20 Tweets That Perfectly Capture The Struggles of Having a Husband Who’s Got the Man Flu

By Nina / mardi 26 septembre 2017 06:30
Autumn has officially arrived. The season of falling leaves, brisk breezes, pumpkin spice what-have-yous, and the first wave of the common cold, aka the Man Flu. These tweets prove that the real victim of the man flu isn’t the sickly man, but the woman taking care of him.

Being sick is never a bowl of petunias, but apparently it’s worse for some than others.

The phenomenon known as Man Flu occurs when a man has a cold. In fact it’s exactly that. A cold. The difference is that when a man contracts a man flu, he loses all capacity to take care of himself and relies on the help of his significant other to keep him alive because he literally believes he is dying. No exaggeration.

The following tweets come from women who have had firsthand experience caring for these dying men and show that the Man Flu is so much more of an FML for them than it is for their husbands.

1. Not going down together.

2. That is clearly the more pressing issue at hand.

3. A human person is literally about to come out of me...are you for real?

4. "Remember that time I almost died?"

5. Tell my mother I love her.

6. "Now, class, here we have a classic case of man flu"

7. My bedside manner is beginning to waver.

8. You heard me.

9. It can strike at any age.

10. Running out of diapers for this big baby.

11. He could really use some right about now.

12. Where did they go?!

13. When your husband begins to sound like a 13-year-old girl.

14. See you on the other side.

15. R.I.P.

16. But, I mean, what's the difference?

17. Alert the media!

18. Looks like we're all set.

19. Never a bad excuse for cozy drinking.

20. Seems about right.

living with my mom and sister for years taught me that women just handle being sick better. I guess guys acting manly all the time means when we are sick we get to take a little break and complain and be pampered for once

Just sounds like a bunch of ungrateful uncaring women. When my wife gets sick I take care of her and don't complain that she's sick. Then again she doesn't whine when I get sick either.

This Manflu garbage is so f***ing stupid. So glad my wife doesn't go behind my back and trivialize my sicknesses while poking fun at me for being miserable. I dunno why I didn't expect FML to be like every other stupid bandwagon social media site and hop on this retarded bandwagon.
