girl logic :: an Observation

August 5, 2007

if a woman asks a man to do something and he doesn’t do it, he is lazy.

yet that same woman is not counted lazy for asking him to do it in the first place

    Hmmmm! The woman is probably already doing the other million and one tasks – whilst the man (who possibly wouldn’t do anything unless specifically asked) is “not” doing just the one task!!!!

    Women are renowned for multi-tasking whilst men are renowned for avoiding chores! i din’t make this up – it comes from years of reporting in the press, and in magazines and from comedians etc.

    Not that I’m generalising of course – anymore than you are.

    Eeeeek! I’m probably up to my neck in hot water now …. i’d better shut up!

    Actually J9 your absolutly right…

    Keep on talking…

  3. August 7, 2007 09:37

    actually you’re both arguing broad circles around my point without bothering to actually address it, holding up a mason jar full of air and claiming it’s evidence of the weather.

    nope. mr. green is not stratisfied. please try again :mrgreen:

    ps – as a journalist, j9, would you ever hinge the main thrust of an article on the word *probably* in the opening statement? πŸ˜‰

  4. August 7, 2007 11:11

    OK, you’ve got me there!

    BUT the truth is I only used the word “probably” to be sensitive to your male feelings.

    Truth is, I believe ALL women multi task ALL the time and ALL men avoid everything they can unless they think it will cause strife!

    Trouble is being that truthful gets me into trouble (frequently) – so like most women I hedge sensitively around the issue – trying not to be too honest!!!!!!!

    PS: My own husband is pretty good at mucking in and helping AND I can’t deny I play the weak and vulnerable female when it suits me (eg I can’t carry heavy bags, or lug the vacumn cleaner up and down the stairs, or do anyhting messy like painting and decorating in case it breaks my nails!) πŸ™‚

    If he ever reads this he’ll kill me – he thinks I need looking after and protecting. Ha!

    I think my husband would be content to let me do the heavy stuff (plumbing, crawling around on the roof, plastering walls) so long as he can do the easy stuff like…

    Telling the kids what chores to do…

  6. August 7, 2007 11:54

    you’re right, honey . . . i don’t do anything around the house, i don’t cook, i don’t do the shopping . . . silly of me to have ever written this post. my apologies

  7. August 7, 2007 12:04

    and any time you’d like to take over getting the kids to do what they are supposed to do, please, by all means, be my bloody guest

    Tina, that is a lovely photo of you in your comment avatar. (that’s the truth. BUT I am trying to change the subject – I knew this would be dodgy when I read what hi’self had written!!!) LOL!!

    pathetic 11th hour disclaimer ::
    it was in no wise my intention to call women in general (nor any specific woman) lazy. merely to point out that women have no qualms asking a man to do something they could have easily done themselves and that their qualmlessness carries with it a touch of hypocricy because they will carry a double standard with it on who is lazy and who is not.

    to all the men wise enough not to even get into this conversation ::
    rot in hell you cowardly bastards

    Why I thank you J9…

    I thought it was time to stop hiding behind Hermione.

    to Brahnamin::

    I love you sweetie, I meant it as a joke, but you couldn’t hear my giggle so I think it sounded much harsher than it was meant.
    You do P L E N T Y around the house… more than I do, I will admit it here. I am truly lazy. But, I love you.

  11. August 7, 2007 16:49

    I would like to be the first to proudly admit that I frequently and shamelessly apply a double standard when it comes to chores. Life is too short to do housework when I could be blogging!!! LOL! especially when I can get involved in such fascinating across the pond conversations.

    Whoops – one of my smileys went wrong! πŸ˜‰

  13. August 7, 2007 17:27

    smileys are fragile. if you set them right next to each other one of them will pop and spill his face out the side

  14. August 7, 2007 17:45

    kinda like me… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  15. August 7, 2007 20:43

    hey . . . you aren’t hermoine any more


    i like the real you much better. :mrgreen:

  16. August 7, 2007 20:44

    god, i just wanna go home.

    i wanna go home and not come back in the morning to fuss with the fishies 😦

    And this proves J9’s point entirely…

    If you read back to comment # 8 where she says “Tina, that is a lovely photo of you in your comment avatar. ”

    And I answer in #10 “Why I thank you J9…

    I thought it was time to stop hiding behind Hermione.”

    We as women… we were observant as we were multitasking on the comments..we were noticing that there had been a change…

    and it wasn’t until comment # 15 that my husband finally noticed…

    “hey . . . you aren’t hermoine any more


    i like the real you much better. “

    i didn’t see comment #10 until later because i when i clicked on j9 on my sidebar it took me straight to comment #11, bypassing yours entirely. later i clicked on the post it self and scrolled through all the comments and saw it.

    but i think together you have proven that men suck so why i’m even bothering i don’t know.

    if you honestly think i’m the unobservant type then you don’t fucking know me at all.

    fuck this day
    fuck this post
    fuck this blog
