Stay-at-home-mum Joke

A man arrives home from a hard day at work to find the house in chaos.  The sink's full of dirty dishes, there's damp laundry sitting in the washing machine, the baby's running around crying with a full nappy and the toddler is tossing CDs off the back deck.

His wife is nowhere in sight.  Frantically, fearing something disastrous has happened, he searches the house, and eventually finds her sitting up in bed in her nightie, calmly eating chocolates and watching The Bold and the Beautiful.

'What happened?' he gasps.

The wife turns down the volume with the remote and says, 'You know how you always ask me what I do all day?  Well, today I didn't do it.'

yes... it would be funny Jenny except that very often that is what our house looks like when he walks in at the end of the day - and I really, truly have been hard at work! (boom boom.)Beck
