(A guest post by Bob)
I hate my job so much that l’d rather spend time detailing inane conversations l have….
Sunday night, wife and l are at the park sitting on the bench watching the kids play. My cellphone rings and l quickly take a look at the call display and promptly put it back in my pocket – deciding not to answer the call. It was from a friend that l can only talk with if I’m drunk or in extremely great mood – cuz the conversation is always me, me and some more me.
Wife says to me aren’t you gonna answer the call?
I say “Not really in the mood”
Wife responds ‘Not answering calls is the douchiest (is this even a word?) thing l know that you do. If someone has taken the time to call, why don’t you just answer?”
So l tell her, “You got this all wrong, the telephone is for my convenience, not the callers. I pay extra each month for the convenience of call display so l can filter.”
Wife says ‘I still think its douchy. In fact your reasoning is douchy. So its double douchy. So what do you think you do is considered douchy?”
So before l responded, l thought of all the real douchy things l do but couldn’t tell her….
– getting text from wife saying how much she misses me and then responding likewise (but l wasn’t)
– getting text from wife saying ‘Thinking of you’ and then responding likewise (but I wasn’t thinking of her at that moment)
– I think l’m superior cuz l watch more intellectual movies and read deeper books than her
I thoughtfully considered my options and l went for the funny response. I said ‘The douchiest thing l do is l clean vagina! ‘
I thought it was funny but she didn’t. So l quickly came up with another answer that l thought would result in the least amount of person injury.
“I avoid coworkers on their last day to avoid awkward goodbyes”
She says ‘That is douchy”
So, what douchy things do you do?
