Well, if he looked like the guy on the new Polo ad that ivilliage is promoting, then I might be willing to follow his rules.

I'm going to write a book of guys' rules we girls need to adopt and vice versa. I swear!

If he doesn't e-mail back and says he just hates e-mail, does he just hate e-mail, BTW? Don't tell me if it's the wrong answer ;)

This is really funny. Thanks for sharing it. It is so true. I think when I began to understand these things, we got along a lot better.

One correction in our home. We have three bathrooms, and one is mine. Anyone who uses mine puts the seat down when he leaves. Nobody has to use mine, but they do because it has toilet paper, kleenex, and is quite clean. It is mine. The seat needs to stay down or go to one of the others.

This was a fun read.

Taureau,
I don't know if this was meant to be a joke, but it is reality to most guys.

It is my theory that all women, no matter how sweet and reasonable they are 95% of the time, need to be mad at someone the other 5%. If they are married, the "someone" is instantly identified.

That is why when we are asked "Do I look fat in this?" There is no difference between answering "you look fine" and "you look like a pregnant pachyderm squeezed onto a sausage casing". Its your time, take your punishment like a man.

My SIL & daughter have seperate bathrooms. Saves a lot of grief.

Resentments are bad for your mental health.

Men are pigs. Deal with it.
