One  year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as
a Christmas gift...

          The next  year, I didn't buy her a gift.

          When she asked  me why, I replied,

          "Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"

          And that's how the fight started.....

          ____________________________ ____

          My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while
we were in bed.

          I turned to  her and said, 'Do you want to have  Sex?'

          'No,' she answered. I then said,

          'Is that your final answer?'

          She didn't even look  at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes..'

          So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

          And that's when the fight started...


          I took my wife to a restaurant.

          The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

          "I'll have  the rump steak, rare, please."

          He said,  "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"

          "Nah, she can order for herself."

          And that's when the fight  started.....


          My  wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school
reunion, and she kept staring at a  drunken man swigging his
drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

          I asked her, "Do you know  him?"

          "Yes", she sighed,

          "He's my old  boyfriend.  I understand he took to drinking
right after we split up those many years ago,  and I hear he
hasn't been sober since."< br>
          "My  God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"

          And then the fight  started...


          When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I
should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take
care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.. Always something
more important to me.
Finally she thought of  a clever way to make her point.

          When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the  tall grass, busily snipping
away with a tiny  pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time
and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I
came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, "When you finish
cutting the grass, you  might as well sweep the driveway."

          The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always  have a  limp.


          My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.

          She asked, "What's on TV?"

          I said, "Dust."

          And then the fight started...


          Saturday  morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my
lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage.  I hooked up the
boat up to the  van and proceeded to back out into a torrential
downpour. The wind was blowing 50mph, so I pulled back into the
garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather
would  be bad all day.

          I went back into the house,  quietly undressed, and slipped back
into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different
anticipation, and whispered, "The  weather out there is

          My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my
stupid husband is out fishing in that?"

          And that's how the fight started...


          My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming

          She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in
about 3 seconds."

        I bought her a bathroom scale.

          And then the fight started......


          After retiring, I went to the Social Security office  to apply
for Social Security.

          The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's License to verify my age.

          I looked in my  pockets and realized I had left my wallet at
home.  I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have
to go home and come back later.

          The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.

          So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

          She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for
me' and she processed my Social Se curity application.

          When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at
the Social Security office.  She said, 'You should have  dropped
your pants. You might have gotten disability too.'

          And then the fight started...


          My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom  mirror.

          She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,

          "I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.  I really need you
to pay me a compliment.'

          I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

          And then the fight started........
