Why do some men have to make a big deal out of every day things?
I’ve experienced this with both of my husbands. Like, they take out the trash and make sure you know that they did it and how much work it was.
Rick started Saturday morning breakfast (the bacon) two Saturdays in a row, and at one point said, “I started breakfast like I always do.” He doesn’t “always” start the breakfast! It’s about 50/50.
He vacuums about once every two months (I vac 2 or 3 times a week) then acts like he’s the only one who ever vacuums.
When they get sick they act like they’re dying.
I’m pretty sure this behavior isn’t exclusive to my men, as I’ve seen posts on fb that say things like, “A man is someone who takes out the trash and then acts like he cleaned the whole house.”
Is it some ancient instinct to prove that they’re the biggest and bestest of all the world’s male primates?
