No wonder poor MERTON never has a girlfriend, with an attitude like that.

"Why do women take so long to get ready?"

It's one of those. like it or leave it thing. It's a part of the feminity.

Other similar things includes...

1) Keeps everything and never let go.
2) Gives signs but don't tell men what's the problem they have. Thinks men should know.
3) Go to shopping to spend time(main part) for hours, but not having something in mind before go to shopping and get it and get out like men do.
etc.

I can think of about a hundred of these.

With these dating skills, we can all take comfort in the fact that there will be no lil Mertons.

Geez boys...most of the guys at our bike store take longer in the dressing room to change than I do. I was just wondering why guys take so long to throw on a pair of shorts and a jersey!

I hate that. I am the WORST at picking up on the hints, and I always get in trouble.

It's not easy trying to coordinate a pair of shorts and a jersey for color, especially if you have to think what color glove to wear with it. And then there's the helmet, you have to worry about matching the color of your helmet to your outfit. And then there are your sunglasses, you want those to coordinate too. And your socks, those should match the bike. And then shoes, don't even get me started on the shoes. On top of that, you have to make sure everything matches your frame...

She didn't even put on any make-up, this was just a shower and hair drying.
Brunch always works, too.

I have a great wife. She cooks for me and makes sure I am fed well, does the grocery shopping, does the laundry, buys clothes for me (I hate malls).

I clean the kitchen, clean bathrooms, wash floors, vacuum, shovel driveways, open jars, etc.

However, as with any relationship we have our...moments. Like insisting that she has these fuzzy toliet seat covers that make the lid and seat fall down when trying to P.

So I got fed up with the damn lid slamming down yet again in the middle of a P, so I took the thing off, went outside, covered it in lighter fluid and set it alight.

That was a year ago, no seat cover since. Now I am workin' on all the damned pictures she has lying around. When I try to clean/vaccum/dust and I brush one picture it causes a chain reaction and they ALL fall down like dominos.

#%*&!@$ pictures!!

Serenity now....serenity now.....calm, blue ocean.....

On rides, every time the temp change five degrees means we have to stop and add or remove a layer of clothing. This means gloves come off, then the glove liners, then the offending outer garment, which gets folded and placed in the panniers which must be opened and closed, then on go the liners - oops, forgot to blow my nose, and just HOW does that lipstick look? - and "oh. I need some 'weak food" (hypoglycemia) and "can you help me open the cellophane wrapper" and then we need a drink after the weak food, on go the glove liners, the gloves, and we are rapidly on our way.

But, I love her dearly anyway, and am so happy she rides with me.

And guys, do you pee with gloves on or off? Wife has to go through the gloves off routine each rest stop.

They take forever to get ready in a futile attempt to drive their impatient and selfish partners insane,
hoping that they will flee - never to return.

No matter what we are going to do. No matter what time of day it is. No matter how big a head start I give her. I always have to wait for my wife.

I did the following calculations:

- I wait about 3/4 hr. per day on average
- That's 5.25 hours a week
- That's 22.5 hours per 30 day month
- 270 hours per year
- If I live another 40 years, and stay married to her: 10,800 hours
- there are 8,760 hours in a year.
- That's about a year and a quarter, sitting and waiting for her
- When I factor in hours of sleep, I have about 231,00 hours left in my life (if I live 40 more years)
- That equals 5% of my remaining time on earth will be spent waiting for her.

I mentioned this to her, and she said,"You should get a good book or something to help pass all that time with."
I said,"No, I'll just do some more calculations."
She said,"maybe you could get some kind of job and earn extra money during that time. Just think, a whole year's salary as a bonus for waiting for me! See how wonderful I am?"

Oh, a chick bashing thread.

Have you ever watched a hen tryin' to lay any egg--talk about your time wasting. She sets and sets and sets--and then she sets some more. Finally she will stand up for a while (honest) and then she looks like she is really concentrating and she stretches reeeeely tall and --POP!-- out comes the egg. Then the hen squawks for a while to announce that she is done (and that she is relieved, I guess!).

Da*n chickens!
