That, my friends,
is
 Globalization !


And this is the giggle of the day!

Housework was a woman's job, but one evening, Janice arrived home from work to find the children bathed, one load of laundry in the washer and another in the dryer. Dinner was on the stove and the table set. She was astonished!

It turns out that Chuck had read an article that said, 'Wives who work full-time and had to do their own housework were too tired to have sex'.

The night went very well. The next day, Janice told her Red Hat friends all about it. 'We had a great dinner. Chuck even cleaned up the kitchen. He helped the kids do their homework, folded all the laundry and put it away. I really enjoyed the evening.'

'But what about afterward?' asked her friends.

'Oh, that. Chuck was too tired.'

On Princess Di's wedding, I went to my friend's place to watch TV. I was late for work (telecast was in the early morning in New Zealand.) I told my boss, my car broke down. He sniggered, all the cars of the NZ women broke down including his wife's.

I really like the explanation og Globalization, and the housework joke was great!

Globalization is very interesting. The housework part made me chuckle:)

Kay said...

These were great, Sylvia. That certainly would be globalization and the Tired Housewife thing is definitely a hoot! Loved it.

Moral of the second story don't do house work .

Serline said...

Good to see that Singapore featured in your Globalization illustration, although you left out the teenie weenie detail that the Bangladeshi workers were trafficked through Thailand ;-P

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
