Theres Just No Pleasing You Women :-)

Post by peakfreak »

OK, So I was paddling the other day with one of the girls from the CC who was saying she needed to lose some weight. Why, I don't know as she is only probably 3 stone soaking wet.
So I showed her some stamina paddling exercises and said a couple of times that these exercises would burn fat off in no time at all.
What did she come back with? "Are you saying I'm fat!"

I give up!

Speak for yourself ;)

I have long learn't neither to agree or disagree with such subjects, instead an incoherant mumble and an offer of a good cup of tea usually suffices.

Nope, you're right there! you could've just said 'certainly not young lady - I believe you have a lovely trim figure but YOU implied you may feel a little on the heavy side, I was just attempting to assist you in your quest to shed a little unwanted weight'. Or the other approach could have been 'well stop putting so much in your gob then' which would likely have been followed by a paddle shoved up the proverbials!

I can think of lots of ways of burning fat - they don't include paddling exercises though. Woo hoo!!!! ;-)

In have never met a female yet who was happy with her weight, figure, hair, skin, etc, etc, etc, I could go on and on, it is best just not to go there, your just opening yourself up for trouble. In addition, I am reliably informed that a female can 'never' have too many clothes or shoes and my observations suggest that they get more excited about a new handbag than we do about a new boat?

Some wise words from Neptune, however, I am proud to say that I have more boats than handbags.

Absolutely not!!!
Im not really sure but do women get sleepless nightsand day dreams in lessons over a handbag? ;)
I think it is because you know when a new boat is coming your way but with women, everything a spur of the moment thing!!

You have much to learn young padawan!

Well I also have more boats tghan handbags and love them far more than any item of clothing- apart from prehaps my corset and shoes- well maybe I love my heels a little : p, but I will happily spend hours in Whitewater and hate clothes shopping. So don't tar us all with the same brush!

You should have just said "I don't know, I hadn't gotten past your big nose"...why do most women hate their noses?

Corset... high heels... and a paddler.

You all know what's coming next boys and girls.

That's right!

Another female with more boats than handbags!

I'm currently debating my shopping wish list: Happy2B helmet; Mitchell paddles; tent for sea kayak; dry suit.
Hmmm... no handbags, heels, make-up, or fashion clothes there.
We are not all the same, just as, I am sure, all you guys are not lecherous brutes, who can't answer the question "does my bum look big in this" properly.

No bigger than it looks in everything else.

Or should she ask "do these jeans make my bum look big?"

"No!... all the icecream you eat makes your bum look big"

It makes women so much more comfortable to know that clothes don't affect how they look...I'm just that sensitive a guy I suppose....

Could you tell us the right answer then so that next time we're asked we don't get slapped.
You'd be doing the world a favour!!

I opt for the politician style answer of 'your bum looks lovely in that' that way you get out of an awkward question with a sort of compliment but no actual answer, direct answers are dangerous, they tend to be wrong!

The fundamental problem is that on the whole (yes there are some massive generalisations coming up) blokes do not understand women but like to think we do a little and women do not understand blokes but are sure they do totally ;P

I think this validates the expression "Women are from Venus, men are from Mars."

Further proof must be that women could only put up with us men by originating from a planet where is rains sulphuric acid. They're made of sturner stuff. Don't mess. :)
The world is unfair, but as long as it's unfair in my favour I don't mind.

It wouldn't matter even if the ratio were inverted. There's plenty of Rainsley to go around, girls ...

Has anyone else noticed that Rainsley has become a comedy genius recently? Over the last week there's been some proper laugh out louds!

Awesome!
