Aha! I see it now!

No wonder Mr. TBH and I broke up!

I was doing it ALL wrong!

(Okay, that 'article' probably wins for "most outraged shouting at the screen inspired by something on the internet" for this year, methinks . . . )

Today I took pleasure in some 2005 Montepulciano D'Abruzzo that I nearly forgot I had. (Got it at Trader Joe's, I think.)

Today I learned that one week after the damage, I'm still prone to fits of grief, but that much can be healed in that time.

The fact that there's a link to an Amazon listing for a how-to-pleez-yer-MAHyun-type book makes me fear that it is, in fact, quite serious.

The opening paragraph just kills me, though. It kinda reminds me of the time my manager at Big Box Bookstore tried to intimidate us into better customer service by pointing out that "jobs are really hard to find right now." I shit you not.

Then again, it wasn't long after that incident that I landed the paralegal job I have now. The one that pays twice as much, with far less aggravation. So you see what can happen.

The only way I would follow those rules if I was paid to be someone's girlfriend, and I guess that would make me a hooker if I did.

The things people will put in a book just to make a buck. Yeah. Even better, the things that people will spend their money on, cause you know there are people out there buying it and telling everyone just how great it is, lol.

1. Give him credit for your orgasm.

Why? I have plenty on my own with no man in sight. I think I have figured this one out on my own.

2. Make him feel like a hero.

Adults should not need praise for taking out the goddamned trash, for Pete's sake. On the other hand, if he wants to wear tights and a cape, so be it. I won't point and laugh TOO much.

3. Create a shrine to his manhood.

DUDE! That is just creepy. It's a TV Trope (or something) that the icky, creepy, homicidal stalker-type has a shrine to the object of obsession. Normal people do not do this. Also? Hope you don't have a cleaning service or nosy parent, because I don't think they will see a shrine full of candles and nekkid man pictures as being psychologically healthy.

4. Never refuse your man’s offer of sex.

Tired? Too bad! Menstruating? Sick? Just came back from a funeral? Just do it! Your man just made a chauvinist pig remark? He smells like baboon arse? Spread 'em!

5. Make your man your highest priority.

I'm not into kids or sucking up to bosses, but adults can take care of their own needs. Sorry, infants can not. In such a case, mature adults learn to deal with disappointment and the responsibility that children require from you. And I'm not losing a job to go suck up to some dude, either. Unless he plans to gift me with a couple million dollars, strings-free, in which case I can work when I choose. The sad thing is that you can't count on even a husband to stick around forever, and slacking off at your job means you may not progress in your career, and if you do get a divorce, you're screwed.

You they ask a man to ignore his job, or neglect his children in favour of his wife's demands? Hell to the naw they wouldn't.

I think my screaming at the screen just clinched this article's award nomination. My brain hurts now.
