“Please forgive me Mel”

Says the signs on the way to work.

Has anyone else noticed the signs on the drive from Lanyon to the City?

They start off saying “Please forgive me Mel” near the roundabout just past Lanyon shops, then another two a bit further down toward tuggeranong saying, “I love you Mel” and two more on the overpass near the RSPCA on the Tuggeranong parkway.

What do you think guys, should Mel forgive the creator of these signs?

I think she should…

give it a break GranMa

Granny Granny 9:22 am 26 Sep 08

My biggest random stupid act was purchasing a reclining armchair from a place that didn’t home deliver. It was for Gramps’ birthday, so I couldn’t even call him to come help me!

However, with the help of a shopping trolley, a couple of random strangers, a bit of electrical cable, a plank, a three year old child and some awfully good luck, I managed to get it safely home and through the doorway. It then took four rolls of giftwrap to cover!

He then had to stare at it everyday for about a month without a clue what it was ….

*maniacal laughter*

I’m still pretty proud of that effort, and as a gift it was also a resounding success!!

This guy is clearly under the misapprehension that some males are under. Do stupid things that you know your chick wont like and then think you can get her back with a bunch of flowers. When that doesn’t work, escalate the pressure with public apologies and begging forgiveness. That way people will think she is a b*tch if she doesn’t take you back.

My advice to Mel would be “don’t take back anyone who would put this much pressure on you. If you have said goodbye he needs to accept it. Either way he needs to stop putting your private life on show for all of Canberra”.

My advice to Glenn is to “back off her immediately and give the woman a chance to think. If she wants to forgive you, she will. If she still wont take you back, be a man and accept it, reclaim your dignity and move on”.

I am, however, alarmed at Glenn’s desperation and hope his friends and family are keeping a very careful eye on him.

Much wisdom here, Fabforty.

Does this sound familiar?

“But [insert name here], I’ve just [insert details of random stupid act here] for you to prove my love. Doesn’t that prove anything to you?”

“Yeah, it proves you’re a bigger tool than I gave you credit for being. You’re an oxygen thief, a fark whit, and you’ll have to work hard to get that paint off your hands into the bargain. But zip on down to Bunnings, because it’s Tool Time!”

Dear Mel,
There are only two real rules in life the first…… never ever go back. We all know the reasons why. If you break up with someone you do it for a very good reason. SO why after the dust settles would you get lonely and bored and most importantly outside the comfort zone and get back with someone.

Over is over

Guy or boatshed or whatever well done you lose clap clap now f off no-one cares.

Of course what is going to happen in the real world is that Mel after a couple of weeks will get bored/lonely and be so used to the habit of having someone else that she will inevitably contact before mentioned wanker and next thing you know all is forgotten and no one will know the difference.

It’s called tail end theory.

There are probably some things that can be sorted out with roadside signs and forlorn messages through blogs. Can’t think of what they may be, but they’re probably not the things that Dr Phil does.

For heaven’s sake, talk to a counsellor. Alone or together. Emotional upheaval is not a spectator sport.

Spill- we need details

Aurelius Aurelius 7:02 pm 25 Sep 08

ESC, If you know something we don’t (and let’s face it, that’s hardly a challenge!) then we want as much detail as we can get!

ESC ESC 6:49 pm 25 Sep 08

Trust me, she is not taking him back.

tylersmayhem tylersmayhem 1:57 pm 25 Sep 08

has the man not heard of ‘flowers’? works every time…

Apparently not in the case of Paul the Stalker. If $1,000 worth of them don’t work – I dunno what else will 😉

astrojax astrojax 1:36 pm 25 Sep 08

mel should walk back to him, say ‘i did it, i won back my heart for you. now, where’s my grand?’ then, with cash in hand, go back to weeping in the dimly lit bar avoiding johnboy’s pleas and wait til boatshed gets a new kayak in…

Is I were “Mel”, the painted signs would reinforce my she left the “scene” man. Not only has the dude been a c**khead, but he’s illegally causing damage to public property while drawing attention to her private life.

Mel, if you’re out there – take these signs as a warning of something much more serious!

The signs were painted on pieces of board so I can’t see what damage he’s done. Good on Goathead or what ever his name is for trying!!!!

Lowey Lowey 10:07 am 25 Sep 08

So, Glenn has been entering too many different boatsheds? Boom, tish…

tylersmayhem tylersmayhem 9:37 am 25 Sep 08

I’d like to think/hope that Mel will not be posting anything on here. I imagaigne she’s got a hell of a lot more class than that.

Thumper Thumper 8:12 am 25 Sep 08

If I were Mel I would have;

a) Changed my name
b) Changed my face
c) Changed my hair
d) Bought a small place in the country in Swaziland

Yes, if Mel wished to speak to him he wouldn’t need the signs and go-betweens. He will probably need to accept that the decision wasn’t made lightly and he has really hurt her. Salvage what lessons he can, and try again when he feels ready. I am sure she has his number if she has a change of heart.
