I've been tagged by ever smiling joy to write about 10 things i hate about men. Hate is a strong word and reserved for those who are scums. Since all the guys i know fall into the decent category, let's just say that there are a few things i love to dislike. After 14years of marriage, you cannot hate, you live with...Everyone has their flaws and no one's perfect...a look at both sides...;)
A few things men love to dislike in women
Chatting: : Give a woman a phone and a dear friend and you will never get the phone back…coming to Singapore has been expensive especially when I feel Delhi-sick and brainwash myself into having a teeny weeny chat with my friends…after sometime…I see hubby doing a lil jig with his watch, which is one of the perks of making the call
Decision making…(have seen a few friends go through this)
Wife: What do you want for dinner today? roti or rice..?
“Anything” the bored reply…
Wife: “help me make a decision…what do you want?”
Wife: you don’t want rice? (I tell you, here she asked for it)
Slowly getting irritated…okay, rice... whatever.you.want!!!!
There… hell has now broken loose…Dinner will now be neither roti nor rice, and will be served amidst freezing temperature…
I don’t do this…I just cook ‘whatever’…
Women drivers… : : There are excellent women drivers and then there are the not so capable ones. There was a time when I decided to relearn. After three 'crash' courses, I've stopped trying to drive, in consideration of my women friends who ARE excellent drivers!!!!...if I’m behind the wheel, it takes me five minutes to move an inch... and then we gallop the next few meters... that is why I like to drive only if the road is clear with no one around. :) Since that is never going to happen, I have sensibly moved driving to the ‘better do before I die’ list…
Women, do you dislike this in men too?
Degree of involvement ...: : Dislike the favoritism towards cricket, soccer and mobile. Really need to direct your interests more into shopping, listening, praising and spending (time, ie).
Small talk...: : I cannot understand how one grunt or monosyllable can possibly encompass all the emotions and responses but it does. It is most effective when uttered behind the newspaper or the laptop screen.
google...: : I'm the google in our house...that says it all.
Attention span ...: : I'm angry...and i'm waiting for an apology...He has the attention span of a goldfish and has already forgotten what has made me angry!!!
Multi-tasking...: : let's face it..men were not cut out for multitasking...that is why managing home and career becomes emotionally draining for women. It does not matter how well we do a task, we will always feel guilty. We also process information better...
Joy, you were right, that was not as easy as i thought it would be... Now if I had been tagged with this 10yrs earlier...hmmm but what's life without some spice, right? :)
rayshma, wian, jlt, preethi (if you have time in chennai, ie), let's see you add your mirch masala to this...i'm tagging you
