More "mean guy" stories

My friend really IS a mean, insensitive fellow. Here are three more recent exchanges with his wife that brought about unpleasant results (aka huge blow-outs):

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

"I think I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds," she said.

So I bought her a bathroom scale.

Big fight ensued.

My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.

She said, "What's on TV?"

"Dust," I replied.

Big fight ensued.

Fresh from the shower, my wife was standing naked, looking in the bedroom mirror. She was clearly not happy with what she saw.

"I feel horrible," she said to me. "I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment about now."

"Okay," I replied "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

Big fight ensued.

  1. OK, I'm a wife... but I absolutely LOVE these Mean Guy stories. What a hoot. (Glad he's not mine, though.)

  2. At least the "mean guy" stories are ultimately sympathetic to the wives... wait until you see the couple of "mean wife" stories I'm now prepping for publication. ;)

    Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the posts :)
