Wifely quotes - collected over the years

As the computer boots up: "I knew you'd been downloading porn."


"Well, it starts off with an ad or something for motherboards. So I know what you've been into."

After answering the doorbell one Saturday afternoon, then screaming, running into the family room with angry eyes, clad in an old pink chenille dressing gown: "You go. It's the police… they want…"

"What do they want?"

"I don't know. They're from the blasted fashion division."

Having spent many hours planning the seating for an important dinner, the stress of two late acceptances was volcanic. After staring at the plan, then out the window at length, a maniacal grin appeared, all the place names were gathered together, then thrown high in the air. "Let the cards fall where they will." Problem solved.

When asked by a friend to pay $100 each for tickets to a charity ball, her reply? "Sorry, no can do. These days we're living on the smell of an oily shoe-string."

Visiting again, six months after having given a clothes dryer to his mother for her birthday, our eldest says: "How's the clothes dryer going?"

"OH, I haven't used it yet."

"Why not?"

"I'm saving it for a rainy day."

"But it's raining today, and you've just put the washing on the line."

"The rainy day I'm talking about is when I can't get out to the line. But thanks for thinking of my old age." (Her 70th was next week)

She applied for a position as a counselor at a major school. When she returned from the interview, I asked "Well, did you get it?"

"Yeah, I reckon so. Counseled the principal for 45 minutes, gave her a bill for $90, and she paid. She's that dumb. The kids won't be as easy."

After several hours of spontaneous observations, all to the point and mostly acidic, I said "Living with you is better than going to the comedy festival."

She colored slightly, then replied "I knew you'd married me for my levity."

That was not the only thing, of course.

A bachelor who lived at home with his mother and pet cat went on a trip to Europe.

Before he left he told his best friend to inform him of any emergencies.

A few days after his departure, his cat climbed up on the roof, fell off and was killed. His friend immediately wired him with the message: "Your cat died!"

In a few hours he was back home, having cut short his trip in grief and anger at his friend, whom he told "Why didn't you break the news to me gradually? You know how close I was to my cat! You could have sent a message 'Your cat climbed up on the roof today', and the next day you could've written, 'Your cat fell off the roof' and let me down slowly that he died."

After a quick memorial service, the bachelor left again to continue his trip. A few days later he returned to his hotel and there was a message waiting for him from his friend. It read, "Your mother climbed up on the roof today."
