    God, do you ever need to get a life. Some of us have better things to do
    than root round the NGs looking for other things someone has said. Oh, and
    taking your grandson to the park. Try not to fall in the pond. On second

    True. And acks instead of ays, and emmas instead of ems. Maybe all that
    started because their telephones weren't very clear. ;-)

    Hannah quoth:
    Mmm. Sweet.

    So *I* need a life, but it's ok for *you* to slang off in a bad mood.
    And, you don't want anyone to make you responsible for what you say, or
    to find examples that make a twit out of you - I can fully understand

    I note you completely avoided the point - what was wrong with 'the
    grandson'? Any comment on different terms having different meanings in
    different regions of the world? Or do you think the whole world
    revolves around you?

    Thanks for the ill-luck wishes. I *could* retaliate by saying that I
    hope in turn the insurance company renegs on your trashed white lens.
    But I wouldn't stoop to such childish behaviour*, as it would just make
    me look silly.

    * or behavior/humor.

    I'll be the child then, somebody has to.

    Hannah, if you are like this when you are *not* on the rag, please
    refrain from posting when you *are*. Oh, and buy hubby a keg of beer.
    He definitely deserves it. You won't have to explain - he'll

    Love & kisses.

    Hubby? Never. I would never demean myself by stooping so low.

    Show me the bit where I said there was something wrong with "the grandson".
    You're too late, whether you decide to retaliate or not granddad, they paid
    up this morning. Direct transfer, straight into my bank account, every

    Well, that should cheer you up a bit. You still haven't enlightened us
    on what we should substitute for 'the wife', or 'my wife'.. I really
    would like to know. Not that I give a hoot about being politically correct.

    Show me the bit where I said there was something
    EXACTLY. You didn't (just like you have avoided *every* difficult
    question). So that means that term is OK with you, then? But NOT `the
    wife`? Does everything have to be explained to you in such painstaking
    detail before you finally get it?

    By the way, I am PARTICULARLY offended by the tone in which you said
    'granddad'. Hereabouts, them's fightin' words.

    ((Can you detect the sarcasm, or did that whoosh over your head too?))

    So, I'm not going to retaliate, I shall simply sit here and continue to
    chuckle over that wonderful, and revealing statement of yours:
    'I AM in a bad mood tonight, but by God I get the respect I deserve at

    You can carry on without me now, but my special thoughts go out to
    your.. er.. 'partner' (is that OK?). Methinks he needs all the help he
    can get...

    My wife goes ballistic if called 'old lady', but, as I point out, she IS
    an old lady.. sigh.

    Of course people who are old or getting old don't want to be
    reminded.Does she call you her "old man" ? When younger people say the
    "old lady" and "old man" it doesn't mean the person is old, but means
    they are the "better half". Now how about the term "better half" - I
    like that one :)

    Cathy, Apr 19, 2005

    Ron Hunter Guest

    I DON'T like that one (better half). I am not a half, but a whole
    person. My wife is, likewise, a whole person. We choose to share our
    lives (for 37 years now), but we are each individuals. And I AM an old
    man, and proud to have survived this long. The usual reference is 'that
    old fart'. Doesn't bother me in the least. In my mind, I am still 25,
    and I can't reconcile that with the old face I see in the mirror.

    You have a grandson. You said you were taking him to the pond or somewhere.
    Ipso facto, you are a granddad. I call my granddad granddad; he seems fine
    with it.
    I detected it. In full colour.
    Chuckle on. I'm pleased to make people chuckle. Even chortling or guffawing
    is fine with me.
    The word partner is fine. Personally I call her my 'significant other'. She
    uses the word 'partner' all the time though.
    I'm planning to let what's left of this thread continue without me too.

    PS: I hope you didn't actually fall in the lake.

    She wouldn't know what to do with it.

    I believe you have explained the situation adequately. But you still
    didn't answer the question.

    Haha, old far is worse than some of the other references thrown around
    here. :)
    Good way to look at things.

    Er, okay. Good luck with that one then. Statistically, 100% of gay &
    lesbian marriages in the US fail, and you don't appear to be good
    example of a tolerant partner.
