Were You Speaking to Me, Honey?

Opening myself up to horrendous comments from Jody's women readers:

Men who are accused of never listening by women now have an excuse -- women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to than other men's, a report said.

Men deciphered female voices using the auditory part of the brain that processes music, while male voices engaged a simpler mechanism, it said.

I wonder if this is the reason for "honeydo" notes?

Hat tip to The Pirate, guest posting at Little Miss Attila

Update: This is probably a good place for this:

A Macedonian man left his wife at an Italian service station and only realized he had driven off without her six hours later, news agency Ansa said.

Not, not, not good.

I wonder how much THIS study cost us? We needed a study to tell us that men (and probably women, honestly) pay more attention to deeper, baritone voices and tend to ignore or "tune out" higher ones? Sorry, but this one comes as no surprise to me but then, as someone with a very feminine voice, I've spent many meetings being "talked over" by men. As with most "handicaps" in life, you learn to compensate.
