Nothing Works

I was enjoying the second week of a two-week vacation the same way I had enjoyed the first week: by doing as little as possible. I ignored my wife's not-so-subtle hints about completing certain jobs around the house.

I didn't realize how much this bothered her until the clothes dryer refused to work, the iron shorted and the sewing machine motor burned out in the middle of a seam. The final straw came when she plugged in the vacuum cleaner and nothing happened.

She looked so stricken that I had to offer some consolation.

"That's okay, honey," I said. "You still have me."

She looked up at me with tears in her eyes. "Yes," she wailed, "but you don't work either!"

  3. I think most women would say men don't work. Oh well that's life. Ha,ha,ha, Have a great day Stupendous, Sandee. I hope you get some rain soon because we have been getting a little rain each day for the last 7 days. See ya.

  6. Oh boy! Sounds likes she might have been happier at work rather than at home on vacation. Might have been less stress ... and it often is. :)
