Pet Peeve... [Nov. 27th, 2001|03:59 pm]
Kurt Onstad
Okay. Let's start with this: I'm thin. 5'8" and I weigh 115 pounds. But, this doesn't mean that I'm fragile. I'm a lot stronger than I appear to be, I don't bruise easily, I've only broken one bone in my body (my big toe when I rear-ended a catering truck) despite the many spills I've taken, and I have a fairly high pain threshold, I think. So, why do women keep telling me "Oh, I'd break you," like I'm made out of glass? What evidence do they have to support this theory? I'm not saying I'm David Dunn from "Unbreakable," but I'm not Elijah either (although, coincidentally, my legal name is David and at one point, I was going to change my name to Elijah instead of Kurt...Never noticed that before until now...). So, anyways, what I'm trying to say is, don't assume just because I'm smaller than you that I can't handle what you dish out...

break you

Perhaps they meant like a horse? Or it could be financial. In any event, fair warning is a good thing, but you're ultimately responsible for your own decisions. If you've demonstrated a willingness to be broken, that's really where it should stop being an issue.

This is what I'm saying...

I have a pretty good idea of what will and will not break me, both physically and emotionally speaking. Financially, it wouldn't take much... :( But, I seriously doubt that's what they are talking about, especially seeing some of the guys they choose instead. It's just a stupid excuse, and I would prefer women stop using it, and instead tell me the truth, whatever that may be.

Hmm...

Have you tried punching them in the head? An act of violence might make them see you as more of a physical presence.

...no, wait.

Sorry. Just got back from a troubleshooting job, still in pure logic mode. Don't take that as relationship advice.
