‘Tis the Season
It is that time of year again. I realize it is the thought that counts and it is better to give than to receive but all things being fair there are far fewer commercials showing women buying anything for their men (in fact I cannot remember one this year which of course does not mean there are not any) than men buying their women (typically diamonds). Funny as I type this the one where she bought him a cell phone came on, no doubt so she can stay in touch with him for the honey do list.
This again states like in my blog “It is no Longer the Thought that Counts” referencing a story by MSNBC that had an overwhelming number of complaints in their poll by women about their Christmas gifts I believe that it is men that really hold most of the Christmas Spirit.
In general, women expect the expensive and or gifts of jewelry. From the commercials that I remember that actually encouraging women to obtain gifts for their men they were equivalent to what women would cause a domestic over had they received them? What do I mean? Well, I think that men should buy the women in their life an iron, washing machine, dryer, vacuum cleaner, dust buster, pots and pans or any other tool of the stereotypical tool of their trade.
Do not send me hate mail you know this to be true. Look at the gifts that are recommended for men. A woman walks into a hardware store, and the commercial recommends any number of a myriad of tools, wrenches, drills, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, and any other laborious tool.
Tell me now that things are not seriously askew in this period where women want to be treated equally.
