Women & The All About Me Syndrome

Have you ever wondered why, when talking to some women, you notice that they are not really listening and how they somehow deftly change the subject to something concerning them. It could be about what happened at work, a conversation with the hairdresser or even about the latest Oprah Show! I decided that there had to be a logical explanation for this and so I spent many years of research until I finally came to the conclusion that a lot of women suffer from the “It’s All About Me Syndrome” (IAAMS). Let’s have a look at a few examples.

The Bedroom

When a man initiates sex, many women will refuse citing the old I have a headache or the I’m too tired excuse. This goes to show that they are not at all in tune with the man’s feelings or needs and instead are suffering from their own needs or wants. A man on the other hand, faced with the same situation, is more than willing to comply with their request and many actually report that it actually cures the headache.

At Work

For years women have been complaining about the glass ceiling and how they are discriminated against. Never mind that in many situations they just are not suited for certain jobs, especially in regards to jobs requiring manual labor. Still, these types of complaints are generally from women in the corporate business area. They will bitch about how there are less positions in this area being filled out by women and that it is obviously because women are being discriminated by their employers.

Has anyone ever thought that perhaps women aren’t interested in this line of work or if they are perhaps they don’t have the right qualifications. Instead rather than think about how the company will suffer from their non-experience in the field they selfishly fall into the what about me’ stance showing once again how they suffer from IAAMS

Having Babies

The modern women of today who want that either the government or employers should pay for their maternity leave also suffer from IAAMS. It’s obvious in that their main concern is what they will get out of it. Too bad if the employer has to struggle to come up with the money to pay for them while they are off work or that the government has to raise taxes to come up with the necessary cash to pay for every-one’s maternity leave. Too bad if those who have decided not to have children have to pay for those that do as long as they get what they want.

Men on the other hand just knuckle down and work their butts off to make sure that their family gets what they need.

The Toilet Seat Saga

Now if this isn’t a typical all about me situation’! Where men take the time to look to see whether the seat is up or down and adjust accordingly, women have decided that the natural position is down and that is the only way they will accept it. Woe the man who leaves the seat up.

Hopefully by now you have realized that I am only pulling your leg and that really this post was a load of bulldust.

Once again let me stress that these are not my personal views and the whole thing was meant to be funny. I see by some comments that some viewed it as ‘bad taste’ or ‘prejudice’, and all I can say is that either they can’t take a joke or perhaps some women actually do suffer from IAAMS

  1. Sorry Mitch, are we talking about the lid or the toilet seat, because even with the toilet seat down you still have a big enough hole to drop stuff into?

    As for the leash, you won’t find one on this Aussie. She lets me online because she has finally seen the earning potential of a half decent blog.


    1. Twitter:
      Sire, you can’t close the lid if you don’t put the toilet seat down, so I’m talking about both. And yeah, I’m sure she’s noticed the earning potential; she probably works the books. LOL

      Mitch´s Last blog post..First Week Of Contest Info

      1. Hell, the lid is almost always up at our place. I guess it’s a precaution just in case you have to sit down in a hurry to let a load go. Could be embarrassing if the lid was down. :flush_tb:


        1. Twitter:
          That’s because you’re surrounded by women in your house. Here, just me and my wife, and I have my own bathroom. lol

          Mitch´s Last blog post..The Psychology Of Gambling

          1. Heck, I reckon my son and I are pretty well outnumbered by the wife and daughter and even though I have two toilets in my house, for some reason or other everyone uses mine.

  2. Great write up man!! LOVE IT!!! I would agree with the whole article lol!!!

    Taris Janitens´s Last blog post..How to Sell on Ebay: Pricing and Item

    1. I’m glad you liked it Taris, it made all the blood, sweat, tears and the beatings around the head from the wife as I wrote it completely worth while. :jittery_tb:

  3. I’m completely opposite on most of these things. I’m pretty sure that is why I have few female friends. :)

    1. Hey Kristi, I always said you were pretty special. The fact that you have few female friends shows their lack of judgment.


  4. Twitter:
    Dicey and funny at the same time; I’m betting in real life your wife keeps you on a short leash, which is why she lets you get online. :smirk2_ee:

    By the way, in my household, I’m the one who wants the toilet seat fully down. That’s because, after living on my own for years before getting married, I always worried about stuff falling into the toilet and my having to get it out. Do it just once, and you’ll understand.

    1. LOL Mitch now that sounds funny from you. Sire’s wife must be a busy woman..

      Ben´s Last blog post..Are You Afraid Of Recession?


      1. Twitter:
        Hi Ben. No, I’m just a particular guy; only child, and I did live on my own 10 years before meeting my wife, so I got used to having things my own way.

  5. The classic Men are from Mars/Women from Venus scenario. Seriously though, women need you to show empathy…take note of the difference between empathizing and sympathizing.

    Sympathizing is “wussy-like” while the former shows you “understand”. Don’t always be so quick to solve all her problems, just demonstrate you understand and will be there for her;)

    Caleb´s Last blog post..Tips From The Blogoshere

    1. Caleb, I’m not sure there is a man on this planet who can say that he understands a woman, not a one. I’ve been married for some 23 years and I still don’t understand how the wife thinks. I reckon that is why I tease her so much, to make up for all those times that she leaves me scratching my head, wondering what the hell caused her to go off the handle.

      Please take note that the post was pure satire and something I just put together to have a bit of fun.

  6. Sorry Caleb but most women aren’t that dumb and If I was going to try to go that route and was caught out, then all hell would break loose.

  7. Thanks Peter, that means a lot, I’m glad you liked it.

  8. What I’m saying about understanding is even if you don’t understand, still sort of “fake it til you make it”… she’ll give lots of loving in return :wink_ee:

  9. It’s true. This attitude of a woman only proved of their moody side. You can’t really predict them and need to understand them all the time. That’s the nature of every woman, we can’t do anything about it.

    1. Love the post, just been reading a book called ‘Toilet Seat Syndrome’ by James Judd about the same thing. It’s got chapters like: The self inflicted glass ceiling, Toilet Seat Syndrome – Symptons & Treatments, etc.

  10. Okay now I’m just going to have to go to Australia one day and kick your butt! Just kidding- well not really – LOL.
    I could argue several of your insensitive points in your post but I’m sure you’ve heard all of my arguments already from your wife and other females in your life so I’ll just say – I really hope you’re joking on these.
    your friend,
    Eren

    1. Hey Eren, long time no see. It’s so nice to see your smiling face again. Of course the whole post was tongue in cheek, I said as much in the last paragraph, but I still hope you come for a visit one day, but kicking and all.

      1. I figured you were joking Sire – Women go through so much for their families I wouldn’t believe that you would devalue us like that since you’re a nice guy. I haven’t been around much but I plan on getting back in action soon. I really missed coming here and smiling when I read your humorous posts.
        Blessings,
        Eren

  11. Now this is something I fully and totally agree with. Even my friends say the same thing. Women are always in the right, they can never be wrong. Almost every women suffers from this syndrome.

  12. Oops guilty. But not at all times Sire. I think men are more self centered than women. Women have feelings especially for others though not in general. Anyway, this is a fun post :)

    1. I would expect that coming from a woman :wink_ee:
