    Referring the Lone Ranger and Tonto trapped by Indians joke.

    On further thought, maybe Janis is ironically turning the point of the Lone Ranger joke on its head — that is, maybe she’s grumbling that SHE, not Arlo, will inevitably be stuck with the gift-buying chore. (And frankly, why not? She doesn’t have a job, does she? Or a kid at home.)

    Kerumbo: What makes you think that she doesn’t have a job? We know almost as little about that as we know about Arlo’s job. Seems to me that you’re operating under the male chauvinist default mode: If we don’t know, we’ll just assume that she’s just a li’l old housewife.
    By the way, isn’t it Arlo who always does the cooking? So why not assume that he’s the one who stays home?

    Sound familiar.
    Then on the way there I have to ask my wife the names of my first cousins spouses and kids- last names etc.

    Janis does have a job. Remember the inappropriate fax that Arlo sent her 10-15 years ago?

    She used to work for a realtor several years ago. Occasionally Arlo wears a tie and goes to an office, no idea what he does there.

    Janis had a job at one time. I do not know if she still has it. In fact…you do not see much of Arlo’s work life anymore. But yes the reference is to the old Lone Ranger and Tonto joke. Janis is acknowledging that she will likely be the one buying the gift.

    Get them something they will always remember you for: their own copy of Obamacare. Or hate you for.
