Why do women get so uptight about exact dates?

    A buddy was just talking to me about an issue he is having in settling his dads estate. Similar to a problem I had with my mom. He was relating the background to the problem and said “a couple of years ago”.

    His wife came unglued. She said it was not two years ago! It was three years and seven months! Don’t you remember it was right after..........

    I’ve seen this before. My wife’s grandmother was awful about it. You almost needed to consult an almanac before speaking to her.

    Ladies, why is it so important?

    It's not just exact dates.

    I have no idea.

    I got married so I wouldn't have to ever remember an exact detail again. If I should happen to remember one I'll be hastily corrected on it.

    Our minds are much more precise than men's. It's because we are more highly evolved.

    It is the way a woman's brain works. Haven't you seen the flow chart?

    How about the ability to MAKE A GD DECISION?

    Okay...well, no...maybe...what do you want?...I dunno...okay again...no, wait...you sure?...yes...no...

    Or putting the lid/top back on the jar/bottle and put it back when you're done with it?

    Not.

    OP, you're girls are just ''frustrated''. Mine don't mind me moving my birthday to the weekend or whatever.

    Hit the gym, take the blu pill if you have to.

    If it didn't happen in the past 12-16 hours, I couldn't tell you when. I purge that information during nightly scheduled maintenance.

    My wife, on the other hand, knows dates, times, who was there, what everyone was wearing.

    But yet, if I ask her to do xyz today, I get home and it's, oh, I forgot.

    That's because you used up all your memory space with useless details!

    Yes...and no matter what we choose...it will be WRONG. Then we have to put up with an attitude and hear about it all day long.

    Exact dates?
    I don't even know or care how old I am! Don't expect me to remember exact dates!

    I do remember my wife's birthday and our anniversary.
    I may not care about my age, but I'm not stupid enough to forget those dates!

    Because they constantly care about things that don't need cared about.

    Yet asking many of them to be on time for something is an exercise in futility...
