Strange observation this morning

courtesy of Bing imagecourtesy of Bing image

I’m getting my donut and coffee this morning at Dunkin Donuts when I notice something you don’t see every day.  A lady in semi clothed swimsuit pulls up in her min-van, greets a guy, and they both get in his Maserati.  Her vehicle was an older beatup looking red Dodge Caravan, probably worth about $4,000.  His car was a newer looking Maserati GranTurismo, probably worth about $150,000.

Now I can be as male chauvinistic as the next guy, but I thought this was quite unjust.  Guys, I know we can be such a selfish cheap bastard sometimes, but you got to take care of your matriarch.  If you can afford to drive a $150,000 sports car, at least get your wife a top-of-the-line Odyssey or Sienna!  Don’t be such a penny-pincher when you can afford not to be!  I know I should not judge people and maybe I should simply assume the Dodge is their beater car while HER Maserati is in a repair shop, but I find that scenario hard to believe.  Other than that, donut and coffee was pretty good 🙂

    Or you could look at it the other way…they are seeing each other…and she likes him because of (ugh!) his money and his fancy car…which is what most men believe to be true. They might not be married at all.

    Was she hot? That could explain his attraction to her. Most men really don’t care what a woman does for a living and being successful generally is not a big factor to men in how they choose women, although it’s a factor in how women evaluate men.

    • August 16, 2012 at 2:23 pm

      You know, I did think of that as a slight possibility but it didn’t make any sense. First off, he was attracting everybody’s attention with the Maserati, and why Duncan donuts of all places? lol. They also did wear wedding bands, so I assumed they were a match. The woman most definitely wasn’t ugly, I’ll leave it at that…lol.
      Yeah, you are probably right about wealth not being a huge factor for most men. Although I do wonder how fulfilling and happy my life would be if I didn’t have to work and my wife brought home the bacon…hahaha

    Well, I mean, if my wife WAS successful and was still the same person she is now, that would be ok. I just think that most men don’t care if a woman is a lawyer or a waitress, as long as she brings to the table the things that they want in a woman — including time. Women kind of the opposite. A Maserati?? A total “panty-dropper” anywhere he goes. Almost wouldn’t even matter what the guy looked like.

    Well, it’s possible that they are colleagues and having an affair. A DD’s might be a good place to hide one of the cars for a while….

      Which is why I always chuckle when women who don’t have men and are in the workforce and have some success like to say that “success intimidates men”. Bull. Men like a woman who is attractive to them, who is loving and kind, and who treats them the way they want to be treated. No matter how successful or unsuccessful they are. Women look at men in a different way. As much as women accuse men of looking at women as “sex objects,” women are equally as shallow as men by being guilty of viewing men as “success objects.”

      But I think both these positions are largely wired into our psyches….And the carousel goes round and round.

      • August 16, 2012 at 3:34 pm

        I guess I can neither prove or disprove ‘success intimadates men’ theory, but I have never met a guy that has said that as the reason for not liking a woman. Attraction is a very tough thing to explain and everybody will probably have different version of it.
        Sounds like you’ve got lots of experience with relationship theories and, as you said, shallowness is probably a human quality and not a gender quality.
        Your analogy of the carousel is pretty funny and sad at the same time. Hope yours is spinning at a steady rpm with no surprises!

      • August 16, 2012 at 8:09 pm

        I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with you here… whenever I see a guy driving a Maserati or some other fancy car, I think, “He’s got to be a colossal jerk.” I know a lot of other women who feel the same way. Women who aren’t shallow idiots won’t be impressed by that sort of stuff.

        • August 16, 2012 at 9:58 pm

          Madame Weeble, this is suppose to be your rest day!! what are you doing out and about??!! lol As I mentioned in your blog, I can’t believe you’ve been having nonstop days of interacting with 100s&200s of comments every day and you still coming out to support your followers like this, unless something happned and your dream isn’t coming true tonight like you wished on to us…lol
          I do know some of the guys that drive a nice exotic car like that, and they all seem pretty cool, and they all have really beautiful spouses 🙂
          Maybe these men behave differently with other men 🙂

      • August 21, 2012 at 10:48 am

        According to some surveys, the majority of Generation Y and Millennials would rather have an iPhone/iPad than a fancy sports car. I honestly don’t know any girls who gives a rats ass about a car. With the exception of maybe one of my mom’s co-workers, a woman in her late 40s who have been divorced multiple times. Today, younger girls would either not notice the guy in the Maserati or roll their eyes at the pretentiousness. I think the days of impressing women with cars are past. Although I don’t think it’s easy to impress women with electronic gadgets either. One time, some guy once tried to win me over with an iPod. I just laughed thought it was pathetic.

