Kiwi women? where are they?
 
This is my personal experience...
On a hot sunny Sunday afro (today) this is what my neighbours are doing.

One is out side building a huge retaining fence, which he has been doing solo for about 4 weeks.
One is building a patio out the frount, also by himself.
One has just single handedly finished decorating and renovating the kitchen...

Good on these Kiwi blokes.

My piont is...where are the wives don't they help?

When we "as a couple" undertake DIY projects whether it building fences or decorating or building decks I'm always expected to help...

What are the women doing?

Or is it ...where did I go wrong?

Anyone else notice this?

I think they are all out shopping. :rofl:

Yes, I to do my bit and help out and supervise the proceedings, only to make sure that the job gets done to my specifications and standard of workmanship. :rofl:.

They're all having coffee... a national obsession with the ladies.

This could be it....the men are snoozing... the women are dressed up like men doing the manual stuff. Sounds more logical.:thumbsup:

I think more that anything, Kiwi females should be praised for their independance of spirit...blah blah blah first country to give women the vote...blah blah blah....first country to have females holding all the major positions of power....blah blah blah......first country to have 'female chauvinist pigs'....

or should that be 'sows'?

Well...I think it has to be said that NZ has a weird kind of female chauvinism that seems to be a bit out of hand.

Even as a married bloke, there are a lot (a higher majority) of ugly women in NZ.
