“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…

My partner and I have had a torrid amount of stress and finally last week that stress got to us. Melissa called it off just when we could see the finishing line from the stress.

give it a break GranMa

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.
