Men behaving like babies
Why is it that men behave like babies when sick and how do one handle them?

My Bf went to dentist yesterday. Only did a new tooth fitted over broken one. He was such a baby. Complained about his tooth, jaw, neck, headache, mouth, cheeks etc. Not that I am not insensitive.

I went to dentist a couple of months ago, had root canal done, was in a car accident driving back to work, broke leg on three places, had to cut me out of my car, spent almost two weeks in ICU . Thank you Lord I am almost okay now! But my complains fell on death ears.

Are men just looking for simpathy? Even a common cold turns out to be an storm in a teacup. Drives me CRAZY!!!!
