Wives Don't Like Our Time On This Forum?

Sun Feb 01, 2004 11:52 am

I'm getting some hell from my "significant other" for spending more time on this forum than watching Sex in the City. Does anyone feel my pain?

It's almost as good as watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy...

My wife just asks, why do you go on that website after being at work at the airport already for 8 hours. I guess I just can't get enough.  Nuts

My two favourite shows, Queer Eye and SATC!

My husband complains that I spend too much time on here occasionally, so it's not only wives!
But that was when I ruled the world

The reason I am here as much as I am is I am not married and don't need to get back to work till March..Life is good in the Nevada desert!!

Thank God I travel to ORD and DCA each month! My gal would kill me for being on this forum. Don't want to know how much this evening will cost me, but I'm fortunate the weather inhales vigorously!

I got forced into watching Queer Eye once.... it was sort of funny, but I really did feel the need to watch a John Wayne or Clint Eastwood movie afterwards...  Big grin

A bigger problem may be when they realize they can access the forums and start reading your posts!!! (Membership to that club isn't exclusive to BigphilInNYC)
I get the impression some women don't like to think they're being upstaged by anything that's gonna take their man's attention away from them.

My wife doesn't really mind about me spending time on a.net.

I guess she figures I could be doing things a whole lot worse.

Yeah, my "better half" just doesn't get it. Now she just walks in and dumps our four-month old daughter on my lap to look after, which makes it really hard to type (especially now that she has discovered that the keys make a funny sound when you hit them).

My wife is the same way. She doesn't understand why I am on this forum or A.net itself for so long. I am thankful to have this forum because it seems almost nobody I know enjoys and appreciates aviation like I do... and I am even talking about people I work with AT THE AIRPORT!!! This is THE one place I can go and talk with people who truly appreciate flying!

And just like ANX4fishing said.. "Hey, at least ya'll are not surfing porn."

My mum and sis think im mad for spending so long on this site, and at times my nephew has been dumped on me and he LOVES playing with the keys, turning the monitor on and off, and crashing planes when he grabs the control stick when im playing FS

It the first thing i do when i get in from work,and somtimes spend till 2am browsing the site.

I agree with Gulfstreamguy, not a lot of people i know are into aviation, so this a great site
Where does the time go???

Being a professional in aviation is not just a career, it is a lifestyle. We have to put up with a lot of crap, but it still pulls us back.

My fiancee makes some sly but harmless comments when I connect to the net and open two windows: one for what I need to do and one for what I want to do. A.net is in the latter group.
