24 Times You Actually Need A Man In Your Life

24 Times You Actually Need A Man In Your Life

We’ve known all along that girls are, by all means, the superior sex. I’m a firm believer in the “anything men can do, women can do 20 times better” mantra, because it’s true. However, while men are, for the most part, pretty damn useless, there are a few times they come in handy. I know when I’m in some of these pinches, I wish more than anything I had a guy at my disposal. So while you never ACTUALLY need a man, here are 24 times you kind of, at least a little bit, need a man.

  1. The “check engine” light turns on in my car and I have no idea what to do from there.
  2. A spider lands three feet away from me.
  3. I can’t reach the wine glasses.
  4. Or anything above the bottom shelf, really.
  5. I’m reorganizing the furniture in my room.
  6. Two words: shoveling snow.
  7. I’m carrying my luggage from my room to my car.
  8. Answering the door any time after 7 p.m.
  9. After buying the cutest chandelier while antiquing and having this crazy desire to hang it up.
  10. Moving from home to school.
  11. Moving into my apartment.
  12. Moving in general.
  13. “Why is my car making a ‘brrrrrrr-amp’ noise?”
  14. A wasp family has conveniently moved in next to the front door.
  15. I heard a noise after watching “The Conjuring,” and I want someone else to go investigate what it was.
  16. Taking out the garbage
  17. My car just flat out isn’t starting.
  18. I have more than four bags of groceries.
  19. Visiting the darker portions of my basement to make sure there aren’t any half-moth, half-cricket creatures lurking down there.
  20. When I want to be carried home from the bar because I’m too drunk tired to walk.
  21. “Will you pass me the remote?”
  22. Building my new IKEA dresser.
  23. Anything involving the use of power tools because we all know I’m just going to hurt myself somehow.
  24. Foot massages. All the foot massages.
