Men...

Post by Nessa » Wed Aug 19, 2015 2:15 pm

is it just me or do some men seem to have selective hearing :shakehead:

When you ask them what they think, it often feels like they hear it like this

"What do you think of :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: , is that ok?"

And later on that day they will be like "Why didn't you tell me?!"
then it's like "I did, you just didn't listen to that part of the conversation" :roll:

At least mine admits it :mrgreen:

So, men, listen to your :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah: and that way you won't :blah: :blah: :blah: :blah:, ok?

Got it?

Good :mrgreen:

I think selective hearing is part of the male DNA. But it's dormant, until his wife starts to talk. Talk about sports, or cars with another guy, and selective hearing is dormant. :lol:

So, I think selective hearing in men, is actually caused by women! :mrgreen:

If a man is alone in the forest, and no woman is around, is he still wrong?

I often remind my wife that I like to operate on a need-to-know basis, as there is a WHOLE lot I don't think I need to know about (especially, the excruciating minutia of it :roll: ) :mrgreen: . But she insists I hear ALL of it. While I might HEAR it, I tend to zone out if she loses my interest by going on and on - and ON - about something I don't see as particularly important. But like all men, I've gotten the "yes, dear, I'm paying rapt attention" facial expression down pat. So I'm usually pretty good as long as she doesn't have a pop quiz later (even MINUTES later). :lol:
