A Considerate Husband!

Last Saturday afternoon, I was sitting on my garden bench (a cracker day it was, too), drinking an icy cold beer and watching my wife mow the lawn.
Amanda from next door was so upset at this that she came over and shouted "You lazy lout! Sitting there drinking while your poor wife pushes that ancient lawn mower around! Get up off your butt, and give her a break!"

I thought "Gawd! Women!" and I took a slug from my can of beer, wiped the cold foam from my lips, lifted my darkened Ray Ban's, stared directly at this nosey neighbour, and told her in no uncertain terms to "mind her own business. My wife has a green thumb, and she really enjoys gardening".

After a few days I felt really bad so I went out and bought her a ride-on mower to show my sensitive side. I am so proud of the deal I got. I am also proud that my wife can now sit down while mowing the lawn. I have attached a picture.
