2012 Toyota Prius C: The Least Manliest

May 28, 2013

2012 Toyota Prius C

I received an email this morning titled, "The Least Manliest Thing I Hope to Ever Ask of You." It had to do with our long-term 2012 Toyota Prius C. Here's what it said...

2012 Toyota Prius C

"I think I left the wife's new box of detergent in the Prius C, rear seat floor area. I am slightly in the doghouse because of it. If it's in the Prius C, can I hassle you to slide it inconspicuously under my desk, however inconspicuous one can be with a lime green and orange box of detergent?"

If nothing else, my job can be pretty entertaining.

    Not sure why jriz was embarrassed. Yes I'm calling him out, guys like clean dishes too.

    I was totally thinking it was a jriz comment too.

  • Isn't Gain laundry detergent?

    "The wife's new box of detergent"? Good grief, least manliest or most misogynistic?

    Not even close to a non-manly thing. However, I am a man who can stand in line at the store with a box of tampons/incontinence supplies/ladies' hosiery with no sign of embarrassment. As a result my "non-manly" threshold is way higher than most.
