For some people, nothing is ever good enough. After a half-century of marriage, one man began to feel like his wife was not doing enough for him. Her response to him was perfect.
A man who was married for 50 years began having second thoughts. By the time he was in his late 60s, his hard work throughout his life had paid off and he had become a wealthy man with just about everything he wanted. However, he still felt like something was missing.
“Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black-and-white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23-year-old girl every night,” the man told his wife. “Now, I have a $500,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large-screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 69-year-old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”
His wife was not amused by what he had to say and had the perfect response to his complaint.
The man explained: “She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black-and-white TV.”
That just about put it all into perspective for the man.
“Aren’t older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems,” he concluded.
