My wife asks for some sausage gravy and biscuits last night. So I get up at 7 am on sunday morning slave and make some great sausage gravy and biscuits. What does she do get's a bowl of cereal.
Sounds like a woman! lol
HEY, HEY OK NOW! ever think she may have CHANGED her mind since last night, MAY, just maybe, you should have ASKED if she STILL wanted to eat that.....but what do I know...I'm JUST a female....
Sounds like my 15 year old. It's almost Exactly what he did yesterday morning, he had cereal. The only difference is that the alternative wasn't sausage gravy and biscuits, it was scrambled eggs with cheese on them and bits of ham mixed in kind of like an omlette. Anyway, I overlooked it because he did eventually agree to have the eggs, just not with the cheese or ham and because he's 15. If he was a full grown adult, and did that kind of thing repeatedly, I'd say he's entirely too immature and would be left to prepare his own meals every time not matter what until he showed more maturity, more appreciation and more respect.
And Dawn, it's fine to be a female, fine to change your mind if you please, but it is the responsibility of one who makes a commitment and then changes their mind to let the person they committed to know of their change. It is unreasonable to expect anyone to be a mind reader. Spit it out, say what you mean, what you want or don't, otherwise do NOT complain and DO expect others you basically lied to to be disappointed in you. But what do I know, I'm just a guy. LOL
did she KNOW he was gonna get up and make the breakfast the next morning...if so then YES she should have said something, but if NOT...don't complain.
*agrees with dawn* if she didnt know he was going to get up and make the breakfast she wanted last night, how can she warn him that she changed her mind. i think it was ver VERY sweet of vulcan to do that. and if adam had done that for me, i would have eaten what he made whether i wanted it or not. but, tgix, its not at all her fault or her responsibility to tell someone that her mind is changed about breakfast when she is unaware that it may be made for her.
Read the original post. She ASKED for him to make it. If she didn't know that he was going to get up and make it after ASKING for it then she is beyond stupid and uncaring.
"its not at all her fault or her responsibility to tell someone that her mind is changed about breakfast when she is unaware that it may be made for her." HUH????? She asked for it. So explain HOW she should be excused for not being aware that it would be made for her?
I work with people all day long, as I imagine many of you do too. If I ask someone to do something for me, say to put a batch of widgets in a certain place, and then I come along later and trip on them, I have NOOOOO right to complain that they were put there. I have EVERY expectation that they would be placed there. Conversely, if I ask someone NOT to place a batch of widgets in a certain place, and I come along and trip over them because they put them there, I have EVERY right to be upset that they put them there. How on Earth is that so hard to understand?
It all goes back to what I was trying to explain to Walter some number of posts ago. There are things called responsibility and accountability. We are (or at least are expected to be responsible for our actions. AND we can expect to be held accountable for our actions.
What gives with this stuff about we can do whatever we want as long as we can use enough words and argue long enough and wear down the other party so that whether right or wrong we'll "win".
Give me a break.
You make a commitment - you abide by it. If you don't, expect to be held accountable. End of story.
Wow, Mad, where do you live? I'm in Louisiana, where biscuits and sausage gravy are very common, but I didn't know it was common across the country. I'm behind the times, huh? We also eat biscuits and chocolate gravy -- WOWWY, WOW, WOW!!!
I'm sorry about all your hard work for your wife -- you need to tell her you want a steak and baked potato for dinner one night, then come home with McDonald's!
I appreciate your efforts anyway -- it's becoming a thing of the past to hear about husbands who will LISTEN to their wives, and then actually DO what their wives have requested!
well, she should have eaten it OR at least told you she didn't want it anymore, since she put the sausage out for you.
"you need to tell her you want a steak and baked potato for dinner one night, then come home with McDonald’s!"
I love it!
I'd do it too!
my thing is that she asked for it the night before. was she saying. "in the morning, could you make me some biscuits and gravy?" if thats the case, she should have eaten it. otherwise, if she wanted it that night, and you waited until morning to make it, its understandable that she may have changed her mind about it and just wanted cereal at that point. but i wasnt there. personally, i would have just eaten it. that was very nice of you to make it. *kicks your wife* :-D
conana, you've been wearing those ass kicking boots lately haven't you? LOL
nestle9 i live in central California and every saturday my friend and i go out for "our" breakfast of biscuits and gravy. it's so popular in the valley that it's even served at Mcdonalds. shame on your wife Mad Vulcan, if she laid it out for you then she should have eaten it. next time invite me and nestle9. we will enjoy it with you.
Gravy on cereal sounds good!
I make tomato gravy also, but have never put hamburger in it. And we don't eat ours at breakfast TIME; however, I do make breakfast for dinner, and we will eat tomato gravy then. I usually cook eggs, homemade biscuits, hashbrowns or smothered potatoes, and tomato gravy. Umm. Now I'm getting hungry!
