The Crazy Woman Early Warning System

29 July 2010 @ 14:32

Speaking of prudence

First, what exactly is prudence?  The Collins English Dictionary defines it very clearly and well [FYI: the OED agrees with it]:

1. caution in practical affairs; discretion or circumspection

2. care taken in the management of one’s resources

3. consideration for one’s own interests

4. the condition or quality of being prudent

One of the areas when men really, really need to exercise prudence is in the selection of women that they are going to romance and/or get to know in The Biblical Sense.

The case of famous basketball couch Rick Pitino serves as a perfect example of how not to approach such a situation.  He is rich and famous, but this lesson applies to all men of all income levels, of all races, of all ethnicities.

Resident wise sage of the Rightosphere, Stacy McCain has the details of the testimony so far and comments:

…Not all women who wear short skirts are crazy, but when a woman in a short skirt introduces herself in a restaurant by shoving a cell phone in your face and, next thing you know, she’s unzipping your pants, your Crazy Woman Early Warning System ought to pick up the signals.

Without even know the particular details of this case, I think it’s rather obvious that Stacy is making the argument for ‘caution in practical affairs; discretion or circumspection’. 

Also you can see ‘consideration for one’s own interests’ should have been applied here.  Face it men: when you get involved with a woman – any woman – you get dragged into her world.  If she’s a nice, upstanding gal, well, then you will enter a comfortable scene, but, if she’s bat sh-t, full-on, monkey rampage crazy, then hold on like Bill Pullman in Twister ’cause the barn’s going to be blown away from around you in a Fujita 5.

The sad thing is, these gals can be such fun….for a while [watch out for the redheads].

    You’re right of course, BUT … a “bat sh-t, full-on, monkey rampage crazy” woman who’s “unzipping your pants” is near impossible to resist. We are after all, mere mortals.

    “Without even know the particular details of this case, I think it’s rather obvious that Stacy is making the argument for ‘caution in practical affairs; discretion or circumspection’.”

    Too funny!

    Hey, I do not feel sorry for any man who winds up with some crazy chick in his life because he wanted to get laid. You reap what you sow, and he should have seen that one coming a mile off.

    Also, let me add this advice: nice women (especially nice redheads) have no desire to get involved with men who have been involved with bats–t crazy chicks. For us, it’s a big warning sign.

      Roxeanne: That’s unfair. You know, some of us fellas like to sample the Female Pu-Pu Platter of Life – we want to experience life in all it’s forms and that includes all forms of crazy.

    Bob: not unfair; just reality learned the hard way.

    I’ve dated men who have dated crazy women, and am so beyond DONE with that. Their expectations are completely ridiculous – they basically want nice girls to be as horny, slutty, and ready to screw as their bats–t crazy exes, but (remarkably) without the cheating, STDs, and other things that so often accompany promiscuity and sluttiness.

    There’s only so many polite ways that you can respond to “Bats–t crazy girl did X, Y, and Z, why don’t you?”.

      Roxeanne: If you’re just speaking of those kind of guys, you’re quite right. I just wanted to stick up for those of us who were merely adventurers.
