Men: What you need to know

GRIN # 375

Seems lately I’ve been writing about all the things I’ve learned from men. So I’ve decided to return the favor and give you guys a “heads-up” about something. (Sorry ladies!).

I just saw a commercial for Public Storage, where a guy and girl move in together and they’re overrun with stuff. “They” decide the perfect solution is to rent a space at Public Storage for the guy’s beer can collection and other bachelorhood items.

Guys, this is the oldest trick in the book. Your woman thinks your prize possessions are crap and she wants them out of the house. For good. But she’s smart enough to take her time about it.

The storage unit is the transition holding pen which leads directly to the trash can.

The theory is, once your stuff is out of sight, you’ll no longer miss it. She may or may not tell you when it’s disposed of. If she does, she will likely precede that bad news with something good, the details of which we won’t go into as this is a family blog.

The only reason I divulge this tidbit now, at this late date, is that after 14 years of marriage I have finally gotten rid of all the black Def Leppard t-shirts, barstools, shot glasses stolen from bars, the beer mug collection, Budweiser coin collector, random road signs, cheap manly sheets and, well, you get the idea.

But, guys, in the end it all works out okay, because your beloved will create a much nicer home for you with her things.

Not that I’m biased.
