OT Your opinion?
On a 3-day weekend a while back I went to a singles event at a beach
On Saturday a woman at least 30 y.o. had heard that I lived in the
same city she did, and asked me for a ride home on Monday. (Most of
those there came from my city or another one.)
I said, "Sure. I drive a convertible."
How should she have interpreted those words?
She didn't say anything about the car in return. Come Sunday, we left
at 3 or 4, on a beautiful summer day, and as usual for me, I had the
top down. My friend who I came with was in the passenger seat and she
and a girlfriend were in the back seat. She asks me to put the top
up. I said, "I told you I had a convertible."
I figured, Why would I mention that if I wasn't planning to put the
top down? (With the top up, it's like any other car.) She had two
days to get a ride with someone else if that was a problem. I would
have looked for a ride for her, too.
Maybe she had never rode in the backseat of a convertible before and
didn't think it was a problem. If that is the case, she learned
something didn't she?
Or, she is a controlling bitch that figured you would obey her
She is 30 y.o. and single, she obviously has issues.
Since there were others in the car, I would've taken a vote to see
what the others wanted.
What did you do?

"...obviously has issues..." ????
Disgusting, patronizing, opaque, egotistical. Never heard of a woman
aged 30 and single BY PREFERENCE?! You need to widen your macho
Singles weekends, in my experience, aren't heavily attended by people
looking to stay that way. If you rearrange your epithets the first letters
spell DOPE. What I don't get about the whole tale of ragtop woe is how did
she get there in the first place? Why not go home the same way?
I'm just saying . . . (-:
I dunno. I think wives (or husbands) are like children and pancakes. You
have to throw the first one away.
Personally, I tell women who plaintively moan: "Why are all the good men
married?" that it's marriage that makes them good!
A woman should look at a potential mate as a source of raw material, not a
Men CAN be trained (with, admittedly, varying degrees of success) to not
throw their socks on the floor, make rude bodily noises in a public venue,
ogle large-breasted waitresses, and bathe regularly.
A woman who knows this trick will test the applicant during the courtship
phase. She might say: "Darling, it really frustrates me when you're late
picking me up" and see how he reacts on subsequent get-togethers. If he
continues to be tardy, he's probably not EASILY trainable. If, on the other
hand, the issue never comes up again, she can rightfully conclude that he'll
be equally pliant when it comes to cities to live in, asking for raises,
buying her a dog that will fit in her purse, dressing in pastel suits, and
other little things that please her.
I think that I've done pretty well with my first and only. Met in '62,
married in '67, took her to the US in '69. So what works for you (the
"discarding") might have been because you needed more patience in training
As they say, YMMV ...

Well, before 9th grade she was a Texan, so she's not exactly unfamiliar with
the South[*]. She's still a citizen of that country, I think. ;-)
