WHY MEN DO (or don't do) STUFF
When men do stuff, women always have a complicated explanation for the psychology behind the event. Often, the real explanation is not quite as complicated as they think.
Leaving the toilet seat up
Woman: Obviously this is intentionally done as a passive-aggressive act because he does not like my new hairdo.
Man’s actual reason: “I forgot…wait…you got a new hairdo?”
Leaving dirty dishes in the sink
Woman: Clearly thinks doing dishes is woman’s work, that misogynistic lazy jerk.
Man’s actual reason: “I was going to do them, then the Giants recovered a fumble, and then I forgot.
Underpants just flung on the floor
Woman: Another example of his disrespect for the house and by extension, disrespect for me.
Man’s actual reason: “I was about to put them in the hamper, but then the phone rang, and I forgot.”
Forgets anniversary date
Woman: He doesn’t remember on purpose because it just isn’t important to him.
Man’s actual reason: “But it’s Tuesday, we were married on a Saturday…or Friday…one of those…in the Fall, I think…I forgot.
Drinks OJ from the carton
Woman: He is just too lazy to get a glass and doesn’t care about germs or manners.
Man’s actual reason: “I was about to use a glass but the doorbell rang, and then I forgot.”
Didn’t take out the garbage
Woman: He thinks he is above manual labor, and too good to handle anything dirty.
Man’s actual reason: “I thought the garbage man came on Tuesday…it is?...I forgot.”
He over tips the waiter at the restaurant
Woman: Another example of his feelings of inadequacy, and he always has to be the big man and show off.
Man’s actual reason: “15% is not over tipping!...It was 30%?...I forgot.”
Won’t ask for directions
Woman: He is an immature egomaniac unwilling to admit he is lost.
Man’s actual reason: “I was sure we turned left the last time, I guess I forgot.”
Blew up the BBQ with too much lighter fluid
Woman: In an effort to prove his manhood, he does everything in excess.
Man’s actual reason: “You were talking so much while I was squirting it on the coals that I forgot.”
Forgets to lock the front door
Woman: He just forgets to think because he is so lazy.
Man’s actual reason: “I was going to remember, but then I forgot.”
