Letting the Ladies Know the Man Rules

Yes, this is a Mom blog, but you know you just have to give a little love to the men in our lives so today I'm posting some Man Rules just for our hubbies! Take note and hopefully you get a kick out of them as I did! Happy Saturday everyone!

The Man Rules - Part I
At last, a guy has taken the time to write this all down
FINALLY, the guys' side of the story. 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. Men are NOT mind readers.
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. 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 think you're fat, you probably are.
Don't ask us.
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.

The Man Rules - Part II

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 is 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 or golf.
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.

Those were great LOL! I loved the one about don't ask what's on our minds unless you are prepared to talk about golf or baseball. And the one about don't ask a question you don't want an answer to or something like that...too funny!
