The quintessential difference between men and women!

Postby judgegeoff » 10 Nov 2017 12:01

Last week our immediate family all assembled at a hotel in Colchester for two nights as our youngest daughter was getting married. A few days later my eldest daughter posted a photograph on 'Facebook' entitled "The quintessential difference between men and women summed up in one sentence" that she had taken at the hotel :-

I thought I would share it with my forum friends. We were there just for 2 nights! :lol:

Does anybody else have anything similar that illustrates the difference between the sexes?

Yep, you lot only wear trousers, where as the ladies can wear trousers or skirts. But yes even though I usually only wear trousers I would still take more than two.

The quintessential difference between men and women!

I can imagine that a subject such as this could become quite contentious! We are not very PC in this respect - my wife cooks, does the washing and ironing; I vacuum, do DIY and gardening, and car-related stuff. And neither of us would have it any other way. :D

I don't have anything to illustrate the point, but on a related matter... This morning I looked on Tesco's website for a Batman outfit for my grandson Luca. I was surprised to find that although I could filter the search results by age, it wasn't possible to filter them by gender. So the results for 'costumes' included mermaids, princesses, Wonder Woman, etc. as well as Superman, Batman, etc. How very PC of Tesco - except of course that every 'girl's' costume was being modelled by a girl, and every 'boy's' costume was being modelled by a boy. :think: :lol:

Anyway, we found just the thing. :D

If you go to a McDonalds with a woman and ask her what she would like often you find she will say "I'll just have a burger, ohh and a drink". You say "You don't want a meal?" "No" comes the stern reply. So you purchase a Quarter pounder, a diet coke and a Quarter pounder meal with a coke for yourself. As soon as you sit down she is trying to take your blinking chips. What is that about?

Ah but!... what about a man who doesn't want a bag of crisps and then wants some of mine. Only a few he says. Now with the deceasing amount in a bag of crisps a 'few' could be near enough the whole packet. :o

So Keith, I suggest this is not really a gender issue at all. :lol:

In the days when clothes were fastened with buttons,buttons left for ladies,or on the right for mens',i could tell which was which, but when they were done up with zips it became much harder. Hair length used to help until boys grew their hair longer,then it was harder in some cases to distinguish between them.

Years later I began to think there was a bigger difference between brains. most men had a brain divided into areas, work/ sport/sport/ politics for example; women had the whole lot all in the one space. To me it explained why most women did several things at the same time,whereas whichever section the man was using no other section was used, or intruded into the active section. This explained why many specialised jobs were often done by men because their concentration was centred 100% on the immediate problem.
Many women were able to do specialised jobs too, and many men were able to cope with more than one thing at a time; so perhaps it's simply a question of which type of brain you have, with either male or female tendencies.
