A woman in my office just finished telling us about how her husband takes out the trash and brings her flowers. I listened and then explained to her that I was going to have to hurt him for breaking the chain.
There is a code of ethics for the married man, a list of things that you do not do.
1) Do not lower the toilet seat, make her take responsibility and look before she sits down.
2) Under no circumstances do you ever give her flowers.
3) Do not take out the trash or respond to other similar requests until you have been asked at least 3 times.
4) Understand that if you break the code other men will come to administer your punishment.
The list is actually much longer than this, but I am too busy to provide it in full. Suffice it to say that if you break the code, you will be punished. And dad gum it, this dude has got to get his. If we don’t jump on this now he’ll mess it up for the rest of us.
