"I am done dad...F this marriage BS..."
"Well she wants to get this car cover...I told her it's a bad idea and that I am right about......."
"What? No son...No....That'll never do...Your days of being right are over...Done..."
"What do you mean by that?"
"Look son, if it ain't going to cost $20,000 or someone get hurt or killed over it you just say "Yes ma'am" and let it ride..."
"Are you serious..."

"We have been married since 1963 and we have not had a big decision yet..."
"So even if we are right???"
"Yep...Just let it ride...Like I said, as long as it ain't over $20,000 or going to cost someone their life..."
"You know how your whole life you kind of thought you were kind of smart? Well read?"
"Well son....You are getting ready to find out just how big a dumb *** you really are..."
"Yep...He taught me...Now I am teaching you...."
Just passed twenty years and like my father I make all of the big decisions.....We just don't have any big decisions to make...
Then 1st Lt Stauffenberg showed up: 100% Puerto Rican. Spoke with a PR accent so heavy even us Amis had trouble understanding him sometimes. Turns out his grandfather was a German seaman on a merchant ship that was in a Puerto Rican port when WWII started.

Back to the fight....
In bed with the whispered words, "your sister is better"! Couldn't hang on for 8 seconds!
On a side note, if a man says something, and a woman isn't around to hear it, is he still wrong?
