Why are men so illogical. Why is there though process so different to that of women. Admittedly the vacuum cleaner is a great invention for removing dirt from the floor, but the dirt can leave behind a mark showing where it was. So he who will not be mentioned was helping me to clean the kitchen. My kitchen has a stone floor, similar to the one in the photo where I keep all my household bits and pieces.

My assistant was ready to go and found that the best solution was to use the vacuum cleaner – just a three minute job. Life would be so much easier if that was all my kitchen tiles would need. However, that is where the thought process differs. I really tried to explain the reason why it is easier to take a mop, wipe over the floor and gather the various refuse from the floor in one place. You then have a clean floor and can apply the vacuum cleaner.

Here there was a difference in the male and female thought process. It seems that the assistant found that the vacuum cleaner did it all, and there was no need for the mop. I had to explain that would be a perfect solution, but not everything in household work is done by a machine. There was a heated discussion. Needless to say I had the last word.
