Default Why don't men listen??

I need the advice of the more mature men on the forum, since they've all been in this situation, I'm sure. Ladies, feel free to give me your insight as well. Ok, here's the scenario.....

(Those of you who live in cities with red light cameras will appreciate this.)

You go out with your hubby, have a nice dinner out, walk a little in the gorgeous weather, have a good time. Then, coming home, on the same main road you've both lived near for years, you notice how fast he's going, you know he has drum brakes on his car, and you know how many green lights you can pretty much go through before you'll hit a red. It becomes second nature after years of driving, right?

You TELL your husband TWO blocks ahead of time that he needs to start slowing down, because the next red light he will hit is the one with the red light camera....and if he doesn't slow down now, he won't be able to stop for it.

Long story short.....I will soon be getting a ticket in the mail for $155, since this moron didn't LISTEN TO HIS WIFE LIKE HE'S SUPPOSED TO!

Tell me guys.....WHY on earth do men insist on ignoring what we tell them to do??? Especially when you've been with him since you're both 16 years old and this situation has played itself out in generally the same way every time for almost two decades???

Ok, seriously....I understand the logic (kind of) behind this.....but why would you not learn your lesson after going through similar scenarios weekly for nearly 20 years of your life....and after every time, finding out that *I* am right, and he should have listened to me in the first place??

Case in point: Right after High school, we're about 20, together a few years....at the house of my girlfriend (who later became my SIL). He's having a few beers....fine, no problem. My gf baked brownies....and he decides to have 4 of them. I tell him....."you really shouldn't be having brownies and beer....doesn't sound like it would mix well." I'm not even going to get into the end result of this story, LOL. I'm sure you can figure it out.

This is a little different scenerio. This goes on the over all temptation of sweets to the common sense of the wife. What will when out. For a guy it would be the temptation of the sweets.

Speaking of brownies.. I am eating some right now and drinking rum. go figure.

ok Krystal, first your spot on.....but we're just seriously overconfident. You love us for it though.

Second, I've been flashed three times with no ticket here in LA. Maybe you'll get lucky (see we're pragmatic too).

What i have learned is that most men if not all suffer from Selective Hearing. In this case scenario I would have said "red light ahead. big ticket. lots of money to pay. Prove how smart are you."

I suffer from selective hearing, and it comes from nag,nag,nag. I used to listen until I started hearing nag, nag, nag. You know, after while, it does not matter what is said, you just figure that you are listening to nag, nag, nag.

If you listened the first time, we wouldn't need to nag. End of story.

That's right sista! Although...selective hearing can be used to our advantage remember. Honey...I told you yesterday just after 5pm that I was leaving for a week and yes, needed the credit card for a few necessities. Works for me!
