Title Text: "And now I might never get to again."

As always, awesome comic. Can't say I've had that exact thought before in that circumstance, but now I definitely will next time. :[
"Don't you see?!"

I was beaten to making a topic again. I knew I should have just went straight to where the comic was going to be...

I will delete my duplicate, posthaste!

EDIT: Done. Anyways, the moment given displayed in the comic would be embarrassing, creepy, and awkward all at the same time. In other words, this was another success.

Recently, my girlfriend's father took us to Vegas as a graduation present to her. (University) We stayed at the Hilton. We were checking in, and the check-in lady asked if for the second room was two beds ok.

The briefest of pauses transpires, while I try to focus very hard on the cool waterfall dealy behind the check-in desk.

Then my girlfriend pipes up with quite an authoritative "No." THEN the check-in lady asks, would you like a king size bed?

Back to the waterfall dealy.

Girlfriend: "Yes, a king size would be great."

And the moment of awkwardness is over. Then we find out our room was right next to her dad's room. The beds were on opposite sides of the same wall. And we're in VEGAS. We honestly considered sneaking out to find a sex club or something.

If I ever have a daughter, she's going to be a lesbian.

This is why I don't get any sleep. Thank you Randall!

Best post something interesting as well.

This has never happened to me. Well, I met one girlfriend's parents (the only gf ever) but I never licked her nipples nor said that to her parents. Then again we were 14 or 15 at the time.

EDIT: spaceraptor: Best Post Ever. I've heard of protective parents but hey!

@cmacis, wing: Her dad is a very cool guy. I'm just saying. We both knew the situation. Clearly I was going to sleep with his daughter. I'm impressed with us both for not saying anything awkward as hell. Like "I have licked your daughter's nipples."

Been there, done that (interpret how you will).

Also, I have a daughter, and my friend D spoke my thoughts: "I seriously hope she ends up as a lesbian, because guys suck. We do. All of us. The only guy I'd want her to end up with is (Mighty Jalapeno), because, no offense, I'd fucking kill the rest of you." There wa, like, seven other male friends there, and everyone agreed that if they had daughters, I was the only one out of the group they'd want her to end up with.

So lesbianism is better than being with me :) Woo!

Edited to white-out possible nsfw content



This reminds me of the time I was caught during the act with my girlfriend-at-the-time. Her mom announced her presence right as I was climaxing. It was the saddest orgasm ever. We were clothed and I believe the incident was passed off as not-sex.

All I was thinking while her mom was standing there was "Look. I KNOW you would like us to separate, but I REALLY don't think you want to be watching when we do."
"It's Saturday night. I've got no date, a two-liter of Shasta, and my all-Rush mixtape. Let's rock!"
"I am just about to be brilliant!"

This has reminded me of a similarly awkward situation I was in once.

Her dad called while we were...occupied. There was an awkward moment of silence before I realized she was going to ignore it.

I felt bad...here was a man probably worried about his daughter and where she is and what she's up to, and I'm copulating with her.

Your mind was most definitely in the wrong place.

Besides, it's only bad if she didn't want to partake in the copulation.

Yes. It's a weird feeling when your in a room with a bunch of your girlfriend at the time relatives, and they all know that you sleep with her. If only they know I licked her nipples that would be fine compared to the rest of the stuff.


AWKWARD!

I think the reason this was laugh-out-loud funny for me was because I'm fresh out of high school, and see my girlfriend's parents on a daily basis, and sometimes thoughts like this pass through my head. In fact, I think I've had this one before.

In other words, this is funny for the same reason every xkcd comic is funny.

Go for it.

It'll be worth it in ten years when I write a children's book with that title. You'll have had it sigged since before it was famous. :D

I'm kindof surprised by the number of people who *don't* already have this problem.

It is a near constant refrain in my head.

That said, this is true of any situation that I could make irretrievably bad with a single sentence; that sentence immediately comes to mind, and will not leave until the situation is over.

I had almost the opposite experience. A couple years ago, my bf-at-the-time and I were visiting his mom, and as a belated birthday present she surprised him (and me) by renting this honeymoon-style cabin for the night.

I was kind of like, um... wait... so if I understand this correctly, you're soliciting me out to your son for his birthday?

Despite the fact that I was Shanghaied into it, it was an excellent night.

Pertaining to the comic: I think the urge to say things like this may be a guy thing...

So true. There are times I literally have to bite my tongue or dig my nails into my thigh to keep myself from saying that one situation-killing sentence. Oh, the terrible things I could tell parents about their sons and daughters.

It's not even just with parents, for me. If I meet someone of another race, I instantly have the most racist thing I could possibly say, on the tip of my tongue. Not because I'm racist, but because it is the *worst possible thing I could say*. Same goes if I'm around someone who's recently suffered a tragedy. Then I've got a mental loop of the most insensitive, salt-in-the-wounds thing I could say in a single breath.

I live in perpetual fear that someone will catch me in an uninhibited state (sleepy, drunk, etcetera), and these things will just slip out. After that, I will probably need to live in a cave.

Postby ivans » Mon Jun 11, 2007 7:38 am UTC

... that every time I read one of the comics, I think to myself "he can't possibly get any better than this!" Two days later, I'm proven wrong.

On topic: probably the worst thing I ever said was when I spoke to my girlfriend's sister and father at one time. My girlfriend was very stimulated by having sex in other people's beds.

Anyway, during the conversation, I mentioned to the sister that her bed is really much more comfortable than my girlfriend's which caused her to give me an angry look (she figured it out), while the father looked completely bemused (he didn't figure it out).

I've had this exact thought when speaking to my girlfriend's parents. And, for that matter, much filthier thoughts. Fortunately I've never actually spoken them.

I do, on nearly a daily basis, have to prevent myself from telling amusing or interesting stories that start out with "This one time, when we were having sex..." And I frequently have to restrain myself from saying things like "My new straps came in the mail!"

Oh, I dunno. My wife has said that she often has thoughts like this. As far as I know, she has never actually said them. But sometimes I detect a slight grin, and ask her later what she was thinking. She usually says something pretty funny that wouldn't have been socially correct at the time.
