It drives me truly crazy how presumptuous and boundary illiterate men can be.
Call me a crazy feminist, but in my experience I have not had great luck getting through to my male friends.
It seems like no matter what I say, they only have one thing in mind, and it’s not my brilliant views on world politics or biology! The only thing they ever love is their own male biology, if you catch my drift. Recently, this was even the case when it came to arranging a routine HVAC unit inspection for my central HVAC system. I had been putting off the air quality control repair appointment for at least a year because I didn’t have a lot of money to pay a professional HVAC serviceman. Finally, I had some spare money and I knew that I needed to diagnose my A/C system before the brutal overheated and humid summer set in. I called the local heating and cooling repair shop and arranged for a routine repair and diagnostics appointment for my cooling system. When the HVAC serviceman arrived at my home he was immediately a bit strange. He kept asking me questions about my fiance and our temperature control settings together. After the cooling system was repaired and he approached me for payments, I thought it was strange that he asked for my phone number in case of any HVAC emergencies. After he texted me at 4 a.m. for many nights in a row, I understood why. Dude, I just wanted my heating and cooling system repaired, this wasn’t supposed to be a first date.
