I shall not even speak to another female, except as expressly permitted in writing below. I will not turn off my mobile after two pints, nor shall I consume above the allowed volume of alcohol without first phoning for a taxi AND calling you for a verbal waiver of said alcohol allowance. I understand that even if permission is granted to go out, my girlfriend/fianc้/wife retains the right to be ****ed off with me the following week for no valid reason whatsoever.

    Amount of alcohol allowed (units) Beer Wine Liquor Total

    IMPORTANT – STRIPPER CLAUSE: Notwithstanding the female contact permitted above, I promise to refrain from coming within one hundred (100) feet of a stripper or exotic dancer. Violation of this Stripper Clause shall be grounds for immediate termination of the relationship.

    I acknowledge my position in life. I know who wears the trousers in our relationship, and I agree it’s not me. I promise to abide by your rules & regulations. I understand that this is going to cost me a fortune in chocolates & flowers. You reserve the right to obtain and use my credit cards whenever you wish to do so. I hereby promise to take you to a Michael Bolton concert, should I not return home by the approved time. On my way home, I will not pick a fight with any stranger, nor shall I conduct in depth discussions with the said entity. Upon my return home, I promise not to urinate anywhere other than in the toilet. In addition, I will refrain from waking you up, breathing my vile breath in your face, and attempting to breed like a (drunken) rabbit.

    I declare that to the best of my knowledge (of which I have none compared to my BETTER half), the above information is correct.

    Hmmmmmmmm, me thinks you posted this in the wrong spot.........shouldn't it be in "The Big D thread"?

    Personally I see nothing wrong with this at all........maybe we should adapt it somewhat and make one up for strippers in the Firehall or on the trucks?

    Hey! How did you get a copy of this from my wife?

    I have printed this and will make copies.

    She has to know everything.


    You need to add a call clause.

    Such as location to be visited will be considered null and void in the event of a fire call. Assuming I have not been drinking and am in close enough proximity to respond timely and safely.

    I also made a copy and fired it around the office via email... However, methinks that perhaps you have had "Splain'n to do" at some time in the past. (As I am sure we have all had at one time or another)

    Kind of a pint for a pint thing. Hey Martin, how did things wind up for ya'll? It has pretty much fallen off of the news over on this side of the pond.

    Personally I see nothing wrong with this at all
    I don't have a problem with it either. Just so long as NO ONE attempts to drive home afterwards. It doesn't matter what time it is, call for a ride. I don't have a problem with that. I keep bio haz bags in my car just for that reason

    Actually I encourage the men folk to go out with their friends, male or female. It makes no difference. In my mind you either trust them or you don't. It's that simple. If you don't why would you be with them?

    Saying that you trust the boyfriend/fiancee/husband, but you don't trust the women or the people that they are going out with (heard this from other women I know) is nothing more then a copout and an attempt to hide their own insecurities.

    Men are not pets. They should not be kept on leashes. Or be guilted into giving the woman they are with a running commontary of EVERY last thing they did, where they went, who they went with, when they got back etc. That is completely childish, and if they are really that needy they might want to look at the state of their own self esteem, or at the very least go find some friends of their own. Smothering is not love.

    btw... this thread is hilarious, but if any of you actually do suffer like this. I am SOOOOOO sorry.

    I think some of my friend's wives must have a copy of this and must use it often. Damn I'm glad my wife is cool as hell.

    I've been married 8 years, have 3 small boys, and hang out with my buddies on a regular basis. I'm off every other Sunday, and on those Sundays during the NFL season I spend the day with my family. Around 7:30 or 8:00pm, just before the night game comes on, I go to a predetermined buddy's house. I have her blessing to stay the night, get drunk as hell, enjoy the company of my good friend's, with two rules...DO NOT DRIVE ANYWHERE and DO NOT CALL ME TO COME AND GET YOU!!

    She also, for the last 2 years, has graciously allowed me to go on an out-of-state golf trip with 16 friends, missing my birthday and our anniversary (2 days apart). My friends hold her in very high regard.

    I would never sign a deal like that nor would she expect me to. Oh yeah, I also tell her if and when I've been to strip bars. It's all about trust. Believe me, she gets nights out with the girls too. I'm all for equal opportunity.

    Default Cahones in Freezer?

    Does any one else have to ask permission to get your man parts out of the freezer prior to going out with the boys or is it just a local thing for me?

    Oh no it is not just you.

    They lovingly call me leash at my dept., because my old lady thinks she needs to know everything I do.

    I've seen this situation over and over again...in my municipal department AND among the wildland firefighters, who might be on fires for days, rather than hours. The spouse needs to know where they were, every minute of the response.....and why they didn't come home right away.

    This is common...not the exception. And it's not funny...it's sad. Some of these women need to get a life, trust their men....and loosen the leash.

    I was working 12 fires from a lookout tower....for 54 hours straight...and my lady wanted to know why I couldn't come home.

    Are you kidding?

    You know there is a remedy for guys with this problem, It's called, take the pants back and get a divorce, and then go find a real woman. OK a little harsh, but you know what it worked for me, my new wife is very understanding about the need for a man to be out with the boys.

    ah the beauty of being single ..... Happy Hour started at 1:45pm today hehehe

    I've never been in a long term relationship so I've never experienced what you guys are talking about.

    But when I do find the man of my dreams I will encourage him to have his nights out with the boys! I don't need to spend every single minute with my man! Mind you, some nights I may just want to come out with him when he parties with the boys! Since I'm not into shopping with the girls. LMFAO! Sometimes I might want to come and watch your baseball/hockey game. Sometimes I might not. Sometimes I might want to go to a movie, or bowling or to a hockey game or for a drive or whatF**King ever JUST with YOU! Now if I asked my guy where he's going and he says "out", sure, I might get ****ed off, why not just say "out to the bar with the guys", then you know where he is and its no big deal. Trust is one thing, but communication is important too.

    But the application E40 posted is funny, I've gotten that email a few times LOL
