    She definitely needs a sympathetic face.

    A dated strip, that’s for sure. It would fit back in the 1960s. When I was in college in the 1990s, most guys had started their working careers in restaurants, and most of the girls couldn’t cook.

    Hey John! Bread, slice of meat, slice of cheese, mustard, then bread again. Put the whole thing in a little [plastic bag. Lunch by the numbers.

    A grown man should know how to make a sandwich and grab an apple. Besides, I’m sure there are restaurants around. You’re just whining.

    I think he knows how to make a lunch — he just doesn’t like doing it. Get used to getting up a few minutes earlier, John. It’s not that big a deal.

    Jean keeps John real. I wish she’d work a little harder at it….that, or that it would sink in more on John’s end.

    Since Ellie does not have to leave till 8:30, she has no excuse not to pack John’s lunch.
    If not, shouldn’t this be part of Jean’s job description, to have to pack and bring in her boss’s lunch?

    8:30 are you kidding me, I’ve been at work for an hour and a half, my wife for two and a half hours. She hasn’t made my lunch in the last 35 years.

    A man who pulls teeth and does root canals for a living complaining because his little wifey was too busy to make his lunch? What a big baby. Grow a pair John and make your own lunch! Or eat out, dentists can afford it.

    An thoughtful spouse will warn the other spouse in advance of pending changes to established routines; it’s worked for 42 years.

    No excuse? How about getting two small children ready to leave the house for day care?

    I am so glad my husband is nothing like John. Don’t know how or why Elly puts up with him….Jean is the one to put him in his place – the pretend helpless male and a male chauvinist. He knows how to make sandwiches and doesn’t need Elly to make them for him – he just liked the idea of having a wife doing things for him and doesn’t like the changes. You can’t have it both ways – Elly bringing money home AND continue doing things for you as before. You gotta pick one and I bet you like the money better.
