Female point system
Hey Guys !!!
Just got inspired by Dhir’s recent blog you will find it here. First it was Smita talking about Maids and then Dhir “how to avoid blasphemy in the absence of maids!!!” No I am not going to rave and rant about maids but the fact that men start walking in the proverbial mode of “treading on egg shells”……. when they are not around. Well its the same in my house but I think that that is the case in all households.
People who live abroad often say that we Indians are very lazy and we need to keep maids….. just because we are snobbish etc etc. But I have it from friends who have travelled abroad that the living conditions there are very different from ours also the amount of gadgets at their place make life rather simple for them. For eg : they don’t have to dust mop the house everyday because the dust factor there is very less. The gadgets that they use like vacuums and dishwasher is rare in India etc etc……
As for me mine is the classic case of an egoistical angel. I spend hours sweet talking her. She is in the fourth step in the pyramid of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs….. only self actualisation being left out!!! I do it because she is also an angel…… she has been with me forever…… she is the best……. though every few months she back stabs me and goes off to somebody else…… I try my best to protect her from getting poached but not very successful…… As I frequently tell Hubs…. “REMEMBER: She is my best friend. She is sacrosanct!!! I can do without you!!! but can’t do without her !!!!”
But this blog post of mine is not about maids or to compare our lives with theirs but to talk about a very common trend in men….. when the going gets tough…… Men keep away…… or completely disappear!!! I received this forward from my friend Poornima today morning and so I just could not nudge of the feeling of deja vu when I read Dhir’s post!!! and before your accuse me of plagiarism please note that I HAVE NOT WRITTEN IT just copied it to my blog:
Happy reading and let me know what you think of it : As for me I totally agree with the post!!!
In the world of romance, one single rule applies to men: Make the woman happy. Do something she likes, and you get points.
Do something she dislikes and points are subtracted.
You don’t get any points for doing something she expects. Sorry, that’s the way the game is played.
