Do Someone You Love A Favor…Leave Them Alone

This is a favorite expression of mine, and so true. No one wants to be bitched at and if  you’re not convinced, turn the tables and see how you like it.

My friend Ed has what he calls the no bitch rule…you get to complain to your significant other about an infraction three times…if it continues, that’s it. You shut-up through eternity, unless of course her cooking or nose picking packs you off to divorce court, which isn’t highly recommended. I mean, anyone you’re with will do something to challenge your love. The point being, how much do you love them?

I hate being hassled. If I’m late, or would rather not…I want you to say, “It’s okay baby…no worries on this end.”

Not, “Goddammit, I’m so sick of your Cancerian moods…for once will you think about me for a change?”

That’s when Thin Girl leaves so fast she makes skid marks.

I am such a great example. I never get mad if you cancel. Why? I always have a book as backup. You’re cute and all, but so’s the Big Oyster: History on the Half Shell, the book on my nightstand.

When you say, “Can’t we just stay home and order in?” I’ll say, “Sure honey,” then take all the take-out menus out of the oven spreading them before you urging you to pick whichever one you prefer.

Wouldn’t you want to come home to me? I’ll even tip the delivery guy and bring you your plate brimming with everything you shouldn’t eat in bed on a tray.

The guy who says, “Don’t you think it may be time to do those dishes?” is not the guy for me. I want him to say, “Finish your chapter sweetie…I’ll do them.”

“Ya will? Really? That’s why I love you so much, cause YOU LEAVE ME ALONE…wanna have sex?”

See, you need to run the tape to the end. Wouldn’t you put on that leopard Victoria Secret corset you save for special occasions for someone who’s willing to scrub your spaghetti pot?

I thought so 🙂    images-1

  1. There’s a lot to be said for someone who will just let you be you. It’s hard to have friends or acquaintances who won’t, even worse when it’s a significant other.

    • It’s becoming extinct…acceptance that is. I get so weary of others displaying dissatisfaction over my behavior, and it happens a lot. Live and let live comes to mind. I try to do that…to be the example…one day hopefully it will be returned. So far not.

    When our four children were young, my Pookie-Pie would have them play outside or quietly inside if I was writing. And he often tells me “Why don’t you take it easy today, baby. Just sit and read all day.” How could anyone not love a sweetie a like this?

    Oh so true. I got tired of living up to other’s expectations a long time ago. My husband is not like that but the flip side is that I have to be accepting too.

  4. Great read today…. I have always had a two time rule, third time is nagging… try hard to follow it, not always successful… My Dad always said, “You are never late until you get there.” It made it so much easier to get ready. Of course, this is the same man that thought if you arrived at a function 30 minutes early, you were still late. I am always the one waiting for someone to get ready, but, I am a very good wait-er. Loved this post!

    I am a loner extraordinaire. My idea of the perfect mate would be one who leaves Monday morning and returns Friday afternoon. And people wonder why I never married. Which is a very rude question I am often asked.

    That was a nice post SB. I used to be like that, and the women flocked. Now I see one of the main changes I’ve made without knowing. As if the world owed me something, I became bitter and distant. “I’m such a good person, people should work hard for my affection.” Yeah, how would they know I was worth it now? An easy fix. Look at you, helping total strangers without even trying. Nice gift.

    I was reading your posts, trying to figure out what kind of man it takes (or took) to sweep a woman like you off of her feet (in the unlikely event that I ever actually meet a woman like you). 🙂
