So, Im a married man of 11 years, and you'd think after all these years she'd figure out to now mess with me when Im gaming.. lol. Nope. Case and point, yesterday.
During a casual Sunday afternoon, I figured i'd squeeze in a couple of fights of Street Fighter , before firing up a movie and my wife finished eating lunch. Now I typically wouldnt do this, because I usually like to game:
- At night after everyone goes to bed
- without my kids around as I dont like playing violent games around my kids (stuff like gears or COD)
In anycase, Here I am like round 3 of 5 / fighting random ranked matches in street fighter (I enjoy this because its easy in and easy out). Suddenly she decides to jokingly walk across the room and totally COCK BLOCK the TV, impairing my ability to kick ass, and basically giving a free pass to my opponent. As if that wasn't enough, she then decides to unplug my fightpad again, mid match.
Now, Im a pretty patient guy, but when it comes to gaming, I tend to get really pissed if Im not provided with a semi-fair opportunity to WIN. Like, I absolutely HATE when someone is trying to have a conversation with me while Im playing any type of game that requires precision.. (such as: well timed key inputs in SF.)
This pretty much just reinforces the fact that I should really just stick to gaming during the evening hours, and not have to deal with this frustration.. lol.
Perhaps Its stupid for me to have this mind set, but as a guy who uses gaming as a means to get away from "real life, and responsibility" (as do alot of other peeps), its important for me to NOT brought back into real life while Im having my game sessions.
Obviously, I know she was joking, and I just turned it off in frustration, and handled it like a MAN.. lol. I love my wife to death, and i know shes totally just trolling me intentionally. In anycase, I figured i'd blog this simply because I know I cant be the only dude who's lived this experience in one form or another.
Thanks for reading duders.
