Inside the Male Mind

I know they always say that if women don't understand men, then they're just thinking too hard. I agree with this, but I can't help but wonder about some of the things men do. Now, this is not meant to be a post full of complaints (Evan, pay attention to that distinction). I've just noticed some things over the past few years of married life that, as a woman, I don't understand. Through conversations with other women, I have found that the men in their life tend to do these things too and their wives/girlfriends are equally confused. Help us out, guys!

  • If a man empties a toilet paper roll, he will ususally do one of two things: 1. Leave the empty roll for the next poor sucker who uses the toilet. 2. Grab a new roll and set it on top of the empty roll. Seriously!!??

  • The process of "rinse and stack" seems to be too involved for most men. They prefer the "eat and leave wherever I want" method, which inevitably leads to dried on food and a more difficult dishwashing experience later. However, since it is assumed that the woman will be doing the dishes anyway, this is not a factor in the decision.

  • They prefer throwing things in the toilet than in the garbage. Q-tips are a favorite here. Even though the garbage can is directly adjacent to the toilet, it remains the preferred receptacle. This one boggles me.

  • Men hate pillows. I even heard my favorite radio morning show talking about this one. Men get genuinely annoyed when there are "too many" pillows on the bed or on the couch. What's not to like about pillows? They're fluffly, comfy, and make the object they're on look nice!

  • It doesn't matter how many hampers are strategically placed throughout your home; dirty laundry goes on the floor. Bedroom floor, bathroom floor, laundry room floor - all favorite drop zones. Why is this so much more appealing than the hampers?

There are my observations! Ladies, anything to add? Men, care to help decode any of these mysteries? Oh husband is the only dude that reads this blog so not much chance of that one!! Love you, honey!
