to respond so shall ponder upon your post.  

Because I tend to expect nothing and therefore am more often than not hugely disappointed.



And remember - you're a big bloke and you can smile at anyone you want and not worry - you can defend yourself.  I'm just a 5'6" woman on my own and (I learned this in New York years ago)  - anything could happen.  Someone could punch my perfect teeth out because I smiled at them the wrong way.  So I've adopted a new half-smile which hopefully isn't so in-your-face.  Dunno.

tomorrow maybe okay?  I'll respond to the rest of your thoughts.  I do need to learn.

Without a doubt there is a difference dynamic when a woman smiles then when a man does. There was a time when mothers taught their daugters to avoid eye contact with strangers, particarly male strangers. Speaking as a male, this was never something my parents suggested to me. Perhaps wise women continue to be more selective when smiling at someone with good reason. There is always a chance one's smile will be misinterpreted as some manner of come-on. Of course, one could say the same thing about a man smiling at a woman. So far, I've not been slapped by anyone for smiling at them.  ;)

I am an averaged sized fellow in my opinion. I stand 5'11" and currently weigh 205 lbs. I workout regularly, so I hope I am reasonably fit looking. I don't see myself as being a threat to anyone. But then, I know I am basically a lover and a big pussy cat. I like people and I expect them to like me in return.

I can only think of one time I put on a tough guy attitude with someone. That was a time, late at night, when I was convinced the person behind me on the street intended to mug me. I turned around and faced them square on telling them to get the *uck away from me before I beat the sh*t out of them. It worked, they took off running. If I'd been a 5'6" female like you, that situation may not have worked out the same; I don't know.

Where are you going on your holiday?

But you have been slapped by a current partner for smiling at another woman?


I've lost good girlfriends whose friendship I've valued - for smiling at and being pleasant to their boyfriends.  

I thought I was being nice.

Hopefully, your question is for everyone here.

In my case, my wife and I have been married for 47 years and we lived together for a year before we married. Neither of us is the jealous type. We both agree that innocent flirting is harmless and good for the ego. Obviously, neither of us feel threatened by a glance or a smile, either given or received. So no, there will be no slapping between us. Additionally, neither of us believe in any form of violence....so a slap is out of the question!

Here is the thing. One should be with their partner because they want to be there, not because they feel some kind of obligation. If either of us had wanted to leave the other, we would have long ago. No amount of slapping would have stopped this. Infact, it may have caused it if we'd gone there.

I did that once a few years ago... walking down the street with a g/f, a couple of guys a little too close for comfort behind us.  I stopped and turned around and said "back the f@!& off".  They did.  

Really stupid on my part, since it was down in Mexico.  ::)  Their response was "better be careful bitch, you're in our country now".  Stayed on resort property after that.
