The To-Do List

My husband came home after being gone for a week.  Like any good wife, I had a list of things for him to do.

I let him put his things down, use the bathroom, and get a quick bite to eat.  And then I started.

"The new printer doesn't seem to be working.  Can you see what's up with that?  Because I really need to print out some manuscripts."

He looked at me.  "Sure.  It needs new software installed.  I'll work on it in a little while."

"Could you put up the new blinds in the bathroom, too?"

"Sure."

"And could you get me the information for the new schools for the kids, so I can register them?"

He nodded  and went to work.

When he finished with the printer, I went online to do my thing.  But it still didn't work.  "Excuse me," I said.  "We need a 25 digit product key to get this thing to work.  Could you find that for me?"

I guess that was the straw that broke the camel's back.  "Woman, leave me alone!"

I grinned.  "Just doing my job!"
