Or, maybe not.
I discovered this video after surfing a news site which featured a new tab marked “idiots.” Naturally, I HAD to click. Here's the thing. I admit I have to chuckle at this guy. Who wouldn’t? And yes, I guess I would agree that this man is indeed correctly categorized as an idiot in this circumstance but I also must admit this: I completely understand him. To be quite honest, I might have continued mowing my lawn too.
And I suspect I wouldn’t be the only guy. Am I right guys? It’s all about how we guys think.
Now wives/significant others reading this: don’t misconstrue this. I am not suggesting we men typically think like idiots. Stop nodding like bobble-heads. My goal is to defend men. Let me explain.
Try to imagine the determined lawn-mower-man’s thought process...Say it’s a weekend. Say a guy has a lot of things on his to-do list. Say he ALWAYS has a lot of things on this to-do list. Say he wants to get them over with. Say there’s something important happening later. Say there’s beer and/or nachos involved. And say he was almost finished the lawn anyway.
See? It all makes sense now. We guys take risks simply to be more efficient. There is a price to pay though: according to popsci.com, men are 82% more likely to be struck by lightning than women.
Uh oh. I just realized something. Maybe lightning is attracted to idiots? Bummer. Most likely that means I'm next.
