Moany men should be renamed Mennings!!

I think every female of this planet is aware of how MOANY men can be. They moan beyond belief. They moan about the most insignificant ridiculous things almost to the point where it’s comical.  And then there is the mood swings, oh dear god, the moods swings are intense and often worse than a woman in the height of her pregnancy. Men bring moaning to a whole new level. And what’s even more funny is that they believe their moaning to be justified. Men are Mars and women are from Venus, I certainly agree more and more with this statement each day. All men of all ages have inspired this insert from Dad’s to friends to ex’s and any other male species that I have come into contact with!

The are some many reasons why they moan but there are a few top reasons that spring to the forefront of my mind.

The MAN FLU – Every woman on earth can relate to this one. This one never seizes to blow my mind. Imagine a man had to go through child birth or all the other things that women have to go through. A sniffle from a man’s nose leads to them taking to the bed for a week or so. They decorate their bedroom and surround themselves with boxes of pills, just to make it that more dramatic!  Have you ever in your life come across such OTT behaviour?!? In extreme OTT cases they opt for an anti- biotic and yet they never really seem to lose their appetite, strange that!  When recovered from the MAN FLU they then tend to recite this to everyone they know for weeks after! If a woman took to the bed for a week, the world would fall apart. The below clip is extremely apt here….

They’re tired – For the love of God, there is nothing more unbelievable than a tired man. It’s 100% all about them when this happens and they need to speak with a moany droany tone to tell you that they are just SOOOO tired. What they really need to do is build a bridge and stop harping on about it because we females actually really don’t care about how much beauty sleep they have or have not had. We just find it annoying. I bet even Brad Pitt moans when he’s tired. But we can defo make exceptions for that one!

BHD (Bad Hair Day) – They moan when they are having a BAD HAIR DAY??. I never thought the day would come when a man moans more about his hair than any woman. If a man does not style his hair right,  you will often hear a moaning tutting sound coming from the mirror as they stand there,  perfecting their grass length hair, strand by strand! Oh sweet God, this issue is becoming more prevalent amongst 25-35 bracket.

Hunger – They say a best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. They should rephrase this one to, ‘The best way to shut them up is to feed them’. A hungry moany man is really really annoying. They moan about being weak and tired if they have not eaten for two hours. Women need to be careful not to feed men all of the time when they moan. This is because they will get fat and then will moan about how they are putting on weight and then moan about the food that you feed them. It a vicious circle ladies!!

Losing – Men are the sorest looosers going. The will moan the head off the nearest person the minute they lose a bet, match, (a suit in some cases!) and money. They sink into an almighty depression the minute their pocket takes a hit. They just cannot take a hit!  They alose their minds and form an internal rage!.  Some men may also be reduced to tears especially when their team loses an important match!

Go on Robert!!

Getting Some – Men moan when they don’t get some action for quite a time. This needs no elaboration!!!

However as much as men moan, they also have their redeeming qualities even if these are far and few between!!

  1. Oh God they moan about bloody everything. I am really grateful for your article by the way! Ex-h was a champion moaner and I got off the carousel after 8 years because no way was that ship going anywhere. I have been out and worked with a number of guys and they moan about the littlest things. Like, “The coffee machine isn’t right.” “What? Why not?” “Well, I don’t know. It just isn’t right.” – Oh for f-s sake you spoiled brats, just MAN UP and make it work, that’s what you’re there for, isn’t it? As bad, if not worse than, teenagers, a woman on her period or going through menopause!
