10 Tweets That Prove How Much Men Are Like Babies When They Get Sick

When was the last time you had a cold? I’m not talking about a sniffle, I’m talking about a knock-down, drag-out cold that laid you flat on your back for a week and had you wishing you were dead? It is something that happens to all of us from time to time but there is a difference in the way we experience them. If you are a woman, you probably remember not feeling well but you would get up and go about your day. If you were a man, you probably had what most wives refer to as the ‘man cold’.

A man cold is a rather unusual occurrence and it is only spoken of in the most loving of ways by the women in their lives. It describes the complaining that most men do when they have a sniffle and they want everyone in the world to realize that they are not feeling well. It can be a real problem for their wives and the rest of their families. Not only do they lay around the house and moan like a walrus that just got harpooned, they expect to be waited on hand and foot.

Now, we could probably understand if this happened to all people but it does seem to be confined to the men in our lives. When a woman has a cold, not only does she get no sympathy from her husband, he will forget all of the times in the past that he was the biggest pain in the butt who ever walked the face of the earth. Don’t believe me? Check out these man cold tweets:
