    It's Friday and pretty slow around here so........

    On the average, women say 7,000 words a day. Men manage just over 2,000. :shock:

    So why do women keep telling us, "You never talk to me." Well, if you'd keep quiet for 60 seconds, maybe we would. :D

    Ok gals, have some fun at my expense.

    Why a man can't win

    If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you are a male chauvinist.
    If you stay home and do the housework, you are a pansy

    If you work too hard, there is never any time for her..
    If you don't work enough, you are a good for nothing bum.

    If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, this is exploitation.
    If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your rear and find something better.

    If you get a promotion ahead of her, that is favoritism.
    If she gets job ahead of you, it's equal opportunity.

    If you mention how nice she looks, it's sexual harassment.
    If you keep quiet, it's male indifference.

    If you cry, you are a wimp.
    If you don't, you are an insensitive bastard.

    If you make a decision without consulting her, you are a chauvinist.
    If she makes a decision without consulting you, she's liberated woman.

    If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that's domination.
    If she asks you, it's a favor.

    If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape, you are a sexist.
    If you don't, you are unromantic.

    If you try to keep yourself in shape, you are vain.
    If you don't, you are a slob.

    If you buy her flowers, you are after something.
    If you don't, you are not thoughtful.

    If you are proud of your achievements, you are up yourself.
    If you don't, you are not ambitious.

    If she has a headache, she is tired.
    If you have a headache, you don't love her anymore.

    If you want it too often, you are oversexed.
    If you don't, there must be someone else.

    Good luck! Ask her what the heck she's been doing all day. And tell her that you don't like the way she has her hair. Then report back with us. :lol:

    IronMan....I did go home and ask her what she did all day. Her reply, and I quote, "What the hell do you think I did all day? I run a school district and try to keep everyone happy. And then people like you (meaning peon teachers) come around complaining and I'd like to take a pipe wrench to some of their throats and see how tight I can turn it before their friggin' heads pop off. THAT'S WHAT I DID ALL DAY!...Dumbass! What did you do all day? I know, play games and have water fights with your students."

    She kind of guessed the water fight part as I came home soaking wet. It was 90 degrees and why not?

    Reminds me of a joke:

    Guy 1: I haven't spoken to my wife in three months.
    Guy 2: Why not?
    Guy 1: I don't like to interrupt.

    Actually, it reminds me of another joke, too:

    Q: Why don't women fart?
    A: They don't keep their mouths shut long enough to build up the required pressure.

    lest we forget...

    throughout history, it has been the men who have done the law making, the killing, the entire subjucating of races, and most of the mischief making so if the world isn't exactly how you like it, you have ONLY yourselves to thank!

    :D :D ;) hugs n kisses!

    Well, thaaaaank you 4Packgirl! I've never done any law making (maybe some breaking), never killed anyone, never subtoda'd or whatever any race, but I've done my share of mischief making. :lol:

    So, I've just hit my 2000 word limit for today and with that I'm outta here. Long weekend ahead moving 4wheelers up to the cabin in 2 feet of snow.
    Have a nice holiday weekend! :)

    I wont get Bob in trouble here because everything that has been said is true. Woman cannot figure a man out and a man cannot figure a woman out. But that is what works somehow in a relationship.

    I for one never expect flowers, for one you spend all that money and then you throw them away. Same with cards, you buy them after reading them and them collecting dust on top of a refrigerator you throw them away.

    Woman do talk more then a man, I for one talk alot when I want to, but I also sometimes want a little feed back that I dont get most of the time so then the subject is dropped. And a woman never forgets so that subject may come up again because it wasnt talked through the first time. LOL... I think woman wouldnt talk so much if men truly would listen to what they are saying and that goes both ways and they would talk back (communicate). But I dont go all balistic when it doesnt happen I just move on, I am not one to take anything to seriously because life is to short and most arguments are worthless. We never argue, I know hard to believe but we arent that way.

    I for one love to see a man that cries, that means he has a heart it doesnt mean he is a wimp.

    I will finish when I get home from work I am running late, Bob you are in trouble now...LOL...j/k

    Yes... and behind every successful man... is a woman with a cattle prod.

    Left on their own, men would do nothing but eat and scratch.

    I have a reputation to uphold.

    With that said...


    and throughout history it has been the women who have done the cooking and the cleaning, or as I call it, "The good ol' days."

    Funny. My wife said the same thing about flowers.

    The other thing, we got our wedding rings from K-Mart for $20. She'd rather have a down payment on a house.

    Since then, both our wedding rings broke. We got new rings from the mall for $20 each. So the total for our rings now is up to $60.

    As for communication, women seem to talk more in clues and expect a man to figure it out and men talk more directly and women think men mean something deeper than what they said but we really don't. That's a stereotype, but it generally holds true.

    My wife and I have been married for 26 years. It wasn't until the last 2-3 years that she finally figured out what I have been trying to tell her for at least 10 years. (before that I was just plain clueless to what she was thinking.)
    I can not think that deeply. I mean what I say and I am not thinking on 16 different levels with some subtle meaning to what I just said.
    I am confusing myself right now when I am tryng to type the darn thing. :shrug:
    Women's thinking is so much more complicated. It gives me a headhache.