        There is no doubt there are still many shallow men and women out there, but there are assholes everywhere. Which is why I only surround myself with non-shallow friends. None of my guy friends, who are all decent, kind men, would ever tolerate being with a woman who is only interested in his money or success. Similarly, most of my female friends are very ambitious and/or successful women who just want a guy who supports them. I honestly don’t know any guy who is intimidated by success, or any woman who would let a guy stop them from achieving success. I might be wrong but, I think that’s a generational thing. As we achieve more and more gender equality, more young women have the opportunity to be rich and successful, and the stigma of dating or marry a man who is less successful is slowing fading.

    • August 16, 2012 at 2:56 pm

      woaaa…I wouldn’t go as far as a lawyer…lol. I’m not sure about being married to somebody that argues for a living, and that goes for both men&women…lol
      But thinking back to why I married my wife, I didn’t care about her education, occupation, & wealth. I actually proposed to her without knowing any of those information…lol. She specifically asked me if I wanted to know, and I told her I didn’t care as long as she wasn’t a lawyer…lol.
      My buddy, Big Ben, is considering purchasing a Corvette for that specific reason that you mentioned. Not sure if he will attract quality women, but I’m sure he’ll get qty with it.
      I just cannot believe DD is an ideal spot for such covert operation. Its the only place in my town that serves fresh coffee and donuts every morning. EVERYBODY goes there. It is analogous to John Edwards getting busted in that famous Beaverly Hill hotel, where all the paparazzi are camped out..lol

  3. August 16, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    Okay Chris I am going to go with a completely different scenario…

    The Wife gets a phone call and Hubby says, “Honey you’re not going to believe it! The boss has a meeting and is letting me take his Maserati to pick up the new client at the airport. He said I could I leave early and take you for a spin. I know you’ve got your garden club meeting, but what do you say I meet you at Dunkin’ Donuts?”

    The Wife responds with, “OMG…is that cool or what, so you there!”

    Just a thought…but it actually happened to me once except the boss asked what I wanted for my birthday and I said I wanted to take my wife to lunch in his one of his Vettes. He laughed and thought it was a great idea. So I took Susie to lunch while driving a screaming red Vette with cold black interior. The only downer was I nearly crapped my drawers because I was so scared someone would run into me before I got it back to him.

    Be encouraged!

    • August 16, 2012 at 3:51 pm

      YES, YES, YES!! Thats another real good logical explanation of what went on. Who better to celebrate such momentus occasion with, than with your one-and-only 🙂
      That had to be a really memorable moment for both of you! I can only imagine what my wife would say if I asked her to meet me at Duncin Donut and I pull up in a $150k sports car…lol.
      On a side note, I can’t believe I survived 2 straight months of best sporting events on the planet! I hope you are recovering nicely over there, too.

      • August 16, 2012 at 6:14 pm

        I am recovering from sleep deprivation nicely…thank you for inquiring…but I ‘m still struggling to face the fact that I’ll never be able to accelerate as quick as the Missile…even if I had a Harley.

        Be encouraged!

