I do not think that word means what you think it means

Guild chat:

Player1, just come out of a bad PuG: man, that guy was a doush

Player2: that’s douche

Me: lol, getting schooled on feminine hygiene products

Player2: What?

The conversation quickly moved on but I was left with a thought, “Hmmmm…. Player2 is on the young side. Was he saying ‘what’ because he didn’t understand what I meant by ‘schooled’ or is it possible that he doesn’t know what we’re talking about?”

/w Player2: So I have to ask since you seem a little confused, do you even know what a douche is?

/w to me: I know the connotation but I’ve never looked it up in a dictionary

At this point I’m lost as to what to say. I’m sure he knows about the basic theories behind the birds and the bees and the necessary biological features required. But it’s not like he probably ever saw a Summer’s Eve commercial with his mom in the same room. Not like you would know what was going on from one of those commercials anyway. It’s a walk on the beach? What?

/w to me: lol, I just looked it up

/w Player2: and now you know

Remember kids, knowing is half the battle!

    So, quick story for you Arioch, and everyone who reads her.

    I am at home and don’t have this site bookmarked so I go to google and type in Arioch.

    Check this action out


    That is what I find.

    I should have just gone to my page and used the hyperlink.

    Oh, sorry for spam, but when I was a kid, Doosh was a sound I made for one of my GI Joes hitting the other with a punch. Then my mom told me to stop saying it. I didnt know why at the time.

    Me: “Doosh…doosh…doosh….Im gonna get you cobra…doosh doosh.

    Mom: “Would you please stop saying that, I dont like that word.”

    @Darraxus- That my friend is hilarious.

    Actually I learned all about douches when I was 16 working at Walgreens, and I had to Stock them. I also know quite a bit about the other feminine products. A little too much for my liking.

    It’s like working on a potato farm, takes all the magic out of potato chips.

    Douche is French for shower.
    Don’t call people showers.

    I have an unrelated question.

    What’s with the almost-but-not-quite identical Arcane specs Ari?

    Yes, yes I was stalking your armory. That’s what you get for being famous.

    That totally made me lol in a quiet office! Just hope i don’t get busted reading blogs at work.

    Douche isn’t only a French word for shower, it’s also the Dutch word and possibly German.

    Which gives all new meaning for Douche Gel for Men.

    What I find hilarious is that he knows how to properly use the word connotation, spells it correctly, but can’t spell douche correctly and doesn’t have a clue what it means.

    I guess it’s proof of his innocence?
