During a moment of boredom last week, we caught an episode of that "Tell Me That You Love Me" show on HBO On Demand. We think it might be the most annoying television show we've ever seen. Basically, it's just a bunch of rich white people complaining about How We Just Don't Communicate The Way We Used To. You want to take every single one of them and slap them until they stop bitching. The show should run directly after "The Wire," just to prove how goddamned awful suburban white people are. (I have this beautiful house and car and wife and children and job ... WHY CAN'T I BE HAPPY?) Ugh. God, it's the worst. Anyway, the next time someone on that show starts whining to their therapist about how they feel "marginalized" by their spouse, we suggest they just listen to the words of wisdom of Gilbert Arenas.
Because Gilbert knows how how you settle relationship disagreements with your lady.
So we was on 16th and Constitution and she kicked me out of the car and I had to walk all the way to the gym. It was probably a mile, but I had on smaller shoes. You know, I wear 13s, but I had on 12s because they matched the outfit I was wearing so my feet were hurting and I didn't have any cab money to take a cab and that all played a part.
So I went on a strike.
I think all men should do this when they have a disagreement. This is Relationship 101. When you have a fight with "the other," don't answer their calls and don't answer their pages. That usually gets the point across that you're not talking to them. So, I held out for seven days. I went on strike for seven days and stayed at the gym for seven days. I slept in the gym. They got nice couches in there and it just kept me in the gym working on my knee and stuff.
Arenas then explains how that's why he missed an EA Sports promotional event in Toronto; his passport was at home, and because he was "on strike," he couldn't go home and get it. We full expect Gilbert to have his own syndicated advice talk show at some point. We'd surely watch it more than that HBO crap.
