To think that it's bloody ridiculous how much research is going into which Doctor to go to for a vasectomy and how little (none on his behalf) it was for me to go on birth control?
I mean REALLY... Get over it and get it snipped!
Happily married, 2 grown kids, no plans for any more (fingers crossed) Time of life I would like to not be screwing up my hormones and reach menopause in some kind of natural state. All he has to do is pick which Dr he would like to go with and in/out Bobs your uncle.
IABU to think Google is a bugger and should be banned from all Husbands on a quest for vasectomy horror stories?

Should add he really does agree/want to get it done.

It's actually incredibly simple.

Special K - fine

'She thinks she's something special' -fine

'Mummy's special soldier' - a dig at someone who is deemed oversensitive by personality, not by any condition.

'Does this make me look 'Special'? -not fine. 'Special' indicates a classification, a shortening of 'Special Needs'.

'Does this make me look special?' -fine, if it's talking about a smart or pretty outfit which is different to your normal outfit.

'It was just me being 'Special'' - not fine. Even if the quote marks aren't there. It's saying 'Oh just for a moment there I was like one of those people.

'Something Special' - ok. Intended to highlight that the programme is a special programme for children with special needs.

See...it's not hard to use the word special in different contexts and still understand that in some contexts it's offensive.
