"A lady wants a BMW, a big fridge and staff...so to hell with the running, ballacks to the keeping in shape, just get a job with oodles of cash and you can take your selection... "Re: Fat Birds in the Gym Posted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 10:10 am by Cuddles



"Lots of truth on here.

Cuddles, bang on mate, they loves the cash!!"Re: Fat Birds in the Gym Posted: Mon Jul 03, 2006 10:29 am Biscuits

The above got me thinking.

I have every intention of joining on or other of the forces depends on which will give me the best career. However my OH and I have discussed this and I expect him to follow me. If I ever can be bothered to propose...I turned him down 6 times and made him promise not to ask me again, so its up to me.

Yes...I am a career girl I don't want a forces man don't want the whole you joined to find a man bollocks. Husband hunting is not my style. I don't want a man who disapppears off around the world. Don't want the pain of him going on ops. I am selfish. I do however, seem to be the exception to the rule. Currently I am a student/swimming pool life guard/swimming teacher/aerobics instructor so I earn my own money which is if you include my NHS grant means I am living on £15,000 plus. (posh student) so I like money.

If I manage to complete my studies and gain entry, am prepared to support him, feed, shelter, keep him clothed. However if he is able to find journalist job in the location thats all good too. I don't want to turn him into him in doors but....

So two questions

1/ Could you give up your career to be a House Husband?

2/ Is it your experience that woman are just after your wallet?

You vomitous reptile...... I hope he finds another moose to chuck his mix up and gives her the ring instead.

As for you earning your own money and including a student grant, don't make me trump a hole through my underpants........ and a life gaurd??? how does a hippo rescue anything?

But in answer to your questions

1, No
2, No

The question that you don't ask about : Do we think you are an up your own arrse soap dodger with high sights and an old tired rifle

3, Yes, and a cnut to boot!

I dont see how anyone, male or female, can use running a home as an excuse for not having a career, you've got to be pretty slack if you cant manage both. I combine a demanding career with running a large house, caring for my partially disabled ex wife (who still works but doesnt have enough go left for housework) and pursuing an active social life. The house and garden are immaculate, the cars are all washed (by me) the fridge is well stocked and the laundry is all up to date. There is a downside of course, I have to run around like a blue-arsed fly for nineteen hours a day! On the positive side, theres less lard on me than a vegans pinny, and I dont have to watch what passes for entertainment on the box.
Things might be different if I had kids, but only slightly, as I'd pack them off to boarding school and send them to my parents between terms. Sorted!

Edited to add:-

Buggerit, I'm the only one to post a boring, sensible answer. I'm (almost) as big a cnut as she is!

I hope your other half cuts your womb out with a rusty knife then wears it as a hat. Don’t worry he will be soon gone after you join up and the REME fitter section take turns in kicking your prolapsed back doors in.

I'm not sure who I feel more antipathy towards; the fellah in this relationship who is too weak to tell you to do one, or you, p_c. Egocentric. Sociopathic, delusional, selfish, overbearing, exploitative, smug, shallow, .... I'm going to run short of "nice" words soon.

Sandmanfez, what an exceptional and capable person you are. Would we were all so wonderfully diligent.

However, most of us suffer from a deplorable desire to take a breath every so often and enjoy everything we have worked for, which for our sins, occasionally includes 5 minutes peace.

Also, there's nothing remotely wrong with either sex keeping the house and personal admin in order, and/or making sure the offspring have enough care and attention that they don't end up as psychopaths or with other social dysfunctions. I can say this, as I'm a hideously over-qualified professional who has worked arrse off for a decade, and can't wait for the next and more interesting challenge the afore mentioned involves.

It's a toughfy princess_combat. If you're chap is willing and able to keep a home, then I say go to it, you're extremely fortunate.

Kids make all the diffrence short of earning enough to employ a nanny or have fit parents conviently close by .And if their they are fit
most dont want to be unpaid child care all the time .One of you ends up working less .I loathed my job ,wife liked hers .When our childcare arrangements collapsed unexpectantly one of had to stay home .Its not great and its not through choice .I would think it odd for any bloke to make it a career choice .

Princess_Combat - You don't want 'your man' to join the forces but it's ok for you to do it?

Tell me, how exactly does a fatty teach aerobics? It wouldn't instill much confidence in the regime being able to help you lose weight would it?

He's proposed 6 times, and now it's all on your terms? Fella, if you happen to read this: Fcuking run mate, but make sure you chin her first.

Such a welcome change to the run-of-the-mill: "Wimmin iz fer" and "Geezas iz fer". Indeed, a breath of fresh air into this antiquated (and ultimately comfortable?) view of the roles of "wimmin" and "geezas". Top post!

Princess Conceited, its very rare that I give thought to the site when away from it, however en route to an appointment half an hour ago I found myself getting aggitated at the wheel thinking about your deluded boyfriend.

I think he is a figment of your tubby bird imagination along with your mad eup tale about being a life gaurd, where in reality if you even go near the waters edge, thirty green peace blokes appear to squirt you with water to try and roll you back in.

