One of the young men I work with comes into work looking pretty tired and when I inquired why he's not getting much sleep and explained they have a new born baby boy. My second question, when hearing that from young married guys is, "Does your wife work outside the home?" In this case it was "No". Interesting!
I just learned this week that he let the boss know that this week will be his last week because his wife wants to move to New Mexico. When talking to him I discovered that they've only talked about it for a few weeks but she wants to move. I asked him if he had a job lined up and he said, "No". Interesting!
Yesterday we were eating lunch in our lunch room and out of the blue he asked, "Who packs your lunch?" I replied, "My wife." His reply was, "My wife tells me if you want a lunch pack it yourself." Other men in the room chuckled about that because they've heard that before too. He asked how I got my wife to pack my lunch and I replied, "Well I have my job and she has hers and part of her job is to pack my lunch." A few of the older guys laughed and replied, "How long did it take you to train her to do that?" I so wanted to say, "You'd be surprise what a good spanking does in training your wife", but I didn't. The funny thing is that it didn't really take any training. For one my wife is mature enough to realize that I work a full day and come home and work some more. She is a stay at home mom and feels it's her job to take care of things around the house. One of those things is fixing my lunch. It didn't really take any training. And for us it's a no brainer.
The young man in the story is 24 years old and has only been married a few years. I wish him luck in his life but right now he's carrying all the load from what I can tell.
