Don't Anyone Go Getting Mad, Now

Mom sent me this in an email, and it just tickled my funnybone.


Minnesota Women

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.

The first man had married a woman from Iowa. He told her that she was going to do dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple days, but on the third day he came home to a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from California. He had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a woman from Minnesota. He told her that in addition to being half-contributor to the two-income family, her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed,laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. The first day he couldn't see anything, and the second day he couldn't see anything. By the third day some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, enough to fix himself a bite to eat and load the dishwasher.........................

Now that's what I'm talking about!! Minnesota women are the best!!

*grin* Thing is, I think that this same damned thing could be said about SOME women from each & every state in the nation. I know at least a couple of other Alaskan girls (already figuring myself) that'd do the same damned thing if given that kind of speach by the hubby. *wink*
