Pookie would always say the truth, look at her face !
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us 1. When I am invited to a party and somebody greats me asking for news about my son and I really don't remember this person, because I rarely recognize a face, I can't say : I have never seen you !
2. When somebody asks me what I think about her new dress and it has horizontal stripes which makes her even fatter than she is, I can't say, you look like an oversized cow.
3. When I meet people I can't stand at all in a public place, I still have to be at least polite
4. When I go to a funeral and I know that my friend is not sad at all because her husband died (she had wished his death at least once a day) I can't go to her at church and say : Youpie ! he finally is dead ! No, I have to make a sad face and hug her while she squeezes a tissu against her (dry) eyes. At home of course we can celebrate the happy event (don't be shocked he was a monster !)
5. When I am invited for a supper and the plate really doesn't look very appetizing, I have to smile and pretend it is delicious
6. When I meet some VIP politicians of the city for an official event and I really cannot stand this guy I have to clench my teeth and shake hands with a friendly smile
7. When a mother proudly shows me a picture of her son, I can't say : it's a pitty that he is so ugly
8. When I meet somebody in the street I haven't seen for a long while and think she really looks like an old wrinkled appel now, I have to say : You really look great !
9. When sombody shows me his slides for one hour and you see only children or family in all situations and you have never seen them before, you can't say "that's boring can't you stop and show me something interesting ?"
10. When a mother praises the extraordinary qualities of her child and it is just rolling on the floor screeming and flailing furiously, I can't tell her that he is a spoilt brat.
11. When somebody tells me that she has died again for the 1000 time I can hardly say to her, but you are still alive.
12. When somebody tells me 3 or 4 times the same story I can't say "you told me that already 3 times" I just have to wait until it's over.
12.When a notorious womanizer marries a girl I know and she says at her wedding "with me he will change" I can't tell her that I have serious doubts.

Mmmm... and how about when someone posts in your blog -

Great Post!

I exercise for comments!

... can you go back to their post and say "you moronic imbecile... don't bother coming to my blog anymore if you can't at least read what I say and comment ABOUT it!" ... can you? Of course NOT! That would be EVEN ruder than the lousy commenter... hmmm?

happy and blue 2 said...

Very funny list. You are just too polite, ha,ha..

Miranda said...

Great list!

That's hillarious!

Happy TT!

Sanni said...

LOL - thanks for the good laugh, Gattina! I´ve enjoyed such a del-i-ci-ous supper some days ago =)

Did #4 really happen?!

Ich vermisse die Belgischen Pralinen auch bei meinen Belohnungen, aber ich befürchte, es macht im Moment nicht so wirklich wirklcih Sinn, oder? =)

christine said...

I work in public relations so I know all about "grinning and bearing it". Your posts made me laugh. I've been to enough boring family get togethers where I've had to endure really DUMB stories - that now I just make excuses and don't attend. Your post made me laugh! Happy TT

Darla said...

Oh, the curse of being polite! I often wonder what would happen if everyone said exactly what was on their minds--would we all eventually get used to it and get along just fine, or would we all end up as bitter enemies?

Caylynn said...

LOL! :D Too funny. Yep, sometimes we have to be polite and tell "little white lies". Thanks for the laughs. :) I'm also laughing at Melli's comment! :D

The cartoon is very cute too. :)

Of course Pookie always tells the truth - cats are incredibly honest. If they don't like you, they'll let you know! *grin*

Have a great day! :)

Raggedy said...

LOL!! great list, guess you're right about these situations! Happy TT, mine's up!

Irish Church Lady :) said...

lmao at your TT and Melli's comment. Way to let it all out Gattina! You rock!

Dragonheart said...

Pookie is very cute. :)

Your list was very funny. :) You humans can be so silly at times!

I think I now meow in English. My humans speak more English than German to me, so I think that's what I've picked up.

mar said...

I loved your list, I can't stop laughing. Loved Melli's comment too, should be included in the unofficial blogger's handbook!!

Amanda said...

LOL! I guess sometimes it is just easier to lie... they don't hurt anyone beside maybe yourself!

Mom's Secret Life said...

Too too hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

Starla said...

I can fully relate to 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 12. Oh man, especially number 5. I can't even count how many times I've been in that situation.

Happy TT!

Mags said...

Haa haaa haa! It's a pity he's so ugly! Funny!!!

Kai said...

Great list!

I like the funeral one - HA!

Carmen said...

one of the hardest things for me is to look at other people's pictures of their kids, because of course they think their kids are beautiful, but sometimes, love is blind. :)

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

i am too old to care and i say what i mean (most of the time anyway). it feels so good. see i just don't give a flit if anyone likes me or not. i really don't... and if i don't like a comment, i simply delete it. stick a red hat on your head, it'll help you along with this! now i don't mean i try to hurt someone, but mostly i am just brutally honest.

smiles, bee

ps: i don't have too many friends either! ha ha ha....

GreenEyedGirl said...

Mrs Lifecruiser said...

You know, on the cyber cruise, we can make all those walk the plank ;-)

Janet said...

Skittles said...

Angelo said...

LOL! Funny list, you're too nice Gattina! I bet it would be even funnier if you actually said what you were thinking...hehe just kidding, stay nice!

Marcia said...

I used to be that polite, still am. . . most of the time, but sometimes. . .

Loved your list though, (and that was not said to be polite)
