Thanks Thingingman,


I appreciated your comments not only for the understanding you show as a BS but because you are male and have a little more insight to that alien creature that we women can't understand half the time.


Because this weekend is his 40th birthday I may offer up that he suggest to the guys they get together Friday night.

It does sound like you are laying down the law to and adolescent, but his failure to understand the difference is sort of adolescent. Once he gets why it would bother you, then you don't need to make any boundaries because he has them for himself.

Did you try to explain the difference? You are raising the bar for him, let him know where it is.
