Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus

This was written after a very heated,5 day discussion over the all important life altering issue of - Sanding verses Buffing - The repair of the hard wood floors in my new apartment.
 
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.  A never ending battle of the sexes that seems to have been going on since the beginning of time, has this battle changed either party's way of thinking?  Has it eased up just a little bit?  Has one single solitary issue been solved? Nope, not at all!

A very close friend of mine (a wise women she is) said it best: "men see what they call the overall big picture, so to speak, as we women pay attention to the little details."  Wow! That small statement speaks volumes.  Just think of the last female VS male argument you were a part of (or not a part maybe jus t a spectator or a confidant for either party).  What was the true basis of that argument? BINGO! The solution or answer that he saw was cut & dry, plain & simple, right there in plain sight- in his eyes that is in black and white.  Meanwhile there was a little voice in your head screaming or maybe not so much in your head as it was out loud- YOU JUST DON'T GET IT! It's not that simple, how could you be so oblivious to the obvious?  Which takes us right back to my friends statement - "He just sees a picture while we pay close attention to the details."

Now with this GRAND REVELATION you would think the solution is in reach: Just teach men to pay a little more attention to the details and women to pay a little less and we should be able to come to a happy medium, right? Wrong if it were that easy we would all be living harmoniously together as a united front bonded by the almighty power of... AGREEMENT! Instead we spend most of our adult lives living La Vida.

The truth of the matter is our brains are just wired differently when it comes to certain ways of processing and thinking plain & simple, and if we just acknowledge that and accept it whole heartedly then maybe just maybe we could be able to live not in absolute harmony but mindful and respectful of each ones differences, 'cause in the end all most of us really want as Ms. Franklin said it best, is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Until then, we all know many a relationship will end & buckets of tears will be cried because they both looked and he saw a picture of a brown dog while she saw a 95-100lb, caramel coated, brown eyed award winning pedigree. Figuratively speaking  but you get it, right?
