I always wonder, when i talk to male or female friends – about computers or dish washers, juicers, telephones, even about glasses or anything
Anything that comes along with a manual!
My female friends just read the manual, and know how to use the new item in the house.
They live happily with them until they have to buy a new item which they welcome by reading the manual again!
Not so the male friends.
I have the feeling that this is a default that comes along with manhood.
Maybe it is a gene park on the y-chromosome?
I don.t know really, but i would like to understand.
Men just don.t read manuals!
They just don.t do it!
They also don.t bother to read maps …… the female right next to him has to do it, and will be blamed if the direction is wrong, but if so the man
will never ask somebody for a direction.
What is it about?
Do men think it will hurt them?
Maybe reading a manual will make them female all of a sudden, they might lose their male parts?
I mean why don.t you guys feel comfortable with reading manuals, maps or instructions?
Think of the time you are wasting in trying to solve a problem, to set up a new tool and finding out it doesn.t work they way you think!
Even experts have to admit that todays washing machines, dish washers, cars, cameras not to talk about computers and stuff, are getting more and more
It isn.t even easy for them to repair them as it has been 20 or 40 years ago.
So what …… is it about the fear of reading a manual?
Nobody is hurting you!
Life will be much easier if you read them!
And nobody expects that you are inventing the wheel again and again each day.
But as a woman i expect that the stuff in my house is able to work, to functionate, and not laying there in pieces because the man next to me refuses
to read a manual ………
so tell me ……
