It’s about time I post something new; I’ve been slacking lately, in an arduous kind of way. Nonetheless, I work at a corporation where women are in abundance; then I come home after work to two women. I think it’s safe to say I get my fair share of females in a day.
One day at work, a fellow male employee decided to (boldly) enter an argument with one of the female employees. Knowing the complications, I quickly tried to change his mind, but to no avail. He was dead set on arguing with her. Long story short, he lost the argument, and sad to say, he’ll continue to lose arguments as long as he continues his adamancy of arguing with women.
I learned a long time ago that it is ultimately pointless to argue with a woman; I learned that fact from my father who told it to me in private, and then it was confirmed every day of my life henceforth. Why is it pointless to argue with a woman? To be honest, I can’t say I know all of the inner workings of a woman; even women don’t know the inner workings of women. But I can say this: it is vastly complicated, and to top it all off, women thrive off of emotions, which are dependable at best. Here’s a deeper look into why a man shouldn’t argue with a woman.
You will lose. Every time. Women are complicated creatures, and to better demonstrate their thought processes, I learned from a book that women are like spaghetti or noodles—you never know what is connected to what. On the other hand, men are like waffles. Men thrive on tackling one issue at a time, hence the various boxes. Sure, the stuff in the boxes may be related, but for every issue there is a different box. Women know this all too well, and being historically manipulative as they are, they use that to their full advantage.
Firstly, men need to realize that unlike the male mentality, women want to win the argument. They don’t care about winning the argument at hand, they just want to win the argument. With that being said, men should notice that any time you corner a woman argumentatively she will switch the topic. This is a ploy to try and level the playing field, and unfortunately, men fall for it. Like I said earlier, women are like spaghetti, so everything is connected, so to her, everything is fair game in this argument about Michael coming home late, for example. That and the fact that she just wants to win the argument, means that it doesn’t matter to her if she doesn’t resolve the issue with Michael coming home late; after she’s switched up the story so many times and he’s befuddled, victory is hers. Also, women know that men really don’t like dealing with too many things at once, especially hearing it from her, but what happens during this sometimes heated exchanges? I’ll break it down even further.
Michael comes home late one night after a long day at the office. He decided that instead of coming straight home, he would stay back with the crew at work and hang out to have some chill time. Among those who work with him is Marianna, someone who Jane, Michael’s wife, detests. Jane meets Michael at the door and immediately it’s on. Jane wants to know why Michael is home so late. Michael is tired and just wants to go to bed, nonetheless he still tells her a quick summary of what happened. Of course, Jane isn’t hearing that. She just spent the last 6 hours storing up her emotions and her arguments for Michael, and he’s just going to brush it off? Not happening. So, she unloads on Michael, much to his dismay. Michael then stops her rampage by telling her a more comprehensive version of his adventures that night, also showing Jane a video on his phone of Michael and the crew having fun at Buffalo Wild Wings. Jane doesn’t see Jackson, Brent, Harvey, Trevor, nor Jason; Jane only sees Marianna, whom she detests. Here’s where it gets interesting.
Jane then starts onto a new topic, because it is clear that she lost what she initially argued about: Michael coming home late. Instead, now seeing Marianna, she sees new life. She now questions Michael about Marianna, who was Michael’s ex, implying that Michael really went to hang out with Marianna than hang out with everybody. Anybody, male or female, who has been in this position knows what can possibly follow, and it’s honestly too long to type, but that’s the reason why a man should never argue with a woman. In case you missed it, here’s why.
You will lose. Every time. Women are masters of remembering the things they need in an argument, and because they seemingly remember “everything,” when a man steps into battle against a women, he’s going up against potentially years worth of proof, arguments, and “evidence.” Like poor Michael, if you started arguing about coming home late, you’ll more than likely end up on “what kind of women you really like,” or something so hard left, when you look at it, it makes no sense. Like I said earlier, women, after losing their initial argument, don’t care about that particular instance any more. All they want to do is win. As long as you’re arguing with them, they will twist and warp that discussion until something gives way and they gain the upper hand. Then, when they do win, they flip it back to the original topic and claim that too!
My advice? Don’t argue. My mom, sister, and many of my female friends hate me for one thing only: the fact that I don’t argue. It’s like a wrench in the gears; women can’t stand when a man doesn’t argue, simply because a woman isn’t coming to argue logic-first; she’s coming because she’s so upset or perturbed that she needs to get it out. Her emotions come first, logic second. So, when she comes storming, just do what I do and dip. Not only does it kill her drive, but it also lessens the chances of you getting “evidence” used against you in the future.
This is of course assuming that the man is right. Now, for those guys who are clearly wrong, but still try to argue their way out of it, it doesn’t make any sense. Let’s say Michael did cheat on Jane with Marianna, and he came home late. Automatically he’s thinking of a lie, which has no real physical basis so it’s very easy to forget. The thing is, in that situation, the only thing that’s changed is that he’s wrong. Everything is still the same. She’s still coming with a million and one things to say; now add that to Michael’s lie. His lie will put him in deeper quicksand than the truth, because when she switches it back and forth, because his lie is inconsistent, and because he’s so desperately trying to justify his cause, he’s bound to slip up, and Jane will not miss it for the world.
The morale of the story is, just don’t argue with them guys. Better yet, don’t say a thing. Any thing you say can be used against you in a court of law. Even a simple: “Whatever” can be warped into your worst nightmare. Just keep it cool, keep it chill, and remember, if you enter into an argument with a woman, you will lose. Every time.
