Things you just don't get - Page 1421

Unless she's also paying for some of it...you are ring shopping. I guess some people really do go through the whole process together, but I don't get that either (I probably have some outdated gender roles in my head).

 

Everyone I know who went ring shopping together are divorced already.

I don't think they are actually physically shopping for the ring together (or at least I hope not...). I hardly see them as candidates for divorce.

Yeah...that one weirds me out too. You can say we're having a baby, but for fuck's sake, just say "she's pregnant"
But I guess this is the same person I posted in the other thread about who went skiing out west with his GF and didn't leave the green runs the whole trip because that's all she could do (it was a group trip where she knew other people...and he's a competent skiier)....for some people maybe "we" is the only pronoun.

+1. I'm bored after 5 minutes sitting in the sand, but give me a boogie board and I'll entertain myself for hours.

It's a little cheesy (and probably too PC) but I think it's reasonable as it emphasizes the man's role in getting the chick knocked up. Obviously "We're expecting" fits the bill without trying too hard.

IDK how you guys get bored at the beach. Maybe you guys just need better scenery.

I don't get people go into fugue state of exstelcy over the prospect of eating a bacon I mean yes it is a fine tasting nutriment but it's not that good.

I don't get why so many of the people in my office look up to see who's walking by as people walk around.

They're like the office equivalent of rubberneckers, except there ain't nothing exciting to look at.

I guess it's different in my case as they hear the authoritative click clack emanating from my AE Seconds. But everyone else walking by? Jesus. Just ignore them and stay focused.

Probly hoping the walking person has bacon to share.

This is the vast majority of people unfortunately.

^ +1 exactly. Those are the couples who also need the matching tracksuits and t-shirts so everybody knows they're on the same team. Ridiculous.

back around the turn of the millennium i once made sweet, filthy love to a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla at a little taco place in a little college town. as i sat hunched over my prize i became vaguely aware of being suddenly surrounded by hella super excited blonde girls. turns out the whole time i had been sitting next to brad pitt.

Where did voxsartoria go? I used to frequent SF very often around 2008-2009 and remember his witty remarks and admired how well dressed he always was.

I am aware his tumblr/website is still active but has he abandoned SF on his "voxsartoria" account or possibly has a new unknown username and just lurks instead?

I've only began to visit SF frequently the last few months but people like him, mafoofan, etc. made the site more entertaining in general.
