What is it with men????????
Can someone explain to me why men (most men) are pleased as punch with themselves because they ... wait for it?... Wash up without being asked. Three times this past year different men have stood in front of me pleased as punch with themselves and said... Well I washed up today without being asked???????. I was supposed to be impressed and found it very hard to stop myself from saying 'how old are you'???????? It clearly is a huge difficult task. And who the heck said it was 'The little woman's' job. Tony bless him is not one of these men..... we wouldn't have lasted five minutes if he had been. In truth, it is a very rare occasion that he cooks. Even when I was working pretty much full time it was my job to make the evening meal. I have never minded that as I thoroughly enjoy cooking,,, I did get a little annoyed in the early days when pretty much everything 'domestic' was left to me. He took a little training :-).... If any men happen to read this blog I would like to say..... Your other half is not your mother.... Grow up and act like an adult. You really can load the washing machine/wash the windows/run the hoover around/clean the bathroom/wipe the kitchen tops/dust and polish........ all without being asked to... For heavens sake your other half will be doing at least some of these jobs most days of her life.... without being asked to.... and without any sign of appreciation. She might also be working part time (or even full time). So right now, I want the men out there to honestly ask themselves just how often they do any of the afore mentioned tasks... without being asked to..... and without expecting to be told how wonderful you blimmin are for doing it... JUST DO IT.
