and as much as we like to tell ourselves and each other that we are the cleverer sex… Sisters, I’m sad to break the news to you… they are way more clever than we give them credit for.
They have SO figured us out. They know exactly which buttons to press and how to get us to do things.
The most simplest and unsophisticated man knows that us woman like things done a certain way and once we’ve shown them how to do it a few times and they still don’t get it, we become exasperated and say “Oh sod it, I’ll do it myself!” Mistake No 1 on our part and The Secret all men are born with. If you don’t want to do something a woman asks you to do, just do a really sucky job and hey, presto! She shoves you out of the way and DOES IT HERSELF!
I’ve been watching a few men around me and boy — some of them have perfected the art of The Secret. They don’t even try anymore. Just limply gaze in the direction of what they’re supposed to be doing and the women in their lives go a shoving and scolding and just do it themselves. The scallywags have been playing us… BIG TIME.
I have decided to sit my big fat bum on the couch and even if it takes him three days to load the washing machine and get it on the right cycle, I will NOT do it myself.
We have been had.
