Women… can’t live with ’em and can’t live without ’em. That is typically a man‘s response, usually said while shaking his head in bewilderment and disbelief. And he’s usually justified in saying it. Women are alien creatures. Men can’t figure us out, heck, we can’t figure us out either. I’ve done my fair share of head shaking while trying to find an explanation for female behavior. I finally have stopped trying, as long as I understand my own behavior, the rest of the species is on her own. Here are some examples…
Appearance – ladies, dress your age. There comes a time, usually around the time you turn 45, when your belly is not attractive, your boobs are not where they used to be and your butt jiggles like a bowl of jello. Now is really not the time to relive your early twenties. Would you rather be talked of as being a elegant, classy woman or laughed at because you look like a hooker on a four day crack binge?
Bathroom etiquette – read on if you embarrass easily but come on girls, clean up your act. Make a mess, clean it up. Put your stuff in the trash, flush the potty and wash your hands. I’m not going to go into detail as we all know what I’m talking about. Just get it together and clean up your act.
Backstabbing – really… We are the worst. I’ve seen situations where I’m totally embarrassed to be in the same world as these women. They can be vicious, down right mean, petty, catty and uglier than anything out of a Predator movie. I think it’s caused by jealousy and insecurity but whatever the reason, we HAVE to learn to be compatible. Stop being a b!t@# to your sisters. No wonder men don’t trust us, they see how we treat one another and they figure they’re in for it too.
Driving – learn how to do it. Put your make up on at home. Do you realize how stupid you look putting your mascara on in the rearview mirror?? Your mouth is hanging open, looking like your jaw is unhinged, eyes open wide and then you’re flipping off the guy behind you cause the light’s been green for 20 seconds and he’s honking his horn. Think about it… That also goes for fixing your hair. Not to mention the texting (which, granted, the men are guilty of too). We are smarter than this. And use your turn signals. You know, that stick looking thing on the side of the steering wheel column. It goes up and down. Use it.
Proof of love – some women think it’s mandatory for a man to prove his love by sending him to the store for her “monthly stuff”. You know what I’m talking about. Why do that to a man, a man you profess to love. Is it really necessary to cut his “things” off just because your forgot to purchase your own “stuff”? And don’t blame it on PMS, you know exactly what you’re doing.
Henpecking – ladies, open your purse and give your husband/boyfriend his “things” back. Please let your man be a man. Don’t make his decisions for him. Give him the time with his buddies he wants and needs. Let him freely express his opinion. Give him the respect that you obviously demand for yourself. It boggles my mind to hear a woman complain about the way her man treats her when she never takes a look at the way she treats him. It’s a two way street. You get what you give.
Ok, I’m gonna stop right here before I get my blood pressure up and lose the few readers I do have. We all know women that I’ve described here. Just as we all know women that are amazing, kind and considerate. It takes all kinds I guess to make the world go ’round. Just please do a reality check and see what kind of woman you are.
Until next time, I’m gonna be strutting my stuff, proud of the woman I am!
Hugs and kisses…
