DING DING DING DING…BINGO!!
If a man forgets to do something, perhaps take out the garbage, he may not be told about his transgression right away. Oh no, a woman knows to wait until the man tries to hammer her with something.
“Why are you late? I said we should meet for dinner right after work. I waited for a half hour, what were you doing, putting on makeup?”
“You forgot to put out the garbage last week. I had to do it or else it the can would have started to overflow! Why can’t you ever remember to take out the garbage?”
See how it works? Women use screw-ups like a weapon, they don’t waste a kill shot on something trivial, they have patience. I guess if you can take nine months to make a baby, you are built for patience.
A man never waits to voice his complaints…he is afraid he will forget and lose his weapon altogether.
Women even wait on trivial things. For example:
Four days ago Mrs. Cranky and I went grocery shopping.
“Is there anything you know that we are running out of?”
“Are you sure? Some things you use the most, it is up to you to let me know when we are running low.”
“Nope, were good on my stuff.”
After shopping, while we were putting the groceries away, Mrs. C yells from the pantry,
“Joe…you forgot something.”
“You’ll find out soon enough.”
“Just tell me now.”
“You’ll find out.”
“Just tell me.”
“Check the pantry, if you don’t see what is missing, you will eventually.”
That was three days ago.
Today I was cleaning up after breakfast. I use a lot of paper towels when I clean the kitchen. Mrs. Cranky complains about all the paper towels I use.
I used the last towel on the roll and went to the pantry for a new roll. There was only one roll left. I brought it out, held it up and asked,
“Is this the last roll of paper towels?”
“Ding ding ding ding…BINGO!”
At least she didn’t call me a jerk.
