Let’s face it. We love our ladies but they can be a pain in our butts. We could try and comprehend why they act like they do but that would keep us up nights. It’s just easier to accept them as they are and not try to explain the unexplainable. So here are 10 things that baffle us about women:
THEY’RE CONSUMED WITH JEWELRY
Why do women love jewelry so much? All we get is a crummy ring and we could live without that. Do you know how many hands of black jack and big screen TVs we forego because women are obsessed with shiny, little metal trinkets?
THEY LOOK HOT FOR EVERYBODY—EXCEPT US
When our freshly made up and sometimes suggestively dressed partners leave in the morning, they can look pretty hot. But the second they come home, on comes the flannel pajamas and the XL sweatshirt. Hey—nobody said life was fair.
THEY’RE OBSESSED WITH STRAIGHT HAIR
Why do women spend time (and sometimes money) straightening their hair? They’re under the fallacy that just because they do, they automatically look better. Not true—many women look better with wavy hair—especially the questionable-looking ones.
THEY’RE FASCINATED WITH OUR THOUGHTS
Women think they want to know what we’re thinking, but if they really knew, a brawl would probably ensue. Al Bundy said it perfectly to Peg: “If I wanted you to know what I was thinking, I’d be talking.”
THEY’RE SHOE HOARDERS
Is there a bigger money waster? Why must women have umpteen pairs of shoes that all look the same, when all they really need is one pair with long heels to wear into the sack with us?
THEY’RE CONSTANTLY WEEPING
Let’s face it. Most of us would rather walk over hot coals than deal with those inevitable tears. It’s even worse when they sob for no specific reason—when they just feel “emotional.” Good grief!
THEY HAVE AN UNREASONABLE OBSESSION WITH US LEAVING THE TOILET SEAT DOWN
Okay, we sort of get it—they don’t want to fall in the bowl. But the way they go into a frenzy if we forget to flap the seat down is way over the top. And in this modern world of blurry gender roles, where is the law that says they can’t put up the seat for us once in a while?
THEY CAN’T WEAR A DRESS, TWICE
Women actually believe that people remember what they wore to cousin Tillie’s Bat Mitzvah nine months ago. So they just fritter good money away and buy a new dress, while most of us where the same two suits for decades.
AT SOME POINT, THEY WILL UTTER: “WE NEED TO TALK”
At the moment we hear those dreaded words: “We need to talk,” we ask ourselves why the hell we got married, have a girlfriend or why women were put on earth in the first place?
