It's not all that often a wife will confess her faults. Just the other
nite my wife said, "Hon, I know I'm not the perfect wife. I realize
I'm often too outspoken."
Risking all manner of flying objects, I couldn't resist the temptation
and calmly replied, "Oh, by whom dear ?"
Try as I might though, I just can't seem to win many points with my
wife. Just the other day she was reminding me of how often she had to
ask for my help with our kids. Then she pointed out that the youngest
had moved out over eight years ago. I smiled and said "OK, what would
you like me to do next ?" Again -- nothing but cold icy silence. I
just don't understand that woman at all.
Nearly everyone knows that Judith Martin, better known as
Miss Manners, the syndicated columnist, is exceedingly correct.
Last week, she saw an advertisement in the newspaper that a
Maryland jewelry store was having a sale in her silver pattern.
Upon arriving at the store, she told the jeweler she was
looking for additional dessert spoons in her pattern and had
been making do with the larger soup spoons.
"That's not much of a hardship," the employee said. "It is
for me," Martin responded. Caught up in the moment, the
saleswoman joked, "Who do you think you are, Miss Manners?"
The easily recognizable Miss Manners looked at the woman,
unable to respond. And then it registered. "Oh my God!"
the saleswoman said.
