YOU CANT WIN WITH WOMWN

Andrew LLoyd Webber summed up women in his song "Tell me on a Sunday".
Even though she knows she is about to be dumped, she still tries to dictate terms about where it should happen, and when. Even then she cant make up her mind, whether it should be in a park, at a Zoo or at a circus. The only thing definite about it was that it had to be on a Sunday, Does it remind you of anyone, all you marriede men?

I can identify with wives 1, 4, 6, 8 and I think 9. That's been so long ago that I can't recall all the details. What are the odds I'd marry 11 women that were impossible to get along with? Go figure.

I'm still on the first one Felix, still trying to figure her out. Every time I think I've got it, she does something different. I try to avoid going shopping, I'm only there to agree. When she came home with two carpet samples so that I could pick the one I liked, as she liked them both, surprise, surprise, it was the one I did not pick that found its way onto our bedroom floor. You can't win.

I think both of you sound dreamy.


P.S. I let my husband pick out the new carpet.

We don't have carpet because my husband likes hardwood floors.

My wife left me for poetry, to give me something new to write about, she left me. A very noble woman, my wife, she left me for the good of literature.

Maybe in that song she is giving the guy options on where to meet, sounds like she is offering choices. Apart from the sunday bit, she knows she is going to get hurt, maybe best for her to hear it on a sunday (please)

Tell me on a Sunday

Don't write a letter when you want to leave
Don't call me at 3 a.m. from a friend's apartment
I'd like to choose how I hear the news
Take me to a park that's covered with trees
Tell me on a Sunday please

Let me down easy
No big song and dance
No long faces, no long looks
No deep conversation
I know the way we should spend that day
Take me to a zoo that's got chimpanzees
Tell me on a Sunday please


Don't want to know who's to blame
It won't help knowing
Don't want to fight day and night
Bad enough you're going


Don't leave in silence with no word at all
Don't get drunk and slam the door
That's no way to end this
I know how I want you to say goodbye
Find a circus ring with a flying trapeze
Tell me on a Sunday please


Don't want to fight day and night
Bad enough you're going
Don't leave in silence with no word at all
Don't get drunk and slam the door
That's no way to end this
I know how I want you to say goodbye


Don't run off in the pouring rain
Don't call me as they call your plane
Take the hurt out of all the pain
Take me to a park that's covered with trees
Tell me on a Sunday please


I've seen Bernadette Peters sing it with tears running down her face. That heartless controlling shrew.

My apologies to Don Black, it was he who wrote the lyrics, Andrew Lloyd Webber was the composer. It is one of my favourite songs, and makes one realise just how fragile women are (haunting laughter in the background again)

yes, poor fragile women. As a member of this lesser sex, I know that there are times I am so overwhelmed with not understanding my husband that I almost feel a compulsion to come and air my grievances in a public forum. Some how I manage to be tough enough to handle it on my own, fragile as I am. I feel bad for those women who are so delicate that they can't handle their relationships without whining about it to random strangers.

If women were actually fragile, the world may
have stopped with Adam and Eve.
Eve would have been so hurt that Adam blamed her
- when HE CHOSE to eat the apple.
She would have "divorced" him and moved away
and there would have been no Cain and Abel
Instead she chose to forgive Adam for his
duplicity, and gave him another chance....
'Twas ever thus!!!!

Here's to Barnie's wife! Not only has she put up with his crap for all these years, but she's hanging on to him so as to spare all the other single women of the world!

And here's to my hubby for "getting" me, and for not being Barnie.

My husband is the hero of my life and I know he feels that way about me. As for the fragility of women, well that's so old school I'm amazed that anyone would even say it. Any woman who behaves that way is a major player and ALL men should at least understand us well enough to get that, JMO. Not a fan of needy women or controlling men...

Fragile - Women - two words that don't belong in the same sentence.

But - that's okay - ther wouldn't be many songs to listen to if men didn't have the ability to write about how they don't undrestand women - and women didn't have the ability to write about men being jackasses - so it all comes out in the wash---and then we have great music quizzes to take!

I think needy & clingy women make good target practice too. Men too, for that matter. But like the "other" men out there that make the good ones look good, I raise my glass to the whiny, sniveling women out there and thank them for making the rest of us look so good.

I don't wanna hear about men complaining that they make choices and women choose the one they didn't choose.

Actual conversation, after Church, hundreds of times:

Wife: "You want to go out to eat?"
Husband: "Sure."
Wife: "What are you in the mood for?"
Husband: "Oh, I don't care. Anything is fine."
Wife: "Ok, I'm really in the mood for Olive Garden - let's go there."
Husband: "Well, Italian doesn't really sound good to me right now. But anything else...you choose."
Wife: "How about J Pepes? You love Mexican, and that sounds good."
Husband: "Ooooooh, I don't know, somehow that just...I don't want that."
Wife: "You don't want Italian, you don't want Mexican. What DO you want?"
Husband: "I don't know. Anything's good."
Wife: "^%$#%^&&" (and this is right after Church)

Repeated so many times. It takes a woman awhile to realize that when he says he doesn't care, what he means is "I don't care about anywhere YOU choose."

I quit choosing years ago. Because I knew soon the state would be choosing what I eat.

The World - not just women - says that marriage requires 110% effort
You were hoping (maybe) to switch off after the Wedding Day????
I always knew that marriage was hard work, physically and emotionally
But I did want my ex-husband to respect his marriage vow to cherish me
Instead our marriage was a game of oneupmanship and lack of engagement
It was made clear what my duties were....and he brought home the money
Obviously he was disappointed with his purchase!!!!

Guess that proves that in general, generalizations don't work, because that's sure not how it is around here! Big John and I are equal partners who practice mutual respect and compromise, my dogs are spoiled completely rotten and run the household, and cats are verminous feral pests to be trapped and turned over to animal control.

Nothing against anyone's pet kitties, that's just how it is in my neighborhood.

See, there's where you lose me. That "all" thing. Immediately makes any statement a crock. I don't think your survey sample is large enough to produce valid results.

And if you don't "get" women any better than you got that song, then whatever you're discussing, your wife is right again (and probably hasn't been wrong in roughly 42 years) so just go with it, it's for your own good.

Probably ought to give her full power of attorney as well.
