Husband Rant

  1. Some times I sit back and wonder why I just can't figure my husband out. So for the men on the BB please enlighten me.

    Why do you have nothing to say to me until I am either on the phone, in the bathroom or on my computer?

    Why do you buy all this electronic junk and expect me to program it for you?

    Why can't you make your own doctor/dentist appointment?

    Why can't you remember your families birthdays?

    Why when you repair something do you need a audience, just fix it already? But noooooooooo, why do men need their egos polished on a daily basis?

    Why do you use me as a scape goat when you screw up?

    Ok, i'll stop, he is accusing me of ignoring him which I am by the way, LOL.

    I have wondered these things myself at times. Some of the answers can be found in Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys.

    I agree!
    They should hand this book out with every marriage license.

    Ok ladies, I happened to see this and not all husbands are like this. Although we do like to here we have done a good job from time to time as I imagine you do. As far as the reason why we talk to you while you are on the toilet or some other stationary place is probably because when you have kids it is about the only time you are stationary. The thing about the electronics, I don't know about your husbands but me personally if I buy electronic equipment I have got to tinker with it and get it working myself. I make my own appointments. Now as far as the fixing things I kind of like to get my wife involved in it when I can just to spend the time with her, there is so little of that nowadays, you ladies know what I mean and I try things that she likes to do in return such as cross stitch, I have even helped her make a dress before. Now my question is since we are being stereo typical here why is it my wife waits till I am dead tired in the middle of the night to want to talk to me. I would imagine it is probably the same reason we wait till we do to talk to you. You can give me your opinions. signed //Stuck in Afghanistan//

    I must be one of the lucky ones, mine cleans, does laundry, cooks, all that stuff!! We truly do housechores 50/50! There are some things that drive me crazy though- flipping channels on the radio when we are in the car, wanting me to give him his meds every night ("you are the nurse") and always wanting new toys... you know truck, motorcycle, boat etc.. But, all in all he is great!

    Since we're venting about hubbies:

    I want to pay off a bill, he wants to replace the PC or some other high tech toy (for the 10th time)

    I want to check the TV menu, he wants to channel surf. (This relates to the not wanting to ask for directions thing I think...hehe)

    I want to rent a nice vacation cabin, he wants a fancy boat at the cabin (that costs more to rent than the cabin)

    Leaving dirty socks and underwear lying around the house is one (of many) gross habits I have accepted I will NEVER break him of.

    Oh and from a mother's standpoint....we TRY to break them in right, but they RESIST us all the way, so have pity please...LOL!!!

    Rather than taking personal offense, understanding 'it's not my priority', and keeping a sense of humor about our 'differences' has kept us together and (relatively) sane...LOL!

    Vive la difference!

    *sigh* Honestly, as a man, I refuse to answer the "Why do guys do this?" questions. If you want to know why *I* do something, that I can answer. But answering for all men? Please. That would be like me asking you to answer why one woman does something (and me assuming that ALL women are that way).

    If you have questions ABOUT your husband, I suggest you ask them TO him. I can't answer for him, and I hope you ARE just venting and not assuming that ALL men do those things. If I don't do them (and I DON'T), I don't have any answers for you.

    For example:

    - *I* pick my girlfriend's clothes up and put them in the dirty clothes hamper, but I'm not on here asking, "Why do women always leave their clothes in the floor???" because that's not true or accurate. I also choose to do it, and it takes just a few seconds...unless I'm keeping score (which I don't, but humor me here), in which case I have to get out my mental scrorecard out.

    - I write everything in my daytimer so I don't forget it (I learned years ago that if I don't write it down, it doesn't get remembered or done). My girlfriend asks me to write notes in my daytimer to remind HER of dentist/dr. appt's.

    - I have no interest in gadgets. I didn't own a pager when they were the rage, and I don't own a cell phone now. Just another bill to pay, and I need that like I need another hole in my head.

    - When I need to do/fix something, I'd rather you leave me the hell alone so I CAN get it done, without you getting in my way or asking "Is it done yet?" every five minutes.

    Can you put your husband(s) on here so they can vent about YOU?

    Peace!

    My DH cooks, tidies up the kitchen, & mows the grass. He brings my coffee to me on Sat. mornings & sends me out to shop by myself...says I never buy anything for myself. We share most chores. He's more "into" cleaning the kitchen than I am. I'm the deep cleaner, he's the tidy-upper. I also do the weed-eating & painting, setting up electronics...my talents. Complaints? Nah...that would be pointless. He's too good to gripe about. My family thinks he's pretty strong to put up with my clutter. We're both quite human, that's for sure!

    have a great weekend! I sure intend to!

    There are ways of getting even. Wake him up at 2am and ask, "if I die will you get married again?"

    If my wife woke me and asked me that, I would just say "I'v told you before, only if my wife dies".

    Hey "Stuck"....

    Okay, maybe you are the exception to the rule! Your wife waits to talk to you because the middle of the night is the ONLY time she probably has free for discussion!!!!!
