Today, a girl punched me square in the face, effectively leaving it with purple swellings because I called her boyfriend an "uncle". Said boyfriend IS my uncle. FML
ItsAnanya tells us more :
Hey guys! It's OP :] So most of you were confused as to why she would hit me for calling my uncle...uncle. She thought I was insulting him and making him feel old and by extension implying that SHE was old. She also blamed it on the fact that it seemed as I was trying to hit on him ? ( I'm still confused about that one ) Thank heavens my uncle puts family first. Miss.Pack-A-Punch is out of our lives for good !

So "dat shit cray" is no longer a valid phrase within social interactions? Hmm. I'll have to make a note of it within my journal of social protocols.

Civilization is over man, people are becoming more impatient and selfish. Just another example of people throwing tantrums like children because they don't like something.

39 - I'd say we're getting better actually. Once upon a time, so many "insults" were met with a duel. It's flippin ridiculous the things people used to kill each other for.
Now before you say "people still kill each other for stupid sh!t", I'm talking normal people. It used to be pretty typical. Now we (generally) look down upon that kind of savagery.

The thing is that we have Internet today. So much access to stupidity can make someone stupid. We can read stupidity, hear, watch and study it on the net, unlike other generations. So I don't think we're any lesser than the generations before us.

94, excellent point! Take Joshua Tree National Park as an example: a guy lives off the land, long after Native Americans had left, built a decent dam to retain the little water left, with his bare hands, and started a mine. Another guy, who has trails and the only mine named after him, that he didn't start, comes in with his wife and kids and kills the original guy who started it all, and buries the original guy next to the only trail to get to the mine. He put, "Here lays (the man's name) that I shot cold blooded (or something very similar to that)." signed by the murderer's name. Yet, Joshua Tree idols this guy, naming so many things after him, for coming in and killing a guy who created it by himself. It wasn't a crime either. If you didn't give a person, who had higher power than you, what he/she wanted, you'd die. (Sorry for the lack of names; too lazy to look them up or look at my pictures). The first time I backpacked around Joshua Tree, I was infatuated with how much this guy and his family had achieved. I was also curious why he killed the other guy. When I got home to research it, I got sick to my stomach.

Most people call older strangers (such as a guy that might be working at a store) Uncle instead of Sir or Mister in Malaysia, which has lots of Indian immigrants. I'm assuming this lady got mad because she thought OP was pretty much just calling her boyfriend old.

Language is a wonderful thing, no? It evolves to the point where next to anything can earn you a broken nose, while some of the most random or even offensive things make women swoon.

Ok I looked it up on urban dictionary uncle can mean "A person who is too hot to handle."
I guess the girlfriend thought she was using that definition?

Well.... I dont agree to the violence part, but she might have been sensitive to her bf's feelings, hence her reaction.... Might also be a sign of care/love from her side?!?!?!

#48 how does loving him allow her to be easily offended by a nephew calling her boyfriend his uncle? Maybe she's sensitive about his age (assuming he is older)?
