Because I am Man

Because I'm a man, when I lock my keys in the car, I will fiddle with a

coat hanger long after hypothermia has set in.

Calling AAA is not an option.

I will win.


Because I'm a man, when the car isn't running very well, I will pop the

hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I'm looking at.

If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, "I used to be

able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and

everything, I wouldn't know where to start."

We will then drink a couple of beers and break wind, as a form of holy



Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup

and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan.

You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you, this is no



Because I'm a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at

the store, like milk or bread.

I cannot be expected to find exotic items like "cumin" or "tofu."

For all I know, these are the same thing.


Because I'm a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will

insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me

twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back



Because I'm a man, I must hold the television remote control in my hand

while I watch TV.

If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it

. . .

. . . although one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator. ..

(applies to engineers mainly).


Because I'm a man, there is no need to ask me what I'm thinking about.

The true answer is always either sex, cars, sports.

I have to make up something else when you ask, so don't ask.


Because I'm a man, I do not want to visit your mother, or have your

mother come visit us, or talk to her when she calls, or think about her

any more than I have to.

Whatever you got her for Mother's Day is ok - I don't need to see it.

And don't forget to pick up something for my mother, too.


Because I'm a man, you don't have to ask me if I liked the movie.

Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't . . .

. . . and if you are feeling amorous afterwards . . .

. . . then I will certainly at least remember the name and recommend it

to others.


Because I'm a man, I think what you're wearing is fine.

I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too.

Either pair of shoes is fine.

With the belt or without it, looks fine.

Your hair is fine. You look fine.

Can we just go now?


Because I'm a man, and this is, after all, the year 2006, I will share

equally in the housework.

You just do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the vacuuming, and

the dishes, and I'll do the rest . . .

. . like wandering around in the garden with a beer wondering what to



Because I'm a man, I will often think that I am right before coming

to the realization that I am wrong since you are always(to you)/usually(to me) right...

and I will continue to think such at first despite always(to you)/usually(to me) being wrong...

because I'm a man.

This is a public service message for women to better understand men !
