Especially when the bricks are yellow.

Pack your bags and move to the city. You're missing nothing there at home. Edmonton is quaint and real pretty, but wait until you're out there on your own. You'll be fighting with her mama and her papa. Family life will be one big pain. So, you should move to the city.

I kind of love that.

M-I-L seems like a PITA and I wouldn't be so eager to go back to visit.

Igloo turned out cool (visually and literally), but the family wasn't kind to the chap visiting -13 weather? Really? :: frowns: ::

" . . . this needs to be something that's got some meat to it."

Mom, shouldn't you let the daughter decide that?

Next time, I'm pretty sure he will spring for a hotel.

When inside the igloo, I then offered my girlfriend to have sex with the visiting priest. When he declined my offer of traditional Inuit hospitality, naturally I was forced to kill him.

Not to worry, though. When Quinn the Eskimo get's here. Ev'rybody's gonna jump for joy

"It wasn't presented as an optional thing."

Henpecked little submissive, isn't he? "Maybe if I sit in the snow for a week and do what I'm told, they'll respect me..." Man card Revoked. Respect not received.

That's impossible. Everyone knows Canadians get their milk from a bag.

Fark is so far behind Reddit it's sad. This was out like two weeks ago?

The tone of that whole thing was kind of weird, although it says that he's been with his girlfriend for four years now, so who cares what Mom thinks? Plus--five week visit, during the winter? I certainly hope he has something to do besides sit around and visit with the in-laws, or that visit would probably end very badly.

Yep. I was ok initially with mom planning this whole thing as a wacky winter thing, and was gonna give points to boyfriend for keeping the peace (and continue getting a piece) and earning girlfriend mom points. Then I saw that one sentence.

Boy? Run!

It's how you survive a trip to the in-laws. I had to survive 5 days once and built a shed in the backyard to store my girlfriends/now wife's things. Started as a box and ended up with stone foundation and hand fitted shake siding. Looked like a really nice outhouse when I was done. Still there 12 years later through huge snow storms and a couple Nor'easters.

It's pretty awsome.

Meeting the parents for the first time after dating the daughter for 4 years ?!?

And then it is for 5 weeks - wow.
 
2013-01-17 09:11:48 AM
Girlfriend you say.... I would have thought this got the unlikely tag.

Oh you poor child. How do you survive, looking at fluff stories that are not hot off the presses? You should probably just stay on reddit, so that your intelligence won't be insulted anymore.

This story was on Fark Jan 6. Different link, and it was on the geek tab, so no one saw it. I wasn't going to mention it, since it's a cool igloo, but it's a repeat.

he should have laughed out loud hysterically, taken the last swig of his beer and then while still trying to control his laughter said "yeah, um, this ones empty so fetch me another one"

Good thing they didn't use the milk bags.

This somehow seems worse than being a software guy who's always asked to fix her family's computers for free.
