Men Likes to be in Control

Following the post from NyonyaPenang I was reminded about this conversation I had with a friend (M) from church. This friend volunteers as a musician while my hubby (H) volunteers as a Sunday School Teacher. We were just talking about how difficult it is to recruit new volunteers for both musicians and teachers.

Me - Look at the sunday school teachers la, year in year out same people but the number of children increasing all the time

H - Eh hem..

Me - H has to be teaching every alternate week due to the shortage

M - Same here

Me - Ya I noticed that too..pity you guys man

M - But then, did you notice that there is an over flowing of volunteers for traffic control?

Me - Huh? Oh ya hor..Ya man, this job is more difficult leh, have to come early and stand in the hot sun summore..

M - Ah...do you know why there are so many volunteers, and they are only men summore?

Me - Why ah??

M - That's because men generally likes to be in control, and this is one of the jobs that allow them to be in full control

Me - ? ? (very interested sitted on the edge of the seat)

M - Maybe they didn't have chance to command control in either their work place or at home, but here as traffic controller can control wor..(pheeettttttttttttt...pheeeeeeeeeettttttttttt -blowing whistle action with sound effect and waving his hands like a traffic police + a very stern look)

Me & H - wuahahahahahahaha....ya man! So true!!

pssst..M is also a guy leh..

So, this is some sort of a way for release for the guy, so as for the guy mentioned in NyonyaPenang's post, it's the same situation la!
