When I saw this, I made that noise where you scream and laugh at the same time. Someone needs to write that ending to a romance, STAT.

    It will take up all of my time…to research untraceable poisons while I plot your demise.  Oops, did I just say that aloud?

    Oh, the smugness in his voice!

    Oh, the twittery brainless pleasure in hers!

    I think in some way, shape or form this has been done many times in romances.

    Reminds me a bit of You’ve Got Mail.
    “Oh, sweetey, it’s OK that you and your corporation destroyed my family’s wholesome business – let’s move in together!”
    That whole idea really killed my pleasure in that movie.

    My, what is that taste in my mouth? Bitterness?

    You sir, deserve a good cock punch.
    But I don’t want to break a nail.

    “Even if i wanted to say no I couldn’t.  You’re not supposed to say no to a detective.”

    He could be asking her to marry him, or to become the bottom bitch in his new prostitution ring.  Either way, you’re not supposed to say no to a detective!

    Aw, she played him, plain and simple.
    He’s obviously not a very good detective since he can’t figure out that he just promised to support her while she stays home with the pool boy.

    Although this fellow meant well, obviously he would be executed by any American woman in the US today.

    For example, my Mom was a homemaker, and a really dedicated one. And, she loved my father dearly.

    However, had he ever been so presumptuous to get her fired from anything without a full discussion, she would have been very upset and angry and even perhaps throw a wet sock his way.

    She demanded equality in the relationship. She also handled the family budget.

    She wanted no part of a man who would not believe in his heart she was his equal or even better.

    She was a great lady, and I loved her to the day she passed.

    That’s the exact same premise of, like, 82% of Harlequin Presents.

    Aw, she played him, plain and simple.
    He’s obviously not a very good detective since he can’t figure out that he just promised to support her while she stays home with the pool boy.

    Awesome!

    Yes.  The Laugh/Scream.  And then some sputtering.  Wowee.  One of my grandmamas stopped working to be Mum, but it was her choice…and not just because she was getting married.  It was the impending arrival of my mother than made up her mind.  hmmmm….50s, you blow my mind yet again.

    This is exactly how I’m going to have the hero propose to the heroine in my series! Thanks, 1956, for helping me see the light!

    Only if the pool boy is Greek or Italian, please, Tamara.

    rotflmbfao!!! This reminds me of my grandfather’s manager handbook from the steel mill. It’s from 1943 or so talks about how to deal with women in the workplace. For example: 1. Always be sure to compliment her appearance. They are working an ugly job in a tough environment and need to feel pretty. 2. Watch your language, women are very sensitive to cursing and other crude talk. 3. Refrain from yelling or raising your voice to them. It will make them cry. A crying employee is an inefficient one.

    My sisters and I laughed til our ribs hurt. MamaNice: Love the cock punch comment. Made my morning.

    Had to come out of lurkdom to comment on this wtfery. My boyfriend looked so shocked then laughed so hard at this that he is definitely getting the good sexxin’ tonight. This would be the ending to the epic known as:

    The heavily insured asshat detective’s future virgin widow

    I’m still interested in what her job was.
    If she was the president of a company, buster would have some explaining to do.
    If she’s a toilet cleaner in a blind man’s prison I’d hug him too.

    I got nothing, but I’m sniggering over the awesomeness of the bitchery, especially the book titles.  Keep ‘em coming!

    OK – that one made me LOL so loud I scared the dog into barking.

    I don’t have my headphones with me, so I listened to this one aloud in my small town’s local coffee shop, then proceeded to laugh at every single comment for about 8 minutes. Now I’m probably known as the town freak.

    That whole idea really killed my pleasure in that movie.

    I would argue that the ending of YGM is actually perfect for the movie it actually was, although not for the movie is claimed to be. The film is disingenuous pretty much from the first frame. It’s supposedly about how sad it is the The Shop Around the Corner is going out of business, but it’s actually pro-huge corporation pretty much from start to finish. No amount of Ryan/Hanks charm could make me feel anything but annoyed with it.

    After all, the movie starts with Meg Ryan complaining about how her indie bookstore is struggling—-while getting her coffee from Starbucks for craps sake. There’s so much product placement in the movie that the Starbucks cup should have gotten a cast credit.

    This clip is right up there with Where the Boys Are for its combination of WTF-ery and train-collision fascination. Because OF COURSE, what man would want Yvette Mimieux after what that Yalie did to her on Spring break? And Paula Prentiss was too tall for anyone except Jim Hutton. And Delores Hart was too much of an egghead Russian language major to ever go on a date, except with George Hamilton. Grrrhhh.

    The ‘50s and ‘60s: Can’t stand ‘em, can’t shoot ‘em.

    Nice play on the pool boy, Joanne. We’ll have the last laugh.

    Secretary or typist, naturally. It suits a woman’s sensibilities, you know.

    For more laughes click on future fashions predictions, the man of 2000 will have a phone and radio on him, so far so good and then small pockets for “candies for cuties” OMFG – now that is sexism.

    I swear to god, several of my brain cells just died in horror at the she WTFery.

    Cara McKenna: 
    Of COURSE the pool boys must be Greek or Italian.  Are there any other kind?

    That’s “sheer” by the way.
