Men How Brave Are You ?

Men how brave are you ?

Are you brave enough to go to the boss ( no not your Mrs. lol that’s later )  your work boss and talk to him if something he is doing , or someone else is doing  is wrong  ? What if what is going wrong is not your fault  but maybe the fault of your  good mate and co-worker , or  maybe the boss himself is to blame  , what then  ? can you do it  ? Can you go in and say , hey boss , this needs to be fixed ? It would be very interesting  to know the  percentage on this as to those who would and those who would not .

Are you brave enough to walk away when there is trouble brewing and it is not your fault or it has nothing to do with you ? You would be surprised at sometimes   how much harder it is to walk away than it is to get into it . Not too many I suspect  could actually walk away  , it is just too easy to let  the aggressive side rule . That happens way too often these days , people are just so much more aggressive.

Are you brave enough to lend  someone a helping hand , even if you do not know them , or there is no reward for you ? Just to help them because it is the right thing to do  ? Or do you save any helping to just those in the family , or work mates , or drinking buddies , or friends ? Have you got it in you to do the right thing  , or is it all too much ?

Are you brave enough to help at the scene of an accident  ? or to try and stop a robbery  , or someone from doing the wrong thing,  or maybe step between when someone is being beaten up  ? Would you try and rescue someone from drowning , or  someone lost , or try to talk someone else out of harming them selves ? All of these things take courage and guts , do you have what it takes ? These days not too many do as the world now is all for  me, me , me, and never mind anyone else  .

Now here we go  ….. lol

Are you brave enough to upset your other half  ? I mean really upset her  ? Would you keep putting off something  you know you should be doing , would you do something she really does not want you to do ? How many times do you have to be asked  ? Are you brave enough to not help around the house when you really know deep down that she would love you to help , and that by helping you would make her happy ? Are you brave enough to just think ha, thats womans work ? Are you brave enough  to not go to the shops if she needs something but cannot go herself   ? I bet you would if she  was making something you really liked , but if not you would say oh leave it for now it’s ok .

Are you brave enough to risk having the various parts of your anatomy  re arranged  , or removed altogether  ? We know you like to keep things where  they should be , and working the way they were meant to , but it amazes me how many men  still flirt with danger  lol, yes Rick looking  at you now  ( again ) Sometimes  I really think men just don’t get it  , just don’t see how dam frustrating they can be  , even from someone who loves them to bits. They seem to make a habit of making you want to  take them to bits  , bit by bit  , and re arrange said  anatomy . It seems to take forever and 1 day to get through to men  that they need to be a bit more careful  , to keep things a bit more sweet .Do you think it’s bravery  , or just plain common sense to do the right thing for the good of you both  ?

Men can’t  live with them  …and the spoilsports  won’t  let you shoot em  …* sigh *


The Local Watering Hole

The  Local Watering  Hole , ever wondered why so many people go to these places  ? Before you say booze , let me say this  it is not the only reason  people  go there  .

At ours we have  some really lovely staff , there is cute Stevie  , bit too skinny tho  lol  , then there is the boss man a little more  err staid  shall we say , his name is  Jarrod  and also very nice , there is also some just lovely  women that work there , 1 of them is  Stevies mum , lol, poor thing , cos hes cheeky but we love him.

Then there are the meals, always top notch and very well priced , you could not buy the food ,cook it and serve it for how much you pay for the meals ., also you do not have to do the dishes lol a big bonus. Lunch time during the week is always fun as the workers in the offices  over the road all come over for lunch.

While they are there they can relax have a drink and a meal , also watch sports , or put a bet on  , or play pool, or keno ,  so many different reasons to go there , other than just the booze.  Some of the regulars that go there are really nice people  who just go for the company , and the booze is a bonus if you like  , they have a few then go home  . There is 1 regular  don’t  know his name but  will refer to him as  Rosco , lol, really nice quiet man . Then there is  Fred  , a real character if ever there was 1 , bit hard to describe him , best just to say if you met him you would understand  ,then of course there is Wayne , another  nice bloke very good to sit and chat to and have a drink with, but to be honest he needs a girlfriend , lol, any takers  ?? ( lmao sorry Wayne )

Trivia , trivia  nights are so much fun , we cannot get there as often as we like owing to hubbys shift patterns , but when we can we also have dinner first then play , we win it often which then pays for next days dinner  lol . The  bloke who runs it  Richard , is a right character  , he has us laughing so hard at times  , he is a stirrer of the highest order , which is why it works so well  I think. The questions  are quite hard too so if you think they are easy , just dont they are very hard at times , but when we win  I just tell hubby its a good thing we are smartarses lol or we would not win so often.

