The Difference Between Men and Women

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. ~Katharine Hepburn

Besides THAT.

Yesterday, my DH came home with a new phone for our kitchen. He was thrilled! It was sturdy and functional and he couldn't understand why I wasn't happy with his purchase. Why? Because it looks like this:

Yes, folks... DH bought a shop phone for use in the main part of our house. When I complained that it was ugly, he kept saying it was sturdy and functional. According to him, our other phone was a cheap piece of junk (that had, oddly, lasted us a good five years) and he didn't want a cheap piece of junk again.

Ah. So our only option is a bright orange, rubber shop phone. Now I understand.

Today is Dd's agility competition. Originally, I'd planned to lead her through both runs because she listens to me better and I'm competitive -- i.e. I WANT TO WIN. But, *sigh*, it's for FUN, so I'm letting DD run her once. She all but came out of her skin with excitement when I told her. I hope the dog does fantastically for her.

I'll try to take videos. I'm not sure where we'll be sitting or how things will be set up. Wish us luck!

Sending good thoughts the agility comp will go well.

And the phone... I can't help but laugh. It's such tangible evidence that they don't get it about the little things, isn't it? But hey, that can phone probably survive any disaster, so that's a good thing!

Happy Sunday. :-)

Have fun and good luck to you, DD and Dd!! Looking forward to seeing the videos!

So, do you have to decorate your kitchen around that phone?? Only a man would buy something like that for the house. *sigh*

That IS truly hideous, M~, it's almost funny.
Guys surely do think differently about things. It's gotta be 007 syndrome-functional in any crisis.
A man prepared.

Good luck with the Agility!

I like the new look of your blog and the tagline/logo. That's so true!

Have a relaxing day!

Good luck to you both on the agility run. Hope you both do well. The phone is truly ugly. What is he thinking?

Dru said...

That's a man phone. I like phones that are sturdy, functional and look pretty. You know he wanted that phone for himself.

Good luck with agility competition and have fun.

I have to echo what everyone else has said. That is one UGLY phone!

anno said...

At least he hasn't asked you to change the decor in the main part of the house to match. Yet.

Good luck at Agility!

Too funny about the phone.

I can so relate to this post. Sadly.

Brandy said...

That phone is major UGLY. Why do men have no sense of aesthetics? Hope everything goes well at the Agility Competition!

Brandy said...

HA! Showed the picture of the phone to my hubs and even he agreed that is NOT a kitchen phone. Of course he also said he would know better that to do that. *G*

Good luck with the agility!

Hmm.. That's one ugly phone. I can relate. :)
