Many men that I know are horrible with details. Women clean up behind them and arrange all of the grunt work only for it to all magically come together in a man's eyes. When 9 times outta 10, a woman was behind the scenes, working out the details.

@Havb, you are always giving me new words...PONTIFICATE...YES I like that one.

Expecting me to stop cooking dinner and walk over to see the garage is finally clean again. I don't expect praise for 13 loads of laundry I did the day before or make him look at 2 trash cans full of weeds from the garden. Sorry... our Christmas boxes are still on the garage floor and I know this is going to be my lucky weekend....

Okay, I get this.....and I probably shouldn't! :D

And I *have* some of this......and I know I shoudn't!..... /:)

Can I blame this one on my father too??......Who DEFINITELY had it! :ymparty: :ymparty:

My take: "Hey look kids, your dad can be the breadwinner AAAANNNNDDD clean and be 'swell dad' buying you all the take-out you care to consume! (meantime your mom *really should* be able to knock down 26 loads of laundry while taking care of all kiddie needs and cooking me the best-est meals this side of Paris...)....Aren't I just the friggin' best!???... C'mon.....I'm' awaitin' my hugs and brownie points......" b-(

I hate what is popularly know as "mansplaining" when some men feel the need to explain things that are obvious, I know about as if I were a five year-old child. My SO loves to do that and we laugh about it. Bonus points for men older than me that patronize my intelligence. :ymdevil:

@Mamasita, lol, my pleasure

@NaturalezaMuerta ah yes, mansplaining is the 21st century version of my Dad’s constant pontification. The worst party was getting kicked under the table by my Mom to listen silently. Grr. I get so angry thinking about it now.

Oh I hate that too! Just last week, I was wearing a Prudhoe Bay, Alaska sweatshirt and some (much older) dillhole kept trying over and over to explain to me where it was. 8-|

What annoys me most sometimes is when someone has just cleaned the house , or anything else, and you just happen to step in with dirty shoes, or spill a little from your glass, then all hell breaks loose. Particularly because it was 'just' cleaned. I don't get the connection with degree of upsetness caused by my errors related with how many moments before the thing was cleaned or arranged. I mean, its bound to return to its original state soon. It can't stay that way forever.
Ive seen it in men and women both, less in men though.

Has anyone experienced the corollary to mansplaining, which is the dumbfounded astonishment expressed by a man when he discovers you know something that he didn't tell you? I don't know if this one has a name, but if anyone knows, or would like to suggest one, I'm all ears.
