With the assumption that you all know a woman, I can happily assume that you have also encountered some wonderful quirks of that such female that you don't understand. I know for a fact, that countless times I have stood and watched my mother clean the air freshener in my bathroom, shaking my head, and shouting "Woman! People poop in this room! Does it matter?" but she would always continue as if there was a higher entity telling her that it was right.
So here are a few random pointless quirks that you may recognise happening around you, but never stopped to do more than shake your head at.
On the bed, on the sofa, or even the "What if guests come around" pillows. They will swarm your household as if they are taking over. God forbid that you should put them back in the wrong order, or even not at all. Be prepared for one of the biggest lectures. I personally have 7 pillows on my bed that go in an exact order, and it is purely scientific when I purchase a new one. How can I stack these properly now?!
Cute boxes full of nothing
If you live with a female, get up from your sitting position and search your house for an obscure box. No wait! Come back! Jeez, take me with you! Right... open up the box and take a look inside. Now you could find a variation of objects in there - nick nacks, jewellery, birthday cards or best of all. Nothing. Now try and think of one time that we have actually used that box. Struggling? Well here is a secret! We don't! It all starts with noticing an adorable box in a shop and spending twenty minutes, whilst carrying the box around (just in case) and thinking of something we could actually use it for. Long story short? We decide to purchase it anyway, adamant that we will think of something...anything...Damn it. Well it sure does look pretty on the side.
Don't touch my fancy mug
Does these sentences sound familiar? "Why are you drinking out of my mug?" "Don't use that one, it's meant for guests" "That's a coffee mug! Grab a tea cup!" Yes? Well it can only mean that you are either living with me, or with a fellow mug collector. Mugs are so cheap, and always adorable, so of course you pick one up that makes you smile. Then you notice another one a month later and figure out that it must be a set! Your heart starts to pound as your realise it would be sacrilege to not purchase the entire collection! But wait! That set it cute too! We have guests right? Ooh that one is china! We see the pope right?
Jesus woman! You will set the place on fire!
From the candles in your bedroom that she lights when she reads, to the bath time tea lights, to the fancy candles she will never light. Ever. Why? Because they are too damn pretty that's why! They will fill your house with every scent from cinnamon to bubblegum. Each room is a new lighting and scent, until your nose hairs are burnt from the hallway's "Mandarin Glaze". Every candle shop will be 90% sniffing every scent she can, and 10% thinking of places to put them. Ooh a matching candle holder! Well, they have to go somewhere right?
Bathroom bottle fort!
Now, remember that feeling of running out of shower gel, and debating using a facewipe? Well, that's not a problem with women. Sure they may run out of shampoo and conditioner, but they still have that bubblebath that their grandmother gave them as a birthday present in 2008. Bath bombs, Shower gel from every shop in a 5 mile radius, soap from that holiday you went on 6 years ago, they have it all. All of the chaos of bottles takes up half of your bathroom, but hey! Toilet forts are fun!
So there you have it. A small amount of quirks of a female life that make our lives somehow much better, and yours? Well... Never mind!
But with all of these quirks combined and more, it's the strange sides that we all love and know!
So ladies! Never change who you are or what you do! So what if you accidentally set his jumper on fire with your favourite fresh linen candle and tried to put it out with strawberry bubble bath? You can always buy more clothes! And guess what shop is next to it!
