What Are Man Points?
Good question. Let me award you your first Man Point for asking. Let me then tell you that I’m sorry, but answering that question would be a severe loss of my Man Points.
With that in mind, I’ll give a few examples of how Man Points can be gained or lost* and let you figure it out from there. That’s the fun in life anyway — figuring it out on your own. As a man you already know that.
Ways to Get Man Points:
Catching a drink that has fallen off the table.
Not using directions.
Using the phrase, “I think I know what I’m doing.”
Not wearing a jacket.
Being sneaky for any reason.
Ways to Lose Man Points:
Lighting a cigarette on the wrong end.
Locking someone else’s keys in their car.
Keeping track of Man Points.
Using the phrase, “I wasn’t crying.”
Calling your girlfriend/wife.
*Note: At any time Man Points may be retroactively gained or lost and may be done so with a multiplicative modifier depending on the circumstances. Here’s an example.
Dancing – definite loss of Man Points.
Riverdancing on a table – negotiable gain of Man Points.
Spilling a woman’s drink while riverdancing on a table – loss of Man Points with multiplier.
Offering to hold the woman’s spilled on belongings in your Man Bag – gain of Man Points with multiplier.
Holding an ugly woman’s belongings in your Man Bag – loss of all Man Points.
