  1. OMG, did your father say this? Screw that. I hope you get out of there soon.

  2. might be funny in retrospect sometime?

    (((you)))

  3. Dear Patriarch,

    I’ll bring you this *middle finger salute*.
    That is all.

  4. It’s just a neverending stream of support and respect at your house, isn’t it?

  5. Well, honestly, does he think you’re going to turn up at home one day with a fish in a bag –
    “mum, dad, meet Glenda. She doesn’t say much, but she’s lovely – can I keep her?”

    *headdesk*

    I second Helen. And everybody else, too, thinking about it!

  6. Is it ok to say he’s a total bastard ?

  7. Is it ok to say he’s a total bastard?

    Sure. I tend to go for phrases about the person rather than their parentage though.

    It’s just a neverending stream of support and respect at your house, isn’t it?

    Well, I’m just lucky I get support from y’all. Thanks 🙂

  8. Been mulling over this post since I read it – I think the aspect that was eluding me was the “scale of human-ness” one. Bear with me. Your father is an old-timey patriarch. His comment is coherent with viewing females (your future girlfriends) as lesser than males (your non-future boyfriends). If you go any lower down than women on the scale of human-ness, you’re no longer human.

  9. Seeming as he apparently doesn’t see females as fully human, you’re in a bit of a quandry there.

  10. Cassie and Kim, that is what I thought when he first said it.

    Well, honestly, does he think you’re going to turn up at home one day with a fish in a bag –
    “mum, dad, meet Glenda. She doesn’t say much, but she’s lovely – can I keep her?”

    lol. I wish I had thought of that.

  11. Wow… that’s… special. Someone human? I mean, as opposed to???
    Does your dad hear himself when he talks? Cause mine has that problem sometimes.

    (((you)))
