Women are from Venus and men are from Mars. I guess everybody is familiar with this and if I am not mistaken, it is the title of a book even. Now, are women and men really so different? A friend of mine emailed me something that I found quite amusing and would like to share it with everybody here.
One of the things mentioned is how a woman marries a man expecting that he will change, but he doesn’t. On the other hand, a man marries a woman expecting that she won’t change, but she does. And in this same connection, a woman worries about the future until she gets a husband while a man never worries about the future until he gets a wife…and while a successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend, a successful woman is one who can find such a man. LOL!!!
When it comes to spending, a man will pay RM2 for a RM1 item that he needs; a woman will pay RM1 for a RM2 item that she does not need…but it’s on sale. Quite true, don’t you think? Hahahahaha!!!! And when eating out, when the bill arrives, the men will each throw in RM50 – none of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit that they want their change back. Women are different. When they get the bill, out comes their pocket calculators!
In the bathroom, a man has five items – a toothbrush, toothpaste, a razor, a bar of soap and a bath towel. The average number of items in a typical woman’s bathroom is 337 and a man would not be able to identify more than 20 of them. But never argue with a woman! She will always have the last word…and anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument!
Now, how many of you will agree with this? Men wake up as good-looking as when they went to bed but somehow, women deteriorate during the night. Whatever it is, I definitely do not agree with this: that a woman knows all about her children – their friends, their teachers, what they like to wear, their favourite food, their fears, hopes and dreams…while a man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house. Hahahaha!!! Actually, once I congratulated a father whose daughter scored straight As in the PMR Examination and he replied, “Huh? She’s in Form 3 already kah?” It certainly looks like there’s some truth in that after all.
And what do you think about this:
A woman did not come home one night. She told her husband that she had slept over at a friend’s house. The man called his wife’s 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it…but when a man did not come home one night and told the wife that he had slept over at a friend’s house, and the woman called 10 of her husband’s best friends, eight would confirm that he had slept over…and two would say that he was still there!
Here’s what Rex Harrison as Professor Higgins in “My Fair Lady” thinks about women…
A married man should forget his mistakes. There is no use in two people remembering the same thing.
Have a great weekend, everybody…and a Happy Easter!!!
