AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO SEE ME?
I was taking a drink at that moment and I did a spit-take; I asked my male companion, "Do you know that there are things that ONLY men say?"
He asked what I meant and I mentioned what had just been said and I continued, "Here's another: what can I do you for; no woman would say that!"
He laughed, obviously in recognition, and asked, "What are some other examples?"
I said, "Only men say are you working hard or hardly working and ever since Christ was a Corporal, but my favorite is when men are in stores and they see a male acquaintance they will ask are you going to pay for mine too?"
"When you say "Hi.", men will answer, "Not for a long time."
I swear I have never heard a woman use any of those conversational gambits.
I told him that I'd written a BLOG article entitled THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN and that I'd mentioned that men seem to have a problem with small talk.
