It has been brought to my attention that I am rather tyrannical when expressing my opinion in my articles ..so I'm going to "leave space" for people to voice out their own opinions
This post is inspired by an article I read on "domesticity" and the comments people made.
*PHCN strikes .. The husband is in traffic on his way back home from a long day at the office. Ada is right in the middle of making dinner*
How it should be:
Ada: "curse u PHCN" ... * eyes adjusting to the darkness as she fumbles around looking for the flashlight on the shelf*... "Aha! Got it !" * goes to the generator house , checks to see the amount of fuel in it and turns it on*
Ayo comes back to a nice hot meal prepared by his loving wife
How it is (sometimes):
Ada: well this is just too bad ... I told Ayo countless times to either buy an inverter or a stand-by generator mschewwww *groping around in the dark looking for her phone .. Dials Ayo's number* .. Hello , pumpkin pie. How're you
Ayo: *phone rings .. He looks at the caller I.d ..wonder what she wants to complain about now* Hi babe ..I'll be fine as soon as I get home . Wats up
Ada: err , therz no light and I havnt finished makind ur food... And u know I don't know how to operate the generator.. So should I wait for u to get back and turn it on so I can finish cooking ur rice in the rice cooker and frying ur dodo in the deep fryer ? Or will u branch at tantalizers and just buy meat pie or something ?
Plz, be objective (esp the women) do you think it is really acceptable to not be able to do the most basic "guy chores" around the house ? .. Some women don't even know how to change bulbs .. They'll probably try to fit a screw-on bulb in place of those clip ones *smh* .. Sad but true
Some women act all crazy when guys say they ought to be able to do these things.. They're like " what does he mean by that ehn ? If he wants superwoman, he too should be superman and cook and clean and feed and bathe the kids" ... Personally , I don't think this is right ... I'm not saying that if PHCN strikes and u r both home, he shld put his feet up and send u to turn on the generator, that is just the height of stupidity ; but I think women shld know how to do basic "man chores" around the house ... In case of emergencies
The same way women like to come home to a cooked meal sometimes, men also like women that know how to do some basic "guy chores" ...
What say you ?
