5 THINGS WOMEN DO THAT DRIVE MEN MAD

Advertisements

We have been patting ourselves on the back for the last few days in honour of International Women’s Day (because we are awesome) but us girls are nothing if not versatile, so let’s own the annoying stuff we do too…life is better if you can laugh at yourself after all!

5 THINGS WOMEN DO THAT DRIVE MEN MAD/ DOES MY BUM LOOK BIG IN THIS

Here are my husband’s top 5 – the blokes are up next for a roasting…

We don’t order what we really want…I am of course generalising wildly for the fun of it here, but it is a pretty common occurrence for us women to order the healthy option and steal our bloke’s chips/dessert/buttered bread. Seems like no big deal to me – there are always too many fries – but it drives them bonkers!

We wear the wrong shoes…and then moan profusely about it all night long. ‘I can’t walk anymore my feet are killing me in these shoes’ can be heard wailed throughout the city streets on any given Saturday night! Don’t get them started on what we wear for a day out sight-seeing and why our clothes are never warm enough…

We don’t want solutions…most of the time when we sit our other halves down to vent we really aren’t looking for solutions! We are after head nods in the right places, a bit of empathy, understanding and some rallying comments like ‘No she didn’t!’ every now and again. That’s it…

We ask scary questions…the dreaded ‘Do I look big/fat/old/lumpy/bumpy/spotty/wrinkly/stupid in this outfit’ is the number one for striking fear into a man’s heart for there is never, ever a right answer! Almost worse than that but not quite is the ‘Which is better? This one or this one’. I am told that this is less appealing to men than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick…

We nag…instead of just doing things ourselves we have the audacity to ask for the same things to be done repeatedly – this is called nagging. Mentioning things we think our partner should be doing is also nagging as is asking for him to listen/help/or just anything at all. In my humble opinion however, the word nagging would not even exist if men just did what they were meant to do.. Problem Solved!
