boys to men

ok so there are quite a few things that seems to have been genetically removed from the dna of all men when they are conceived...


firstly they c~a~n~n~o~t...look for anything that's missing...they look yeah right...but they can't find anything ~ ever...and i'm the only female in the house...guess what i do 99% of the time...the other day my son was looking for the cookies...not a needle...a giant pack of cookies...in the cupboard...and he couldn't find it...i was directing him from in from of my possie by the tv...

me: look on the bottom shelf

jay: it's not there!!!!

me: it's there...just open your eyes darling male person...

jay: its~not~there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

me: ok, put your hand straight out...move it to the left a little bit...ok...ok...there! take the pack of cookies...

jay: oh there it is...

i ask you!

some other things that i try so hard to teach them...but without any success so far...

put your dirty clothes in the laundry basket...

pull the plug out after your bath...

open the window to let all the steam out...

hang up your wet towel!!!...

don't pee on the lid of the toilet...or on the tiles child!...inside the toilet ok!?...

ok remember to flush the toilet...

did you wash your hands?

i sound like my mother...i know i shouldn't sweat the small stuff...but i can't help myself....my mom had a point back then...i have, i kid you not, probably told them 3769643 times to do the things above...and they still forget...once i tried to make a point and instead of taking all their dirty clothes for them and put it in the laundry basket...i made a pile in the middle of their room...and the pile grew into a mountain...and they walked over and around the mountain but it never dawned on them that they could remove the mountain...i'm at the point of giving up...it's so much easier just to do the stuff and have peace for all womankind...if they could just do these small things...my life would be a much better place...fact...but they don't...fact...

9 COMMENTS....bite me!:

I wish I could defend my gender, but alas, I am guilty as charged. My wife complains about the same things. Replacing the toilet roll when the paper is finished etc etc etc. When she complains it is also not a good idea to be a wize-ass. The wrong comment such as "I thought it was your job" can start a cold war

Glugster said...

hehehe. Well, even though I've become quite domesticated I still seem to struggle to find stuff, yeah, even if it's right in front of me. That's why nobody but myself should ever clean my desk. I know it's messy, but I also know where everything is.

Fish said...

Honey, make them pay. They'll learn

But you see( dont get affended Spear), when a man is grown up, he needs no help anymore. If that isnt so, than he is spoilled, and mommys boy.
I have took care of myself sice I was 7. Yes, 7. And my house is spotless. Baby, the problem is finding a real man, not educating him. Unfortonatelly, there are not that many real men. Most of those, that I knew, died during the war.

spear: i think all south african men suffer form this affliction! if someone ever said "it's your job" to me...they will be decapitated immediately! lol!

glugster: i know what you mean...my desk is a very busy place too...don't touch!

fish: i know i should make them pay sweetheart...but alas i have a soft spot for my boys! war= lol! very true!

Lost-in-Jozi said...

As I understand it, there are two boys in your house, and one female?
Logical solution: the toilet seat stays up! You are capable of putting it down, peeing and puting it up again.
No more of this female tyranny over the seat! Up dammit! UP!

Louisa said...

Sheesh! Good luck with the training Stef. Seems like a losing battle though ;-)

MOGLi said...

seems like a universal behaviour amongst men! LOL.

Sweetass RSA said...

yes mogli...definitely universal behaviour...i should become a scientist and change history...and lost in jozi, sorry dude, last time i checked i paid the rent...lol!...thanks louise...sigh

angel said...

oh how i giggled at this...
my darling damien never even had a male role model to learn these ridiculous habits from so i'm convinced they're inherent to the male species...
