I think my avatar burns impressions into peoples' brains that overwhelm my prose.




On the topic of "epic," that is a word for people that have a poor vocabulary and feel no need to be realistic about evaluating things. I'm surprised that you put me in that camp.

Really, you're surprised? I feel like 99% of your posts you're just being severely uptight, didactic, or a bully. You've mentioned sports on some occasions so I kind of picture you as kind of one of those meathead bros who lift too much and don't do enough cardio. "Epic" usually goes with the territory.

it's clearly more of a chip on the shoulder thing.

I bet this sounded epic in your head.

I don't know what you mean by epic.

pB: "be right back, got to take an epic dump"

A_Y: "you don't know what you mean by that."

pB: "see that kitchen scale over there? grab it, and come with me..."

I know the phenomenon people are referencing with the "work wife" thing, and there is at least one "couple" I can think of that would fit it, but it's not a thing for me.

Also, maybe I'm just outmoded here, but the word "wife" has value to me that goes beyond "female half of the relationship."

This.

The whole concept really annoys me and I've never quite been sure why it does. Maybe just because all the people who have ever mentioned having one are really irritating people.

The people that do it also seem to get some borderline inappropriately close relationships with their "work spouse." Seems unhealthy for your marriage to get emotionally intimate with someone of the other gender who you're spending many hours a week with, but that's just my take on it. Shit, just calling them your "work spouse" indicates a weird level of intimacy (shifting colloquial language notwithstanding).

I said you don't bang them, but there is clearly this attraction based on the intelligence of them and the "office hot" appearance of them (which can differ from real world hot) and you just like hang out with them and are clearly chummy.

Why would one be chummy with a woman if one is not banging said woman?

My comment was in answer to the thought the joy of working was not being with your wife. I take no joy in not being with my wife as she really is the person I enjoy spending time with more than anyone else.

This is the sign of a man who knows how to pick wives. My wife is in Giantfatsoland (U.S.A) for 10 days, I'm miserable.

One person who is no longer with us vs. an office that openly endorses work-spouses.

No comparison.

Como on, you are always whining about the morons you work with.

Work mistress?

I think in general I try to avoid people and be the person to move out of ones way so often I am creating this annoyance we both have to endure. I should just start walking completely straight.


To the right. Ever to the right. Never to the left. Forever to the right.

Except in civilized places.
