Hey Jeff, if he doesn't give a damn, why should I??

We had a Smith's grocery store in Highland, CA that changed their shelf plan every two weeks. They'd send in an army on graveyard shift, et voila! Brand new store. Nobody knows where anything is. Their marketing geniuses proclaimed this to be an effective strategy for selling groceries.

"Funny fact though; Men who clean house, get laid 40% more than men who don't."

I GUARANTEE YOU that's true!! You men wanna know why? It's because after a full day of cleaning up after your lazy ass & working an 8 hour day, she's exhausted.

If you pitch in & help she will not only have the energy for sex, but she won't be so pissed about doing everything herself either.

Or maybe that's what happens when masculinity is under constant attack by feminists and pop culture, and when welfare* and no-fault easy divorces have led to countless homes without a proper father to guide his sons into manhood.

Go ahead, mock me as archaic.

And then go back to biatching about how your man is a wimp and 'every woman feels this way.'

*welfare increases fatherless homes because it removes the requirement for men to provide for their children to ensure they survive. Lesser men who would stick around only to keep their children from starving would bolt when relieved of that obligation by the state.

And yes, a lesser man as a father is still better than no man.

Men also don't care about household chores as much as women.

If it looks clean, it doesn't smell, and it can't make you sick, it's clean.


YES! Someone gets it!

"Funny fact though; Men who clean house, get laid 40% more than men who don't."

Yeah, cause that is like, the most important thing ::rolls eyes::

This is really a poor article. I never hesitate to ask for help, and I'm all about finding the low price. You won't find me having a nervous breakdown in the cereal isle. You gotta love main stream media these days, painting men out to be low intellegent being that can't operate.

Do retailers have shopping all wrong? Absolutely. They have this mentality that men do not like to shop. Seems especially so for the fashion industry.

Ok, I find this article as offensive about str8 men not being able to shop as I do all of the cleaning commercials showcase the moms doing all the cleaning.

This can't really be true. I know there're a lot of jokes made at men's expense, but c'mon...

My dad did all the cooking growing up cuz mom hated to, so I lumped cooking in with the "Dad Things." Like driving on vacation, Xmas trees, etc. So, being able to navigate a grocery store became a no brainer. And if it ain't listed on the directory, I'll go ask.

But, maybe it's cuz I'm Teh Ghey that I can navigate it.

Or I could blame my mom for making me Teh Ghey for making me wash dishes, wash/fold/iron clothes, etc.

Wich brings my Mem Day Hungovered brain to another funny thought. When I was in AF basic and I'd meet these guys who didn't know how to do laundry, cook, iron, tie a tie, etc cuz their mom did it. I'd just look at them and ask, "So, how did your mom expect you to impress a girl? How about getting laid?"

They never had an answer.

No Simpson's quote?

"Lisa, if you don't like your job you don't strike. You just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That's the American way."

The Bloom grocery store near me has li'l kiosks where you can type in the item you're looking for and it will display its location on the store map.

Now you know how we feel when you're "too tired" for sex.

The question is: If I do more, will she suck more?

Honey, I did the laundry, planted your flowers, got the kids and what? No reward?

Looks like someone caught teh ghey...

Dude, pay attention. Shopping takes away time from watching TV, drinking beer, picking at various bodily orifices, and sitting on the toilet. It is a superfluous activity that should only be performed if absolutely necessary.

The smartest thing I've ever done in my life was shortly after I got married: I burned all the bread in the house trying to make grilled cheese sandwiches.

15 years later, I am still banned from the kitchen, and the wife is a great cook. I win!

I used to be a grocery store so... aw screw it.

When I write a list for my most perfect of all husbands, I write it in the order that we do shopping together. That way he knows about when he will encounter a product. If I think he won't be able to figure it out I write out simple instructions. Also that is what cell phones are for. If you can't find something or something confuses you CALL THE MOTHER farkING LAZY biatch AND ASK HER FOR HEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP.

PPL R STOOPYD. Is this a real problem? Aren't people dying somewhere? Isn't there a closet full of dead children hanging in a trailer park somewhere that need biatching about? Jeez Louise!

Priorities...

Saving the environment? Blegh.
Ending Washington corruption? Boring.
Children being murdered by their parents? Plenty more where that came from.
Husband gets confused in the grocery store? OMFG IT'S A MAJOR STORY!!!!! SOMEBODY CALL THE PRESS!!!!!!

Not so true.

If I get up early enough, and I dont work, and I am not super hungover, I will start my day cleaning the kitchen, then the living room, then downstairs, then the bathrooms, then my car. Once you start something, the momentum just gains to get more done.

By the time you hit everything the boys call you up and its time to hit the bar for a nice, well earned schooner.