        • August 16, 2012 at 9:51 pm

          Max Missile….what a fitting name for the man from Isle of Man. Tell me that isn’t the most masculine place in the world..lol

  4. August 16, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Mmmm… Maserati… Wait, what was this post about? (Sorry, I know that was your line, but I couldn’t resist). 🙂

    • August 16, 2012 at 5:47 pm

      Hahaha, but you will always look better than me saying it 🙂
      I would have never guessed you were maserati kind of lady 🙂

    First of all Chris, I have to comment that I am beside myself with jealousiy that you’ve got access to Dunkin Donuts. The. Best. donuts. ever. We used to get them in the Philippines, but there are None in Melbourne. Those Bavarian Creme ones and Blueberry donuts are *the* best ever. I miss them badly every time I think of them. Last time I was in the Phils I had a plan to make myself hate them so much I wouldn’t miss thm in Australia anymore. I bought 11 Bavarian cremes and one Blueberry in a box, and forced myself to eat them ALL that night between about 9pm and breakfst in the Manila guesthouse. It didn’t work a bit! I still want them just as badly as ever. If someone wants to make $#*Tloads of money, all they gotta do is open Dunkin Donuts in Melbourne. If people like Crispy Creme donuts (yuk!!), they are going to be *blown away* by Dunkin Donuts. It’s just a matter of time, right?
    ANyway, back to your post..
    Are you sure this wasn’t a prostitute pick-up? If she’s semi-clad in a swimsuit and he’s in a Maserati, so vastly different to her Dodge Caravan? If indeed they are married, wtf is going on, man? Very odd. I hope their explanation makes him out to be less of a selfish bastard than the obvious surface appears.
    Nice to see you around, Chris. I’ve not seen you around in ages, it feels.
    Love from Rach.

    • August 16, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      oh yeah, Dunkin Donuts is really good. Its unthinkable what I would do without their bavarian creme and medium cup of coffee in the morning 🙂 I never tried the blueberry donuts, I always get the bavarian creme or the French crullers.
      Thats is riot that you had 11 donuts to rid yourself of the craving…rofl, you are so creative like that!
      I’ll keep the donut business in mind if I ever decide to move out to Australia..lol
      I agree Crispy creme is yuk! is so thick and sweet 😦
      I don’t think she was a prostitude. She looks like she just took her kids swimming. Its something American woman put over their swimsuit when they go outside and about. Plus Dunkin Donut really isn’t a popular place to pick up a prostitute…lol
      I do think Stephen’s explanation makes the most sense for the given situation 🙂
      It does feel like its been a while…lol. I need to check out what you’ve been up to 🙂

  6. August 16, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    I think my favorite part of this is that they were at a Dunkin’ Donuts.

    • August 16, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      lol, right! there is no way they were cheating at Dunkin Donuts, makes no sense.
      And as always I’m looking forward to my DD “same bat time” tomorrow! 🙂

  7. August 19, 2012 at 4:08 am

    Hey let me know when you figure all this out. The car looks cool, the van well not so much. The occupants, they may be aliens from another planet who haven’t quite got the whole thing worked out yet. But they know a good donut when they see one! 🙂

    • August 19, 2012 at 10:34 am

      I think Stephen’s explanation makes the most sense 🙂 But then again, your alien theory is pretty believable, too…lol.
      Happy Sunday Morning to you Penny, hope you had your coffee and donut this morning 🙂

  8. August 19, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    My first thought is some sort of funny sorted business. My second thought is divorcees.
    Who knows?

    • August 20, 2012 at 3:09 pm

      This type of curiosity inducing event certainly deserves a second take…lol. I was planning on asking him something about the car anyway. Thanks for stopping by memy!

      • August 20, 2012 at 5:09 pm

        My pleasure.
        Maybe you have a future as an investigator.

        • August 20, 2012 at 6:05 pm

          your comment comes on the heels of my lunch conversation with my lunch buddy. He definitely agrees with you and thinks there is good money to be made..lol. I probably wouldn’t be good at it because my self defense skill isn’t that good, and I’m willing to bet lot of these investigators run into physical confrontations.

          • August 20, 2012 at 9:54 pm

            You can get a partner and be the brains of the duo. I am thinking potential movie.

            • August 20, 2012 at 9:56 pm

              🙂 Movie would have too many horrible parts in it 😦 Living and Lovin is a place I can make pretty with photos 🙂

            • August 20, 2012 at 9:57 pm

              lol, you should have been in the middle of the conversation over lunch today. My buddy, Larry, was talking about a show called “Cheaters”. His wife can’t stand it, but its his second favorite show after the Kardashians 😦

      • August 20, 2012 at 9:52 pm

        Maybe you should be an investigator!

