A friend sent this to me :smokin:

WHY YELLING AT MEN IS USELESS......

When a woman says:

"This place is a mess! C'mon!

You and I need to clean up!

Your stuff is lying on the floor

and you'll have no clothes

to wear if we don't do laundry right now!"

What a man hears:

blah, blah, blah, blah, "C'MON!

blah, blah, blah, blah, YOU AND I

blah, blah, blah, blah, ON THE FLOOR

blah, blah, blah, blah, NO CLOTHES

blah, blah, blah, blah, RIGHT NOW!"

No, they hear something like "you are treating me like crap bossing me around". :cool:

If we say "Come on, you and I, on the floor, right now" . ... they'll supposedly be more apt to help clean. :coollook:

Supposedly:rolleyes:

One time, in a women's bible study, a women was joking about asking her hubby to do chores. Instead of asking to throw the trash she would say something like, "ooh, honey, I love the way your arm muscles look so ripped (or whatever) when you carry that big trash can and take the trash out" (batting eyelashes, dreamy look in face. :D ) And some guys figure out, if they help with the chores more, you might just have more energy saved up. ;)

That's basically what I keep hearing will work . . . keeping a sense of humor and having lots of sex. :D

You......are a funny guy. :up: And actually, my hubby and I have a joke with this. Sometimes when I get out of work I have a million words saved up for him. And when I finally take a breath and realize I talked his ear off (poor guy) I will say "Ugh!" (like a caveman, you know..they only say one word...ugh.) Then I don't say anything else for a while. Ok I'm done....ugh.

The rules is I have to have something to do if my GF is going to drone about about work. Typically I play some COD so I am somewhat responsive to her ha ha. Im just very succinct at times it annoys the crap out of her. Her on the other hand, can turn how she tied her shoes into a 7 part mini-series.

I am so guilt y of this! I catch myself doing it all the time. I saw a sticker that said "fact: men who do house work get laid more often.". I sent it to my husband. The reply? "Prove it."

Yep, we joke about this too. Example: Wife telling her husband something: Honey, you will never guess what happened yesterday (Inhale a big breath),I was wearing red, the sky was blue, the wind was blowning east and the barometer pressure was.........:D (What can I say, we have many words.) BUT get some guys together with a shared liked topic (cars, guns, sports, hobbies, etc.) and they can say quite a few words too.
