inappropriate

The Husband went for his annual check up and he phoned me afterwords…
(We had a a bet to see if he has gained weight since I moved in; he did, 1kg)

He was happy to report that the doctor told him he was perfect (but as he said, she didn’t check his brain), and then he told me that when he took his shirt off, the doctor said he had a nice body.

WHAT???

“She said what?” (in a much gentler tone)

“It’s OK, she’s like 55.”

(Apparently The Husband is not familiar with the species known as, la cougar.)

“I don’t care how old she is, that’s not appropriate.”

It’s OK. she was being nice, she asked if I played any sports.”

(Try to picture the “it’s OK” part being said with that southern French accent. For some of you this may be difficult, but for others, you know what I’m talking about, it’s slightly sing-song, irritated, and occasionally followed by a huff and puff).

Since he clearly wasn’t understanding, I had to I turn the tables on him and break it down like this…

“If I went for my physical and the 55 year old male doctor said I had a nice body, would that be OK?”


“It’s inappropriate”

“Exactement”

  4. I can't say anything, I almost ran off the road ogling some buff body running without a shirt on, all muscular and ripply and what not, and when I turned around for one last look and caught the front of him? He was like, 22. Sad, so sad.

  6. Non, non, non, completely tres uncool. That's a classic French-lady-doctor-cougar move. Only in EUROPE! I swear they get away with saying just about anything “there”… 🙂

  8. So glad that he at least got the point at the end! 🙂 I love my husband, but it's funny how they don't see the inappropriate-ness of something until the tables are turned for them.

  12. OK, now that's just cute. I only go to the gym to stay in shape for doctor visits anyway. KIDDING (kinda). Seriously – cute.

  13. Funny how French men think they are so different. I told my dearly beloved that anything he considered okay for him to do, I considered okay for me to do. He was shocked. lolI was unrepentant. I said “You're free to do as you like. If you do, know that I will to…”. That doc was out of order, but I've found that doctors can be inappropriate here. I have one that makes bizarre comments. Lucky for him he's a good doc and conveniently placed, but you have to accept that he makes the odd inappropriate comment!
