Enquiring Minds: Things Everyone Should Know [SURVEY]
According to a new survey, here are the top five things a "real man" should know: His wedding anniversary . . . basic do-it-yourself tasks . . . how to change a light bulb . . . how to tie a tie . . . and how to read a map.
A new survey asked more than 2,000 people to name the things a REAL MAN should know. Also . . . are we really still talking about what makes a "real man"? Isn't that notion already kind of outdated?
Anyway, here are the top 9 things a "real man" should know:
1. His wedding anniversary.
2. How to change a light bulb.
3. How to tie a tie.
4. How to read a map.
5. His significant other's favorite drink.
6. How to iron a shirt.
7. How to change a tire.
8. How to shave.
9. The right amount of aftershave and cologne to use.
I was reading over this list, and I thought: Wait, some of this stuff is just basic stuff that every person should know, male or female. I mean, wouldn't you want your wife to know your wedding anniversary? And who doesn't know how to put in a light bulb? I don't think we're living in some kind of strange age where only men are allowed to know how to read a map.
But then, I do think there are some things that everyone should know - like how to drive a manual transmission. It's just handy! Not only that, but I really had a roommate in college who didn't know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich because their parents had never let them touch the oven...... ever. At the age of 22, I taught a young adult how to make a sandwhich .
So that made me wanna turn to you for the basics: What's a task or skill that every man should know? What about the ladies - what are the things a "real woman" should know?
