I find it quite strange when people around me spend a lot of their time moaning about the men in their lives. This has been happening a lot lately, with people who I would call acquaintances rather than any of my real close friends.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that much of the time it’s just girls having a bit of a laugh at the expense of the boys, comparing who’s man is the most annoying/does less around the house, a sisterhood, you know, ha ha aren’t we all in this together.
I just find that some moan constantly. The boys don’t look after the kids enough, they never do the shopping, they are crap with money, and even if they offer to take the girls out…well it seems this is a hidden agenda.
If the tables were turned? If it were the boys sitting around comparing notes? Well you can imagine how that might go down.
I find myself sitting on the outskirts, chuckling in the right places, all the while feeling quite sad for these girls that they never found their soul mate. Or if they did, they seem to have forgotten.
One girl even said to me why was I being so quiet. My reply?
I was just thinking, it seems like I married the right man.
It’s Mr D’s Birthday tomorrow.
