This Is Going to Make the Moms MAD

Whenever I call the Moms and Daddums, they both pick up the phone on different receivers. The old man's usually out in his workshop in the garage, and the Moms is in the house. Everytime the Dads picks up and the Moms can't get to the phone, he informs the caller that she must be "on the pot." This gets the Moms VERY MAD. She tells him that the WHOLE ENTIRE world does not need to know that she is in the bathroom.

[Sorry Moms, but that shit is fucking funny.]

I sometimes wonder how in the world the idea of men and women living together ever got started to begin with.
I'm with your mama on this one.

I'm with you. Men and women are SO different.

You would be amazed how many phone calls I make from work and have little kids tell me mom/dad can't come to the phone because they're on the toliet. How horrifying! Add this to my list of reasons I don't want kids. :)

Pull moms aside and tell her to think of something embarrassing to tell about your dad, like "he is taking a whizz or whatnot"..Men have no couth...thank god for women...xxoo

My Dad used to do the same thing - whether or not she was in the bathroom. I have no clue why men think this is so hilarious. Then again, I've had to field calls when Gary is showering and men will not take "he's not available just now" as a final answer - they think you are covering and get all angry until you spell it out for them.

Hello sexy, I'm back after a long absence, and I'm glad you haven't lost your touch, now speaking as a mum I think that shit is hilarious xx

Syd said...

I would not do that for fear of my life. Plus, it isn't true. I think that men spend more time on the pot than women.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I'm with you on the kids thing.

Great idea!

Men crack me up. Glad you are back safe and sound from vacation.

North West London Girl,
Glad to hear from you, my dear. I missed you!

You are a WISE man.

Hey, I never mind when someone says I'm on the pot. I mean, it's just a recreational thing, not enough to sell or anything.

Anyway, for some reason, there is a certain genre of man who likes to talk about his wife bein' on the pot. I don't know why. Like, if they call and she isn't available, they get all pissy and next time they ask her, where were you--on the pot? What is that about? I don't know.

For me, I don't dawdle around in there. I get out as soon as I can. It's not a relaxing place. Like, how did they come up with the term 'lady's lounge' ? Who the hell wants to lounge in there? It's just gross! There's no air, it's smelly, there's some kind of toxic cleaner spilled under the counter, I mean, there is NOTHING to recommend that place for lounging.

i kind of got on a train of thought, there. but i'm not on the pot. with my laptop. no.

Foul! Out of bounds! A clear violation of marital loyalty. 15 yards penalty and first down at the spot of the foul.

Parabolic Muse,
You crack me up. No laptops in the pot! Laugh.



You are a wise man!
