I apologize for being rude to you when my frustration is truly with multitudes of women around the world who seem to believe that their parental and marital experience is the same as everyone else's.

Ie Good for you that you never say one bad thing about your husband, I do. Good for you that you don't mind doing ALL the cooking, cleaning, and child rearing, I do. Etc. There have been a LOT of threads like this lately and I need to just bow out of them gracefully.

I get frustrated on a forum where we should all be entitled to our opinions that there will be at least one person in every thread that comes in trying to belittle everyone else because they clearly have the best opinion. Of course, that's the nature of the internet and people in general. You've already clarified that you didn't mean to say that our priorities were wrong, just that napping is a high priority for you, so I'm sorry for my snark.
Yeah, and saying that is obviously poking fun at another member. Nice. Is it really a joking matter? When did I ever say that having priorities straight is the key to happiness?

Where did I say that everyone's parental and marital experience is the same?

When did I say I did ALL the cooking and cleaning and child rearing?

And, please.....tell me how I am belittling everyone.

Should we change the title to

Why Are Most Women So Ill-Equipped To Get Along?

I'm just kidding though, seeing this many noses out of joint just made me want to say something funny but I had nothing - obviously.

The first paragraph: based on my assumption of what you meant.

The rest: things OTHER people frequently imply or say. Hence, "I APOLOGIZE for being rude to you when my frustration is with others."

Re: Why Are Most Men So Ill-Equiped To Exist?

Aaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnddddddddd.... The thread continues! Ajane I think everyone whose nose is out of joint is just jealous of you because they wish they could nap too. Just like everyone jumped on me because they were jealous of my perfect marriage. It's probably going to invite 10 more pages of flames but not only do I have a perfect marriage, but I also nap some days too

I have not read this whole thread but I asked DH the question and his answer was "Because the women in their lives put up with it"
