Being as it was a new house, no one living there yet, no bandaids, so a bit of paper toweling and some of his finest Scotch 33 tape (only the good stuff , not Jap Wrap) and I’m not bleeding all over his new floor anymore. We finish that job and move to another.
Later that day, I leave to go to a Dentist appointment.
The dental assistant, a nice young lady, asks what is up with my stylish tape on my hand?
I explained how I got the tape, and why.
“My boyfriend would not be able to keep working if that happened to him, he can’t take blood, he’d have to go home” She said. “He’d never just tape it up and keep on working…He’s not very tough”
I (probably wisely) refrained from pointing out that she needed to find a more manly boyfriend, (seeing as how she would soon be probing onside my mouth with sharp objects….) Perhaps one with a set of cojones putting some testosterone in his blood…..
But seriously, WTF? Why do women go with, and stay with, such wimpy men? One would think she’d want someone tough enough to deal with a very minor injury, and manly enough to suck it up and keep working.
Perhaps he’s “sensitive to her needs” or something?
Why would women, seemingly intelligent, want such a wimp? I thought they’d want tough manly men, not pussified ones.
Or is this the new Millennial womanhood? “I am Woman, hear me squeek.” Mates as weak and soft as they are? Raising children to be as weak as they?
