Kind of like spelling big words like "people" correctly?
 
2007-02-13 01:37:01 PM
shiat! I guess delete my Boobies since you all changed it.

I'd never delete your Boobies, sweet pea.

So if I nag at my wife to never again service me orally, she'll do it all the time?

So if I nag my wife to stop nagging me about playing videogames, she will thus nag me more, thus getting me to play more videogames?

Don't get married at all.

"My husband, while very charming in many ways, has an annoying tendency of doing exactly the opposite of what I would like him to do in many situations,"

Maybe it's because of your annoying tendancies?

I'd never marry an Attractive and Successful Wife

sorry, it ust looked like a funny word
 
2007-02-13 03:38:09 PM
nagger, please!

/Sorry it was impossible to resist!
 
2007-02-13 03:38:14 PM
I will always do the opposite that a nag asks. It's the only way to deal with them. Either that or act completely gormless. They hate that too. Women bosses especially nag and do it relentlessly. For some reason they just seem to be on a crusade to grind men down.

Mugato:

You're funny. They're never naggers when you marry them. But inevitably, something you consistently do will grate on them, and they will begin nagging about it.

For me, it's the laundry. I'm awful about it. I'll throw a load in the washer, and it will sit there for a day or two before I put it in the dryer. Then it will sit there another day or two before I fold it.

Drives her batshiat crazy.

Oh ho ho ho! That's how they get you. That part is not made apparent during the trial period. You have to make the purchase before you see that feature.

I've been telling my wife this for years. Despite offering abundant proof of this theory, still doesn't believe me.

The name appeared too quickly for the participants to consciously realize they had seen it, but just long enough for the significant other to be activated in their nonconscious minds. The participants were then given a series of anagrams to solve, creating words from jumbled letters.

A Cowboy was touring an Indian village and the Chief introduced his wife. "This is Three Horse" he said. The Cowboy asked if the name had some mystical or special meaning. "Yes" said the Chief "Nag, Nag, Nag."
 
2007-02-13 03:41:04 PM
I just say "I'll do it as soon as you get off my frickin' back, you coont!!!!" Unless she is pegging me. Then I just go "yes ma'am".

Now I understand what was going on with my filthy ex-roomates. "Can you be adults and clean up after yourselves?" lead right to a kitchen that looked like Fallout concept art.

// They were seriously nasty
// Three weeks of housecleaning and I'm still not done :(

I get nagged my fair share. My girlfriend is extremely organized, and I am the exact opposite, so it's not very hard for me to annoy her. Sometimes I will go out of my way though, turn a picture just off level, or turn one pillow on the sofa a different way from the others.

Is your wife a nagger?

No, but our last kid was, that's why I want a dee-vorce!

A nagging wife trained in psychology.....oh the horror, the horror, the horror.

Nagging is inevitable, especially if you have a wife, or a girlfriend, or a boss, or a mother, or a sister.

Amazing that 4 out of 5 of these are definitely women.

Just sayin

/hoping that neither my wife nor my girlfriend see this

Good way to establish your manhood, Shadowknight. Ruin your washing machine, get mold in your clothes, and infect everybody elses via the moldy maching moldy from the wet things you let linger in the washer. It's like you're Sean Connery or something.

So....in theory, i can start nagging my wife about giving me too many BJ's and that i'm tired of it....and then she'll magically start giving me more??? Is that how it works?

/never gets BJ's

Tanya Chartrand is a friend of mine. I'm surprised some of you haven't found her picture on line.

But this fact absolutely does not mean that reverse psychology will work. If my girlfriend says "go play Wii Sports, watch TV and don't pay attention to me", that's exactly what I'll do.

The key word here is "nagging". You wouldn't resort to nagging me about it if I wasn't already doing the opposite.

transcript of conversation with Oldsbone (Mr. Bari Saxy) last night:

Me: Hey, Hon, could you help me get the girls ready for bed?
Him: Yeah, I'll be there in a sec.
(15 minutes later, no movement from him)
Me: Hey, the girls are done with their bath, could you bring me their pajamas?
Him: Sure, just let me finish this Fark thread first.

/Damn Fark

For fark's sake, you're even nagging in the thread woman.

my current GF is so afraid of being a nagger that she just hints and prays and hopes i can read her mind to figure out what she wants.

then gets pissed when it doesnt happen, and nags
 
2007-02-13 04:05:27 PM
"Honey, I think you let me put it in your pooper way too much.
Seriously...can't we just cuddle?"

I only nag my boyfriend when I've spent three hours getting the house clean and as soon as he gets home his shoes and socks get tossed off, usually in the doorway, and stay wherever they land unless I move them. Sometimes I let him trip over his own shoes six or seven times in the hope that he'll make the effort to push them two feet over to the wall, but you can probably guess how well that works.

/at least he always makes it a point to say how nice the house looks before he starts dropping articles of clothing all over :)
 
2007-02-13 04:08:04 PM
Do the nagger's bidding, but also do one or both of the following:

- Fark it up spectacularly. I mean so spectacularly that professional and/or emergency assistance is required during the aftermath.

- Biatch and moan about it all day and all night for a solid week (bring it up at least once every couple hours).

You won't be asked/told to do it again for years. Possibly forever.
 
2007-02-13 04:08:18 PM
You know... you could think of it not as "nagging" but rather "begging" you to break your disgusting habits and learn to behave like a relatively sanitary human being.

If it doesn't work why do you do it?

Nagging never works. What you gotta do is get sneaky and mess with their heads so they *think* that taking your grandma out bra shopping was really their idea in the first place. Works for me. I never nag. :)

That says much about you. No-one has listed habits an yet you assume all men are dirty.
