Hi there! My name is SlowBro but some know me as Mongo. I, like many of you, sometimes get the urge to vent my frustrations or dump my intellectual diarrhea all over the internet. To keep with the theme : it seems I have found my toilet. If you wish to waste alot of time for basically nothing in return, then by all means read my blog.

My sister got engaged to some arrogant bum.

Posted 08-24-2010 at 12:35 AM by SlowBro
First off, anyone that knows me knows that I love my sister to death in the way that a true brother should. We grew up doing everything together and even plotted to run away from home and live on our own when we were rebellious teens. I kicked her bullies' asses and spent a whole month visiting her and teaching her the curriculum she was missing when she was hospitalized. Suffice it to say that she is my kawaii kawaii imouto that nobody will ever hurt and live to tell the tale.

Fast forward to last weekend. I was invited to some family meet&greet thing with her boyfriend's family. I couldn't go because I had some previous engagements. Little did I know her boyfriend put this whole thing together to propose to her. Anyway, today I get a call from my parents telling me that she's engaged to "some arrogant bum." I've always heard bad things about him but I never met him in person. I didn't want to doubt my sister's judgement but the parents are really distressed over it.

Apparently he dropped out of school, quit his job because of his "carpal tunnel, a bad back, and a weak ankle," and has no plans for the future. Meanwhile he lives with my sister who is a registered nurse pulling in a decent pay cheque. This alone wouldn't be enough for me to get mad though. When he met my parents with my sister he decided to talk about his opinions on abortion (he thinks males should have no opinion in the matter which in itself is an opinion) and why catholicism > christianity (we're christians). When my dad asked him what he would say if his child asked him about abortion he replied with, "that's for the mother to discuss, males have no part in that." After a few more questions regarding his "beliefs," he explodes with "I DON'T HAVE TO SHARE MY OPINIONS ABOUT ANYTHING. I DON'T BELIEVE IN CATHOLICISM OR YOUR RELIGION BECAUSE I THINK MY WAY IS BETTER. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO CRITISIZE ME!" Or so my parents tell me.

After this catastrophe he goes off to some zoo nearby and proposes to my sister who blindly accepts because she's afraid of confrontation I guess. She says that he had a bad day and he's not normally like that. What's worse is that he consistently avoided meeting the parents every chance he got and he apparently thinks I'm a "tool" because I didn't come. Why not be a little more proactive and tell us your intentions before demanding that we drive 6hrs for "supper?"

There's clearly something wrong here but I don't know if I should kick his ass, educate my sister, or both.

    He does sound like a jerk, but I'd meet with him first if I were you. When all is said and done, you do have to give your sister some credit, and hope she can make her own choices (she is a nurse, so I assume she's a grown woman). If you're not careful, your sister might resent you for "controlling her life" even if it IS for her own good.

    My suggestion: Meet the guy and watch him like a hawk. I personally already don't like him for being an idiot and insulting his girlfriend's brother for no reason (since the two of you ARE on good terms. Hell, I don't like my brother but it's still annoying when someone randomly insults him).

    Just tell him that Catholics invented purgatory to make money for the church.

    And then punch his face. Nobody should talk to parents that way, it's just not right. Especially someone else's parents, if you barely know them.

    You should probably keep calm, and tell your sister why it's so ****ing stupid to even get with that guy. A school drop-out, he's not going to make much money. He more than likely won't ever find a real career, and will probably be a floater, always looking for some part-time job.

    With "carpal tunnel" (wtf he masturbates too much) and "bad back" he won't be able to do any heavy lifting, and with a "weak ankle" he won't be able to stand/walk for long periods of time, which eliminates all of the most basic of jobs he could really do. He won't be able to use a computer at work for long periods of time, because his "carpal tunnel" and shit.

    Hell, if they stayed together he probably couldn't even lift any future child they had together (past a certain age anyway). Basically he'd just be a bum living off of her for the rest of his life.

    Tell her these things calmly and then just let her rationalize for a bit. :v

    If that's really the reason she accepted, you really have to get her to think things over. An important life choice like this shouldn't be decided on a whim; she can't just back down and accept everything he says because he has a short fuse and "wasn't normally like that". (Hell, he MUST have a short fuse if he had an outburst like that in front of her parents.)
    Anyway, if he really is as bad as you say, forget a punch in the face; give him actual back/ankle problems and promise him death in a fire.

    If your sister says so, just get another confirmation that "he's not really like that". Apparently some people can be jerks to everyone else in the world except for the person he likes.

    Just giving him the benefit of the doubt. But kick his ass for the sheer rudeness he had shown to your parents. :/ He could have been more diplomatic. :/ Though, this is just the asian in me speaking.

    I'd be leaning towards asking your sister to think things over that she really wants to marry to him, or is as what you're suspecting that she's just afraid of confrontation.

    Kill the guy, marry your sister. It's what you wanted all along anyways.

    Can't say your parents won't get along with the husband amirite?
