    Default Men - what is wrong with them? ??

    General rant ahead. ...

    Wtf is wrong with most of the male sex? Are they born stupid or is it something they work at?

    Dh has just spent 1/2 hour making a bed with a fitted sheet, flat sheet and a doona. Not rocket science but apparently a hard task for those with xy chromosomes. He never puts his shoes away - just leaves them in the middle of the living room. He can't iron. He can't plan a meal. He never replaces the toilet roll. 1/2 our home looks like a bomb hit it as he rarely puts anything away.

    I've just sent him out to get me a bottle of wine and if he f@#ks that up I'm going to lose it!! Damn I wish I'd married a housewife! !!!

    Lol!! Maybe our husbands are related!!
    Always finding socks on living room floor. Undies strewn about. He can only cook about 3 things which I've taught him and even then he asks me a billion questions. Ask him to bring something home and he 'forgets'. Won't clean his car even though its filthy! Grr

    I want to say yes they are born stupid but don't want to offend mums with sons myself included...

    So YES some are born stupid, lazy, selfish and just plain got hit by every branch on the ugly tree!

    Born stupid is a tad harsh. Born oblivious maybe! Sometimes I swear they're just completely unaware of what's going on around them.

    Some (like my ex) just don't pay attention... Because they get away with it and know someone will be there to fix up their errors and pick up after them so why would they bother paying attention to menial things? Ex now lives with his cousin (way lazier and more clueless than any man you've ever met) and ex is nice and tidy and organised and competent at changing sheets...

    I put much of the blame on my hubby's mother. When he came to live with me after we got engaged he had no idea about washing clothes, cooking, anything practical! His mum did everything for him. Years later he still asks odd questions about things he should know but doesn't cos his mum spoilt him.
    He's called me from the supermarket to ask me what a leek is??? And asked me what a turnip looks like lol.

    If I have any sons I'll be making it my mission to teach him all the practicalities of life and how to look after himself.

    All my sympathies to you, that all sounds very rant worthy

    Just as an aside though (and as the Mum to a boy!), I think it's his parents who you should be ranting to! If he can't do those things it's pretty much because someone has done them for him and he never had to!

    All the best

    Omg! I just had a bit of a tiff with my hubby because his bag is still on the coffee table...
    He does FIFO and arrived home last Tuesday. I've asked him not to leave his bag in the lounge room but he still does!! It doesn't even need unpacking, it's just his laptop!!

    When I said something about it to him today he said that there was nothing stopping me from putting it away!

    Lazy, oblivious men!!!

    I'm the same as 3cats - I blame the MIL for doing everything for them.

    DP requests an audience to give him an applause on the odd occasion he follows through with lifting the vacuum cleaner and turning it on.
