Ive seen it in men and women both, less in men though.
This is annoying because
1. that bit of cleaning that got done just before you made a mess turned out to have been a complete waste of my time and effort and Cif/Flash/Mr Muscle/Mr Sheen or whatever, and
2. now I've got to do it again!

Or am I missing some fundamental philosophical truth here :-?? ?

"Patronizing"..?? That's the first thought that came to mind:

My SO loves to do that and we laugh about it. Bonus points for men older than me that patronize my intelligence. :ymdevil:
Is this a very common bear picture. Or did i see it on another users profile ? :-?
@Idiotic it was in the default pictures so maybe someone else used it in the past. #-o It's also a generic picture of the limerbeast.

One more. I don't understand why i don't get company when doing dishes, my request is met with 'what is the point?'. I just want someone to stand there and talk to me while i do the boring chore. Its not my fault she starts helping out of compulsion , then its like i cheated in my turn, and then it becomes a whole other thing.
I don't know if its very common. It happens with a close friend (sometimes with benefit).

Women’s tendency to want to shop. Men are like commandos when it comes to buying stuff. We know what we want, go in and buy it, and we’re done!

Women have to stop and look at EVERYTHING and talk about it.. sheesh!
When all else fails;
READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

There is a male version of this shopping type: exSO was one. Having researched everything on the net for weeks, the time came to go and look at it in real life in a shop. Having got in the shop there was then a load more stuff to look at which confused the picture and necessitated yet more research on the net to check out all these other options. In contrast to the female version, this doesn't involve any talking beyond the bare minimum. And neither does it involve any buying, since the process takes so long that there will almost certainly be a new version out soon which means the current version will get discounted - and so the whole cycle goes around again.
