The Goonfather wants me to micro-manage him

The Goonfather is the strangest man I’ve ever known.

He is the first (and possibly last) man I know who will complain when he doesn’t get nagged at.

“Why you never nag at me to [insert random command such as ‘Stop playing game, it’s bad for your eyes’]?”

I’d be, like, “Who the hell wants to be nagged at?”

He would say, “Me.”

“Huh???” I would retort.

“You must micro-manage me. It shows you care about me.”


I get this quite a lot because I do not nag, period. I am a firm believer of non naggage. I generally believe in letting people do what they want to do because I want to do what I want to do, myself.

Unless someone does something that severely compromises my comfort or safety or whatever, I’ll usually just leave him alone.

Once in a while, I will try to nag at him to make him happy.

“Go and study. If not you fail your test tomorrow.”

But it is so not in my nature to do such a thing, in fact, it is so against my nature to nag, that I often forget to do it. I find it hard to convince myself that he enjoys it.

So he ends up always nagging at me to nag at him.

I’m in the strangest relationship, ever.

    i think in general nagging means…concern,like mothers all have the greatest love,or so it was said,and mothers WILL nag,the more a mother nags,the more she cares for your well-being,i think relationships nowadays have more nagging because they care for each other…eitehr that or GF watched too many dramas……

    Well, Greyee nags at me all the time and he says that’s how he shows his love for me. And I’m like huh? You become annoying to show that you love? What sort of theory is that. So no, Goonfather and him are in the same category!

    what?: Hmm… that is generally the logic. But generally also, everyone hates nagging, isn’t it? :P

    Monster: What is the world coming to, haha! I thought nagging is usually the domain of women, traditionally, but now it seems like it’s the guys who are becoming proponents of nagging! :P

    Well… I’d agree with that last comment in the post :o)

    As for nagging: I’m guessing that there are probably a number of people out there who would willingly trade their nagging spouses for one that didn’t. Maybe you should consider some timeshare?

    Hey Mistress Shey,

    How bout carrying the nagging part a little further? If the GF likes nagging, imagine how much more he’ll enjoy it if you add in a little bit of slapping/whipping. Oh, I suppose wearing leather while doing it doesn’t hurt?

    *evil grin*

    I have never, ever heard of, envisioned, imagined, think or to even acknowledge the slightest probably of a relationship like this would exist.

    A girl who doesn’t nag, wtf right?
    but a guy who wants to be nagged at, WTF?!

    It’s not even a dream, it’s just not possible. Are you sure?
