Marriage – Rule No. 2
If you’ve declared yourself to be a strong and independent woman, don’t go looking for help from your husband
Some time back, I had a heated exchange with my part time cook…She was rude to my daughter which made me go ballistic…I asked her to leave immediately…She got angry and started screaming…I got angry and started screaming…After I ‘threw’ her out, I went to my husband and said:
Me: Why the hell didn’t you intervene?
Husband: Because it was between the two of you
Me: So, it was OK for her to be rude to M?
Husband: I didn’t say that
Me: Aren’t you my husband? Aren’t you supposed to support and protect me?
Husband: Support, yes…Protect, no…I support your decision to fire her but why do I need to protect you? For 9 years you’ve been telling me that men and women are equal and that women can take care of themselves, so where does this business of protecting you come from?
Me: So, if she had hit me, you would have just stood back and watched?
Husband: Yup, I love good catfights – MEOW!
