It bears repeating

I think that I may have posted this before, but I can’t be bothered checking. And the wisdom is true enough that it bears repeating.

Men Are Just Happier People

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in £20, even though it’s only for £32.50.None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

A man will pay £2 for a £1 item he needs.
A woman will pay £1 for a £2 item that she doesn’t need but it’s on sale.

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from M&S.
The average number of items in the typical woman’s bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women love cats.
Men say they love cats, but when women aren’t looking, men kick cats.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change, but she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the bins, answer the phone, read a book, and get the post.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favourite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

A married man should forget his mistakes.
There’s no use in two people remembering the same thing.

  1. MFG, where would we be without stereotypes? And, for that matter, where would we be without new words?

    (yÅ«’z-yÅ«’zhÅ«-É™l) pronunciation


    1. Regularly or customarily used, despite not having much basis for that use: i.e. the space filling posts often found on IDQCT…

  2. Where would we be without stereotypes? Maybe indilging in a bit more critical thinking? Just a thought.

    Gotta get back to the word creation drawing board.

  3. Critical thinking? On a Sunday? Are you mad, man?

    I stereotypically sit down with a copy of the Sunday Times and watch sport on a Sunday; can’t be doing with actually engaging the brain. Wouldn’t be right…
