We came across an amusing article in the latest Austin Monthly Home titled "The Little Things: Women Notice Them. Men Don't". The article, written by J.B. Hager who is also a husband and homeowner, was of the opinion that woman not only notice and care about the small details of the home more than men, but they expect more from inanimate objects than men do. He uses the example of their home's lightswitches to illustrate his point: his wife felt all of the lightswitches in the house should match; he just wanted them to turn lights on and off. Is this writer hitting on a universal truth? Or is he off on his generalization? Weigh in on this polarizing topic after the jump...
