A Little Whine With Dinner
Bradford put his face in his hands while sitting at the dinner table, as he listened to his wife’s constant bickering. It had been 20 years since they were married and two decades of being shaped and reshaped by his nagging wife was enough. He was going to leave her as soon as he could figure out a way to do it without suffering any fallout from the divorce.
Grinding, grinding, grinding into his soul, one complaint after the other kept pouring from her mouth, until he could not take it anymore. When will he ever get any relief? It was sure he would not get it willingly from her.
She knew just how to push his buttons; she was a master at it. And since no one else would listen to her or tolerate her whining over the inequities of life, Bradford was the sole recipient of her daily ongoing tirade.
Bradford got his divorce and moved far away from her to put an end to any interaction he might have with her. In a move to make him pay, she married his loser friend Kenton, who had a gastric problem unbeknownst to Bradford’s former wife.
When she started in on reshaping Kenton with her constant nagging and generally irritable disposition, Kenton started to get nervous and when he was nervous, he had a problem with gas. The more she nagged, the more nervous he became and the more he would let it fly. The smell got so bad; that his new wife could not stay in the room and would hurriedly exit the environment Kenton was in. Eventually she gave up her nagging and found she liked getting rid of the complaining that made her life also miserable. She stopped and so he stopped as well.
At some point, they started working more as a team and he was soon promoted at work, making a very comfortable living. And they both lived the rest of their lives actually somewhat happy.
And yes, I’m going to say it…now working together; they enjoyed the sweet smell of success!
