Sensory Impaired People are Common

Would you settle for a diaper-flavored cup of coffee day-after-day?
Would you purchase pants that slouched around your wiggles and hugged around your ribs?
Would you dare use deodorant scented with Grand Central bathroom scum?

No. You wouldn't.

So, why would you date someone who isn't sweet, doesn't fit you and makes you feel rotten?

Please. Tell me. Why does she stay with him?

Boyfriend-induced sensory impairment, perhaps? Has Romeo reached into Juliet's brain and hit the common sense switch to off?

Or as Dane Cook points out the stellar reasons women stay with their boyfriends --

"My favorite CD is in his car."

ooh! ooh! i know the answer to this one...

it's because the boyfriends aren't all bad.

that diaper-flavored coffee and nasty deodorant has nothing to offer... but maybe that boyfriend does.

NOT that i'm making EXCUSES i'm just pointing out that it's easy to be on the outside looking in, saying "what is SHE THINKING" but if you're not IN IT, you don't really know all the details.

(although there are certain things that shouldn't be forgiven, like suddenly being against monogamy or standing someone up on their birthday;)

Just because the coffee gives you the JOLT you need, is that cause to overlook doodie flavor???

Chrissie said...

unfortunately, yes.

(think of the sludge we make here;)

sometimes you just NEED a jolt from somewhere and you worry about the caffeine crash later.

Yes, our coffee is pretty bad, but luckily there's several other providers within walking distance. So get your shoes laced ladies and explore your OTHER options...

Chrissie said...

but those other providers cost money... sometimes we settle for free and easy.

unfortunately.

I once had a friend whose boyfriend used to hit her, and she insisted it was her fault. She "upset" him...

I then continued to probe and ask why do you stay with him? She responded with "because he's the best I'll ever find" WHOA!!!!!!!

I admit that he could be sweet and charming sometimes.. but she was constantly on eggshells hoping that she wouldnt say, or do, or WEAR something that would set him into a rage.

I refuse to think that any woman with an ounce of self respect would put up with black eyes for the simple fact that she's AFRAID to be ALONE... that her self worth comes from the fact of whether she has a boyfriend or not, regardless of the fact that he's a complete scumbag.

..But apparently some women thing that something is better than nothing, and are willing to take the abuse just to say they have a man.

Sick.

Sarah, thanks for the coffee comparison (I really am turning into a metaphor stealer!)!!!

And Vanessa, I hear ya!

I've had friends stay in REALLY BAD relationships with REALLY BAD guys who REALLY DIDN'T deserve them and it's completely frustrating.

But I try not to judge them so much as help them through it, you can't force someone to change their views on things but you can try and coach them along...

Yeah like teach them a mean right hook...
