Guys Rules

on Saturday, May 2, 2009

Typically, I have a firm rule that I don't spam or post anonomous work BUT ..... there is almost always and exception to the rules and this is it. We laughed so hard over this one, fluid was forced from our body ....

Tears folks!!!

You were thinking something else, weren't you ..... but it WAS very close.

Thankyou whoever you are who wrote this. You are very clever ....


We always hear "the rules"f rom 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. 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. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor

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 won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

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.

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 defaul t 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's 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, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.

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

These were good, but I think the winner has to be, well, number 1. Actually, it was this one: " If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong." Boy, I messed up on this one a lot through the years. I admire your work mentoring youth. I wrote an article on that last month. I'll be you guys would have a lot to write about this subject, and if you have already done so, I'd like to read it. I'm trying to get some mentoring going at my church. God bless.

Thank you SanDe for your visit to Family Fountain and your comment on the mentoring article. I look forward to reading some of what you can write on this topic.
