QUOTE (DeepRoots @ Apr 16 2009, 05:40 PM) *
I try not to make to many jokes- which is about 95% of what comes out of my mouth usually but i find that older generation's sense of humour aren't quite as dry or tuned to irony as mine is. Just be prepared to go through the "what do you want to do when you're older" conversation.

A few tips though:

-Don't steal their silverware
-Don't claim the remote control insisting that you are a guest and therefore are calling all the shots
-Offensive t-shirts should be toned down slightly- don't go further than the classic "Voting is for old people" shirt
-If they offer to drive you home, always accept politley- but never criticize their driving
-Don't turn up there, say hello, then spend hours locked away with their daughter..they won't like that much
-Though walking through their house with muddy shoes may seem funny at first- it does lead a very obvious trail to where you are hiding
-Only turn up with wine for the meal if you are prepared to share it

That's all i can think of at the moment...but remember- if all else fails and they don't like you..then they will insist their daughter should never see you again....making you the "forbidden fruit" (you should then proceed to write them a thank you note as things will then be even better with your girlfriend)

Good luck wink.gif

Hehe, Deeproots you made my day (night) with these tips laugh.gif


One advice: be yourself, don't try to act anything. They have been through life so they will know if you're honest. Don't worry it will be OK! smile.gif

Many places. However, there are those that say you can go blind.

Before you get to the house, turn down your car stereo, drive at or below the speed limit in her neighborhood. You never know who is watching. ph34r.gif

Rule Nine:
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Ok, seriously...sometimes my daughters would bring guys over and my wife and I would have fun playing a rapid-fire round of questioning.

One of the questions we asked was, "Do you have any children?"

If you answer, "Not that I know of", you have FAILED!

FAILED! Stand up and leave the house immediately.

HHAHAHAHAHAHA

HAHA I just take my dads magnum?



Wow this thread really started my day out great!

Well her dad got home from work at like 8:00 last night and the best part was he didnt really question me. We actually just sat there and watched the movie "saw" and just talking about how sick it was to have a little girl with a gun to her head. He was pretty cool though. He was sorta scary at first with the deep voice and being all tall but after that it was cool. He told my girlfriend once I left that he actually liked me alot. laugh.gif

You seem in denial or hypnotized Trey. I think he is hiding his battle wounds.

Glad it went good, Trey tongue.gif
I was about to say that you should never, EVER, smoke her mom's flowers.... A friend of mine... Well, let's just say he's been into some stuff when he was younger, and... Well...

Great tips from everyone! Some of the replies made me laugh out loud in the middle of class earlier tongue.gif
