Why Yelling at a Man Doesn't Work

What a woman says:

This place is a mess!
You and I need to clean up!
Your stuff is lying on the floor and you'll have no clothes to wear
if we don't do laundry right now!


What a man hears:

blah,blah,blah,blah, C'MON
blah,blah,blah,blah, YOU AND I
blah,blah,blah,blah, ON THE FLOOR
blah,blah,blah,blah, NO CLOTHES
blah,blah,blah,blah, RIGHT NOW!
