The Rules

Recently I was shopping at a store the had merchandise on both the main level and the basement. As I was walking down the stairs to the lower level I saw this fabric wall sign that made me chuckle:

In case the photo is hard to read, here are THE RULES.

  1. The FEMALE always makes THE RULES
  2. THE RULES are subject to change at any time without prior notice.
  3. No MALE can possibly know all THE RULES.
  4. If the FEMALE suspects the MALE knows all THE RULES she must immediately change some or all THE RULES. 
  5. The FEMALE is never wrong.
  6. If the FEMALE is wrong it is due to a misunderstanding which was the direct result of something the MALE said or did.
  7. The MALE must apologize for causing said misunderstanding.
  8. The MALE is always wrong.
  9. The MALE may be right if he agrees with the FEMALE unless she wants him to disagree.
  10. The FEMALE may change her mind at any time.
  11. The MALE may never change his mind without the express written consent of the FEMALE.
  12. The FEMALE has every right to be angry or upset at any time. 
  13. The MALE must remain calm at all times unless the FEMALE wants him to be angry and/or upset.
  14. The FEMALE must under no circumstances let the MALE know whether she wants him to be angry and/or upset.
  15. The MALE is expected to mind read at all times.

  1. This does bring a chuckle or two. I wonder how many females this WORKED for, I'd like to know. Still, it's a good read and smile maker.

    Wishing you a Happy, Healthy, & Prosperous 2022.

  2. What was on the lower level, a dominatrix dudgeon?

    1. No, it's actually a kitchen and cookware store, which might be the closest thing to female domination :-)

  3. What a good list! makes me smile
