As you may recall a few weeks back I posted a rant on gender differences and the subject of everything has a place and should be returned to it.  Unfortunately,  I posted a picture showing my side of the bathroom vanity which showed 5 items neatly arranged and her side piled knee deep with dozens of items many of whose purpose would be unknown to most males. Needless to say Mrs. T was ticked. She demanded an opportunity to respond.  

Why Men Have It Easier (according to Mrs. T.)  Actually the list was too long to copy in its entirety.

 The garage is all yours.

 Wedding plans take care of themselves.

 Chocolate is just another snack.

 You can never be pregnant.

 You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.

 Car mechanics tell you the truth.

 The world is your urinal.

You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.

 You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.

 Same work, more pay.

 Wrinkles add character.

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

 Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars.

 You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

 If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can  still be your friend.

 Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.

 Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.

 You almost never have strap problems in public.

 You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.

 Everything on your face stays its original color.

The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.

 You can play with toys all your life.

 You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.

 You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.

No wonder men have it easier…..

My wife had a refrigerator magnet that said "No husband has ever been killed while doing the dishes"
She would have liked this post.
