Of men and women

In today’s world of miniaturization and micro-everything, men are the real experts:
While women still lug around 5 pound hand bags containing “stuff they need”, men manage to fit everything they’ll ever need into a wallet some 30 times smaller.

Women on the other hand, are the masters of multitasking. Our guy still has trouble reading the newspaper while watching the ball game. The secretary at my office however, can reply to Email when on the phone, holding the person in person in front of her while handing me the forms and still managing to smile at the boss who just entered – all at the same time!

One of my friends she has this 'Cant-just -do-one-thing-at-a-time-always-need-more' syndrome. She'd miss something if she doesn't do multi-tasking. Women!!

Considering me, I find it tough to even heat water when I'm on a phone call. Shamelessly I tell "I'll have to call you back. I'm gonna cook!" ;)

Interesting. But the Multitasking thing, I'm a pathological case. I need to do atleast two things at the same time! :D

Multi Tasking.. :D I remember how my friend went bursting into laughter and still laughs like crazy about an incident that happened during the hostel days. I told her, 'macha, when I wash clothes I do multi tasking da. I keep the tap opened to fill water in the bucket and simultaneously wash clothes with the soap and brush at the same time. In the meanwhile I will also squeeze off the clothes for drying'.

I didn't know at that time that that was what washing clothes is all about.

Yeah...I'm pretty much the same kind. I can't even listen to music while writing.

Dude, you must be some kinda exception to the rule :D
Don't know many guys who multi-task

Well, I guess you know why most secretaries are women...

I am yet to meet a woman who can pack light. I remember the time when we went on tour from college. While all the guys managed to fit their stuff in decent-sized bags, the women needed something at least twice as big...and I'm not kidding

Kinda the same way I learnt how to do laundry too.

@busy writer
fit stuff into your jeans! that's so un-womanlike aint it?...where's your 8pound handbag?

i have to admit, the closest I ever came to multitasking was listening to music while surfing the net and munching on a bag of Cheetos

looks like your secretary is a lot like me :D
I guess multitasking is a real talent but i wouldnt generalize, though agreed that most men just do not get how to do few things simultaneously!

-=A.R.N.=- said...

well, putting "I wouldn't generalize" and "men just don't get to do.." in the same sentence kinda conflicts don't ya think?
But agree, I don't know any guy who does more than two things at once.
