MBS Spanko Brunch #287

Hi Everybody! Randy and I dined at a lovely outdoor cafe last weekend. As we were enjoying our meal, two nicely dressed thirty-something women were seated at the table next to ours. They looked to be moms taking a break from their kids. They were close enough that we could hear part of their conversation.

The woman sitting across a narrow aisle from me let out a very audible, "Ow," just as she lowered herself onto a rather unforgiving wooden chair. Randy, who was able to see her face, said the seemingly distressed woman was smiling the entire time, but winced when she sat. Her friend giggled nervously.

In this situation, what would you do?
  1. Find an excuse to engage them in conversation
  2. Make a spanko remark loudly enough for them to hear
  3. Assume your spank-dar is broken and let them eat in peace
  4. Listen carefully for any more clues
  5. Be silent and grateful that the world is full of spankos
  6. Something else?

If you would like to answer our question, and I hope you will, please enter your response below in the form of a comment. At the end of the weekend, I will post an edited summary.

Perhaps you could have excused yourself from table for a couple of minutes, Bonnie, but when you returned, you could have sat down just as gingerly as she did in order to see if they noticed.

#2. That's just the way I roll, though.

Definitely #5. Be silent and grateful that the world is full of spankos. I would not want my privacy invaded and would assume the same of them...but it IS nice to know they walk among us! ;) Sara

I would have sauntered over to them and said. "Good morning ladies. Your smiles, and winces, tell me you both have had a spanking good time. Am I correct?.

Meow said...

#5, I'd rather be unsure than embarrass them, but I'd like to think the world is full of "us".

Hermione said...

#4 and #5. I would probably be all ears in case they discussed the wincing, although that might be difficult if Ron and I were giggling over what we both imagined was the cause. I would never intrude on their privacy, but would be delighted that we were seated beside kindred spirits.

It would be 4 followed by 5. I certainly would be straining my neck hoping to hear something but then be grateful that the world is full of spankos.

Love,
Ronnie

Definitely 5. If someone were to notice that of me, and comment loudly/ask me outright, I would be embarrassed, upset, and would have to leave immediately. I would consider it to be rude.

Scunge said...

5 and 6, the something else would be Robert and I exchanging smiles and maybe a chuckle or two. Sort of along the wink,wink,nudge,nudge variety! ;)

In order, #5, then 4, followed by 1. I don't think I could restrain myself from saying something, particularly if there wasn't a wedding ring in evidence.

#4, #5 & #6 with the last being that if we both noticed it we would grin knowingly & whisper to each other.

#4 then #6 if I heard some spanko reason why she wasn't sitting comfortably. I would say some kind of spanko remark about ourselves to JC loud enough for only the women to hear. It might strike up a convo, but I would never try to stike up a convo unless the other party engaged first. I don't like to intrude on other people.

If it turned out that the woman wasn't sitting comfortably because of some vanilla reason - like they just came from exercising at the gym, then it would be #4 then #5.

Alice said...

#4 - I'm afraid I'm terribly inquisitive (read nosey)and I listen in to other people's conversations all the time - I know, it's terrible behaviour but it is one of my few flaws :-)This would be a potentially a very interesting opportunity for eavesdropping...

Lea said...

#4 and #5, I don't like talking to strangers.

Michelle Carlyle said...

I would have bugged their table and installed spyware so I could hear every single thing they said. But I wouldn't talk directly to them. Even though I'm one of those people who talks to EVERYONE everywhere I go. Still, how fun to overhear that! I don't know any spankos, haven't run into any except here in cyberspace. I would be super tempted to drop the ladies the URL to my blog, however!

Red said...

I would try to listen closely, and if in a different part of the city than where we live, I might venture to add a spanko comment, if I hear direct reference to a spanking. Kindred spirits are always welcome in life. In addition, if we are seated that close, they know from hearing our conversation that theirs also can be overheard.
Pleasant meal
Happy Spankings

A couple of years ago, I was in a store and heard a man in the candy aisle say to his wife, "Ooh, can I have that, Mommy?" I probably wouldn't have thought any more about it, except that she blushed and hissed, "We are not doing that here!" I thought about saying something to let them know I didn't think it was strange, but realized that anything I said would embarass her much more than if I just pretended I hadn't noticed.

So, #5. #4 would be tempting, but I'd try to be polite.

I would love to say 1/ and/or 2/ but in a real life situation I would probably do 4/ and 5/.

Dr. Ken said...

I'd probably try to overhear anything that might be a confirmation of my suspicions. Perhaps she just had a nasty fall. Maybe she had a shot from a recent doctor's visit.

Ultimately I would probably just say nothing and smile to myself as i imagined the reason for her discomfort.

6. Realise that my own precious bottom was no longer tender from a recent spanking, and head off home for my better half to re-kindle the smarting fire which usually burnt in my plump rear !

#2.

"Man, this is a spanking good restaurant, innit?"

His First Mate said...

#4 and#5- But i really enjoyed this topic!

Dh and I keep are spanking life style to ourselves. I would go with #5 because I would be mortified if someone said something to me.

Anon/Keiter: I don't know what part of the country you live in, but a lack of a wedding ring indicates absolutely nothing. I can think of at least a dozen reasons other than being single why a woman wouldn't have on a wedding ring. Best to be respectful of others' privacy.

To answer the original question: 3 and 5, and 4, if you want. Give them the respect and discretion nearly all people want and don't say a thing! But if you want to eavesdrop and play a little game with your significant other, go for it. Just be discrete, for crying out loud.
