11 Stupid Things Men Say To Women

Men can be stupid (we don't say stupid, Mommy) silly. Really "silly" sometimes. 

You know when they say something and you make this face…

And then you say…
"Are you serious right now?!"
And then they back track and say...
"No…that's not what I meant. I love you. You're pretty. Give me a hug. Can I buy you something?"

11. I like my mom's cooking better.
Technically James has never said this to me. But…he does like certain dishes his mom makes better than I do. Still stings a bit

10. I can only see your mustache in the sunlight.
Please never comment on my facial hair. Ever.

9. Are you sure that guy was whistling at you?
One of my friends had just had a baby and got whistled at in the parking lot. When she told her husband he respond that way. Ugh!

8. You think that mirror makes your hips look wider? Funny, it doesn't do that to me. 
James best friend said this to his new wife. Fool.

7. Your head is shaped like a hot dog.
This is real folks. I have a friend who's husband actually said this to her .

6. You're not going out looking like that, are you?
Never comment on my outfit. You think a polo shirt and sweat pants is appropriate attire. 

5. You're acting just like your mother.
Never. Say. This.

4. You don't get an opinion, you haven't had a real job.
This one always hurts. 

3. I like your fat stomach (or any other part of your body). 
I was complaining about my fat stomach to James, and he tried to reassure me with this comment.

2. Do you know why men wouldn't find you attractive in any other country? You just don't have wide enough hips to be attractive.
Yes. James said this to me one night, and tried to fix it by telling me that not all men see beauty the same way. Oh James. Sweet, sweet James.

1. What have you been doing all day? The house is a mess and the kids are naked!
There is no better way to get the blood boiling than by asking a stay at home mom this question. 

But just remember ladies. Men are silly. Women are silly .We are all just a bunch of hot messes that chose to spend the rest of our lives together. So when they say stinky, hurtful things…remember that they DO love you. So take it with a grain of salt, one day you'll be able to look back and laugh about it. 
And you can always use it down the road. I call it "ammo" for when I really want that chalkboard from Hobby Lobby : )

A couple weeks ago my husband told me I looked fa as a joke and I think he's still quite proud of himself for that. Bad boy. I glared at him, don't worry. Men!

Paige said...

No kidding! I asked Curtis if my hips were getting bigger or smaller. He said bigger but your stomach is flat. Of Cousteau I went to the bathroom to soak up tears and to question why I even asked. Haha!
