Why do I get bent out of shape????
Now before we dive in too far..i just want to say I love Mrs. March..this really has nothing to do with her (per se) but I wanted to put that out there.
Two times in the last week I have gotten slagged off, perhaps only slightly to some, but still it pisses me off..why I am not sure really.
Last week we had a holiday cookie contest. Basically it just an excuse to skip out of work for a bit, eat cookies and if you 'win' you get bragging rights. Last year I won 2 of the three categories.
So I am bringing my cookies up to the room and a woman asks me "Did you REALLY makes those or did your wife?"
Then today I had my stack of holiday cards and a co-worker says "Did you wife do all those?"
What the fuck..seriously. My wife does enough honestly (some days too much..all we did was clean the house yesterday). I digress.
I loathe the stereotype of dumb guys that can't do laundry or cook or whatever. We each pull our weight around the house. To that I loathe the stereotype that women can't change a tire for example....
The cookies, she had nothing to do with. This was a work thing for me and she had other stuff to do. The cards, well she took the picture of the kids and ordered them. Last night I sat and sealed them and did the labels, stamps etc. It is give and take.
Not sure why it angers me so much...i am not THAT helpless really.
