    I’m always suspicious of such entreaties. Once a woman asked me foe money so she could take a cab to a homeless shelter. Why wasn’t a bus acceptable?

    You have admirable chutzpah for talking to the girlfriend.

    Good title, I like that better than mine.


    Glad to be of service.

    Thanks for the laugh, I needed that! I like Mother in Israel’s suggestion LOL

    I’m still giggling- that’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time!

    Alternate Title: Brother, Can You Spare a Condom?

    I can picture you saying that.


    It does sound like a weird scam.




    I hope not.




    Winning wasn’t on my mind.


    I have a knife in the car that I could have offered.


    Glad to be of service.

    When you experience moments that make you act like this, I simply love them. I must simply be living vicariously through you.

    I’d have offered him scissors for castration…

    Uh, you really think she’s never seen that behavior before? Think it’s going to stop them from having sex? I doubt it. I would have said to the girl, hey hon, I’m buying this condom for *you*, so that you aren’t stuck with his offspring, but let me know if you want to get away from him and find someone better- he’s a loser.

    IMO not buying the condom – punishes her, not him, ultimately.
    OTOH, you won up until the last comment.

    I woulda bought him the condom. (You want to risk the chance that there might be more of him born into this world???)

  10. Michael November 7, 2007 at 2:32 pm

    Somehow, I think that after that little episode, the guy might not have needed that condom anymore…

    Well, that certainly doesn’t happy every day.

  12. The Misanthrope November 7, 2007 at 6:09 am

    My initial thought might have been to help him out, but then I would think that if can’t afford condoms he shouldn’t be having sex.

    The whole thing sounds like a scam to me. I am such a sucker I am now suspicious of anyone asking for money.

    Okay, tough one. he started out very respectfully. My first inclination would have been to say sure for twso reasons:

    to do a bit to prevent the possible spread of STD’s, and to keep an unwanted pregnancy from occurring and screwing up THREE lives in the process.

    Begging? Sure. But the bigger issues are the former ones. at least for me.

    Of course, I also don’t cotton to people who resort to name-calling when they don’t get their way and your refusal was clearly your right. So kudos on the Iraq remark.

    Of course, I would have been inclined to tell his GF that I’d be happy to help her instead as I DO have the price of a condom and then some. THAT would have been sweet!
