Like Being a Politician's Wife: Oh No, He Didn't!

When your husband is in sales, it means that you have a role similiar to that of a politician's wife.

A lot of smiling and nodding.

Hubs can be very charming when he wants to be. He definitely has the personality of a salesman.  He can get along with anyone.

This past Saturday, he and I were at a festival and he ran into one of his clients. Who might have had a tiny little bit of blood left in his alcohol stream a drink or two.

When he stopped to talk to Hubs, he joked that he would have only said hi and kept going if Hubs's wife was ugly. But, since she(me) was hot, he'd stay and talk.

Oh no, he didn't!

But, I just laughed along and let them talk.

This guy lived right in town where the festival was being held and Hubs asked him if there were people parked in his lawn.

Drunk guy The client said yes, of course there were. Hubs jokingly asked if he was charging for that.

"No. And you could have parked there for free because you have a hot wife. Would have been $100 if she was some big fat bitch."

Oh no, he didn't!

Instead of kicking him in the balls or at least spilling a drink all over him, I laughed. Because that is what you do when you are the wife of a salesman.

Sadly, the meme Oh No, He Didn't over at Live and Love Outloud is being retired today. But, @tweetingmama is encouraging someone to take it up and run with it- and I hope someone does!

My husband is in sales too, I always get, your husband is so funny, I bet you just laugh at him all the time! Yes, I agree you play a role when your husband is in sales. It never fails, when we go out together which is rare just the two of us, he runs into somebody he knows, and it turns into a 20 minute conversation about work.

Truly an awkward moment. We used to own a restaurant in town so I know those moments well. Some people just have no class and don't know their limits.

Although I was not a salesperson I worked as the finance wheel within sales for a very long time and every so often would get dragged out to sales events, annual customer conferences etc and the things you have to endure are unbelievable. I could never, ever have been a sales person.

I'm not sure I could have kept smiling, with a creep like that... Hubby should have said that his wife is off limits to discussion... Bletch! Ptui! Aaarch! Ugh!...

Dear Lord! Some people should just not be allowed to drink! But at least he was dishing out compliments!

Sadly, the alcohol probably didn't make this guy a douchebag. Sounds like a really nice guy. *insert seething sarcasm*

OMG!!! I can't believe he said that! The nerve... Sometimes you have to blame it on the alcohol... and other times, it's just because the guy is a total d-bag. But you handled it well. He is a client of your husband's so you wouldn't want to rock the proverbial boat.

Way to go, Shell.

You're too hot to keep the assholes away, and you're not bitchy enough to get charged for it.

Keep that in mind for next year. Go park on his lawn, flash some leg and say, "Thanks, sugar!"
