Modern Translation: The Awesome Wife's Guide (Rule #13)

(This is the 14th post of this series. Click here to read the entire series.) 

* Don’t greet him with complaints and problems.

I'm guessing my husband would disagree, but I think I'm pretty good already at following this rule. Correction- I'm better than 60% of wives, which is above average... and I can live with that. 

Since complaints & problems often lead to disagreements & arguments, I'm translating this rule to be about picking and choosing your battles. I'm sort of tired today and not feeling especially witty, so I figured I'd let another wiser & way awesomer <new word alert> blogger teach you a thing or two today about this topic. 

I'm going to safely say that this is the funniest thing I have ever read. Totally worth your time, I promise! (Psst: I probably wouldn't click the link if you are easily offended or disapprove of 4 letter words.)

The Bloggess: And that's why you should learn to pick your battles

Dear 1950's Housewife, 

There are two things I am pretty certain about. 1) You wouldn't have bought the towels and 2) I need a Home Goods store nearby... and a Laura in my life. 

Have a pleasant day, 
The 2010's Housewife


  1. PMSL That is bloody brilliant!

    Now onto the rule. I rarely greet Brian with complaints. If I do it's usually about the kids driving me mad. As I have mentioned before his work is very mentally draining so it's important for him to get stuff off his chest before I have my whinge.
