I’m not really sure that this is a Cafe Society question, but it has to do with a commercial, so here goes:
There’s this mouthpiece thing that’s supposed to cure snoring by holding the jaw forward while the snorer sleeps. There’s a TV ad for it. Fine.
The thing is the ad shows that the snorer is invariably male. And that his snoring wakes his wife (or girlfriend, whatever) and she sends him to sleep on the couch.
Hubby then makes annoyed frowny face, but dutifully goes off to the couch.
Now, first of all, why are the snorers in this commercial all men? Women do snore, I know. I am a snorer.
And secondly, why does the commercial portray all the women as queen bitches who wake the men up and kick them out of bed? If I was married to a snorer, and his snoring was keeping me awake, I would get out of bed and go to the couch myself. Granted, I might try to convince my husband to get help for his snoring, but no way would I wake him up and throw him out of the bedroom. To me, that would be selfish.
Or am I just a doormat?
