Jenny was married to a Charlie who was a real male chauvinist.
They both worked full time, but he never did anything around the house and certainly never did any housework.
That, he declared, was woman’s work!
But then one evening, Jenny arrived home from work to find the children had been bathed, a load of laundry was churning away in the washing machine, another load was in the tumble dryer, dinner was on the stove, and the dining room table had been beautifully set, complete with flowers and a bottle of wine.
Jenny was astonished, and she immediately wanted to know what was going on.

“How did it work out?” they asked.
“Well, it was a great dinner, Jenny said. “Charlie even cleaned up. He helped the kids with their homework, folded the laundry and even put everything away afterwards.”

“Oh no, that didn’t work out,” Jenny said. “Charlie was too tired.
