Thereâ€™s a list out there at thefrisky.com titled â€ś30 Things Every Man Should Have By 30â€ť.Â The problem is, the list is written by a woman named Wendy Atterberry.Â After reading Wendyâ€™s list, it re- enforced our belief and our stance that no women are allowed to submit Menâ€™s Room rules.Â If you think thatâ€™s annoying (and I know you do) another woman wrote an article for Forbes and suggested that people (meaning women) should get time off from work to recover from A BREAK UP!Â *sigh*Â It gets worse; a woman named Tiya Cunningham- Sumter, who writes for the most popular website in Seattle, www.blackandmarriedwithkids.com, (???) is encouraging women to set up their husbands on blind dates with other men who SHE thinks their husband should be friends with.Â Are you f**king kidding?!?Â Ladies, we have no idea what the hell is wrong with you or what you think men should do, so against our better judgment, we decided to go straight to the source and ask you:Â LADIES ONLY:Â WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK IS WRONG WITH MEN?
Miles and I came up with this idea last night (after drinking) and we decided to just do it.Â Yea, we knew some guys would whine about it, but what are you gonna do.Â Men that whine arenâ€™t very manly, so no great loss there, but it was interesting to talk to no one but women and hear what it is they think is wrong with us.Â And this is what they had to sayâ€¦ although they used more words than were necessary.
We only want sexâ€¦ yes, but weâ€™re very clear and honest about it.
Men never listenâ€¦ we do, but women take a long, long time to actually get to the point.Â I donâ€™t say it to be mean, itâ€™s just the truth.Â If youâ€™re a woman, when you go to talk to a guy, speak to him the way a newspaper presents information; start with the point, and then if we have any questions, give us the rest of the info.Â Seriously.Â Itâ€™s not that we donâ€™t listen, but if you havenâ€™t made a point in the first 20 seconds, we stop paying attention.Â We donâ€™t talk to hear ourselves, we talk to communicate.
We treat everything like a jokeâ€¦ life is short and youâ€™re not THAT important.Â Sh*t happens, deal with it and move on.Â If you can find a way to laugh about it, youâ€™ll feel better.Â Not everything has to be apocalypticâ€¦ because itâ€™s not.
Double standardsâ€¦ canâ€™t argue that.Â Men definitely get away with things women canâ€™t, but PLEASE donâ€™t tell me that itâ€™s NOT a two way street.Â Check out divorce stats and explain to me why every guy loses half his stuff and his kids and then has to continue to pay for some free loader?Â Yes, guys are the winners of many double standards and women are the winners of the legal ones.Â Wanna trade?Â Didnâ€™t think so.
We donâ€™t communicate when weâ€™re upsetâ€¦ weâ€™re not out for sympathy, we want to noodle through it, solve our problem and move on.Â Pity is for starving kids in Africa.
We donâ€™t remember thingsâ€¦ sort of- we donâ€™t remember things that have no impact on our lives.Â Sorry, no I donâ€™t remember that youâ€™re co- worker who I never met is pregnant, and no, I donâ€™t remember the new shoes you bought, and on and on it goes.Â Do you remember to put your clothes away?
We fart, burp and scratch in publicâ€¦ yep.
For reasons we canâ€™t explain but truly appreciate, the fine folks at Big E Ales (Ellersick Brewing) in Lynnwood brought us a beer pigâ€¦ that we made short work of.Â Anyway, hereâ€™s a picture of Ted with the beer pig.Â Can you tell whoâ€™s who?
Until Monday, do what you KNOW you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!â€ť
