I was ONLY joking around...

There is NOTHING I like more than something that honestly makes me laugh out loud! It just makes my WHOLE day go a lot smoother...ya know?

So seeing as I got this in an email...I HAD to post it:

A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the house. She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs, 'Honey, pack your bags. I won the lottery!'

The husband said, 'Oh my GOSH! What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain stuff?'

'Doesn't matter,' she said. 'Just get out.'


Loved it!


In light of that...I should probably save this post for my MAYBE new site I'm working on...but I can't.

Because I have no patience.

So when you are talking with your husband...and he starts making you mad by goading you about something...HELK anything...and keeps at ya until your sweet personality has taken enough and you EXPLODE on him telling him what a body-part-that-rhymes-with-pass he is and he just stares at you and says, "I was only joking around...sweetheart (drips with sarcasm) need to go postal on me!"

Is it OKAY then, for the sake of your sanity, to ACTUALLY go postal on them?

Or is the wife UPTIGHT because she won't just laugh or shrug it off? (Because she knows...SHE KNOWS...that he wasn't joking around, but he saw that he was in trouble so COPED out and used the JUST JOKING excuse?)

Just wondering...Guys feel free to respond...

This made me laugh out loud. My day had better go smoother or I shall hold you responsible (or just read this again, in case it just didn't take the first time around).

Todd knows better than to get my goad. He knows that I can not speak to someone for weeks at a time. (and by someone, I mean him)
Plus I guess there is that whole withholding sex thing. Not that I would ever do anything like THAT!

Kritta22 said...

Oh Chris has done this before. I blow it off at the time and give him a little pinch. Then when we get in the car, he gets it! :) Or the silent treatment. Whichever. He prefers the yelling so I choose the weapon! :)

Susan said...

Don't get me started. My husbands working nights this week which totally equals CRANK POT. And ASS is totally reasonable.

Youngblood4ever said...

He needs to be slapped...although I have never had the guts to actually slap my hubby when he does this, which is quite often. He tells me I should be used to it after 10 years. I yell, "I WON'T BE USED TO IT AFTER 10 YEARS. YOU WILL STOP NOW OR THERE WON'T BE 10 MORE." To which...he laughs.

brooken'dus said...

Ya D always does that "OHHHH I'm just kidding" ya I bet you were and now your going to pay for it! BOO-YA

springrose said...

Oh, just in time for Valentine's Day! What a post for all those whose husbands don't quite put in the effort. Or don't know what to get, slang for I didn't want to try!!

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Love the joke!

I saw let him have it. We put up with enough crapola in a day to have to take his sarcastic remark, especially with sweetheart, I hate being called that. If you know he wasn't joking let him have it. It's when you hold it in that eventually it's all going to explode someday.

Annie Valentine said...

Tell me he didn't actually use the word postal. Baby don't even know what he stirrin' up wit that one.

Sher said...

Oooooo, this post struck a nerve, big time!
Why does guy think it's okay, so saw whatever they damn well please, hurtful, or not, and then say they were joking, and it's Ok.
Thing is, No they weren't joking. They only said they were because they realized it made us mad, and they don't want a fight.
Seriously, Dudes! If you don't want to fight, or make us mad, then BE NICE.

Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. I'm ok now. Breathing is slowing to a normal level, now....

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Amen my girlfriends...AMEN!

I second everything Sherrie Said...they say something mean of offensive or something and then BOOM...Oh I'm kidding...yea right, they totally weren't!

It's funny how much you guys understand!!! lol!

And HELLO glad you spoke up...I am feeling you right now...and I love that you already totally get me! lol!

springrose said...

So speaking of Valentines Day...OK I know I was the one who commented about V-Day but does anyone have any great, i'd settle for semi great ideas for what to do on the big day? It is my turn to plan and I am drawing a blank! We all know that men give women flowers and chocolate in the attempt to score, they know that on this one night a year if they play their cards right they will be happy in the morning. But what to do in the pre-score time? Suggestions can be sent to my blog or left here at Shelles..if you don't mind!!??

T said...

SpringRose - just shorten the pre-score time... get it over with and then you can enjoy the evening in whatever way you most enjoy (can anyone say ice cream) because he's happy already :)

The "get out" had me busting a gut... but Shelle's question... hmmm... it's amazing when a man goes ON and ON about something and won't get the "this isn't very funny" hint... then it's the woman's fault when she can't handle it anymore? "just joking?" - yeah - that's a cop out!

You ever heard that story about the snake and the cowboy that ends with the line "you knew what I was when you picked me up?" - that's what I tell my man when he complains that I don't enjoy his sense of humor :)

Melinda said...

Hahaha Loved the e-mail! Awesome!
Guys are so stupid, and I hate that they think they're so smart! We totally know what they're doing, but us sweet ladies don't like to fight and let them get away with it! :) To your question, I would laugh and say "Do you think I'm dumb? I know exactly what you're doing!" And call him on it! :)

Barbaloot said...

Well--let's be honest, I can't tell you for sure on the spouse thing. But my brothers have irritated me PLENTY of times-to the point of going postal. And then when I do freak out, they wonder why I'm "acting like such a girl."

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

SpringRose... I would book us in a local edible fruit, chocolate, and whip cream... then pack for the two of us. Make sure my kids are cared for, for the night. Then I check in at the hotel.

Then I tell him we are going to dinner at a certain time...after dinner I would drive to the hotel, where the room was set up with fun games and stuff just for the two of us.

Then I after we had our fun playing...I would have a ROMANTIC comedy that he HAD to watch with me!!! :)

Best of both worlds! :)

Hey maybe I SHOULD USE THAT idea! :)

Anybody else?

Mariah said...

I go postal when people (my fiance) pushes my buttons repeatedly and on purpose. I also go postal when he farts in bed

sara said...

Gee, my marriage is perfect. I have no clue what you're talking about.

sara said...

Sorry, I just had to say it! Actually I kind of believe that we as women don't actually need an excuse to go postal. We're allowed to just by the mere fact that we have to put up with men.

springrose said...

Shelle, Thans for the V-Day ideas, I may just do something like that! Also thanks for thinking my fam is cute!!

Anjeny said...

I was totally cracking up on the lottery story.

I am in full support of going postal on the hubby when instead of fessing up to their careless thoughtlessness, they chalked it up to "I was only joking" bit.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog, love you fingerprints you left there..LOL. And it was really sweet of you to put my button on ur sidebar.

Ann On and On... said...

You are seriously too much! I love it.....thanks for my daily giggles.

nick said...

We all have the right to go a little postal sometimes, right? Anyways, I made those lettuce wraps for Nick and they are wonderful! Thanks for a new idea for dinner. Anyways I FINALLY JOINED FACEBOOK! I am moving up along the technological totem pole. But you better add me to your friend list, since you were the one to show me. Don't forget!!!

April said...

I don't say anything...I have a look. One look. He knows he's on the couch! I set the standard high our first week of marriage. He complained about how I was folding the towels.

I said, "Great, you don't like how I fold towels, you can fold the laundry from now on. Is there anything else that I do that you don't like?"


He folds laundry to this day-23 years later.

Haynsy said...

Am I the only guy that is willing to respond.

Okay. Fine!

I think that if you start counting on your fingers the number of times over our marriages that we "goad you to postal" you will have plenty left at the end of the count.

We are joking! But we are also serious!

Start counting the number of times that you've nagged us and we just absorb it.

Go ahead, use your toes, your kids fingers and toes, homeless peoples fingers and toes, that kid with 6 digits on each hand and foot. You'll need them all.

Men, at least the ones that I know just take it.

Whew.... felt good to say that.
