Have you ever stopped to wonder, what does your wife do all day?
It might seem that your wife and the mother of your children spends most of the day idle, unless she has a job and is working of course.
However, while it might be true in some cases, this is (I am sure) definitely not the rule as this husband found out the hard way.
One day, Bob came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud.
He gathered them together and went to hustle them into the house when he noticed that there were empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.
Then he saw that the door of his wife’s car was wide open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog, who would usually be there to welcome him when he came home from work.
Walking into the hallway, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was wedged up against one wall and there was even more mess on the floor.
In the front room, the television was loudly blaring with the cartoon channel on.
The family room was yet another disaster area, the floor strewn with toys and various items of clothing and the couches looking like a bomb had hit.
When he went into the kitchen, instead of a nice tidy counter top and clean sink, he found the sink full of dishes. Breakfast food was spilled on the counter top and the fridge door was open wide, who knows how long it had been like that!
Dog food was spilled on the kitchen floor, a broken glass lay under the kitchen table and there was a small pile of sand spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys as he went, only to find more piles of clothes.
Worried that his wife might be ill, or that omething serious had happened to her, he started to look for her, heading to the bathroom, where he was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.
As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed into their bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas and she was listening to music while reading a book.
She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day had been.
He looked at her, totally bewildered and asked, “What happened here today?”
She again smiled and answered, “You know dear, every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the hell I do all day?”
“Yes dear”, he replied, with a puzzled look on his face.
His wife answered, “Well, today I didn’t do it!”
