The Ultimate Explanation To Male Complexity

Picture me, if you will,  yelling from the bathroom:

“Brian, why do you leave wet towels on the floor when there is a rack right in front of you and why do you leave dirty clothes on the floor when there is a hamper right next to them?!”


A cute, boy-head peaks itself around the corner of the bathroom, looks in on me and displays a coy grin:

“Mom … I’m a guy.  We’re complex.”

Until next time –

    LOL hello discovering dad. Yeah, Brian thinks he’s all that. He is a teenager … you did hear that they know everything?

    And if it was a girl talking to her father, she would be using the same explanation. LOL

    Oh! That’s the reason I’m such a slob. I’ll remember this the next time my wife ask why I don’t put my clothes away. My thanks to your son.

    Girls are complex, boys are lazy.

    You know, this reminds me of something I saw in college. My husband had been in a fraternity and I was over at one of their parties. The women from the sorority houses were horrible guests.

    There was one guest bathroom for all the women to use, and next to the sink was a huge mound of paper towels. I was disgusted and in a dramatic motion swept them in my hands and dumped them in the trash can that was right next to the sink.

    I still to this day cannot come up with a good rationale for trashing someone else’s house where you are an invited guest.



    (BTW, I joined a different sorority the next year and my sisters were not like that at all. Just so you don’t think this is an anti-sorority rant. I just hate people showing deliberate disrespect.)

    Sometimes we just try to play basketball with the laundry. If we miss, we look for someone else on the team to get the rebound. Basketball is complex too. )
