“TWO DIFFICULT THINGS TO ACHIEVE
1. To plant your ideas in someone else’s head.
2. To put someone else’s money in your own pocket.
The one who succeeds in the first one is called a TEACHER.
And the second is called a BUSINESSMAN.
The one who succeeds in both is called a WIFE
The one who fails in both is called a HUSBAND!!!??????”
A joke that got forwarded to me today! And it made me think…
One … a wife and husband become one in marriage so where is the case of your money and my money here? So if a wife takes her husband’s money is it not technically her money too?
Two… A wife is someone who has to change her name to add her husband’s name, I have never seen a husband do it for the sake of a wife. A wife leaves her home to live with her husband and in many cases his family too, at least in most cases. A wife nearly stops spending the money she earns the way she wishes after marriage. And Indian wives, of course, have a whole load of housework to do too. What is the value for all this? A man can never pay enough for all this and yet someone makes jokes like this and laughs at it.
Three … whoever sent this joke, it is their personal opinion and I have nothing to say about it, but I don’t think I would think of them very highly after reading this! Even as a joke…
As for the teacher, the teacher should be one that guides the student to think not push their ideas into someone else’s head!
And the businessman does not put someone else’s money in his pocket, it is his hard earned money doing business, whatever it is!
And what about all those men who get dowry or use up all the money the woman earns… Is he not a husband who walks away with someone else’s money in his pocket? And all those men who push their ideas into their wife’s head and only want her doing what she says…
Sorry, maybe I am taking it a bit too far, but I am not a person to laugh at something silly like this calling it a joke!
