Because We're Idiots...

Men. Simply put, we’re idiots. And it doesn't pain me to say it because it has been proven time and time again. It is one of the true things in this world that cannot be changed. As males, most of us do not make great decisions, except of course for the decision to be with you.

Since the dawn of mankind we have been stubborn, stupid creatures. Left alone, we will eat pizza, drink beer and watch sports. That's it, and we will contently live out our days doing so. We will communicate through a series of grunts and one word answers, and never, ever express our feelings.

A woman in our life helps us grow and become better men. As the old saying goes, behind every great man there is a great woman. And that woman is right most of the time. A guy may have a Nobel prize sitting on the mantle and yet has never won an argument with his wife.

Progress isn't easy, we will fight it as long as we are able to do so. We will kick and scream until all we have left is the argument. And then we lose that. Women are better equipped to win an argument than men. Most of them think before they speak, or see beyond the next few days. They can see into the future like some sort of Wit---, uh witty person.

When my wife and I get into an argument, I will passionately argue my case, trying to prove my point. Most of the times I will make a huge fuss and production only to find out later that she was in fact, right all along. Now I can’t just admit that I was wrong after expending so much energy fighting for my cause and what I believed was right, so I have to continue to fight, despite being once again, in the wrong.

Sometimes I will continue to argue, going on and on as I state my points and make my case. As I get on a roll, I catch fire and cannot be stopped, my voice getting stronger as my confidence mounts. Finally, I look over at my wife and notice her staring at me, curious as to when I will stop having a conversation with myself. I feel foolish and childlike, I want to stomp off and out of the room. She was right.

Other times I look for a loophole, a technicality that allows me to save face. This way I don’t have to say it, you know…it, anything to keep me from saying it yet again. Didn't I just say it last week? You’re right honey. Yeah, that hurts. I was wrong once again….again!

Maybe it's in the DNA, a flaw in the Y chromosome. I've read about a woman who was born with male DNA and female parts, talk about an inner struggle. This poor woman has never won an argument with anyone.

Maybe it all started when Eve gave the I told you so look to Adam. The patented look that says, you’re an idiot. The worst part is that, yes, we are idiots. We don’t care about hand towels, paint color schemes, window dressings or matching frames. We care about fourth quarter comebacks, pizza, and the lawn mower. We are truly simple creatures.

As for women who wonder why we continue to argue, I suggest you that you just be the bigger person and let your husband/boyfriend have the last word. He’s probably so sick and tired of trying to argue with your logical points he’s exhausted. Let him use words such as So, or Whatever, this may be all he has left in his arsenal. Deep down he knows your right, again, just don't make hims say it...

      This was so funny, I like a guy who can admit when he is wrong, even if he won't admit it to the lady of the house. I'm like your wife I just let him rattle on and then walk away without a word. That always puts an end the argument and the subject is NEVER brought up again... I wonder why :)

      Loved reading this humorous piece

      Oh I foresee this hub being forwarded to my dearly beloved....Whether he admits it or not, this hub will indeed be a great conversation piece. Very humorous, yet there is some truth behind it. although I am a woman, so my view is of course the correct one. :)
