Bob T said:Well, a little story about using real names. I'm 42, and I don't ever remember my Dad calling my Mom by her name. It was always "hey!", and she would get up and go!
They don't make good women like that anymore lol.
If that doesn't bring the non posting Women out, what will!
At dinner a few years a go at my folks, my Dad asked around the table who wanted more wine...He asked everybody and when he had his list, he turned to my Mom and "asked" her to get the wine for everyone...I smiled and turned to my wife, who replied before I could even speak with a look that said "dont even think you'll ever get away with that". That's a common occurance at my folks. Its never done in a disrespectfull way, but I think its just the way it was with the old italian family's. Personally (also looking around for wifey) I dont see anything wrong with it.. 8-[
