It’s Friday, and that means answer time! For those of you who have commented with questions from previous ManFAQs, thank you. I’m adding yours to the list of questions women have asked about men over the years, and I will answer them all in turn – to continue to demystify the more malodorous gender for those of the gentler. Actual questions, posed by real women, and answered by a REAL man. What could go wrong?
Question: Why won’t men read instructions, ask for directions?</p>
Answer: To actually pull over and ask someone where I’m going is to admit, in front of you, that I’m an idiot. Not to you – you know I’m an idiot – but to another guy. This makes us think (deep in the id) that they’ll be able to put the moves on you with their strong directional foo. Better not to risk it – besides, we still have almost a quarter tank of gas left! Plenty of time; I’m sure it’s just over this hill. Didn’t you say you were going to bring the directions?
Now you know. Please, feel free to comment with any questions you’d like answered!</p>
