Poll

Question: If you are a housewife, why don't you work?

Options:

My husband is rich; he can afford to take care of me

Women aren't supposed to work

I grew up believing the woman's place is in the home

I have kids; the children of mothers who work become criminals

I enjoy staying home, lying on the sofa eating bonbons and playing on CM

This is a sweet gig; why should I work?

I get taken care of and all I have to do is "take care of" him *wink, wink*

They won't buy me a car or buy me expensive shoes at work, will they?

I'm a trophy wife; tropies just stand there looking shiny; they don't work

I object to the suggestion I don't work! Housewifery is HARD! I break fingernails all the time and my manicurist is fed up with me!

What, there's no "other" option so I can make excuses, er, I mean explain - why I don't work?

Turnabout is fairplay.

I haven't read one reply in that other post; I just read the text and looked at the options in the poll and rushed right over here to do my thang.  I'm not angry, at all. 

Do you believe that other post makes people angry?  Should I avoid it?  I planned on doing that; it's way too big and I plan to be busy with my real posts, today. 

This is just me doing another satire of another post.  It's not the first time I've done this.

Feel free to explain yourself, and please be honest and don't use childcare as an excuse.

Your options are rediculous btw!

Thank you!

LOL  I was split between the two major choices that people have hit.  I went with bon bons.  It's not all bon bons, but hey, sometimes it is.  My nail lady had to remove all my acrylics last time because I had chipped and abused so many.  LOL  I don't just SAH either.  I just took this semester off of class.  I needed the break.
