NOT EVEN CLOSE

According to this article, researchers estimate that the average woman spends a total of three years getting ready to go out. This is ridiculous. I personally, have waited longer than that in a single evening.

This is a blatant lie.

That's all I have to say.

men are left hanging around for an average of 17 minutes and 25 seconds each time

Faulty research. We have TIvO for that.

So, you agree with Dave, Daisy, that it's actually far longer?

So, dm, what you're saying then is that it takes MORE than three years getting ready to go out?

you guys b!tch and moan about how long it takes your wife/girlfriend/whatever to get ready. you have seen us first thing in the morning. be damn glad we make the effort before going out in public. i personally have scared the bejeezus out of small children and pets first thing in the a.m., pre-makeup. trust me, the wait is worth it.

Um...Dave, post something else, please. Or I suspect there's gonna be trouble.

Uhoh, Dave is going to be sleeping in the car tonight.

blurk - as if Dave isn't rubbing his hands gleefully this very second.

Have you ever tried to get ready to go out w/ small children hanging about after having spent the day making the house safe for a babysitter. Just b/c you men come home and are already to go b/c you just leave your work clothes on you think you have to wait forever for us to get dressed.

Besides, I am not yet awake enough to do the math to figure out how many evenings out that is, but I have a feeling that it's more than what the average non-dating person gets.

Ummm...I'm done now.

Many women, and men for that matter, have a strict regime they stick to.

It's regimen, for heaven's sake. And this sentence ends in a preposition.

/End grammar rant.

You guys know you like it when we get all dolled up for you.

I stick to a strict regime.

Hey...we've blogged this before.

blurk, hold my purse...Annie and I are going shoe shopping. It may take a while.

Then we get in the car and it takes 40 minutes longer than it should to get to our destination because our man thought he knew how to get where we were going.

*SNORK* @ ubetcha

*snork* at ubetcha!

Someone did the math for us girls at the bottom of the page (since we girls can't DO math. Remember? Because all our lives we have been told that this ____________ is six inches. Sorry- it's an oldie but a goodie)

It works out to every night for 60 years.

ddd, that's just plain dead wrong. That's eight inches.

LOL ubetcha!

Every night for 60 years? I'm going to have to live well into my 90s, then...

*snork* at Meanie

JD-
Thanks. Another rant: it's big nights out, not big night outs.

Night outs? Not nights out?

"Unsurprisingly, the poll revealed that nearly two-thirds of men get fed up of constantly waiting - and one in ten has even ended a relationship because of it."

Sooo, that's what happened to Johnnie...

OK - and they DON'T mention how long women have to wait for their appliances/cars/houses to be fixed because hubby can "do it himself," except, of course when he only makes it worse which is all the time? Crimus.
