Read the Directions: A Man\'s Dilemma

Suddenly, I would find myself working feverishly to clean the oven, but I don't remember being told to do it. What is happening to me? I have even 'woken up' while I am in the middle of cooking dinner! I am worried that I am going crazy!

I remembered the day that my most powerful tool came and I thought that all would be great! I would just point and click and my woman would 'mute' or 'remove clothing', but it didn't work. I need to return that thing and get my money back!

I am beginning to think that my woman is the one with the power here. I not only have lapses of memory but seem at times to suddenly want to take my clothes off. I don't know where those thoughts are coming from!

I do wish that my remote control would have worked. If only my wife wouldn't have seen me with it!

Wait!

I have to go and take out the trash!

Kat, the wife here, and I need to let you all in on a little secret! I took that remote from my husband. Then I went and read the directions! Yup, novel idea isn't it? I have found the directions very useful.

Now, don't think badly of me, but I turned the tables on Pat! He now says 'yes', but only when I want him to! He also will cook and clean! All I have to do is point the remote and press the button!

If he had read the directions, he would have known the remote needed 'charging' first! While he handled the remote, he was actually causing it to be activated for use on him.

That is great news for me! Now he does the dishes, cooks, cleans and I can also speed him up with the fast forward button!

If only he knew how to read the directions! I have told him time and time again! Read the directions, first. It works better that way and we won't have a fight while you put that Total Gym together. Does he listen to me? NO! Well he listens now!

Oh and I just wanted to mention the 'forget' button. It is not needed for my man. He forgets so easily. He has probably forgotten all about that remote. Which is great news for me. I now have time to write my novel while my hubby is off cleaning the house, making the bed, vacuuming and all those other chores that I used to do.

I have to go now! My hubby is back from taking out the trash!
