- Latin ego + English -tism (as in idiotism)
Egotistic. Yep, that's my husband alright. I love the above where it is aka "Idiotism" as I am sure my sister Tammy can attest.
Although my husband has many positive qualities, he doesn't show those in public much. As frustrating as it is for me, I have to deal with his egocentric ways and deal with the backlash of what that does to other people.
I am sure there is a word out there for how he is. His male chauvanist wanna-be type ways. He has NO problem with me working my ass off, bringing home a big paycheck, but in the next breath has no problem letting me know "I don't know .... " whatever it is we are talking about. I'd like to bang my head into the wall sometimes.
I'd give him a link to my blog, but he'd never read it all. Sort of like not reading the letters from insurance about changes, letters from other important, life-altering things like that. Sort of like asking for directions when you are lost. He's beyond that. He already knows it all. So, why read? (banging head into wall!)