        • August 20, 2012 at 9:55 pm

          no way man, I’ll probably get beatup by all the offending parties, including the women…lol. Or pepper sprayed.

  9. August 19, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    awe the TRIST caught at a cheap D and D scantlly clad too what a lucky man he was then again there was a really expensive car stolen from a dealership lol

    • August 20, 2012 at 3:12 pm

      lol, THAT is one hilarious comment! We definitely have some creative folks in this blog realm.

      • August 20, 2012 at 3:24 pm

        Just saying I have seen it before afternoon delight lol

        • August 20, 2012 at 6:11 pm

          ROFL @ afternoon delight. Sounds like it can be an interesting blog topic for you? lol

          • August 20, 2012 at 6:49 pm

            Me, the trucker for 27 years, have stories that would curl toes lol I bet you I would double in readership if I told stories from the ROAD lol

            • August 20, 2012 at 8:38 pm

              Last I visited you site, I would have never guessed you used to be a trucker for 27years!! I thought you were art/photography specialist…lol.
              I think you are correct in saying you can easily double your readership from just the introductory title alone…lol. I’m already laughing at the potential of all your trucking stories. So the million dollar question is, what is the hold-up?

              • August 20, 2012 at 8:58 pm

                I still cry when I think about not being able to truck well until I read your post thanks for making me laugh boyfriend is too I took him out for a few runs before back got so bad I am doing yoga and weigh watchers and getting healthier each day so you never know I may get back in one then blog from the road lol I will have to scan a photo of my rig and start maybe do a new blog and stay focused this time lol
                linked to this one of course 🙂

                • August 20, 2012 at 9:09 pm

                  That is a brilliant idea!! I read through lot of other people’s blogs and I’ve never even seen anything from trucker’s perspective…lol. I kid you not, it is so funny just thinking about it 🙂
                  I am glad to have added value to your visit 🙂 I will put you down as another satisfied customer to my site…lol. Please, I hope your back recovers and I’m hoping to hear some of your past trucking stories, too!

                      I’m like a ticking time bomb when it comes to RAIDING somebody’s blog…lol. I’ve almost completely stopped readiing books because of all the great blog contents.
                      You are looking for a cheerleader? well, you got one!

                    • August 20, 2012 at 9:40 pm

                      THANKS! I try not to tell too much of me as you can tell with my photos lol those who know me love me though as I always have them ROTFL with my stories they want me to write a book I said I would attempt sharing in a BLOG first

                    • August 20, 2012 at 9:46 pm

                      You got very talented&smart friends. You definitely want to do some market survey before commiting big bucks to invest in your project. Maybe count up all the lol’s and rofl’s and say if it hits 10k, its worth a book :). How about a book titled, “ROFL along with the truckdriver from hell”…hahaha. If you are blogging, you are certainly that much closer to being an author of your own book 🙂

                    • August 20, 2012 at 9:54 pm

                      Thanks! I will search my soul and photos of my rigs and see what I can come up with I will of course let you know 🙂

                    • August 20, 2012 at 9:58 pm

      Is that your law enforcement instinct? 🙂

      I am actually very happy to get your comment! Its implying you and your family survived Isaac and your internet is working 🙂 You didn’t get to try out the recommended bathing technique, did you? lol

        Something does seem a little suspicious lol

          October 11, 2012 at 1:26 pm

          ummm, yeah, especially when he is dropping his child off with a different woman that just seems out-of-place. She was in a skintight sausage casing of an outfit, stiletto heels, and bulk of her upper body exposed to the environment. I think this man is out of control…I pray his son turns out okay 😦

          • xoEvelynOrtizHasSpoken
            October 11, 2012 at 11:04 pm

            Oh wow he sounds out of control and that description of that woman was quite funnyyy lol. A little scary though, what is that man exposing his son to? SMH

              You wouldn’t belive how the other moms were describing the lady…lol. I am worried about his kid and wondering what he sees at home. I’m also not sure if I want my son hanging out with him either….such difficult parenting issue[sigh]

                October 12, 2012 at 5:21 pm

                lol. omg smh. Yeah I would distant my child also but at the same time maybe that child need s a good role model. If your son is anything like you, he can save that child from the madness his father is creating lol :-p
