"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I'm not married, don't even have a girlfriend, but two days off is two days off.
You can get married for free on Mondays.
So Monday morning, go to city hall, get married for free, enjoy two days off
How does taking up on a free offer make me cheap?
Of course I'd have to find a girl who doesn't want a big fancy wedding first
get married just for 2 days off, even without the big wedding what is the cost (consider TCO) compared to 2 days unpaid leave?
Even if it's 2 days a year, 2 days a month, the unpaid leave is still the cheaper option.
heck, runny nose go and see the doc (can claim back the doc fees too) (- most if you look sick enough on a Thursday will give 2 days.)
You seem to have a strong opinion about this.
Perhaps we can get married (not with each other) and discuss this over our two days off?
At this point I'm not even sure if I'll ever get married.
Maybe to please my future girlfriend, although I certainly hope not.
I'll never get marriage, spend weeks planning the whole thing, be at the center of attention for a whole day, take pictures in fancy clothes (and I'm not even a fan of wedding dresses), invite people you don't like but somehow must invite, and pay a king's ransom for it all.
Added value: absolutely nothing
Unless you get married for free and take the two days off
You get some tax deductions (why don't I get those as a single, isn't my life without the love of my life already miserable enough!?) and some legalities are automatically arranged (like inheritance).
Until you change your mind that is, in which case it's all very difficult and expensive to roll back.
Not being an inconsiderate a**hole is not the same as walking on eggshells (at least I hope so)
I hope so for you too. But what will you do when Madam comes home with a new dress, makeup and hairstyle (all in garish colors) that remind you of a circus clown? Try to bring her back to her senses? Or better play along and live with your clown? I would not, despite knowing how well that will go. Don't ask me if you don#t want to hear my honest opinion. At least I'm sneaky enough to save the circus clown as ammunition for the drama that is sure to follow.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I'd probably tell her it's not really my taste, but that she looks beautiful anyway, and that she should get it off so we can get it on
Now turn it around, you come home from whatever and there's your lovely wife/girlfriend cheering you on.
If whatever you did was a success she can reward you handsomely, but if whatever you did was a failure she'll be there to comfort you (and somehow those are the same thing)
And yes, there's the occasional fight, but those should be rare.
And making up is just the more pleasant
At least that's how I think a relationship should be like (and unfortunately, mine weren't all like that).
Now I've decided that I'd rather be alone than with the wrong person, but rather with the right person than be alone.
Lots of people are rather miserable together than happy alone though, which is what gives marriage such a bad name.