I actually found myself talking a large intake of breath and yelling 'cnut' at the top of my voice whilst visioning myself in a pair of ice skates jumping up and down on your big saggy jowells.

Thanks LB, that definitely deserved a :roll: smiley!

I wasnt after praise, I was just making the point that its not necessary for either partner to give up work in order to run the house. In this day and age, there are so many labour saving aids and facilities that the role of housewife/husband seems more than a little self indulgent, financially untenable and psychologically unhealthy.
In my SOI, everyone works, even those couples with children. Admittedly, quite a few employ an au pair, but rather than the kids suffering as a result of parental neglect, they seem to thrive on the extra holidays, piano/riding/ballet lessons etc, that a second salary makes possible.

Of course, some people enjoy sitting on their enormous ar$es, enduring the gradual but inevitable degradation of their mental faculties, whilst shovelling cakes and cookies into their slack-jawed grids.
But who am I to judge?

Providing that was not a wah Cait: She meant that she wouldn't want to marry someone who goes on ops etc, but it'd be perfectly fine for her to do it and the bloke would just have to lump it.

Instead of 'the exception to the rule' perhaps you meant to say 'a total fcuking hypocrite, of such mind boggling density, that it causes neutron stars to weep in awe'.


If you say wah, I may have to cry.

Crikey dick!! How many testicles do you eat for breakfast???

"I expect him to follow me" 8O

"I don't want a man who disapppears off around the world. Don't want the pain of him going on ops" but you expect him to put up with it?

"I am living on £15,000 plus. (posh student) so I like money" If you like money why do you want to join the army? You could make a hell of a lot more without joining up. Also I wouldn't consider £15k to be 'posh', crikey £15k is slush account money!!

Also about the whole NHS thing, if you take on a grant from them doesn't that mean you must work for the actual organisation after completing the course you were financed for?

"If I manage to complete my studies " - manage?? If you have concerns over getting to the end of your course, shouldn't you be the one offering to stay at home? ;-)

To be honest I am slightly doubting this chap!! What MAN would actually stand for this double standards encrusted relationship? One might say you've with this chap because you don't like strong/headstrong men, and if that is the case I imagine it would be a bit of a shock for you in the army when being ordered around by one? However, since you're the self proclaimed exception to the rules I would think you'd abide by a different set of them!!! :twisted:

Not if it means staying at home every night while urine it up in the Naafi with your mates, then pishing off around the world, leaving me to worry about who's shagging you while your away and giving you nasty diseases to spread upon your return.


Then again, I could always wait until you get to be a SNCO/WO then divorce you, insist you have the custody of the kids, but take the house anyway (where did you expect me to live?).

oh what a choice.....only wanted you for your money anyway.

:p

And yet you admit yourself you are a chubbawubbahippocrocadillapig.

So what exactly do you teach? Synchronised Pie Noshing? Freestyle Pizza Gorging?

Easy to afford I suppose on £15000. Which, I have to admit, sounds like shite to me. :roll:

I believe one of the words to describe this creature is "narcissistic" perhaps even popping "personality disorder" after the N word.


I have discussed this and I expect him to follow me. If I ever can be bothered to propose...
Expect him to follow you? Goodness me how convenient for you. Relationship on your terms alone. Terms that will no doubt include your right to decide you can leave at any time you decide you do not want him following you anymore and that he just has to accept that decision without question. How very emotionally mature. You obviously mean more to him than he does to you. Then again effective adult intimacy in an equal committed partnership probably is not your strong point.

I don't want a man who disapppears off around the world. Don't want the pain of him going on ops. I am selfish.
It is so refreshing to see an individual so expressive about their wants and needs at the expense of anothers. One hardly ever encounters that these days. I am sure he appreciates the fact you have such a patronising approach to organising his life and career choices. I feel there is a very good chance you apply yourself with equal vigour to steering all aspects of his life in the direction in which you find most suitable for your own needs. Do you also belittle him and his achievements to make yourself feel more important? Do you confabulate and exaggerate your own talents and achievements to make sure he knows how lucky he is to have you?

am prepared to support him, feed, shelter, keep him clothed. However if he is able to find journalist job in the location thats all good too. I don't want to turn him into him in doors but....
How magnanimous of you. I am sure he will enjoy the environment you construct for him. No matter how stifling. It is most heartening to see that you appreciate "the little (wo)man at home" may require some outside company once in a while to help keep up the external appearance that all is well inside your little family. Should you decide he is worthy of your proposal of course...and if you actually follow up on that by actually committing to him by actually getting married...as opposed to just getting engaged and stringing him along for a few years till you find your internal battle with your self-esteem is lost and you are still the same boring, mindless, self-loathing individual you were before you met your partner and you began to consider him an extension of yourself because of your innate talent and boundary violating.

Then again perhaps when you come back to read this thread....because you will not be able to stop yourself from doing that....you will say something like "gee you all bit well. it wuz only a bit of fun like".

Pathetic creature.
