Ned: That's it, honey... I'm done! Now I can stay home and micromanage whatever it is you do all day! The Shortest Retirement in History.
“I swear officer my husband came home form the office, slipped on the freshly waxed kitchen floor and BAM, fell right down the basement steps, and landed on that chainsaw I was repairing.”
“Honest that’s EXACTLY how it happened.”
No jury would ever convict her.
Maybe she’ll be kind and just bludgeon him with the vacuum now.
“I married you for better or for worse - but not for lunch!”
This is why there’s greeters in Wal-Mart…
I know a couple of retirees who had to go back to work after rearranging the kitchen cupboards “rationally”…
And one who went back to building houses after the wife got to feeling better from her arthritis and started a quilting club; he was driven out by the constant chatter…
@ ejcapulet that’s just what I was thinking. ;)
“whatever you do all day…”?! Huh-oh, this is not going to end well, that is for sure.
He should have kept his retirement secret and gone golfing every day.
there are certain things you do not say when someone has sharp or blunt objects in their grasp….
That man who is happily retired just got home but he has to find part time job to earn more cents than his retirement pension that will not enough for his cost of living tho’.
I’ve got an idea. Check out Bozo http://www.gocomics.com/bozo/2009/06/16/
Right sensrule92: the result will be somewhere between a rancourous divorce (in her favour where she’ll get house, car, moneys,…and he gets diddly-squat) and his pushing-up weeds.
Furienna said, That poor stupid man…
exactly, the next frame is her giving him a list, today polish silver, tomorrow fix leaky faucet in bath, next day……
durtclaw, that is brilliant!
This strip today made me happy, great job Wiley!
That man is suicidal!
As long as Starbucks has WiFi I will never retire.
And this is why men die before women…..
I agree with the folks who think a to-do list for him is in order. Good luck, openminded!
Hey, this IS my husband!!! The one who now finally has the time to teach me after 42 years, to cook, wash dishes, clean thehouse, train my 12 year old perfectly behaved dog, and follow me around the kitchen, correcting every thing I do, like turning off the stove before I am finished, turning off the tap for me, before I’m finished. Rtirement has made him an expert in nutrition, cooking, gardening. Without ever openign a book! He just watches tv!
With no wife (and 7 months to the BIG EVENT) I’ll be micromanaging ME!
