  • It's impossible to change. My mom has been saying the same thing for the 20 some years my dad has been teaching shop class, and it just doesn't change. Men are like that.

  • Hide them when he says he's going to work on his cars.

  • Make him wash them himself afterwards, and don't buy him new clothes, he will see the point.

  • Skip the nagging and go straight for the Hefty bags and the shallow grave.

  • He wants to look his best at all times when he is away from home. That says a lot.

  • there's nothing you can do really.... most of the time people will keep doing it if someone insists they stop so use some reverse psycology on him. Like when he puts it on, say something like ya... you should wear that one, I never liked it anyway lmao j/k I wouldn't say that but I'd stop nagging and tell him to put aside X amount of dollars a month to replace the ones he ruins out of his personal spending money?

  • He's a man. They don't always do logical things. Like when they don't replace the empty toilet paper roll, or they walk past the wastepaper basket that is filled to overflowing.

    Women rule the world. Men are just here for the company. I heard this statement on a Depends commercial, and I swear it's SO true!!
