I was getting coffee earlier this week, and on the TV some folks were watching this woman explain how she had been "abducted by aliens for several hours" one night.
And it occurred to me:
If a woman is gone all night, and when she returns she says to her husband or boyfriend that she was abducted by aliens, you can expect the man to be sympathetic, and at least to hear her out.
If a man is gone all night, and when he returns he says to his wife or girlfriend that he was abducted by aliens, you can expect the man to get physically attacked twice. Once for being gone all night, and the second time for not having a better excuse!
