Do I look like a trash can, to you? Don’t answer that until you’ve heard my side! I often offer Z a stick of chewing gum. He accepts and hands me the wrapper! Excuse me, you have a pocket on your shirt and several pockets in your jeans, can’t you put it in your pocket? Next time I’ll ask, do you want me to chew it for you, too?
Small children will often throw their wrappers on the floor, so mothers take them and put them in their purses to avoid clutter. But that is a child not a seventy year old man! Where do men get off on handing their wives their trash?
We were in church, so I couldn’t say,”I’m not a TRASH CAN!” However, looking back, I should have. Women usually carry large purses to hold THEIR STUFF and not a husbands TRASH! I don’t ask Z to carry my purse, so he shouldn’t hand me his trash. My purse is for my STUFF and not his TRASH!
Yes, it’s way past time to teach these seventy year old men to NOT SUCK EGGS!
P.S. According to GRANDPA’S COUNTRY WISDOM; “Don’t whiz on an electric fence.” According to Down the Drain; “If you give me your trash again, you’ll never get another stick of chewing gum from me.”
