Agricola does NOT help you find a sex partner!

I should know, I am married and my wife wouldn't even LET me go out to any good Los Angeles nightclubs and pick up ANY beautiful women by showing off how cleverly I could place my fence parts. I even was going to bake some bread!

Now either my wife was very selfish, or Agricola...does not get you laid!

Agricola does NOT cook you breakfast!

I waited until 2:30 pm! Snuggled up in bed. No smell of bacon! No Egg sizzling sound in my house. No sheep kabobs on the grill. Nothing.

Either Agricola knows I need to lose a few pounds and was trying to watch my manly figure, or Agricola...does not make you breakfast! Not even toast!

Agricola does NOT write your late business reports!

I tried everything! I actually put the farmers ON my laptop keyboard. I went away, thinking maybe they needed privacy. Illiterate little agrarian Bolsheviks! Nothing. Not one assessment completed. NO pages typed. Nothing.

Either Agricola was waiting for a better contract, or Agricola...does not write your late work assignments.

Other things Agricola will NOT do for you!

1) Pick up your clothes at the dry cleaner.
2) Walk your dog.
3) Bring over a nice six pack of I.P.A.
4) Smooth out an argument with your brother.
5) Pay ANY of your mortgage.
6) Withdraw from the primary without making a big hoo hah about it.
7) Chase gophers out of your garden.
8) Stay up and watch Battlestar Galactica with you because your wife was tired and made you turn the tv down so low, whats the point of watching anyway! Who paid for this new flat screen anyway? Not HER! Or Agricola for that matter.
9) Agricola just stares at you and wont say anything when you make a geeklist about it. Petulant farm game!
10) Agricola does not double on sax.
