Initially, I was taught about this “miscommunication” by my father who tried to always tell my mother to be ready at a specific time, which unbeknownst to her was 15 minutes before he really wanted to leave. I believe this to be a brilliant idea that has seen much success over the years. Likewise, other philosophers and theologians have their differing and consenting opinions on how to rectify this situation, regardless, it is keen to understand that the conditional element exist. Furthermore, in the study of male and female interaction, it would be fortuitous to note that this the primary explanation why males are instructed to not show up to a date exactly on time, mainly to grant the females a few extra minutes to ready themselves.
Interestingly, I actually did not come up with this as a post topic on my own. Most of the time I’m actually not waiting for my wife and on occasion, such as by last week’s kiddish, she was waiting for me! :-o I guess like everything else in marriage, you kind of figure out what works for you. However, the inspiration for this post was a conversation that my wife had with her friend that implicated that all women understand this implicit time system and basically most women abide by it; yet, men are dumbfounded by it. Correct me if I am wrong, I believe such a proposition to be fascinating. In that case, perhaps I need a new wristwatch… ;-)
