Domestic challenges men confront as they age...
A retired guy sits around the house all day, so one day his wife says, “Thomas, you could do something useful, like vacuum the house once a week."
Thomas gives it a moment’s thought and says: “Sure ! Why not. Where’s the vacuum ?"
Half an hour later, Thomas comes into the kitchen to get some coffee.
His wife says, “I didn't hear the vacuum running: I thought you were going to do the vacuuming ?”
Exasperated, Thomas answers:
The stupid thing is broken: it won't start. "We need to buy a new one."
“Really ?” she says, "SHOW ME -- IT WORKED FINE THE LAST TIME."
