Domestic Engineering can be a pretty thankless job. Just ask any homemaker. It can be particularly thankless when the family is running around getting ready for Mass and the devoted wife hears her loving husband grumbling over a pair of socks.
He asks, "Who folds these sock?"
Dutiful wife answers, "Why, I do."
"You'd think you'd notice they are two different colors and are two completely different socks," he complains.
Adoring wife then decides she will show him. She doesn't fold his socks for a week. He'll thank her next time for the mismatched socks.
Funny, this strategy comes back to bite her in the . . . Every morning, for a week, thankless husband turns the bedroom light on at 6:00 a.m. to dig through his drawers and the laundry basket, looking for his socks. Vengeful wife is usually still sleeping at 6:00 a.m.
Revenge is not so sweet, after all.
