View Full Version : NO MAKE-UP! and it's MY FAULT?

This is Angie's last week teaching of the school year. Today at her middle school they had the traditional "COMPETITION EVENTS". Kids from 6th thru 8th enter track and field events and things like basketball shots.

She came downstairs from getting ready in her YELLOW (her team colors) tye dyed shirt, those capri levis and tennies....looking cute as always. I did notice :mag: she wasn't wearing make-up so I sked her..."Are you in the events? this year?"...she used to be in the softball game when they held that in the past.

"NO, I am just sitting on my butt in my lawn chair under my umbrella."...humm..OK, so I figure since it is an outside day...no need for make-up...she doesn't always wear it...as on week-ends...running...etc.

I load up her chair, cooler, umbrella, etc. Then give her a kiss as she exits the garage and closes the door.

About 4 minutes later she comes :frypan: busting through the front door of the house...yelling...."WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME I DIDN'T HAVE MAKE-UP ON?" :mad: ............

I keep quiet :ziplip:...like I really have something "bright" in my vocabulary to follow up that question.

Where did I go wrong?

Unfortunately you are in a no win situation! My poor DH Ryan encounters this lots. I now know (by the look of confussion) when he is thinking ...To say it...or...not to say it...what is the lesser of two evils AND which choice will be the shorter visit to the dog house!

:lol:

Although we often don't post in the same areas I just knew this was your thread before I saw your name. You make me smile.

Firstly, your problem started way before today. You see, you made the mistake of being born with testicles. :nono: Having stated that fact, unfortunately there really isn't much left to add. You are doomed to many more days of asking yourself the very same question. :yes:

I do commend you however. Your silence shows that your past experiences with these things haven't been totally in vein. :bravo:

Searching for the answer to questions like "Where did I go wrong?" :dunno: is like searching for the meaning of life. :chin: If you come up with a good answer for either, let us women know b/c we can always use a good :rofl:

(Just kidding, I think you are great. Dude, there was no way out of that one!)

So then your advice JULIA...aka...biker ma...would be to PURCHASE A CUSTOM DOG HOUSE?

Awwwwwww, bless!!!

That's certainly a no-win situation, Gary, my friend!

NO-WIN situation....hummm...sounds a lot like T-BALL where everyone ties.....no one cries after the game...you call that fun?

YES I WAS...HOWEVER ANGIE RECEIVED THOSE AS A WEDDING GIFT! :nono: Having stated that fact, unfortunately there really isn't much left to add.

I do commend you however. Your silence shows that your past experiences with these things haven't been totally in vein. :bravo: wHEN YOU HAVE BEEN KICKED AS MANY TIMES AS i HAVE WHERE THOSE TESTICLES USED TO BE...YOU LEARN TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

You should have responded with "Why didn't you remember to put makeup on if you wanted to be wearing it?". At least, that's what I would have said. ;)

Gary so sorry about your situation! But, you have learned to keep your mouth shut, so hopefully she will not be mad for long...and you could point out that you "Didn't notice!"

I, on the other hand get the flipped side...I don't usually wear makeup, so when I put it on my DH always asks why I am so dolled up...I just tell him that I am meeting my boyfriend later...like I have time for that!!!

I did compliment her though...she said she did 2 cartwheels for the kids....her "tradition" on game day...I told her that was good "for her age"....I remember when she did 5!

She hasn't said much to me tonight...thought it was 'cause of the LAKER game...not the game...she could care less...it's my "swearin'" that makes her mad....like the dogs "know" those words!

Custom works well for Ry. He drives transport. Therefore his dog house is speced out well and is multi purposed. Earns a pay cheque:carrot:, hide away from kids:devil:, and a cozy place to sleep when sentenced to the dog house.:doh::rofl:

Not being too bright I mentioned that I DID notice she was naked on the face!...

Doesn't matter to me if she has a boyfriend as long as I don't have to leave my recliner to get him a beer!

