    ...ha ha! mine too, MS!

    at least we've brought the men out of the woodwork! ..ray; love 'em...

    ... now really must get down the garden to see how the gnomes are getting on!!!
     
  5. choochoo

    choochoo New commenter

    I hadn't realised they were so wonderful. Must be a new model on the market that I haven't spotted yet.
     
  6. Yes I agree with all in OP.

    I am amazing.
     
  7. Nomad, dear Nomad...I must have not met you or anyone like you in real life if that is what 'Men' are like.
    I think this over generalising is leading us all up a cul de sac.
    However
    I have one question for you.



    What is a fendi bag?
     
  8. Just highlighting a group of statements at random:-

    Men co-operate
    ? Men are good parents
    ? Men lead others
    ? Men are patient
    ? Men are honourable

    ? Men are honest
    ? Men create laws to protect others
    ? Men are tolerant and accepting of others
    ? Men are good listeners
    ? Men counsel
    ? Men work together in a crisis
    ? Men respect themselves and others
    ? Men value all life and appreciate nature
    ? Men teach boys to be men.

    Oh dearie dearie me.

    Maybe H.O isn't a Man? Also the other blokes I've been related to, married, met, worked alongside or gone out with..
    My main bugbear with the Men I have Known:-

    they can no more voluntarily clean a toilet than sprout wings and fly upside down.
     
  9. Men can endure great pain?


    ha ha ha!!!!


    How many men give birth?

    Me thinks OP is feeling a wee bit picked upon so maybe we could add Men are often over-sensitive?
     
  10. Or men like equality.
     
  11. You forgot the last one:

    . men talk utter ****** and therefore one should disregard above statements.
     
  12. so, explain to me nomad, oh wise one; if men are really that wonderful, if they truely have all of those qualities and attributes, then why can't they put the toilet seat and lid down again after they've used it?
     
  13. snowstorm

    snowstorm New commenter

    and/or put the lid on the toothpaste?
     
  14. oh good. It turned into another men are poo thread. Whoopdedoo.
     
  15. ...or the soap in the dish that is on the bloody basin anyway - why put it on the basin. ****!
     

  16. We ARE ****, to be fair. But women are bloody crazy.
     
  17. i actually do like men rather alot and can see many of the qualities on the op. My long term ex boyfriend was many of these things when we were going out and i am thankful for that. he even put the toilet seat down!!!
     
  18. Men ( OK this is Men I have Known,given birth to or been related to)
    cannot hit the toilet with their own urine or clear up their own splashes
    have no idea what a clean kitchen should actually look like
    have no wish, urge or understanding about cleaning a shower or bath
    Would never change their bed sheets if someone didn't tell them to
    can polish and hoover a car but do not have the same standards about a house
    Will never EVER take any responsibility for planners, letters in school bags, reminding others about PE kit, check PE kit, make sure they have dinner money or any other aspect of responsible parenting

    aaaargh
    Oh one more:-
    When driving they are in charge and any wishes you may have about speed, over taking, routes or ?? are all disregarded utterly
    Drinking:-
    Same as driving- you can keep your mouth shut and they can do as they like
    Money:-
    the money is all theirs to do as they like- that means yours as well as theirs

    Phew

    And breathe
     
  19. I don't hate men (in fact rather partial to some of them) I think the OP started this off and of course the laydeez aren't going to take it lying down.


    How about saying all the things men are good at?

    I'll begin:
    fixing my computer when it dies
    blaming any accidental nasty smells on when you are out in public


    hmm that's about as much as I can offer

    sorry :~
