Have you ever watched those old shows like Little House on the Prairie, you know when Charles comes home from working all they, his wife and the kids act as if Santa Clause has just came home. He kisses the wife, the kids hug him and then he washes up. Then dinner is fixed, the children shut the hell up, and mama makes sure that father is not bothered or harassed. When it’s all over with, the kids go to bed, mommy and daddy have some grown folks time, and boom, everybody is good. I don’t know about you ladies, but I can tell you that if you have a good man, hell that’s all that he wants. It’s just that simple, but nooo, not in 2014, women don’t know how to submit, but let’s get out of the fantasy world and get real.
Check the scene, Tyrone is a good brother, married with two kids right. He comes home from work; the kids are running around like they have lost their damn minds. You look in the kitchen, no food is on the stove, and nothing is cooking. You walk to your bedroom; your woman is laying down sleep, or watching TV. You are hungry as a mofo, but you already know that if you dare say something about where’s the food, you might get ya head cut off. You ask any damn way, why are the kids running around, and what am I gonna eat? Why didn’t you say something to them, and why can’t you cook? Now, I don’t know about you ladies, but I got a problem with this one. Why, just why, couldn’t she say, I’ll tell them to keep it down, and I don’t know, what do you want? Better yet, this should have been done before Tyrone got home.
Now, some women will say that they are not maids, and this is not the days of Little House on the Prairie. One thing that does not change is the way that a man or a woman wants to be treated, right? Women like security, like to be spoiled, and love attention. This has been the same since the days of the Garden of Eden. Now us men on the other hand, like to feel honored, empowered, and like we are in charge. You know, the head honcho, the HNIC, the King (Kang), or whatever you want to call him. How can he feel that way when he is always being challenged? Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect you to treat every man this way, but a man who handles his business should have no problem. A man will rush home with his paycheck in hand and sign it over for some of that “King” treatment. We are pretty damn simple, and for some reason it is so hard to get this out of a woman now-a-days. I must say that I am quite lucky to have a woman who will actually let me take charge, at least on most things.
My dad is 63 years old, and when he gets home the damn dog eats before him! He is tired as hell, and hungry, and the dog is laying there with a chicken bone in his mouth. My baby brother has a big ass plate of food, and then when it’s his turn to eat some of the moms good ole cooking; he has a plate full of beans and one piece of meat. WTF kind of treatment is this? I wouldn’t blame my pops if he were to pack his bags and get ghost. I’m a mama’s boy and I can say that mama is wrong for this one. My pops works from sun up to sun down, to get home and get this treatment, GTFOH! God forbid if he builds up the nerve to complain, he might not get those beans.
What I am saying ladies is that you can get what you want from a man, a good man who is, just make sure you are giving him what he needs. Check ya attitudes sometimes, what’s wrong with letting ya man know that he is in control? Everything shouldn’t come with a buck the system attitude, just say, “Yes, Dear.” Practice that will ya, if ya man ask you to do something, say, “Yes Dear”, and shut the hell up. Try that and get back to me!
