Why is that? I've noticed that women's sense of "time" is vastly diferent from men.
"It'll only take a minute!" If I only had a dollar for each time I've heard that. Usually projects that I am told will take 20 minutes turn into hours
and hours of work.
I think it has to do with it being their project. Because they are seeing these projects from their perspective, they look and only see the positive
I look at a woman's project and see all the potential complications and reasons it won't be so easy.
And of course I get yelled at unless I am 100% supporitive. "I told you so" is not allowed when a woman's plan go south.
So in closing, you can't win if you point out potential problems ahead of time, and you can't say I told you so later.
I just let women do their own thing and hopefully they learn to be realistic and honest with themselves over their abilities.
Edit to add:
Curse you Home Depot and Lowes! You put the idea on our wives and girlfriend's heads that we can ALL be master electricians and plumbers! We end up
causing more damage and have to hire a professional in the end because your TV ads convince our women that we can save money AND have a warm-fuzzy
It usually ends in a fight and a possible trip to the ER.
Lets not forget the actual trip to the home improvement store. That usually takes 5 times longer than needed, and also can end up in a fight. Usually
though, it just ends up in more money spent than was intended and a weekend afternoon wasted.
