    OH, Ralph, you sneaky smartie, you!

    MUCH more than I’ve come to expect from him. This may call for a re-evaluation!

    I used to tell my wife that we needed to leave 1/2 hour ahead of time. That way we left on time.

    Hofstadter’s Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s Law.

    She also needs to put her apron back on.

    You mean I DIDN’T invent this tactic? :) I learned this very early in life and had plenty of occasion to use it with my mother and grandmother long before I even got married! Never, EVER tell a woman the “real” time you need to leave for somewhere. You will NEVER leave on time if you do.

    Holy shamoley, I hadn’t noticed she wasn’t wearing it! Great catch!

    Now, if Ralph wants to stay smart, he won’t mention the actual departure time!

    As if her hair has EVER looked any different than it is.

    In our case it’s always my husband, not me who makes us late. I’m the one who’s ready waiting for him to finish! And it’s like this with my brother too. After he was grown and had moved out my mother would invite him for dinner but he’d always be an hour late. I told her to tell him an hour earlier than we actually planned to eat but she never did so.

    I have to do this with my hubby, he’s always the one running late. He caused our son and his girlfriend to miss their bus back to college because he just knew he had enough time to play one last video game with him – baseball! We got there in time to see the bus pull off and had to scramble to make other arrangements because they had an exam that Monday!

    Aaaaaaand THAT’S how the man (?) of the house has to play it. Nice move, Ralph.

    Before my wedding, we gave my in-laws a time 30 minutes early, because we know they’re always late. They found out the day before and got very mad at us for not trusting them. Then they arrived 30 minutes late anyway.

    If I didn’t find it funny, I’d want to scream.
