The psychiatrist told the man that he needed to build his self-esteem.
He gave the man a book on assertiveness, which the man read on the way home.
He had just managed to finish the book by the time he reached his house.
The man stormed into the house and walked up to his wife.
Armed with the advice and the courage that the book had given him, he pointed a finger in his wife’s face and said, “From now on, I want you to know that I am the man of this house and my word is law!”
The man continued…
“I want you to prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I’m finished eating my meal, I expect a sumptuous dessert afterward. Then, after dinner, you’re going to draw me my bath so I can relax. And, when I’m finished with my bath, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?”
“The bloody funeral director”, his wife said.
