Emily's husband was working on the roof over the weekend when he fell and hurt himself. Luckily he was coming down the ladder when he lost his footing and hit the ground so it wasn't that bad- just a pulled groin muscle. Considering it's only a pulled muscle, Emily is getting a little tired of him playing the "poor me" card and whining for her to bring him a drink or get him a snack.She told him, although he needs to rest that part of his body, he can still get up and walk so he can fend for himself. He didn't break a leg, for heavens sake!
When Slacker is sick or hurt, he does not want anyone to take care of him. He just wants to be left alone.
Steve never complains because he does not have anyone to complain to. When he is old, he will have his 18 year old wife take care of him. Steve does not understand the guys that act like that. Slacker says it is because he is a loner.
Slacker says that when you get married it is for better or worse.
Do men really whine more than women when they are sick or injured?
