Don’t ask a Man!

I found this hilarious article on Real Simple. Enjoy!  Sometimes the problem is they are honest with there answers but it’s not what we want to hear.  Right Ladies?

Men are notoriously bad at picking up on small details. It’s not because we don’t care, it’s because we’re not paying attention to what’s going on. Don’t hold it against us — it’s a miracle we retain information like what your face looks like, let alone that the blue shirt you’re wearing is different than the blue shirt we’ve seen you wear before. Here are 15 more things you shouldn’t get mad at us for not noticing:

1. A new purse. 
It’s like the old thing you put a bunch of stuff in, except a different color. As far as we’re concerned, all purses look the same.

2. Unshaved legs. 
Unless you’re coming at us like Sasquatch, we probably can’t tell you have a little bit of stubble on your legs.

3. New candles.
The part of our brain that lets us process candles in general is just missing. If you take us to a Yankee Candle store in the mall, we just see a black void. Point being, there’s no way we’re going to tell the difference between “Vanilla,” “French Vanilla,” and “Vanilla Cupcake.”

4. No makeup. 
Women never believe this, but sometimes we don’t notice you’re not wearing makeup. We really don’t. And then we get yelled at for lying. This is one of life’s greatest mysteries.

5. New shoes. 
We never look below anyone’s knees.

6. Blush. 
We don’t know what blush is, so how can we even tell when you’ve changed yours?

7. Cellulite. 
Everyone is more critical of their own body. Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever seen cellulite, but the countless times I’ve been called a liar tell me otherwise.

8. Cat hair on your clothes. 

Again, this would require us to notice things like “details.”

9. A new haircut. 
Unless you shaved your head, we’re not going to realize your hair is half an inch shorter.

10. Highlights. 
It’s your regular hair but with a few strands of a different color. At least give us a hint before getting mad.

11. New glasses. 
All glasses are the same. Sorry, everyone.

12. Circles under the eyes. 
Sorry for getting lost in the vast and beautiful wilderness that is your eyes and not noticing that you look kind of tired. How can I be in trouble for that?

13. A new shade of lipstick. 
Listen, there is the color “red lipstick.” That is the only color of lipstick I’m aware of. I don’t know what all these other colors are, but they’re not real.

14. New jeans. 
We can’t even tell the difference between our own jeans, let alone yours.

15. A new home accessory.
I’m not spending the next 20 minutes going on a scavenger hunt to find the one new coaster in the living room.
