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


Sorry might have taken it too seriously. This debate always gets to me though, I've met some VERY dirty girls in my time...especially in college

Heck we men could make a long list of everything women do that annoy us.....but the women would only bring it up 4 years down the line...

Testosterone, primal validation, and because our minds are occupied with more important things, most of the time. Sometimes we like to keep things simple. Some may say lazy, where I would say efficient.

Oh, I also wash ALL my clothes together, colors whites, towels and jeans, yup!

I would agree that men choose not to...I would also say that unfortunately at times the period of impressing someone goes away rather quickly...many of us looked great in the begining of our relationship however some of us choose to fall apart but for whatever reason that is suppose to be ok...I would say it's not and the same should go for acting civlized...or maybe we can work out a deal....ladies put down the ben and jerry and I'll remember to put the seat down..

I wanna jump in this one, why do men get their hands greased up from food, and pass you things?

Licking your fingers, does NOT mean clean, it means (a little) less dirty.


Ive broke more glasses getting things passed to me, then I care to admit, and why doesn't it break in his hands? Greasy mouse (from the computer), remote, and even napkins. How do you use a napkin, just from passing it?


Toilet seat? You can always get a child safety seat.

Oh men, your so cute


Peace, NRE.

Very nice response greeneyedleo! Thanks for taking our side! I'm one who actually will close the entire thing though. Seat and lid after each use. Maybe it's just me, but I get paranoid of something falling into the toilet or knocked in by one of our cats.

Also.....even clean toilets are gross, I really don't want one of our animals trying to get into there or drink...especially since I have a chemical tablet in the tank to help keep the bowl clean.

In my case it would be coffee and little debbies.
Ahhh,banana moonpies and I do sometimes get
crumbs on my shirt.
I forget to put towels in the bathrooms after I do
laundry.
I have reached for the napkins as well when I would
sneeze.
I walk around the house in socks, BUT,they are old
ones.
I hang my denim skirts on the bedposts in our room.
I leave the clean laundry on the floor in front of the fireplace.
I leave the vacuumn cleaner out sometimes too.
I spend too much time here and have to hurry up and
cook dinner.
I have made many soup and sandwich dinners for my hubby.
I need to clean my office before the dust bunnies develope
language skills.

To see if you've learned the way of the Jedi...

It adds flavor.

We've been trained by the best.

Our Dads



Greasy mouse (from the computer),


Requirement for head shots.

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 care for the enviroment , We know a shirt will be in the wash anyway, but that napkin , one time use.

productivity !!!






We women then have
to pre-treat the shirts before putting them into the washer


i don't even know what this means lol





But, when men need to blow their noses they reach for the
napkins instead of the box of tissues right next to the napkins


tissues = weak , napkins stronger can take more of our man juice without tearing into a black hole.





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.


your violating our flow and connection we have with those jeans! after a wash , its like a friend who got beaten up that you don't recognize because of all the scars, but will take time to heal and get back into the groove :p






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


lol because they magically get clean most of the time , so we don't care . Secondly its a great cleaner no ? Less work to clean up the flooor , as we mop it up with our socks! come on now productivity





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?


Thats because you ladies have to kindly put it two sets , used out set , new set. But if used socks all the way in the back , whos gonna grab ? Its the good ones because we like clean soft fluffy which = longer use. Put the good ones in the back!






Finally,the toilet seat...Is it really that hard to put the seat back down for us
ladies?


We don't complain when we have to put it up , why its down all the time :p Just return the favor !

Is it really that hard for you to put it up after use ? you don't care about the next guy , neither do we lol






Speaking about wet,can't you men aim a little better?


Totoally agree , we got amazing flexiblibity with that bad boy , we can move it around any which way we can .

the bowl is not even that far ! yet we are sooooo lazy we just don't care and guesstimate a good spot even if it splashes everywhere!

i know this part i agree with . We surley can't be this lazy ! but i don't know how else to explain it . Its not like its a hard target ! its not like its 10 feet away ,

its like a whale diving into lake ontario , how can you miss right ? just lazyness to give it proper control!! whats the worse is when it splashes on to a tile floor , may men don't even bother to clean it up
!


i'll have to agree with you on the last point .
