Understanding Women 111

*Disclaimer: this is the first post (and probably only post) where Gary gets to have his opinion broadcast*

I know for sure that the one trait Gary (the fiance) envies the most is my ability to see all and know all without blinking an eye. I’m not sure if it’s a “woman” thing or if it’s just an inherent ability of being ultra observant.

Gary regularly asks me where this or that is, and 9.5 times out of 10, I know exactly where it is. Now usually when he asks if I’ve seen something, I reply asking if he’s looked for it…properly. “Oh yes! I’ve looked high and low!” is the response I’m often met with. Let me tell you a little secret guys and gals, when a man says he’s “looked” for something, it generally means he’s opened up the cupboard or drawer, stared at the contents willing the item he’s looking for to appear, and when it doesn’t, he closes the drawer or door and thinks that he’s looked adequately. He doesn’t believe that searching actually requires moving things out of the way. I suppose Gary has been spoiled with my GPS-like abilities…

Gary’s response:
Bullshit! The reason why a guy can never find what he’s looking for in a cupboard or drawer is because it was likely arranged by a woman. And therefore there is no system or logic to it at all. When a guy arranges a cupboard, he’ll do it in such a way that it makes sense so that at a glance he can tell if something’s there or not. Any other guy who looks in another man’s “man drawer” would instantly be at home and able to find what he’s looking for. So this whole business about men not being able to look properly is a fallacy.

My response:
Gary packed his own cupboard so he should bloody well be able to find his stuff. And even if he moans that our domestic puts his things away, the clothes are still in the piles he created. So there!

  2. Whaaahahahaha this is hysterical. I usually answer “it’s exactly where you left it” because 99.8% of the time it is!!
