Can You Handle It? Why are Men Less Stressed than Women

Are men really less stressed than women?  Well, what else would you expect from such simple creatures? 

Your last name stays put.

The garage is all yours.

Wedding plans take care of themselves.

Chocolate is just another snack.

You can be President.

You can never be pregnant.

You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.

You can wear NO shirt to a water park.

Car mechanics tell you the truth.

You don't bleed for 5 days evey 28 days. 

The world is your urinal.

You never have to drive to another petrol station toilet because this one is just too fucking disgusting.

You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.

Same work, more pay.

Wrinkles add character.

Wedding dress R8000 vs Tux rental-R200.

People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. 

New shoes don't cut, blister or mangle your feet.

One mood all the time.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.

You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars.

You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is R8.95 for a three-pack.

You almost never have strap problems in public.

You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.

Everything on your face stays its original colour.

The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.

You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life.

One wallet and one pair of shoes - one color for all seasons.

You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.

You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.

You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24th in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are less stressed...

Brilliant post and oh so true! If him up there asks me to return down here, I am telling him no way if I have to be a female again!

First day of college, I walked into the bath area and my male roommate was shaving his legs? Sensing my obvious question - he informed me he was a competitive bicyclist and if leg hair gets in scabs from falling it is VERY painful. Good observational humor - great post! W.C.C.
