Is it selfishness or nature?
I am really starting to question men. Most, on average, are just NOT reliable at all. In the last week day I have heard myself say "oh he's a man...they are all like that" too many times. My male coworker was suppose to do something important and "forgot". Guy friend was suppose to meet me for dinner and was an hour late...my brother needed to be home by 5pm (he left for golf at noon!) so my sister-in-law & I could do some shopping (her urgency was HIS power bars, apparently he gets grumpy when she doesn't keep them stocked)...by 7, we just took the kid with us...and when she drove me home at 9pm she still hadn't heard from him. I'm bloody embarassed MY brother would behave that way - he is such a responsible guy! In fact, he was one man I've always looked to to restore my faith in the decency of men ;-) Today, I called a guy and asked a simple yes or no question: would you like to go golfing today? (he's been saying "we should" "we gotta go sometime" etc) And he says, "I'll call you back." Of course, he DIDN'T. This is just one typical week - nothing new or out of the ordinary. So are men really this thoughtless & inconsiderate or is there something wrong with their brains that makes them this way?
Cause I gotta say, having vented to my gfs - they agree with me that this REGULAR, COMMONPLACE male behaviour. I am not implying ALL men are like this and I am not implying women aren't. I am merely saying my gfs are rarely late, and rarely forget to "call" and NEVER just disappear for hours on end...its my experience.
