    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Eloped and now planning THE day : My husband openly farts, clips his toenails, and occasionally picks his nose in front of me.  These actions aren't magically socially acceptable in polite company just because I don't personally get offended by them.

    Love this.  My husband often decides that he's not wearing pants when we eat dinner.  It doesn't bug me but that's certainly not socially acceptable.

    Yes, do what you want to do even if it defies logic and appropriateness.

    Yes, please do what you want. You can register for gifts, and if people buy them, they do... if not than w/e. 

    Why is it such a big deal for someone to do something that defies logic or appropriateness or ettiquette? I am pretty positive that alot of what we all do at one point was considered unappropriate and probably some of what each of us are doing is not the correct "ettiquette" way of doing them. So what?

    Really?  I legitimately don't get this.

    When planning my wedding or really, when doing anything of a social nature I want to be nice to others and I want to make them comfortable.  The last thing I want to do is act with a sense of entitlement or do something that others will think is rude.  As an adult I understand that when I make choices there are repercussions for those choices be they good, bad or indifferent - I stll accept the responsibility for my actions.

    I simply cannot understand those who think that it's perfectly fine to do something that's rude and think that there's a sense of entitlement to do this.  I see it all the time - from the posts on here to the person who once said to the train conductor in DH's town, "That train can't leave, my HUSBAND isn't on it yet!" and it just baffles me that people think that the rules of polite society simply don't apply to what they're doing.
