    My wife is a character sometimes

    Funny story I thought I'd share.

    We were at the bank yesterday waiting to fill out some paperwork to consolidate some of our debt. While we were sitting there the wife looked over and asked:

    "You don't have your gun do you"?
    I looked down "What? Did I forget my pants again"?

    She rolled her eyes...

    She said "Well I thought it being a bank and all you wouldn't bring it in here"
    I glared at her...
    She said "What"?

    To which I responded "Ya you're right, banks never get robbed... ever. Might as well go put it in the car"

    I got the eye roll again.

    She knows better, but once in a while I'll get statements like these.

    Sounds like you handled it well...

    Then again, I get a lot of eye rolling myself

    I'm sure she's a peach. However, life's pretty simple, really.

    A. Felons' Union Local #308 doesn't send calendars of events, each year. I'm assuming the same is true in your area.

    B. Things happen. What will be will be, though you do get a shot at changing reality through your contributions. No doubt aboutsky. Being utterly unprepared to survive until the cavalry arrives, though, doesn't help anyone but the felons.

    C. Your children expect you to use your brain; to be there to protect them and guide them; to set an example. God helps those who help themselves, though that help isn't likely to magically appear at the moment crime finds you. Deal with it.

    D. We were all born with defective crystal balls. There is simply no telling when or where crime will find you, but it can be anytime, anywhere.

    Eye rolls and deep, deep sighs are what tells us we are keeping our wives/girlfriends on their toes! Sometimes it is difficult to find ways to remind them that they still have more work to do to make us civilized. I think we are doing them a favor when we do the things that make them roll their eyes. It is our duty!

    It sounds much like the type of conversations my wife and I have. Her eyes roll like oranges on a slot machine....

    My wife carries all the time and I can count on her.

    She believes in being ready.

    Currently I'm not married, but my Italian fiancée of five years is already conditioned. I get the rolling eyes, the squinting eyes, and even the disapproving head tilt with arms folded. Despite the fact that she resides in Italy doesn’t matter. They are all hard-wired the same!

    I figured that since we've got a mixed crowd that y'all would have left it hangin' there, so to speak. Ah, me. What a crowd. Perhaps I should just have phrased it this way:

    It would take a crystal ball to see into the future and thereby avoid crime. Since the ones issued to humans in this life are all equally defective, you never know when or where crime might find you.

    If for any reason those disapproving gestures become italian profanities, feel free to PM me and Ill gladly translate them for you.
