Something to Ponder !



A man came home from work and found his 5 children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found even bigger mess.  


A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.


He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. 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 to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel... She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went.


He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?'


She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?...


''Yes," was his incredulous reply..


She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

This is why, I assert, every household needs a Mexican. Illegals should be given priority to citizenship and free welfare benefits and medicare from the government, they are doing a job nobody really wants to do. Added benefit, the kids will learn Spanish which will make them lucrative in the work force.

I wasn't lecturing you. My buddy DM isn't around, so I thought I'd substitute for him and give you a hard time. Nothing serious.

I like Faramarz's idea, by the way.

Faramarz's idea only applies to a trophy wife and sugar daddy ... not all the women !




Just get a maid, a nanny and a gardener. Then head to the spa and get yourself ready for your man!

The blog is true. Running a household with kids is not easy. Same goes for stay at home fathers. It's like that saying; "it's because of kids that we can't have nice things like nice furniture!". Kids are like a demolition machine operating all day!

Please do not lecture me on something being sexist before you look further into the root of the problem which has been clearly stated in this blog. Women, in the west, who have chosen to stay at home and raise a family or even those in the third world who are in it with no choice are actually doing the toughest and yet the most unappreciated job ever. People who undermine this job and think a full time job only applies to something else are ignorant and fool. This story demonstrates that not only being an stay home mom is a job but it is a job with no break and no appreciation. I am discussing the nature of this job not the Sex here. This can be true for the stay home dads ( on the rise in the west) and not mention the humiliation these stay home dad's feel or receive for choosing this job. No job on earth is more in need of a labor union than this job and yet there exist none. No other job on earth is an important as this and in need of more appreciation and yet there exist None.

This is a sexist attitude towards women's role in the family and society.
