I was having a conversation today with Zack and Dave on how women sometimes had a need to be validated. Perplexity covered their faces, so I proceeded to list off some helpful comments they could use to validate their wife, when she was trying to tell how her day went I carefully pointed out that guys just wanted to fix things and we found that annoying. Zack dutifully said he would make a note of those things. Dave asked, "If you don't want us to fix it, why are you telling us?" Never mind. I'll just call Joyce when I need to be validated. Sheesh!
