Here’s an entertaining article about the creation of the “human nag” by staff writer Rigby Rat. Now men, if you’re going to complain about being nagged, wouldn’t you take care to not cause the situation in the first place. Thomas Jefferson said it best: “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.”
If your wife asks you to do something, do you do it? If you don’t, does she ask you a second time? A third time? You just created a nag.
Why would a guy turn his wife into a nag? Why, indeed? But let’s recall who he first turned into a nag: his mother. She would have said something like this – “Jack, please take out the garbage. Jack did you take out the garbage? Jack, if you don’t take the garbage out right now…”
Even most dogs – when you tell them once – will respond immediately. “Come on Rocky, let’s go for a walk.” And BAM, your dog flies out the front door. You guys? You aren’t as frisky, inclined, or as intelligent as a dog when it comes to taking care of business the first time. Instead, you procrastinate. And isn’t procrastination an attractive trait in a man?
Food for thought: When the mistress asks you over and over and over again to leave the “old ball and chain,” I bet you don’t refer to HER as a nag.
