After reading this guy’s list of things women say that drive men crazy, I got to thinking about all the things men say that drive me crazy. This is, by no means, a man-hating post… more like constructive criticism. After much collaboration with girlfriends, we all agreed that these things are, in fact, really annoying and are probably driving us away.
Now I’m definitely frowning. Thanks for making me do the opposite of smiling. I was totally happy until you had to ruin it with your little “smile” comment.
“So, what kind of music are you into?”
Actually, I got out of Middle School eleven years ago which is right around the same time I stopped liking just one genre of music.
“Is it that time of the month?”
… Just don’t.
“Are you pregnant?”
No, I’m just bloated, thanks for noticing! FYI: Unless a woman is literally popping out a baby at that very moment, assume she is not pregnant.
“Wow, you’re all fancy!”
Now I feel like I dressed inappropriately, so thanks for that. But now that I think about it, compared to your ripped cargo shorts and bacon-necked tee, I guess I am pretty fancy, huh?
And for all my service industry ladies: “You gonna be here all day/What’s your schedule?”
Some men take your bartending/barista/waitressing shift as a prime opportunity to hit on you because they know you’re required to be nice. So when a guy says “will you be here all day/night?” what he is really asking is, So I can totally hit on you for like, four hours, right? No, you can’t. Please leave so I can make fun of you with my co workers.
Ew. I am not seven and “sweetie” is not cutting it anymore.
Lastly, “Dude or Bro”
I am female and this term should never, ever apply to me.
Lovelies, does this list resonate with you? Is there anything men have said to you that drives you crazy (in a bad way?)
