Deny, Deny, Deny
Deny, Deny, Deny
There was a funny bit on that ancient TV show “Guide for the Married Man” called Deny, Deny, Deny. The premise was if you are caught doing something wrong, simply deny it convincingly enough and your accuser will think he/she must be mistaken.
In the skit, a husband is caught in bed cheating on his wife. As she is asking what is going on, the man casually gets dressed and to every accusation his wife makes he simply says “What?" Or "Why?” The woman dresses and leaves, the husband acts as if nothing happened and the wife eventually believes she imagined the whole thing.
Deny, Deny, Deny!
Mrs. C just mumbled a name at me (Ass) and I asked her "WHAT?" She attempted to deny calling me an ass under her breath. Cranky is not that gullible…anymore.
Years ago, I was dating a young lady who on one particular night told me she was busy. I accepted that and went to hang out with my old high school friend Charley.
When driving to Charley’s, I passed my girlfriend chatting with another guy. WTF!! I turned around, and she saw me. She left in her VW and drove home. I followed her to her house and watched her go inside. I was seething, but decided not to challenge her at that moment.
The next day I asked,
“Why were you were talking to some guy last night and I thought you were busy?”
“Last night, I saw you talking to someone and when you saw me you left, I followed you home.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Last night, I saw you.”
“Are you crazy? I was home all night.”
“But I saw you, you were talking to some guy and you left before I could stop and see what was going on.”
“Look, I don’t know what you are talking about, but if you go around following every girl in a VW you are going to get in trouble.”
That was it, I just figured I was crazy and dropped the subject before she got angry with me. Years later I learned of a high school Spanish teacher who had a penchant for young girls. My girl friend was taking Spanish III at the time. I’m pretty sure she was seeing this teacher, and there was probably some monkey business going on.
That or I just imagined the whole thing…I have never been sure.
