What happened in our home a few minutes ago is a perfect example of one of the many differences between men and women and if nothing else, it succinctly illustrates the very real fact that men do NOT listen with their full attention when we speak.
I was cleaning the bathroom this morning.
Hub was in the garage.
I walked out to the garage and said to him…
“I need some white caulk”
THAT IS OBVIOUSLY NOT WHAT HE HEARD because his response was, with graphic hand gestures (ahem)…
“I’ve got some right here for you.”
End of story.
My plea to MY husband AND your significant other:
Please pay attention to us so that you will be spared the embarrassment (and disappointment) when you actually comprehend what we’ve said when we talk to you.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to CAULK the area around the shower.
Have a lovely weekend.