And by the way I am NOT SPEAKING to you since you haven't joined my last 2 5k'S!!....;)

Dear Gary -- there is no "right answer" to your question. However, had you said something like "I was speechless in awe of your natural beauty" might have covered it (but I think she's much smarter than that!!! :D)

On our 10th anniversary last year, being a SAHM I tend to wear comfy clothes most of the time -- so that evening when my husband got home from work, I was dressed nice, hair done and makeup on -- thinking we might do something nice (drop the kids at a babysitter, dinner, etc.). So when my lovely husband walks in the door, he says "what are you all dressed up for??" Do I give him credit for noticing or pack his bags for forgetting our anniversary -- I'm still deciding......

Not only is she smarter...she is more used to me saying stuff like...."Hey Babe, you're butt doesn't look too big today."

My mom got mad at me once when she forgot to put on makeup before work. Honestly, she woke me up 2 mins before she had to leave and I didnt even notice, lol.

You should've said something sweet like.."you look more beautiful without makeup" or something like that. Thats how my dh tries to save himself, lol.

The amount of jewelry I have on hand totally depends on the amount of allowance Angie gives me!

Oh there is no win-win situation at that but I was reminded of a good story. A few years ago I was visiting a doctor once a month for a little while. Between two visits I dyed my hair a tone lighter than my natural colour so I didn't expect men to notice (my dad, brother, 7 male cousins and 12 guy friends proved my suspicion correct). Anyways, I go to my doctor's appointment, open the door and he immediately goes "Katerina, you dyed your hair. It is so beautiful".

I give a smile and go "Thank you doctor, you are the first man to notice. I am fluttered."


He looks down then and grumbles "My wife has trained me."

I am appreciative of the very fact that you noticed she was not wearing any make-up! My husband says I look the same with or without make-up and doesn't notice if I'm bare faced. Now he is either not very observant (He isn't) or I am a very plain woman (I like to think I'm not, especially with my make-up on!)

By the way, he doesn't even notice when I get my hair cut, highlighted and styled. Now I try to mention that I am going to get my hair done the night before. I think I have him trained now to say upon entering the house that night, "Dear, your hair looks great!"

I almost always notice Angie's color if she changes it...can be blond...red...brown...sometimes if she just gets a tune-up I may not know.

I like her hair short or long so it doesn't matter much to me...

now then she wants me to cut off the moustache I have had for 36 years!!

You need to be ready with a comment such as " you don't have make up on ? I didn't notice because you always look beautiful to me".

As a wife it could be two things I think. First, many women consider their make up as part of their wardrobe and feel naked without it. To some women NOT telling them they don't have make up on is equal to them NOT telling you, that you forgot to wear pants and are about to head out the door in your underwear. Since MOST men don't wear make up, and I assume you do not, they don't equate a lack of make up with indecent exposure...they probably equate it with something less important like not wearing a necklace. Either that, or she was flustered about something completely different and chose to use you as a punching bag and blame you for something that is not your responsibility. Regardless, I do not think either of these are your fault. Is there something you can do? Hmmm...Maybe if you can figure out what is the reason for her being angry, (is it a simple difference of opinion on the importance of make up? Or is it that she is using you?) then maybe you can come to a mutual understanding.

It works both ways, Gary. Today it was my fault that DS forgot to "do his hair" before school. This was discovered in the car on the way to school when I noticed he still had a little dried drool on the side of his mouth (I have to remind him daily to fix that!--you'd think he'd notice when brushing his teeth!!).

Since MOST men don't wear make up,

Since you're from So. Cal. I won't make any assumptions.:s: My roomate's boyfriend moved in w/ us for a month once when I was about 23. He ran out of hairspray and used up in 1 week a can that I had for over 6 mths and would have lasted another 6.

Also, there is nothing you can do to figure out Angie's reactions to any given situation and be prepared for the next one. Next time, you'll gently remind her about her make up and still get your head ripped off for even noticing.:headache:

:listen:WE WOMEN JUST WORK THAT WAY!!!!!!:yes:

Angie here-

I WAS KIDDING!!!

Yes, I left the house without make-up (scary), and yes, I "blamed" my husband for my absent-mindedness, but it was all in fun and we both got a good laugh from it!!
