Men Rant

Man RaysI am appalled by the average man these days.

I’ve been blissfully single for like 19 years now. I was living on my own and loving it.

Then my financial situation got worse and I moved in with a friend. I’ve talked about him before. He is the one whose wife died of a major stroke at the age of 47. It was him and his 2 adult sons living in the house.

The house was in horrible shape. Totally disgusting.

While there is still a lot of work to be done as far as painting and replacing things, the house is clean.

And while nobody lifts a finger to clean anything, at least they are not leaving stuff laying all over and the dishes make it to the sink. Believe me, that is a big improvement. They are still total pigs in the bathroom. Its better than it was, but how they think that this is OK is beyond me. I will refrain from going into graphic details…

So what set me off today?

I was listening to a couple of girls talking about their husbands. Things they get mad about, things they say to their wives, the way they don’t make enough money to support the family so wife has to work, but they feel entitled to lay down and do nothing because they worked so hard.

When i get home, he asks how are you? I said I’m a little sore, had a tough day today. He goes and lays down.

Now mind you, this is not a husband, or even a boyfriend. We live in separate rooms and I pay to live here…

His temporary dentures fell apart a couple of days ago. So now I have to cook something that he can eat without chewing. I can either eat the same thing, or make 2 dinners. Which actually a choice I have to make often since he doesn’t like much.

He just lays on his throne and waits for dinner to magically appear.

He gets up early, so he pretty much goes to back to bed after dinner. I get left with all the clean up. The only time we really talk is over dinner.

He complains about not being able to find a girlfriend. I asked him once, what’s in it for her? Help pay the bills, shop, cook, constant clean up after a bunch of pigs – and you wonder why you don’t have any takers?

Its not that I can’t manage it. I can and I do. I have my systems for getting everything done. Its the expectation that rubs me wrong.

It used to be that men took care of their family, the bigger jobs around the house, and the cars. Now they don’t want to do any of that. They feel entitled to sit around and do as little as possible.

I really feel sorry for the younger girls. There are so many that can’t find a man worth anything. Any hopes of having a family are fading away for these girls.

It leaves us asking, where have all the real men gone?

What do you think?

Thankfully women are strong and capable and can do just fine without men.

For a Great Father’s Day Gift, or just to save some money

The DJ was talking about this on the radio this morning, and its so cool I had to tell you about it.

He said that he watched the new Jurasic Park on his TV yesterday, for free and legal.

He used a Digi Stream.


I know a couple of you that could use this! Pretty cool if you ask me.

If you are an Amazon Prime member, you could get free 2 day shipping and have it in time for Father’s day. They give you that option whenever you check out. But we’re skating on thin ice. I’m thinking I would go with one day shipping to be sure to get it in time.

The reviews are mixed on this. This review is probably helpful –

“This is an android box that has everything you could possibly need or want without the monthly $150 bill that you get for cable. All you need is fast internet. Don’t use wireless. It will be slow and freeze. Connect straight to the box with a ethernet cable. Make sure you have fast internet. Also a lot of these boxes don’t come programmed. That is why you need to watch the video on YouTube on how to program your android digistream box. It will walk you thru everything.”

The DJ that was raving about it is not the brightest crayon in the box, so I’m thinking it can’t be that hard. And he did specify to get this one, not the $160 one.

I don’t own one. This morning was the first time I had ever heard of it. I thought it was cool and wanted to tell you about it.  I am an Amazon affiliate, so if you buy from this link I will get a small commission.
