Efficiency

An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. "You don't want to try these techniques at home."

"Why not?" asked somebody from the audience.

"I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained.

"She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Hon, why don't you try carrying several things at once?'"

"Did it save time?" the person in the audience asked.

"Actually, yes," replied the expert. "It used to take her 20 minutes to make breakfast. Now I do it in seven."

  2. LOL
    That's one of the reasons I think that nobody should be allowed at the kitchen besides the person who is cooking.

  3. My husband is an engineer and spends his day trying to "fix" processes.

    We have had several conversations that end this way.

    So this one is funny, but hits a little close to home.

  7. True story;
    When we were newlyweds, I decided to fix breakfast for my bride. There was something that was not cooked exactly to her liking and she and commented. The next sound she heard was the garbage disposal devouring her breakfast. Just sayin'
    Of course that was 35 years ago and we're still havin' fun.

  17. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying! Hubby loved it. He is a smart fella. Picture this: He is 6'5". I am 5'6'. He only complained ONCE (years ago) about dust on top of the fridge. You can imagine the outcome of that one...

    Big hugs, honey...

  25. Ha ha, but I look for ANY excuse to get someone else to do the cooking!

  26. This is when silence would have been golden.

  27. HA. Boy does that sum up the husband and wife relationship. I have learned a long time ago, it is best to keep your mouth shut, or risk it being inserted somewhere you wouldn't want it. And by supposedly the fairer sex. As usual, another smile from Sandee. GREAT BIG HUG

  28. I told Mrs. Jim of a person I read about a newly retired man who organized his wife's kitchen the first week of his retirement. Mrs. Jim told me ... (that it wasn't for her).

  29. hahaha, when my husband is in the kitchen, he is in charge or else he wouldn't cook :-).

  30. A good one! And he was fair enough to warn his audience. ;)
    I don't know any woman who wouldn't do it the same way as his wife.^^
