What we see…

Gals out there who have a live in boyfriend or husband will hopefully be able to relate to what I’m about to share.  If not, have no fear… this is just insight on what I think most women and men see. 

Exhibit A: 
What I see:  A used, crinkled up napkin with no telling what on it that I deem trash.
What he sees:  A perfectly good napkin that he WAS USING and just left sitting there for 17 hours with intentions to use it again.

Exhibit B. 
What I see:  Yet another USED item, except this one is even MORE obvious to me that it is trash and needs to be thrown away.  ITS EMPTY!
What he sees:  An empty bottle, but I “just finished it” and was going to throw it away…. tomorrow or later.

Exhibit C: 
What I see:  A disgusting collection of dog fur, dust and broken pieces of leaves that have turned into a tumble weed on our floors which needs to be picked up ASAP~
What he sees:  He doesn’t see ANYTHING.

Exhibit D: 
What I see:  Someone, not naming names carried this wipe around and decided to leave it RIGHT HERE.  Its trash.
What he sees:  He doesn’t see ANYTHING.

Exhibit E:
What I see: a collection of clothing items that are already worn that need to be washed including a pair of jeans, socks and a shirt.
What he sees:  A perfectly good outfit to wear tomorrow!

Exhibit F:
What I see:  A bag of AWESOMENESS containing supplies for a craft I have up my sleeve.  I got some feathers, fun paints, sponge brushes and {giddy} other fun things to use for making something!
What he sees:  A bag of Trash.

Men! They really are COMPLETELY different than we are. Maybe there is something to that book "Men Are From Mars..."

Thanks for linking up with us! Loved this post!!!!

Connie Weiss said...

Yep. Men are so weird!

Oh I totally hear you on the clothes. I'd never wash anything if my hubby's criteria was the one I went with on the laundry.

Are all men alike? Were they cloned and only one version put out? My BIL will use napkins over and over until they are gross. If he puts his glass on top of his napkin and you throw it out, be ready for the whining!

I would be seeing red if my hubby threw away MY stuff!! Grrr....

I can relate, yes.

This makes so much sense to me, as I live with three men (boys!). My husband was upfront with me though and admitted that he would NEVER see when the floor needs to be swept.

OH this is so funny! The bag of Awesomeness is seen as a bag of Trash by my hubby too! My husband is bad about leaving tissues or napkins in his pockets, and of course I go to wash and there are all of these little paper pieces EVERYWHERE! Change Exhibit D from a wipe to stuffing the dog has pulled out of her toy, and it's the same way here.

Hope you're having a great day! Thank you for the fun post :)

Opposite here. I was the overlooker and he was the picker upper. Was being the operative word here, but now I cannot overlook. Well maybe a couple hours, then I have to pick it up:)

Emmy said...

Um totally hanging my head in shame right now as my husband could probably write this post- but I would be the male role. Well except for the bag of crafts of course.

It's a pretty even trade between C and I as far as being messy. He's really bad about soda cans and water bottles and I'm bad about tea glasses. lol

Well, rest easy....your world just happens to also be inhabited by a lot of the rest of us gals! I feel your pain!

Laura Carson said...

Haha! This is so totally the way it was when I was married. Except it wasn't just ONE bottle... it was many. Oh so many. :)

Sheena said...

Exhibit D - yup, seen it time and time again.
