Never send a man to do a woman's job!

post #1 of 27

Ok, the hospital pharmacy called and asked if we could deliver three dozen orange rolls, I told them yes, got instructions on how to find them in the hospital, and since hub is cooking and I'm on the front, I sent my dad with the rolls.......he couldn't find it!!!!!! I wound up going back out there myself, and walked right up to it, no problem at all! Sigh, sometimes I wonder about the men in my life, do you guys?

tsk tsk, Cindy. You know men have no sense of direction.

My husband can't do anything either. The other night I asked him to go to the store and pick up a 2 liter of coke. He asked me what store to go to!!!!!

I said, "Which ever one you choose, they don't bottle coke differnetly for each store......it all taste the same."

I love how they like to act independant around other men but deep down, they know that they can't do anything without women!

And you know there was NO WAY they would stop and ask anyone for directions either!!!

Key Example.. Jason's brother.

when in Highschool, his mum asked him to go to the grocery store and buy some canned bean sprouts. -he, like the good son, went and looked.. and apparently pored over the aisle for a long tome before coming home empty handed...

O.o....

She sends Jason.. who walks up to them and is out the store in 2 minutes flat.

Somehow, Charlie, being the type that refuses being wrong.. said.. "I thought you said go get some GREEN sprouts"

now, When he's lost something (all the time) we tell him it's next to the green sprouts.

I constantly tell my bf where things are and a few hours later he will ask me where it is.... he never listens to me

The men in Brendan's family all have this problem where they can't see things that are right in front of their face.

Example:

*Brendan opens fridge, stared blankly for about a minute*
Brendan: "Babe, where's the milk? I think you might be out."
*I get up, walk to fridge, glance in, grab milk that was literally right in front of his face, hand it to him, and sit down*
Brendan: "Oh. I didn't see it there."
Me: "No kidding."

I think your Brendan must be related to my hubby. He does the same thing:

"Talon! Where is the mustard"
Talon: gets up, looks, grabs mustard, hands to hubby, sits back down.

(Yes, he calls me Talon)

Yeah that's all you're going to get because I don't think I'm like that. I think my dad might be though.

I remember FIL (when he was still alive) visiting MIL in hospital. The visiting time chat was going along as normal when all of a sudden he said "how many sugars do I take in my tea?"

I couldn't believe he didn't know!

My hubby and I have similar refridgerator conversations. If he can't see it in front when he opens the fridge, he assumes it isn't there. I have to keep reminding him that the fridge is in 3-D.

Of course, we women have our moments, too. My mom once called me and asked me how to make Roman Numerals in the computer.

That's a good idea!
The delivery idea of something like that.

The pharmacy I work at is not listed on the hospital directory either.

While my own dearest, beloved husband falls directly into the same category as the ones who cannot find the milk in the 'fridge, he is also challenged when it comes to his shower and shaving items ... case in point, this morning:

Hubby is just out of shower, I am in the kitchen making lunch.

"Gaye-Gaye? Where is my Arrid?"

"In the cabinet under the sink."

"No, I looked, it isn't there."

"Yes, it is there, I put it there myself when YOU left it out on the counter!"

"No, I am looking now, it isn't there."

*sigh* "Oh for Pete's sake, Honey!!!"

*I throw down the handtowel and stomp to the bathroom where I open the cabinet and hand him the stinkin' Arrid*

"See, it WAS there and to save myself the time and trouble of having to find it for you again, I will get some string and tie it from your dangly parts so you will ALWAYS know where it is - since you don't EVER seem to have a problem finding THOSE at the most inappropriate times and places!!"

*evil grin and wink*

LOL! Might cause the guys to talk about him in the bathroom at work!


What I love is when they act so clueless-

Mike (sitting on the couch reading) I am doing laundry. I make a pass into the living room to put the runners on the table, and he looks up-

"Hon do we have any popcorn?"

Now he knows we have popcorn, he was with me when I bought it, and I hate popcorn so he knows I don't eat it. He has lived in this house with me for 12 years, and knows where everything is. Yet he acts all clueless so I will go and get his popcorn for him- this time I didn't. I told him to go look for it himself because I was busy-

If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.

Same thing here Tracey....

"Kittylover4ever, where is the ketchup?"
Kittylover4ever: gets up, looks, grabs ketchup, hands to hubby, sits back down.

(No, he does't call me Kittylover4ever. He calls me Lovebug)
