Men ... are they just incapable of learning ANYTHING?

I've discovered this is a common problem among men - they do NOT realize that the power button on ANYTHING serves any other purpose than turning something ON. How the hell do they think shit gets turned OFF? Does the electronics fairy go behind him and turn every damn tv and light off in the house? Apparently so!

  • umm...My Dh doesn't have that problem, if any thing he's got the opposite problem. He unplugs EVERYTHING unless we are using it. . You shouldn't lump ALL men in together...its ignorant.

  • Your post does not sound humorous in the slightest so that's why no one has taken it that way. A lot of women with good men find it insulting when burned women generalize that ALL men are stupid, pigs, assholes, ect.....

  • It's why there are no men who have ever passed a driver's test or learned how to do anything like hunt or build houses.

    You should live with my dad --or grandfather-- the power nazis. You'd think that much shouting would more the compensate for a 40 watt bulb being left on for a day...

  • My DH is a good guy, but has some things that he does that bug the H*ll out of me and by joking about it with other women is a good way of not blowing my top. Lighten up and learn to laugh!
