Just Trying to Help
I read about a couple on their way to visit some neighbors. Both were elderly, and the woman walked up the sidewalk ahead of her husband, who was following close behind her.
Just before they rang the door bell, the husband said to his wife, "You may want to pull up your hose."
She immediately turned around and slapped him. Not a hard slap, but a slap that communicated her displeasure.
The shocked husband said, "What did you that for?"
She said, "Because I'm not wearing any hose."
Sometimes, we could use a little more grace in the way we treat each other.
