Debbie’s new husband said, “Honey, now that we’re married mabey you should stop making so many hair appointments.” She said, ”There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-husband.” He said, “I didn’t know you were married before!” She said “I wasn’t.”
Ouch. He had not yet realized who was in charge. You just don’t suggest those things to your lady, even if you are trying to save money for whatever cause. Stop playing golf as often or whatever you spend money on. You’ll be her hero rather than being in the doghouse.
I’ve learned the hard way that saying the wrong thing at the wrong time can have disastrous consequences. I came home one day and found the laundry had not been folded yet. I asked her, “What are you, on strike?” Very bad thing to say. I thought it was funny. I really don’t mind folding all of the laundry now.
I had it coming, but that was 14 years ago. They just don’t forget. Now that I’m at home and she’s working, I really don’t mind doing a lot of household chores so she doesn’t have to after working all day. I iron her clothes every morning, make the coffee, make her lunch and pack everything she’ll need for the day. It’s only fair. Plus it makes her happy. That’s a good thing.
