Husband Pleases Wife
Mary was married to a something of a chauvinist. They both
worked full time, but he never did anything around the house
and certainly....not any housework. That, he declared, was
One evening Mary arrived home from work to find the children
bathed, a load of wash in the washing machine and another in
the dryer, dinner on the stove and a beautifully set table,
complete with flowers. She was astonished, and she immediately
wanted to know what was going on.
It turned out that her husband Charley had read a magazine
article that suggested working wives would be more
romantically inclined if they weren't so tired from having
to do all the housework in addition to holding down a full-
time job. The next day, she couldn't wait to tell her friends
in the office. "How did it work out?" they asked.
"Well, it was a great dinner," Mary said. "Charley even
cleaned up, helped the kids with their homework, folded the
laundry and put everything away."
"But what about afterward?" her friends wanted to know.
"Oh, that part didn't work out," Mary said. "Charley was too tired."
