Why can't men . . .

. . . wash, wipe, and put away the dishes? If they can manage the first, why are they incapable of doing the rest, and vice versa? Why does it have to be either/or? Washing, wiping and putting away is ONE job, guys.

Why can't men wipe down the cooker. Or the work surface?

Why can't men put their own clothes in the laundry basket?

Why can't men go shopping without coming home with cheesecakes but no milk or toilet rolls? You know, the things they went out for.

Why can't men cook a simple meal without using every basin, pot, pan and utensil you possess? All of which need to be washed up later - see above. And why do they insist on preparing enough to feed an army, when there is only two of you?

Why do men mow the lawn but never clean the mower?

No doubt  you can come up with examples of your own - and I'd love to hear them.

I suppose, though, the biggest question of all is: why do we love them so?

    Why indeed do we put up with them and all that they do (or do not do)? You have made me smile this morning as I take a break from walking around the house picking up things that I did not drop, leave or smear into the carpet...
