Out and About – Week of December 13th

A warning to all men. You only have just a few more days left to do your Christmas shopping. Most men will probably do their shopping one or two days before Christmas. Believe it or not, there are some men that will have their wives do the shopping for them. After all, we all know that women are better shoppers than men. It usually takes me about twenty minutes to get ready for Christmas Eve. I am not a shopper. I usually know what I want to purchase, so I go out and usually purchase from the first merchant I visit. I just don’t care to “Shop Around”.

If you want to get into a good argument, all you need to do is mention to someone of the opposite sex that those of the same sex as you, are better at most things. In my mind, this is a stupid topic to bring up, because there is no winner. Women have a tendency to mention that men never do anything the right way, and men usually state the same thing about women. “Yes, Dear” has saved me from many arguments. Here are some facts about men and women that really aren’t worth discussing, but are worth remembering:

Not all men throw their clothes on the floor for someone else to pick up.
Not all men sit idle while their wives do all of the household duties.
Not all men refuse to stop and get directions when traveling.
Not all men leave the bathroom a mess.
Not all men forget to ask their wives about how their day has been.
Not all women nag their husbands about getting tasks done around the house.
Not all women are cheap when it comes to tipping the server at a restaurant.
Not all women spend endless hours on the phone with their lady friends.
Not all women let their husbands know when their car needs gasoline.
Not all women use the phrase, “Nothing is wrong. I’m fine.”
I’m for equal pay for equal work. I am old school, so I believe strongly in chivalry. I’m also smart enough to know when it’s the right time to say, “Yes, Dear. You are right.”
