Jack was about to marry Mary and his father took him to one side.
‘When I married your mother, the first thing I did when we got home was take off my trousers,’ he said.
‘I gave them to your mother and told her to put them on .
When she did, they were enormous on her and she said to me that she couldn’t possibly wear them, as they were too large… ‘I told her, ‘of course they’re too big’.
I wear the trousers in this family and I always will.
‘Ever since that day, we have never had a single problem.’
Jack took his father’s advice and as soon as he got Mary alone after the wedding, he did the same thing; took off his trousers, gave them to Mary and told her to put them on.
Mary said that the trousers were far too big and she couldn’t possibly wear them.
‘Exactly’ replied Jack. ‘I wear the trousers in this relationship and I always will.
I don’t want you to forget that.’ Mary paused for a while and then removed her knickers and gave them to Jack. ‘
Try these on,’ she said, so he tried them on but they were too small.
‘I can’t possibly get into your knickers,’ said Jack. ‘Exactly,’ replied Mary.
‘And if you don’t change your bloody attitude, you never will.’
