I still remember a couple who owned a gas station at a town just out of the city here, I still remember their names, she was a lovely lady, but I've never met someone so shy, he was also a bit shy but you could tell he treated her like a p.o.c. She grew and grew and gave the best speech about how she learnt to have confidence and talk in public. I ran into her husband about 6 months after the course and he told me she had left him, he couldn't understand why. I thought it stood out like dogs $&@@$.
He deserved to be left alone, and her brave move to have a life.it was amazing but I haven't seen either of them since then, he had to sell the gas station to pay her out.

ADVICE FROM A RETIRED HUSBAND

It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

My name is Dan. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife. When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for her to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.

Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club, so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner.

I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think .. For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, Boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the yard. I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support my wife. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, Guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

Signed,

Dan



EDITOR'S NOTE:
Dan died suddenly on January 31 of a perforated rectum. The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of 20grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that Dan, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.
Lol, I would never get away with that, I do all the cooking round here, I'm pretty good, my wife tells her friends the kitchen is for walking through to the lounge,lol

No, being kind to people, genuinely kind to them, not fake crap, but really mean it, it is magical. I look at a busboy at a restaurant no different, and I mean it, no different than a doctor. I give them the same respect, they have earned that and I am more than happy to give it to them.

We very similar mate, the course I did was I think a weekly night for 12? Weeks. The change I saw in people. I couldn't speak first night, last night I had them in stitches. I have a good sense of humour now, but didn't realise it at the time. My wife noticed the change in me and did the same course about a year later. She is also very outgoing now. Our kids have grown up with our confidence and principals as well , so the learning is ongoing. I love talking to people. I told some people a few of my true life stories before Xmas, I was in there office the other day when the office lady said to me, how she had told my cat story to all her friends. She said it was so funny and told it numerous times.
Ya wouldn't be dead for quids would ya?

I said I'll go to the bar myself and get my own, I said I'd be a tired bugger if I couldn't get myself a drink. After I did it a couple of times she came back to me and said I would get her in trouble if she didn't get my drinks. I then commented on her lovely hairstyle, then she served me and my table drinks. The people running the function said service was now self serve at the bar, jasmine the young girl came to me and said I will keep serving your table because we were a nice bunch of people. Everyone else had to get their own. I didn't ask for that, I just got it by being nice. I've said it many times here, it doesn't cost much to be nice.
The lady next to me who her partner is my mate said to me, you always get looked after.
