    I don't think it works that way. We have to figure out what answer you (meaning woman kind) want. We think our decisions are just fine.

    I notice this mostly in older people, regardless of gender. The older people get, the longer it takes them to tell inconsequential stories and the more the timeframes become important.

    30 y/o: "Brand new tire blew out on me today."

    70 y/o: "Had a new tire today, mostly new, I got it about three weeks ago...might have been four weeks but maybe three and half, somewhere in there. I got it in the middle of a week. I was just out one day and decided I had the time so I went over to that tire shop they built where the Denny's used to be. Remember that Denny's? We used to go there sometimes if it was late. Anyway, I had a tire blow out today when we were coming back from that store off of SR80......."

    Nobody ever said that dealing with a higher intelligence was easy.

    Wives, if your man tells you he'll do something he'll do it..

    There's no need to keep reminding him every 6 months...

    They remember because of all the drama they attatch to those events. What to wear, who got invited, bad hair day, which shoes, is that ***** Carole going to be there and what if she wears the same dress or earrings as me, I feel bloated, none of my shoes fit, we're going to be late again, blah blah.

    Our more highly evolved brains can store more data. It's as simple as that.

    ....can store more drama.

    Unless they store intelligence in their ankles, it ain't higher.

    Women's lives revolve around fashion, beauty, family, kids, relationships and such. They do not have many other interests, generally speaking. They don't collect machineguns for instance.

    I wish I knew why women were so hung up on dates. I've been married 50 years or so, what does it matter exactly how many? My wife's birthday is in August, isn't that close enough for most things? Hallmark holidays don't count so I don't bother with thinking about Valentines Day, Mother's Day and the like. And I know that we have exactly five children and a bunch of grandchildren. I even remember all of my kid's names! I keep a list of their birthdays somewhere so there's no need to really remember them. Seems sensible to me but my wife has a fit.

    And if there are two equally good decision but one is counter to the woman choice, then 101% of the time, there will be complaints.
    At times like those there are other decisions to make.
    Defend your position, or shut up and go on to the next problem.
