Sometimes there are squabbles so contentious that both and women will defend to the death that they’re right and their partner is wrong. #MenAndWomenCantAgreeOn is currently trending on Twitter, and it’s bringing these hilarious lifestyle disagreements into question.
From which way to hang a roll of toilet paper to what the thermostat should be set to, it’s a battle of the sexes, and men and women are debating to figure out who is the fairest of them all.
Let It Roll
Everyone’s sanctuary is the porcelain palace (at least it’s mine), and nothing gets people riled up quite like the age-old debate of “under or over.”
The answer is clearly “over,” and anything challenging that is blasphemy.
So if your significant other is upset and you ask them how they’re doing, if they respond with “I’m fine,” tread lightly unless you want World War III.
No conversation snowballs out of control like this one does, and it seems like no one has the perfect reply.
Anyone who lives with a significant other knows that what the thermostat should be set to is a very hotly contested issue. While one person is always comfortable, the other is either reaching for blankets because they’re freezing, or pouring icy water on themselves because it’s too hot.
Anyone sneaking in to change the temperature needs to do it with stealth and precision, sort of like they’re disarming a bomb.
The Toilet Seat
Adding insult to injury is when guys use the toilet, not only is their aim off, but they leave the seat up. Sometimes we don’t even notice and when we go to sit down we nearly fall into the toilet bowl.
You put the toilet seat up in the first place, so you can put it back down. Otherwise, go pee in the yard.
Let’s Go To The Mall
There are different levels of pain, such as stubbing your toe, being kicked in the nads, and childbirth.
And then there is the level of pain associated with when a woman says she wants to go shopping. And you guessed it, the guy is reluctantly along for the ride. Nothing makes my significant other want to cry harder than when I ask him to go to Bed Bath & Beyond with me.
How Do You Take Your Coffee?
This isn’t just a men versus women issue, but literally one for everyone on the planet. What’s the best way to take a cup of coffee?
Black? With cream and sugar? A latte? A shot of espresso? Or a mocha, perhaps? The only wrong answer here is if you say “I don’t drink coffee.” My delicious bean juice and I don’t need your negativity.
The Limit Does Not Exist
Is the closet full of shoes and cute rompers, and as a guy, there is barely any room for your clothes? Well, I guarantee if you ask your significant other about it, they’ll say “go find another closet.”
When it comes to the number of cute dresses we can and will buy, the limit does not exist.
“I’ll Be Ready In Five Minutes”
Time is usually pretty straightforward. There are 60 seconds in a minute, 24 hours in one day, and 365 days in a year. The key term here is “usually.”
But when it comes to a guy asking his significant other when she’ll be ready, the answer given is absolutely meaningless. Has it been 10 minutes or 10 hours since she said she’d be ready? We have no idea.
Are We There Yet?
When drivers get lost, men and women just can’t agree on whether to follow the map or ask for help.
Whether it’s just stubbornness or pre-programmed into their DNA, men don’t like to ask for directions. So no, we are not there yet, and we won’t be for a long time.
Going Out To Dinner
“What do you want for dinner?” “I don’t know, you decide.” If this conversation is triggering horrid flashbacks for you right now, then you, my friend, are in a relationship.
I truly think it’s the one question that causes everyone’s brain to shut down and cease to function.
Not only is deciding what to do for dinner always a battle but sometimes choosing what meal to order at a restaurant is too.
Every time I used to order my steak “medium” I think my significant other died a little on the inside. Once I started ordering it “medium rare,” he loved me again.
What is the correct way to use a fridge? Well, according to men, the only right answer is “full of beer.”
Sorry, ladies, I think we have to give it to the guys this time. A fridge full of beer (or wine) is always the right answer.
My Side Versus Your Side
When it comes to the bed, you’d think it’d be divided equally down the middle so the woman stays on her half and the man stays on his half and everyone gets a peaceful night of sleep.
Anyone in a long-term relationship, however, can tell you that is crap.
When To Be Sexy
Between busy work schedules or taking care of the kids, it can be hard to find time to be intimate, especially if you’re tired.
Adding more fuel to the flames is the debate over what’s sexy, and what’s not. Six-pack abs and a sense of humor? Definitely attractive. Nude-colored bras or asking “did you get my junk mail?” That’s debatable.
(Please Don’t) Do It Yourself
Sometimes guys think they’re Chip Gaines, and bless their hearts for attempting DIY projects around the house—we love that confidence!
Some guys are actually pretty handy and can repaint a room or fix a broken pipe. But for every DIY boyfriend, there is another man who, well...let’s just say he shouldn't quit his day job.
The Dreaded Question
Much like when a woman says “I’m fine,” the question of “Do I look fat in this?” also requires careful consideration.
Obviously, we want you to both tell us the truth and say we look beautiful! Is that so hard to follow?
Every woman’s bathroom counter looks like a drugstore shelf. From makeup to haircare and skincare products, our beauty shopping lists are always long.
But for guys, it’s a little simpler. Two-in-one shampoo and conditioner or a body wash that was made with lavender grown in the fields of the Mediterranean and oils from olives plucked right off of Mount Olympus itself? If you’re a guy, the choice is easy.
The Answer Is Definitely Women
So after you’ve read all the tweets and have gotten both sides, who reigns supreme in the battle of the sexes?
Women, obviously. But we knew that to begin with. Flips hair.
Bill Gets It
There’s a saying that goes “happy wife, happy life,” and it seems like our buddy Bill here has mastered the art of appeasing his wife (and staying alive).