Right from the 1st time we started going there people have been friendly , even ones we have never met , they have no trouble talking to you over a drink . Yet when we were still in the  UK we had just 2 pubs we went to on a regular basis , and in the almost 6 years we lived there and went to them  , not 1 person ever spoke to us or was friendly , not 1  in either pub in 6 years , still cannot believe that  . We have met some real characters too  as mentioned just above  , some I have looked at and just shook my head and thought  huh ? as there is just no explaining them , lol, saw 2 like that the other  day amazed at how people dress or behave in public . The main thing is tho  that when ever  I go there someone always talks to me and for just a little while I have someone  ( other than myself ) to talk to and it breaks the monotony . Also the perving is great  lol …..

So before you just condemn  out of hand people who go to the pub or a club out of hand as being drunkards , think about  all the other valid reasons people have to go there . Our pub has  a huge screen  TV  for all  kind of sports  , love it , have watched a few games there myself . Cant say I have ever seen any real problems with people having too much to drink , it does happen yes , but usually ,thankfully, not when we are there  , it is a very well run and organized place. So before you judge people , or places , check it out  first , then make the right decision.

Funny How Things Happen

Funny  How  Things  Happen …

As those who read these blogs all the time will know my hubby and  I have had a fun ride in getting together , we have had lots of bad things happen , and we have overcome them . Some of you will also remember that 12 months on in our new flat we   still needed a lot of furniture , as owing to a huge catch up we have to do there was no  money for furniture .

Now to a funny thing  , we have been scouring shops, the internet , freecycle  you name it  looking for things . So far had gotten nowhere  , but last weekend another family  in the block of units we live in  was moving and  almost gave us the pick of what they had  , not quite but almost. So now we don’t have to go looking for furniture , it came to us  !! lol was great as we do not have a car , we now have all we need in that respect , great huh ?

I find it  funny that at times we stress and struggle  ( yes  I know  I do  lol )  to get the things we need  , but if we sometimes just relax a while , all the stressing sorts itself out , have seen this so many times in my life  I know it to be true .Have also learned    not  to listen to those who would pull you down , and tell you  nothing will work , it wont if  you dont make it happen , sometimes we can make it happen better  by doing nothing !! As was the case this last weekend , 1 of my sons was here visiting  and he and  I were just sitting on the balcony enjoying a chat and a drink  when neighbour from upstairs started moving out . All we did was ask if there was anything they didn’t  need may we have it as we still needed things , well from there it was so funny 2 little children from the family  had son laughing  as they talked to him, because they were over excited  and  talked so fast  I had no hope of keeping up lol  but he did. So with me on the balcony saying  yes please or no thank you  , and son at the door,  we were able to get all we still needed  and it was a riot as well with all the comings and goings . Took hours  but who cared as we were all having a great giggle .

Poor hubby was still at work and we never told him  , lol, I just sent him a tweet made to make him wonder what on earth we were doing  lol  ( sorry dear ) . By the time he got home he was completely  confused as to what was going on , then when he got to the front door and tried to get in  , he almost couldn’t get in !!  I know  we should have told him but it was so much more fun to see the look on his face when he walked in , just couldn’t help myself lol , well  at least  I keep things interesting for him , can’t have him getting bored now can  I  ? Would not be a good little  wifey  now would  I ?

It is going to be funny as well when  my brother  , who  I have not seen in over 15 years comes to visit , anything can happen  lol , got a feeling poor hubby might get a bit worried as to what we might get up to or into  while hes at work. Silly hubby should know by now that we got to keep the ship afloat  by teasing each other and making  it more exciting  , keeping him guessing  , too boring any other way  .

So anyway don’t get too stressed by things  you need , or want , or anything  , it is just not worth it , if it is meant to be it will happen , we have just proved that again.
