Man Rules


Let me start by saying that my mom was a huge football fan.  My sister is as well.  My sister used to play football with all of my friends and me.  My wife knows more about the Chargers than some of our readers.

Why did I feel it necessary to bring all that up?  Because the re-printing of this email is in no way, shape, or form a slight to women that are football fans.  It is also not intended to offend women that are not football fans.

I received this email while working at a bank in Walla Walla, Washington.  Sorry Keith.  I learned a ton from you as a boss and I miss having the occasional beer with you.  You’re not going to read this anyway.

Without further ado, I give you the Man Rules.The Man Rulesュュュュュュュュュュュュュュュュュュュ At last a guy has taken the time to write this all downFinally, the guys’ side of the story.We always hear the rules’ from the female side.Now here are the rules from the male side.

These are our rules! Please note… these are all numbered ‘1 ‘ON PURPOSE! 1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

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

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. 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. Whenever Possible, Please Say Whatever You Have To Say During Commercials…

1. Christopher Columbus Did Not Need Directions And Neither Do We.

1 All Men See In Only 16 Colours, Like Windows Default Settings. Peach, For Example, Is A Fruit, Not A Colour. Pumpkin Is Also A Fruit. 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. 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? It’s Like Camping.

Pass This To As Many Men As You Can – To Give Them A Laugh.

Pass This To As Many Women As You Can – To Give Them A Bigger Laugh.

Although I agree with almost every single one of these, I did not come up with this list.  Furthermore, I own more pairs of shoes than my wife.  Don’t judge me!!

And the last part about “pass this to as many women as you can to get a bigger laugh,” I expect that a very select few women will be offended by the article. It goes without saying that me bringing up the fact that they will be offended will offend them even further.  ?

I truly do not mean to offend anyone with this posting.

Hope you got a laugh out of it and thanks a lot for reading.
