Husband let out an exasperated sigh last night after managing all of 4 Christmas cards. Mind you that's more than he's managed in previous years.
So for all you hard working ladies out there who are single handedly managing the shopping, cooking, cleaning, carol services, teachers presents, children's stockings, in laws gifts, cards, tree, food etc etc . Here's a joke my lovely friend just sent me. Apologies for the bizarre layout but it's the best I could do by copying and pasting. Enjoy.
Proud to be English!Threemen were sitting together bragging about how theyhad given duties to their newwives.Terry had married a woman fromGreece and bragged thathe had told his wife she needed to do allthe dishes andhousework. Hesaid that it took a couple days but on thethird day he came home to a clean houseand the dishes wereall washedand put away.Jimmie had married a woman fromItaly. He braggedthathe had given his wifeorders that she was to do all thecleaning, dishes, and the cooking. Hetold them that thefirst day hedidn't see any results, but the next day itwas better. By the third day, his housewas clean, thedishes were done,and he had a huge dinner on the table.The thirdman had married an English girl. He boastedthat he told her that her duties were tokeep the housecleaned, disheswashed, laundry and ironing twice a week,lawns mowed, windows cleaned and hotmeals on the table foreverymeal. He said the first day he didn't seeanything, the second day he didn't seeanything, but bythe third daymost of the swelling had gone down and hecould see a little out of his left eye,just enough to fixhimself abite to eat, load the dishwasher, and call ahandyman.
