Men’s Rules




Received this from an old friend in Arizona today and, for the sake of, and in defense of all the guys out there, felt the need to pass it along.  This is not a commentary on male chauvinism but a response to “the rules” as we have always known them.  Someone had to do it !  Les is a retired English professor and this is, no doubt, a fine example of his pithy wit.  Witty, but it, nonetheless, has its merits.  I know that some of the ladies out there will be miffed, some will get a really good chuckle from it, and the guys will enjoy it for their own reasons…..


We always hearthe rulesFrom the female side…., Now here are the rules from the male side.

Please note.. these are all numbered “1” ON PURPOSE!


1. Men are NOT mind readers.

Ask for what you want.
Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Sunday sports, It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to most questions.

1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us.

1. You can either ask us to do something, or tell us how you want it done. Not both.
If you already know best how to do it , just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we. (If we do, we’ll ask…, sometimes)

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings

Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit and we have no idea what mauve is.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say “nothing,” We will act like nothing’s wrong.
We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle…

1. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, Expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

1. Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as Football, Hockey. Fishing, or Hunting, or cars.


1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; But did you know men really don’t mind that sometimes?  It’s like camping.





Good Night Everybody !!!
