The 26 Things Men Wish Their Wives Knew!


  1. Learn to work the toilet seat. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up and you need it down. You don’t hear us gripping about you leaving it down.
  2. If you won’t dress like the Victoria’s Secret girls, don’t expect us to act like soap opera guys.
  3. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.
  4. Sometimes, we’re not thinking about you. Live with it. Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as naval lint, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.
  5. College football is like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
  6. Shopping is not a sport, and no, we’re never going to think of it that way.
  7. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really. You have enough clothes. You have too many shoes.
  8. Crying is blackmail.
  9. Ask for what you want. Let’s be clear on this one: Subtle hints don’t work. Strong hints don’t work. Really obvious hints don’t work. Just say it!
  10. We don’t know what day it is. We never will. Mark anniversaries on the calendar.
  11. Peeing standing up is more difficult. We’re bound to miss something.
  12. Most guys own three pairs of shoes. What makes you think we’d be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
  13. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
  14. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do.
  15. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
  16. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.
  17. Foreign films are best left to foreigners.
  18. Check your oil.
  19. It is neither your best interest nor ours to take the quiz together.
  20. No, it doesn’t matter which quiz.
  21. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after 7 days.
  22. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.
  23. You can either tell us to do something OR tell us how to do something but not both.
  24. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
  25. ALL men see in only 16 colors. Peach is a fruit, not a color.
  26. If we ask what’s wrong and you say “nothing,” we will act like nothing’s wrong. We know you’re lying, but it’s just not worth the hassle.
