Ahh classic stuff women complain about...
let's put this in perspective shall we?
1. The toilet seat.
Ladies, honestly, how hard is it to put the toilet seat down before you use it?
2. The Shower Curtain Rod
Ladies, this is not a cloths line, I am afraid that it's quite annoying to see your unmentionables hung up there.
3. The Angry Red Mouse.
I really don't care what the box says, tampons are not flush-able. Tampons need to be disposed of properly, what a lady needs in a home is a
bio-hazard bag, (you know the red ones?) This needs to be burned after the time of month is completed.
4. Our Area.
If your guy has a specified area, please do him the favor of not cleaning it. We indeed are creatures of habit, if you clean our area, we will be
unable to find anything for quite some time. This will result in this argument...
"Honey, have you seen my (insert missing item here)"
"I put it away"
"It was put away, I always put it right here."
"Why would you put it there? That makes the whole place look bad"
"But I need it there honey, do you know where you put it?"
"I put it away."...
do you see the problem?
If you want your guy to do something..tell him once, and tell him why.
Yes, this is the key to success here ladies, tell us WHY these things must be done according to your grand design. If we know the logic behind your
madness we can best accommodate you. However the reason why is not...
"Cause if you don't, you won't get any"
Sorry, this is not a reason why this is an ultimatum. Us guys frown on ultimatums.
90% of nagging can be cured simply by utilizing a "matter of fact" tone of voice. This voice combined with the directive that you ladies wish us
guys to follow will result in a more beneficial response, let us take this scenario for example
(wife busy doing some household chore wishes for husband to contribute to household work)
"Get the (insert chore here) won't you?"
This is not nagging, this is a directive, if done properly in a passing manner will result in a better environment where you ladies will benefit from
a less resistant response from a guy. This is how men get things done on a job. We don't sugar coat things, we don't give a person an out. We tell
the other guy what needs to be done.
The "out" mistake is something that women don't realise. The "out" in the instance of a household chore is the pet name that you commonly call
your significant other.
Don't say "Honey, (sweety, sugarloaf, Mother (beep) that I spent 80 hours in labor and birthed two kids for, and can't be bothered to take out the
(beep) garbage once a (beep) blue moon, you lazy (beep) what the (beep) is wrong with you? or whatever you affectionately call your man
you (insert chore here)?" as this gives us the out.
