Romantic Comedies and the Like

The other night at work, the males at Borders were discussing the Star Wars light sabers and how 'awesome' they were. One co-worker must have noticed my disinterest by the blank stare I was giving them that these light sabers held no interest for me.

"Sara, does your husband like Star Wars?"

I replied, "My husband likes any movie with a troll, wizard, and/or Jedi."

The co-worker continued, "So, does he go to romantic comedies with you?"

WHAT? Why do men assume that all women like romantic comedies? I don't like romantic comedies. I like mafia movies, period pieces, historical films, documentaries, and some quirky comedies. Not all women are the same. That is a simple concept. I don't want expensive jewelry. I don't get my nails done. I'm a good driver. However, I do really like shoes.
