I said Im starving...and Dp said "You look like your starving".
Is that an insult?

Would you have been less insulted if he'd said, "you look like you'll never starve"?

PinkTulips · 26/02/2007 12:53

no... sounds sympathetic but hard to tell without seeing the way it was said.

ScummyMummy · 26/02/2007 12:56

was it said in a sarky you look fat way?

charliecat · 26/02/2007 12:57

It was said sarky.
I would have been less insulted if he had of said that HD, at least then he would have been being honest, instead of saying that and then saying it wasnt meant as an insult.

personally i would have slapped him anyway lol

charliecat · 26/02/2007 12:59

I have asked him to repeat it the next time someone says They are starving, because I dont think he we will see...if its not an insult he will have no problem in saying it will he.

in that case smack him.... twat!

HappyDaddy · 26/02/2007 12:59

If he was being sarky, I'm amazed that you must be the only woman not equipped with a quickfire jugular slashing reply. Kick him in the shins .

Good Lord. You wouldn't last 10 seconds with my DH. If only his insults were so uninsulting.

HappyDaddy · 26/02/2007 13:01

cod, don't beat around the bush, eh?

charliecat · 26/02/2007 13:01

Ha, it's no worse than what he said about me. Cheeky sod!

ScummyMummy · 26/02/2007 13:03

I think this would get a haughty toss of the head with a thank you very much if it happened in the house of scum. I would be secretly hurt though.

HappyDaddy · 26/02/2007 13:03

charliecat, you should have told us that at the start!

charliecat · 26/02/2007 13:06

What did he say to you hunkey?

OP posts:
charliecat · 26/02/2007 13:07

(I was also going to take offense at the lack of postings after I said I was a 14)

OP posts:
HappyDaddy · 26/02/2007 13:08

A 14? You don't look like you'll ever starve!

Something about boobs hanging out the bottom of my trousers.

charliecat · 26/02/2007 13:09

Oh yeah..PMSL...cant belive I forgot about that PMSL However, that is far from the truth, so that was funny? No?

OP posts:
hunkeydorey · 26/02/2007 13:13

I reckon that's nearer the truth than you not being starving. He's very free with his insults isn't he? lol

Jillyadoodledoo · 26/02/2007 13:13

This was just at the top of the convos list and all I saw was
"borderline cod. size 14"
I thought that there was some kind of cod comparison "I am boderline cod, a size 14" "I am far away from cod, a size 20"

So glad that I came and got that into context - thought it was another in joke
