I still don't get it. That's the way it used to be... and women were able to relax all day, maybe do an hour or two of housework... and be done. I'll take that deal any day of the week. 10 hours of housework vs 50 hours of office work + commute time + all the crap guys still did around the house.

I mean great, if you WANT to work... but who the hell wants to work?

dude did you read the article... basically the only thing it left off was when she was supposed to send the children upstairs, unzip dad's pants and give him a good old fashion fluffing before dinner


and to answer vCook's answer, I miss those days too. the days when A man could tell a woman he was putting in her butt, instead of having to beg

<-- Chris

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Did you read his post? Obviously, he prefers a little bit of housework and some fluffing.

I have a little booklet that was published by Good Housekeeping sometime in the sixties. It's all about how women should take care of the house work, kids and their husband. It's unbelievable what they printed. I think I'll scan a few pages every week and post them up for everyones amusement.

So who thinks a woman wrote this?


What I'm sorta surprised about is the fact that this kind of article was written at all. Aren't mothers supposed to teach their daughters this when they are young?

Undetermined

The question here is whether the piece quoted above really came from a home economics textbook. Is it real, or is it yet another of those "look how far we've come" fabrications? We know the graphic reproduced above (supposedly from the 13 May 1955 edition of a magazine called Housekeeping Monthly) is a fabrication: It didn't first appear until well after the "How to Be a Good Wife" list had begun circulating via e-mail, and it's clearly a mock-up produced by adding the text of the e-mail around an image taken from a 1957 cover of John Bull magazine. (The image itself even bears an "Advertising Archives" legend along its side, indicating its source.) As for the text itself, nobody has turned up the infamous textbook that supposedly included these ten steps. The list is often attributed to Helen B. Andelin's book Fascinating Womanhood, first published in 1963 to provide instruction in "The Art of Winning a Man's Complete Love," but no such list appears in that work.

Go for it especially since Snopes has this one as 'undetermined'

Ahhh the good old days. Was it really sooo bad? A man could have job security, work for a company for 25 years and retire peacefully with a gold watch, never having to worry. He would come home to a hot meal at the end of the day to his addoring wife and children and actually relax without his cell phone ringing with some sales guy try to screw up everything he has engineered for the last 3 weeks. or his pager going off at 2am for some jackass looking for directions to a site cause he cant pull his head out of his ass and look at a map. There was no email to have to check constantly for fear of missing that important email that your boss sent out at last minute at 8pm anouncing the meeting at 7am the next morning.

Just go home and relax at the end of the day. Sounds like a dream to me.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
