On the radio the other morning they were talking about a nationwide survey. "They" has asked married men to name their number one complaint about their wives. The radio station was letting listeners take guesses.
Not enough sex. No.
Talk during sports. No.
I laughed when they revealed the answer. The Coach has been complaining about the same thing for a while.
When I got to work I emailed him to ask him what HE thought the number one complaint of married men was.
Wives don't cook well?
Wives get fat?
Then I asked him to please not guess any more. His guesses were liable to give me a complex. (He claims he was thinking about what OTHER guys would say...not him.)
The number one complaint of married men in the U.S. (according to this survey) is that wives' sleepwear is unnattractive.
I told The Coach the answer and he acted as if the had just won the lottery.
We have had many discussions about my pajamas which usually consist of long pajama pants which may or may not be food stained and holey, a t-shirt under a hoodie, and knee high socks.
He says, "I have a hot wife. I would like to see some of her." (Isn't he complimentary while he is telling me my jammies are the ugliest things in the whole world?)
So I did a survey of my own. It was limited in scope. I only asked me.
Why don't married women wear cuter pajamas?
1. Sometimes I consider sleeping in the fridge as a warmer alternative to sleeping in our bedroom. I can see my breath. The fear of frost bite will never lead to a tank top.
2. I had a cute pair of silky pjs once upon a time and the head honcho in charge of laundry (The Coach) washed them with a pair of jeans, a hacksaw, and a brick. They are ruined. (Also they didn't look good with knee socks.)
3. I would rather spend money on day time clothes. Especially boots. Maybe we could arrange for pj allotment every paycheck. Just an idea.
Being the nice wife I am I bought a cute pair of shorty pajamas. It had his favorite football team, The Texans, on it and every thing. I put them in a box and wrapped them up to give him for Christmas. He liked the pajamas, but was upset that I packaged it as a gift for him. (He is serious about his Christmas presents.)
I guess the number 2 complaint of married men in the U.S. is.............cruddy gifts!
Question............Do you think this is TRULY men's biggest complaint about their wives? If not..what?
