    support your woman

    Working Woman

    It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes
    harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they
    were younger.

    When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are over sensitive, and
    there's nothing worse than an over sensitive woman.

    My name is Bert. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife,

    Since I retired several years ago, it has become necessary for Jeannie to
    get a full-time job along with her part-time job, both for extra income and
    for the health insurance benefits that we needed.

    Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her
    age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home
    from work.

    Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest
    for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her.

    Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets
    dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club
    so eating out is costly and not reasonable and I'm ready for some
    home-cooked grub when I hit that door.

    She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not
    unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do
    what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that
    they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does
    seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

    Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think. For example she will say
    that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during
    her lunch hour.

    But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer
    encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two or even three days.
    That way she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing
    lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I
    mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

    When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods.
    She had to take a break when she was only half finished mowing the lawn. I
    try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice,
    big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just
    sit for a while and, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as
    well make one for me too.

    I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Jeannie. I'm
    not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find
    it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows
    better than I do how frustrated women get, as they get older.

    However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less
    criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that
    writing this was well worthwhile.

    After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

    Sincerely, Bert


    Bert died suddenly on March 1 of a perforated rectum. The police report says
    he was found with a Calloway extra long 50-inch Big Bertha
    Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip
    showing and a sledge hammer laying nearby.

    His wife Jeannie was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury
    took only 15 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that Bert
    somehow, accidentally sat down on his golf club.
    If con is the opposite of pro
    is congress the opposite of progress?
