Though assembling furniture is stereotypically a man's job, according to Ikea's German chief, Petra Hesser, women are actually better at putting together the company's flat-pack furniture. "Men never look at the directions and have the most problems with construction because they always think they can do that," said Hesser. "The woman first sorts the parts in an orderly way. Men throw them in a pile and then something goes missing." [Daily Express]

We always put shit together. One of us will get really offended if the other puts something together without the other there. I'm kinda a man I guess in the sense I glance over the instructions and then will go at it without always checking the directions. This has resulted in me putting together something upside down and then having to change it after I finished the project and see that it doesn't look right.
