Why Men Are Idiots

  • they get it from their Fathers
  • they are disorganized
  • they think that they have told you something that they haven't and then expect you to do something in relation to their phantom directions
  • they figure that 2:00 a.m. when you are FINALLY getting into bed, because you are TIRED is a good time to look for some luvin'
  • they think that decluttering, organizing and spring cleaning after not doing it for 10 years involves a couple of garbage bags and about an hour of your time
  • they think that their Sunday afternoon hockey game is more important than spending time with the family they haven't seen all week
  • they take clean clothes off the bed and put them on the floor instead of putting them away
  • they figure that women should deal with emotions the same way that they just forgetting about them
  • they stink
  • they don't tell you when a package that you have been waiting for is delivered while you are at work
  • they don't pay attention to the details
  • they leave dirty kleenex everywhere
  • they argue with you about where to go for supper
  • they cannot make a decision if their life depended on it
  • they have no sense of urgency
  • they hold onto decades old hockey trophies that haven't seen the outside of a cardboard box for 15 years
  • they say they will do something and then don't
  • they complain about something and then don't do anything to fix it
Now, of course, all of these do not apply to all men in general and they are not just about one man in particular.  It just seems that the last few days would have been much easier to deal with if it were a week where all the men left.

If you would like to add to the reasons, please do so in my comments....pass the link onto all your friends.....I am sure that I am missing some that I would love to add to the list!

Apparently I love you covers everything!!
Romance = I really love you!!

Mamma Schmoo said...

Oh yeah....and they forget to turn on their cell phones.

Rachelle said...

my 2 cents:

Calling you lazy does not motivate you to be less lazy!!!!

Pissing you off so bad you want to bash there heads into the wall, then half an hour later acting like nothing happend!

Emma in Canada said...

They pee on the toilet seat and don't wipe it up.

Please don't tell me mine is the only one who does that. Though today I did notice he had actually lifted the seat up.

Mamma Schmoo said...

No Emma, mine does it too.

That is another thing to add to the list....
they don't put the toilet seat down when they are done. Ryleigh has been known to toss a shoe into the toilet, I am still trying to figure out why it is always Camryn's shoe though.

Holy crap, you've met my husband!! Or his clone...

Some additions:

They never, ever change out the empty toilet paper rolls.

They don't do dishes, or their idea of "doing dishes" involves placing them will-he, nil-he in the sink still covered with food. Then they run water freely into the sink and you end up soggy food, sodden paper towels, and goddess knows what else out of the drain.

They don't tell you they've used something up until you need it NOW, and don't have time to go fetch more from the market.

They forget they've made plans with you, so they make plans with others and then cancel the plans with you because you're family and can, of course, wait.

Oh, I bet I could fill a book!

Shade and Sweetwater,

Oh, and? They turn on the TV when you are listening to the radio, so you have to turn off the radio, and the TV is always at maximum volume because they want to feel the sound in their spleen.

Then, they leave the room to go to bed or play the XBox downstairs or whatever, but they leave on the TV that you never wanted to watch in the first place!

Or, they come into the room where you are quietly watching how to re-grout your whizzengammits or whatever you re-grout, and they change the channel right before the critical final step. They never want to watch what you're watching, do they? Not even to be nice and keep company.

And? Maybe mine's the only one who does this, but...they will start reading you stories off the Internet while you are trying to pay attention to the telly. Or they play loud video clips from YouTube or wherever, so you can't hear the telly because unlike them, you don't play it at top volume because YOUR spleen doesn't care to hear it, thank you very much!

See...told you I could fill a book.

Shade and Sweetwater again,

They wind up the kids before bed and then get frustrated when the kids are wound up and won't sleep. Idiots.
