      I am in need of a good moan today. The kids flooded the kitchen. There is toast crumbs all over the floor and the lights were left on all over the house. I guess that leaves me home alone to clear up behind everyone. Well I'm not, I am going shopping LOL.

    Why do men love football so much, and neglect us because of it

      RedSonja94posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I'm the one that loves football in our house.  I just wish my hubby would let me watch without complaining so much!  And going to my son's games is always an arguement with hubby.

          My hubby is far from perfect.  He leaves his clothes every where, doesn't help around the house and drives me nuts with his bad temper.  In all other respects outside of football he is all man.  And all pain in the butt.

    My immediate and "immediate extended" family is pretty much all male except for me, my daughter, my sister, and a couple of other women/girls; which may be why, even though I absolutely adore a good number of the men in question, I thought the following refrigerator magnet was funny:

    "So many men.  So few aspirins."

    (Now I feel guilty for posting that little joke because the guys in my life are really decent, good, and sometimes even thoughtful (lol) people.  Oh well - anything for laugh, as they say.)  (Shhhhh - but a few of them really do give me a headache at times.  smile  )

    Now I am on a roll. TOWELS. Towels on the floor in the bathroom. last time I dared to enter there were at least 50,000 sodden wet towels on my beautiful wooden floor. Why can't they pick them up? Why do they need 20 each time they shower? And why do they use all my expensive products to wash their bits. Ew!!!

      \Brenda Scullyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      men   they always use loads of towels, because they feel the cold.... They cannot stand to get wet and not be all wrapped up as soon as they get out of the water.  Babies. buy them cheap stuff from the pound shop, and lock your lovely stuff up.  I think you need a medal for all your men in the house, you are wonderful

  24. Lisa HW profile image82
    Lisa HWposted 7 years ago

    I had a friend who made an observation about her husband; and I have to see I've observed it in a few guys, as well.  She always said, "Whenever he gets a cold it's never a 'regular cold'.  It's always something 'more serious'; but if I get a cold it's always 'the sniffles'" (as far as he was concerned).  The same woman would often say, "I can never be sick alone.  Other people can be sick alone, but if I get sick he somehow manages to be sick too."  lol   I'd add one more to her observations:  When women know their child has come down with something they are worried about the child.  When "certain men" hear their child has come down with something their first remark is often, "I suppose that means I'll get it too."  lol

    We had a lot of chickens when I was a kid. Hens and a few Roosters. The noise they made when they got together for a gathering was like this thread. I would just laugh at them as they gossiped and clucked about their lives. Once in awhile a fight would break out over a grasshopper or who gets what nest, but they always had their little get together and seemed to sort out all of life's problems.
    When they had babies, they were much to be respected and demanded it too. Funny thing is how upon laying a little egg they would cackle as if they laid an asteroid! I don't think it was from pain, I think they just were so proud. Love hens.

      rednckwmnposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      and the rooster too, how he crow's to get all his ladies, and dont they come running? Chickens are so funny. I have sad news, a fisher or weasle got in to my barn and my poor poor rooster, he's left with one hen...
      Sometimes here in my little world, I feel like the last hen standing...
      I don't know why it is or if its the same for men, somehow I think maybe not, but women get lonely without other women. I love my man, I can not imagine life without him, but there are some things he just CAN NOT sympathize with, nor does he even want to.

      Thanks. He is doing better these past 2 days, but it was quite hard on him at first. I have a younger set of hens, but the hatchery accidentaly sent a rooster with them, I am afraid therer will be fights. before it was ok, as the older group had 6 hens and a rooster, and the "babies" had 5 hens and a rooster, they all kept in thier seperate groups. I am considering getting some more full grown hens for him, before winter, but I dont know how good that would work?

        Really my new boyfriend is in a band so I haven't had to go to a sports bar in months! But seriously, I spent years in sports bars and I LIKE BOOKS, not sports....I've always been a nerd smile

    Come on girls! Why are you all complaining about why a guy does this or that! You're the ones with all the power! You can make us do whatever you want, you simply have to get better at learning how to use your power for good!
