Ever Known Any One Like This?




It's common modern psychobabble that women like to talk about how they feel about problem while men like to solve problems. 

Mrs. Graybeard (who likes to solve problems, not talk about them) and I ROTFLed at this. (or whatever the past tense of that is...)

  1. The terrible truth! And really, if women were more candid about it, it would be much less funny. But they habitually insist otherwise...as they're lambasting their menfolk for daring to try to fix the problems they're enjoying weeping over.

  3. I married well. My wife would be asking where I hid our hammers and which one has the better puller on it, "cause that damned thing has got to go".

  4. It ain't just psychobabble. I've had this exact conversation with a different nail.

    "I don't want you to fix it - I want you to talk about my feelings."

    *blink blink* "But if we FIX it, you won't have the bad feelings that need talking about..."

  5. My wife seems to think that if I am trying to fix the problem I can't be paying attention to her nagging/whining/drama queening about the problem. She is right, if I fix the problem its not a problem anymore, and I don't have to listen about it, but then I become the problem, because if I "Only cared more I would listen better insted of always trying to fix things".

  8. I'm late to this party, but common doesn't go far enough. I think pervasive is the word you want. ;-)
