MEN…If you are not going to keep it up, then don’t do it, in the beginning. What am I talking about? Many things actually.Let me step back for a minute. I got into this “talk” with my husband this past week. What inspired the conversation was the phone call he gave me earlier this week and he said to me…”do you want me to put gas in the cat before I come home, the car needs it?” OK so let me set the stage. It is 29 degrees outside and on the day he called we had also had 4 inches of snow. “DUH!” Yes put gas in the damn car, your in it now fill it! I don’t know how many times, since we have been married he has brought the stupid car home without gas in it, and I mean GAS LIGHT ON! OK so here is my plea to all married AND single men out there…
If you are not going to continue to warm up our cars, open doors, bring the car home with gas, bring us a flower or chocolates every now and then, then please DO NOT do it when you are dating a woman. That way we will it least know what to expect when we marry you.Seriously. I got used to a tank of gas, the car getting warm, my car door being opened, and a flower, even a single flower, just every now and then and now after almost 10-years…close to nothing! Now he asks me if he wants me to put gas in…really?
OK so let me paint another picture. I HATE the cold, like most women. My husband is packing on a good 50 extra pounds of weight and complains all the time that he is hot. So who do you think would bitch less about putting gas in the car at 29 degrees? Plus he is driving the damn gas out, not me. I can guarantee that his work car, that is sitting in front of the house, has a nice full tank of gas. It’s the family car that get’s driven on the weekends that he runs out…go figure.So women…do you agree or disagree with me? Would you rather have it in the beginning and then lose it or would you rather not have it at all and not expect it?
My vote is, don’t get me used to it and then take it away once you have us either in bed or the ring onthe finger.
Happy first day of the year!
