The new rage

(Note: I am in denial that last week ever happened. With a phone outage, high winds, power blips, internet outage, torn up siding and shingles and a non-booting computer, trust me, it’s for the best.)

Sunday I asked Captain Clueless to take the dog out for a walk while I cleaned up land mines in the back yard. They returned through the back yard because they had a lot of mud to clean off. He asks me a question as I’m busy scooping. I respond. He loudly says “I CAN’T HEAR YOU!”

I look at him, and sure enough he still has his ear buds in. “Can you hear this?” I asked, as I flipped him the bird.

A few minutes later he asks me something else, and I look at him. He still has the damn things in. There is no way he could hear my response unless I screamed it. I started ranting (to myself because he obviously wasn’t going to hear me) about how rude that is and if he can’t at least take those things out of his ears I am not even bothering to try to talk to him, etc. I go back to my chore and he says “I CAN READ YOUR LIPS YOU KNOW, IT’S NOT NICE OF YOU TO CALL ME A COCK SUCKER!”

I say it was completely justified.

  2. That made me laugh out loud! I have conversations with my husband that he (claims) has no recollection of. I have threatened him that I am going to write down our conversations and have him sign it. Men!

  5. Wow. I hate to think of the things you must have called me over the years. (That is not a hint, because I do NOT want to know.)

  8. See, the mystery is - did I really say that? Or does he just think I said that. Hmmm...

    And I'm glad it was too cold for the neighbors kids to be playing in the back yard.

  9. And the worst of it is that you don't have a cock for him to suck.

  10. Being called a "cocksucker", I think, is completely justified if you've asked a question and then expect, because you are busy listening to music, that of course the person ASKED the question will respond by speaking full in your face so that you can read their lips as opposed to continuing to do what they were doing. Of course.
