Bring On The Sass! When is it Acceptable for Women to be a Bit Witchy?
Most men across the country are dealt with girlfriends, sisters, mothers, and wives who can’t help but bring a little attitude wherever they go.
In some occasions, there are no excuses for poor behavior and being downright rude and difficult. On the other hand, some circumstances make it understandable as to why women get a little short, feisty, and downright bitchy.
Men, sometimes there is nothing to do except anticipate and prepare. Here are ten occasions that come to mind where being a little cranky, demanding, or full on bitchy is understandable with women. But ladies, please try and be a little considerate of others.
1. On Her Birthday
Another year older might be a day of celebration (21 finally legal!) or a day of panic (I’m 30 and not married!). Regardless of age, a girl’s special day is just that—her day. From the birthday party to dinner destination to special gifts received, if the woman isn’t happy, nobody is happy.
2. After Surgery
Whether it’s the flu or an important surgery where medication is needed, women have every right to become difficult for their friends, family, and significant other when doctors are involved. Sure people might wish some happy pills were in the prescription. But after all the pain and time spent in a doctor’s office, women have every right to have a serious case of sassiness.
3. On Her Period
You know that time of the month. She’s going thru a mix of emotions and hormones. For your best interest you should steer clear from your lady around this time. If you can’t stay away, make sure you bring her chocolate or french fries. When she starts crying or becomes angry for no reason, just smile and agree with her.
4. On Her Wedding Day
Here comes the bride all…crazy and stressed. No matter how much preparation has gone into a wedding, a bride is always worried about something on her wedding day. Whether it’s her hair, make-up, the weather outside, or in-law issues, a bride usually has something bothering her. Bite your tongue and make sure she gets down that aisle. Once that’s done, the reception tends to lighten things up in more ways than one.
5. During Any Sporting Event
Women might as well call game day “Men Do Nothing” day. With football season just getting underway, ladies can expect their boyfriends and husbands to completely check out. Ladies, you can’t honestly expect men to do housework, cook, or listen to your problems when their favorite team since birth has the ball. Unfortunately, many women don’t understand this and are ticked off the whole day. It’s fine to be a little annoyed but can you at least celebrate when our team wins?
6. Girls TV Hour
Whether it’s time for another cat fight on the ”Real Housewives,” the final rose ceremony on “The Bachelor,” or a dramatic patient on “Grey’s Anatomy,” women need their one hour of peace and quiet without interruptions. After a long day of working, cooking, cleaning, driving, and other tasks, all they want is one whole hour to themselves. If you can’t give that to them, watch out.
7. After Buying New Shoes
Is there really a reason to complain after buying a new pair of shoes? Believe it or not, there certainly is. Whether it’s heels or sandals or sneakers, it takes far too long to break in new shoes. As a result, blisters form, feet swell, and ladies get a little cranky. Guys, try not to take it personal. It’s not you—it’s the shoes.
8. Once The Water Breaks
After nine grueling months filled with aches and pains, weight gains, and morning sickness, a new mom can be more than demanding. Once that water breaks, men better obey. She’s yelling at you? Too bad. She’s bossing you around? So sad. She’s bringing a new child into the world and guys need to man up.
9. After Her Man Cheats
A woman finds out she has been cheated on? Watch out because being angry and upset is more than acceptable. Whether it’s a beginning relationship or a marriage, finding out your man is cheating on you has to be rough. Just ask Carrie Underwood in “Before He Cheats.” While some people would choose to wallow, eat ice cream, and cry, others grieve with attitude and sass. As the saying goes, time heals everything.
10. When Her Favorite Show Is Cancelled
Every chick has that one show that leaves people wondering, are you the only person watching it? It doesn’t matter to them. Whether it’s one of the last remaining soap operas or that cheesy drama series, when a girl’s favorite show doesn’t get renewed, they sometimes take it really, really hard. Promise them to buy every season on DVD and before you know it, they will be hooked on to something else.
