    Default This is funny..do men really think this way?

    Is this really how you guys think?? I am curious

    The Guys' Rules

    At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down
    (I must admit, it's pretty good.)


    We always hear "the rules" from the female side. Now here are the
    rules from the male side.
    These are our rules! Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON
    PURPOSE!

    1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up,
    put it down. We need it up, you need it down.
    You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

    1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the
    tides. Let it be.

    1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of
    it that way.

    1. Crying is blackmail.

    1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle
    hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not
    work! Just say it!

    1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every
    question.

    1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.
    That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

    1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

    1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an
    argument.... In fact, all comments become null and void after 7
    days.

    1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't
    expect us to act like soap opera guys.

    1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the
    ways makes you sad or angry,
    we meant the other one.

    1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want
    it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do
    it yourself.

    1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during
    commercials.

    1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.

    1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, (like Windows default settings)
    peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color, pumpkin is also a
    fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

    1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

    1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like
    nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth
    the hassle.

    1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an
    answer you don't want to hear.

    1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is
    fine...Really.

    1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared
    to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or
    monster trucks.

    1. You have enough clothes.

    1. You have too many shoes.

    1. I am in shape. Round is a shape.

    1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the
    couch tonight, but did you know men really don't mind that?....
    It's like camping.

    In the end, we will take care of only what we drive, we will drive what we love and will teach our children to drive what we don't love (the wife's minivan) so as to conserve what we love (my truck).~~Stayback~~

    The rest of the time they're thinking about how to convince us that they don't think like that.

    Default Then is this really true?

    Men will say they really try to get IT, but every time they think they’re getting close, the rules seem to change. When men get to that point, many feel the following rules, which are written in humor, are very real and true.

    1. The female always make the rules.
    2. The rules are subject to change at any time without prior notification.
    3. No male can possibly know all the rules.
    4. If a female suspects the male knows all the rules, she must immediately change some of them.
    5. The female is never wrong.
    6. If the female is wrong, it’s because of a flagrant misunderstanding which was a direct result of something the male did or said wrong.
    7. If Rule 6 applies, the male must apologize immediately for causing the misunderstanding.
    8. The female can change her mind at any given time.
    9. The male must never change his mind without
    express written consent from the female.
    10. The female has every right to be angry or upset at
    any time.
    11. The male must remain calm at all times, unless the
    female wants him to be angry or upset.
    12. The female must, under no circumstances, let the
    male know whether or not she wants him to be
    angry or upset.
    13. Any attempt to document these Rules will result in
    bodily harm.
    14. If the female has PMS, all rules are null and void.

    Well, now that men know the Rules, they should be able to get IT.

    Default Certain attributes

    Ladies if you were not issued with certain and vital bits of kit--men would assume you were like an "Ashtray on a Motorbike"--don't need it-don't want it. Please do not be offended--it's just a male thing. Think along these lines --you are on a date "Darling, that man over there keeps staring at me" now the fact that you are wearing what passes as a small childs vest, and is see thru, combined with a mini skirt that is just a smidgeon wider than the belt your date is wearing--you are surprised that a man is looking at you? First rule of selling stuff--Show the customer the goods. Its a girl thing!

    Those are pretty much acurate Jenni, which particular ones are you questioning and why do females have this big thing about toilet seats.

    My wife in a fit of righteousness once asked (rhetorically, it turns out ) just what men would be without women.

    I answered with the first thing that came to mind: scarce.

    As you might suspect, I am quite familiar with the doghouse.
