Why do men have to use their shirts like napkins?Why is it so hard
to reach across the table and grab a napkin? We women then have
to pre-treat the shirts before putting them into the washer.If we should
forget that they wiped their cruddy hands on a work shirt the stains are
there forever.But, when men need to blow their noses they reach for the
napkins instead of the box of tissues right next to the napkins.

Now, their favorite pair of blue jeans.The ones that you have to sneak up
on,club into submission and stuff into the washer before they develope
the ability to walk on their own.Then, how the men growl when they discover
you washed their favorite jeans.They complain that the jeans had just gotten
comfortable to wear and you washed them!Now they have to start all over
again breaking them in.

Next, men and their socks.Why do they always walk around the garage
in their good socks?They have a drawer full of old socks to walk around
in,why do they reach for the first pair they find?Why is it always their good
ones?

Finally,the toilet seat...Is it really that hard to put the seat back down for us
ladies?Do you men have any clue how uncomfortable it is to sit down and
get your bottom wet?Speaking about wet,can't you men aim a little better?

I hear ya, Mama Beth. My husband does all those things you wrote about. I give him a napkin with his dinner, and he wipes his messy hands on his jeans....then doesn't want me to wash those jeans. All his good socks are messed up with permanent stains. I have to nag him to take a shower and brush his teeth if he wants to get lucky, because we women have noses, and we can't shut them off at will.

He eats with his plate 3 feet away and then is surprised when his food falls on his shirt before it hits his mouth. He can't remember to put the toilet seat down, can't pick up his dirty clothes, can't keep sunflower seeds from getting all over the just-vacuumed carpet, and scratches his balls absentmindedly in public.

I love him dearly. What would I do without him?

Sounds like your problem is spending time with disgusting guys (or just one disgusting guy). I've never met a person who wipes their mouth with their shirt. I have met a girl who blew her nose in her long skirt though.

There are dirty people and there are clean people. Please don't attempt to over-generalize it only makes you look foolish

Mama... I hate to say it, but sounds like you didn't train him early. Some of those issues should have been nipped in the very beginning. Especially the toilet seat!

I guess I got lucky with the toilet seat thing. We have 3 dogs, so the rule is, the thing must be closed, or there's water all over the floor, so I guess we both have to put the seat down

And if you have a husband that doesn't wear underwear, he washes his jeans after every time he wears them

Ok...I will join in on this rant....


I do have to say....this is one gripe by women that I really cannot stand. I think women are a bit one sided in their demands. Men have to to TOUCH a seat that everyone sits on in order to use it. Is that not gross? Do women not care about their (the men) needs, etc?

Anyways, why is the bare seat exposed EVER? Put that darn lid down! This is to all you men and women! It is gross to have an exposed toilet seat. If that is done, then everyone is happy...and everyone has to work the seat for their needs!!

As far as the "wiping mouth on a shirt"? Ive never been around a man who does that. Ever.


ok...my rant response done

It's 100% cotton.
Our noses and hands are sensitive..



Now, their favorite pair of blue jeans.The ones that you have to sneak up

the ability to walk on their own.Then, how the men growl when they discover
you washed their favorite jeans.


After washing they are all soft and stink like flowers etc. Also, when they are dirty they are stiff. Makes it easier to jump into at 5:00 AM in the dark when we are late for work and hung over.


Next, men and their socks.Why do they always walk around the garage
in their good socks?


There are things like nails, wood splinters and tacks. A good pair of socks are like Superman's cape. They are impervious to such items. It's a guy thing...


They have a drawer full of old socks to walk around
in,why do they reach for the first pair they find?


You put them on top of the others of course...


Finally,the toilet seat...


Forget what I said...

You win.

Are you kidding me..I use to work in a bar and the womens bathroom was aboslutely the disgusting...on the surface a good deal of you act nicely but get some drinks and look out...I also have had some women bosses and it's funny how women complain about men in the work place and how sexually inapropriate they are at times let me be the one of many to say women when surrounded by other women are just as naughty as men however the difference is men don't complain about it...some of the women want to be treated just like men or equals well congragtulations ladies you are on the fast track...well done..

It was meant to be funny and not taken too seriously.
This is a rant you know and I did generalize.

Hi MB,

Men can be civilised, but many choose not to be.

Most of those are simply following a pattern they learned from their Mother's, who usually cleaned up after them, allowed them to be grotty and snotty and have poor hygeine.. because Mummy would fix everything. So they expect the same from their new mummy-character.. their Wives.

At least this is how I see it in the vast majority of Australian men, so I see no reason why it would be different in other western countries.
