Sometimes the insanity is just mind-blowing.

Post by Schlegel » Thu Jun 11, 2020 4:23 am

So my wife is on a number of internet groups for moms, women in tech, etc. Sometimes there's problem advice, sometimes commiseration. Complaining about spouses is really common, just venting to a sympathetic audience. My wife enjoys these because invariably it makes her feel good about her pick. Tonight's gem was a lady whose husband came home and changed the channel she was watching without asking her if it was ok. Kinda jerky but not a huge deal, right?

The hilarious part was the wife is now sure her husband is a racist because he turned the TV from the Oprah special to The Fifth Element.

The 5th Element is almost always the right pick.

Guess which phase are we in?

Yep.
In a fair and just society, the real issue here would have been why the TV wasn't set to The Fifth Element in anticipation of the breadwinner's triumphant return from getting shit done, and why there wasn't a hot meal on a plate beside the Lay-Z-Boy. The cold beer goes without saying.
Don't tell my wife I just posted that
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.
