When You Get The Flu Vs. When He Gets The Flu (GIFs)

You and your man might as well be from different planets when it comes to how you deal with the flu.

Not only have we heard that this year’s flu shot might not be that effective, but the virus going around right before the holidays is one of the most serious strains out there. Perfect.

At least the men in our lives are around to take care of us.

Yeah. Sure. In Utopia, maybe. Ladies, let’s face it. Men can be babies when they’re sick. So can women, true, but most of the time we’re the ones holding down the fort while the guys take care of #1 (sorry, guys, we know there are exceptions out there — and are you single?).

We hope this makes you laugh through all the misery.

1. When you find out you have the flu you plot ways to work through it.

3. You bring him tissues, flu meds and chicken soup, ignoring all the symptoms that you’re getting the flu, too.

4. He seems grateful, but still treats you like his nurse.

5. You start to wonder if he remembers you clearly have the flu too — the very same virus that’s taken him down and left him for dead.

9. You finally break down in between dropping off the kids, going to work and running errands, because you’re tired of pretending you aren’t sick.

10. He’s still sleeping. Snoring, even. It makes you want to throw up.

11. You throw up.

12. He wakes up looking hella better than six hours ago — or than you will for roughly 15 days.

13. He finally asks if you’re OK and rubs your back for 10 seconds.

14. Success! Wait, where did he go? And are those chills I feel again? Collapsing… now.
