For the most part, that’s just not how we roll. I mean, I’d wager a lot of guys have been brought up to think that showing emotion is a sign of weakness.
Chalk it up to the old-school way of thinking, I guess. And that’s probably why we tend to go a bit overboard with the “Crazy” label when our wives or girlfriends get emotional from time to time.
Honestly, I think it’s a good idea if we scaled back a bit on the “crazy” comments just because they’re not dead stoic like some of us. This funny video makes a good point of that:
Sure, the ladies in our lives can get a tad unreasonable from time to time, but playing the crazy card doesn’t really work unless she’s doing something that’s genuinely insane.
