Men Are Geeks

So why don't we take the kids to the river for a swim, take the 4WD through the river and think we are cool men???

How about we do it with four kids in the truck??

Shall we misjudge the depth of the river and plough nose deep into a big hole?

Then we could pass the older three kids out the back of the truck then completely forget about them while we concentrate on getting the three year old who is screaming out??

Whoops, what if those three kids that were already out weren't thinking straight in this sort of panic situation and instead of walking back from where they came in the river walked to the closest side which was straight into the big hole?

And let's just say that the 7 year old who couldn't swim got picked up by the current and swept away?

Wouldn't it be lucky if he managed to grab the front bullbar so he didn't drown??

Wonder it it would be a good idea to get Jules to come get the kids, she can cross the bridge and see her 4WD nose deep in the river and not freak the fuck out!!

Then shall she arrive just in time to see the truck pulled out with help of a fellow man and then see the doors open with cascades of water waterfalling out??

Wouldn't it be priceless if it then cost $1,152 to fix??

MEN ARE GEEKS!!

Oh my fuc*ing God!!!! That is just awful. What do men think of? What are they thinking? Does macho take over or something. It makes me angry to read this let alone how you must feel.

Oh shit!!!!!!!!

Why do they such dumb stuff???

Luckily the kids are all ok (they are aren't they?). You know the men will think it is f*&@ing halarious & a great story to tell at the pub!!!

Mine went through the "puddle" & had so much fun, thought he'd go back through it from the opposite direction...... No kids, but similar situation where you open the door & water pours out. I have to admit it was his car & I sat on the bank & pissed myself laughing while he dug himself out. Glad the kids are OK. Sorry about the repair bill!

Jo said...

Oh Jules! That is definitely a 'priceless' situation.

As above, so sorry about the repair bill!!!!!

OMG that is full on! Now that I know the kids are safe, it's kinda hilarious in retrospect. Fark - lucky!

Tania said...

Geeks? OMG - surely you're too kind, i'd be sure to find another word for them in that situation.

Main thing is that the kids are safe - can only imagine how scared they must have been - poor things!

Steph said...

Not Geeks. Geeks have brains! These dudes were obviously sharing a brain cell..
As long as the kids are alright, that's the main thing.
