The difference between men and women

Recommended Posts

Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, 'I'm tired, and it's gettinglate. I think I'll go to bed'


She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for dinner thefollowing evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar containerand put spoons and bowls on the table.


She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into thewasher, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on thecharger and put the telephone book into the drawer.


She watered the plants, emptied a rubbish bin and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the deskand wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for an excursion, andpulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.


She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelopeand wrote a quick note for the grocery store.


She put both near her purse. Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution &age fighting moisturiser, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.


Dad called out, 'I thought you were going to bed.' I'm on my way,' she said.


She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then madesure the doors were locked. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps andTV's, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the basket, and had abrief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day,straightened up the shoe rack.


She added three things to her 6 mostimportant things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualised theaccomplishment of her goals.


About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one inparticular. 'I'm going to bed.'And he did...without another thought.Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?CAUSE WE ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL..... (and we can't die sooner, we stillhave things to do!!!!)

:lol::lol: Do you know, I do that every evening?

OH asleep on the settee, 'watching' footie. I say - 'I'm off to bed'. By the time I've done most of the above, he is in bed snoring his head off! :evil::roll::lol:


I have tried just going to bed and not doing anything. Next morning I get 'you forgot to lock the front door/ put the milk bottles out/ turned the TV off' :roll:

this is just untrue. Everyone knows that you have to check your emails before you go to bed.


The rest is fine tho - and whats wrong with that? If we did all the other stuff what would women do? Every thing is put on this planet for a purpose.


I don't know. Got the vote and the rest... We've even had a woman Prime Minister (and look where that got us!). Will you never be satisfied?

Its liek that here whent he kids go to bed. He helps get them ready for bed then goes downstairs. I read their stories and tuck them, go downstairs load the dishwasher wipe the tabole etc etc then go and join him in the living room where hes been sat watching tv since he came downstairs. Hes always watching something rubbish and is halfway through it and so I end up on here.

:clap: Claret that is brilliant, given how my post op thread has been going I couldn't agree more. I think that I'll print it off & stick it the TV screen for OH to read ! :lol:


I have to admit that I thought of you Anne. :wink: I'm afraid that If I lived with your OH, he's end up with a frying pan round his head!


I'm a veritable whirlwind of activity every evening, hence no time to watch telly or sit and read. If Phil ventures down to my house, then he has to make himself useful :lol: Either that or chat to me while I'm cooking, washing up, making packed lunches, doing the ironing........


If I don't so it, then it just doesn't get done, it's thta simple :roll:

:lol::lol: Don't start that one off again - that was the subject of quite a debate. The seat stays firmly down in my (ladies') house and men have to sit!!!


Many years ago I lived in a shared all women house. On the underside of the toilet seat was written "Goodie, goodie there's a man in the house" :shock:




oh that made me chuckle :lol:

I regret the day that my hubby showed DS that it was possible to pee standing up. It was not just the toilets I had to worry about because he also showed him that little boys can pee in bushes when no toilet is nearby. This caused great hilarity at pre-school when he stood up in the little tykes car that he was in,dropped his trousers and relieved himself out of the window, he was outdoors at the time. Fortunately they saw the funny side but I was so embarassed when they told me :oops:

I have to stick up for my hubbie here. He is one of the rare diamonds.


He has to do the cleaning (apart from once a week when the cleaner comes), the ironing, bathing and putting the children to bed, walk the dog, clean out the litter trays, look after the chickens etc etc etc. Admittedly the house is a disorganised state, and he only does it because he has to (he promised to do everything if we could have kids because I have M.E and he's stuck to his word) but I always feel for him when blokes are being had a go at, as he's so brill :D (yes, I am smug! :lol: )
