OH! So absolutely true!

Goofball said...

looks like we had a similar thought in mind

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

FC, I think most women may think this, lol. I'm worried about getting angry guys on the site today...

I haven't been to your site yet, Goofball - I guess I'll head there now.

citizen jane said...

Totally agree. I have taken to throwing in statements like "my hair's on fire" when I sense I'm not being listened to. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Men.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Ooo... I like that tactic - I'll have to try it!

cablegirl said...

oh yeah,the chief source of argument between myself and CableDad. lol

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

CG, I think that's true of many families...

April said...

LOL - yep, one of the things I miss least about living with a man!

anno said...

I know what you mean... thank God for my girlfriends!

Gotta say, though, my husband's "fix-it" impulse comes in handy sometimes...

Kate said...

Oh my god that is so true... even when you think they are listening... they aren't!!!

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

April, yes, I can imagine that!

Anno, well, the fix it thing can be okay sometimes - it's more when I say something and he has the expression of all those high school students in the econ class in Ferris Beuller's Day Off.

Kate, yeah, there seems to be a lot of agreement today, lol.

BuzzeeDad said...

what? did you say something?

;)

Leslie said...

My husband would tell you that I'm the one that doesn't listen. But he always wants to talk when I'm blogging!

painted maypole said...

oy. no kidding.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Right, Jim, right... ;-)

Well, Leslie, that's the flip side of it. I mean, where do they get off expecting US to listen? Hmmmm? ;-)

LOL, Maypole, I seem to have struck a nerve with this post!

Los Angelista said...

I think I have to repeat something at least three times before my husband gets it. I think he hears it but his listening comprehension skills are in the toilet sometimes!

Jenn in Holland said...

Buzzeedad's comment is HILARITY! Love it.
I hear you, Jen. I hear you.

Nice combination of the two themes - and so true!

Mariposa said...

Hahaha, so true! Happy weekend Jen!
