Charity begins at home
She came home early and found her husband in their bedroom, making love to a very attractive young woman.
The wife was VERY upset!
“You are a disrespectful pig!” she cried. “How dare you do this to me - a faithful wife, the mother of your children?!? I’m leaving you! I want a divorce straight away!!!”
And he replied: “Hang on just a minute, honey, so thatI can at least tell you what happened.”
“Fine, go ahead”, she sobbed, “but they’ll be the last words you’ll ever say to me!”
And he began:
“Well, I was getting into the car to drive home and this young lady here asked me for a lift.
She looked so down and out and defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car. I noticed that she was very thin, not well dressed and very dirty.
She told me that she hadn’t eaten for three days!
So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night, the ones you wouldn’t eat because you’re afraid you’ll put on weight. The poor thing devoured them in moments!
Since she needed a good clean-up, I suggested a shower and while she was doing that I noticed her clothes were dirty and full of holes so I threw them away. Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don’t wear because you say they are too tight.
I also gave her the underwear that was your anniversary present, which you don’t wear because I don’t have good taste.
I found the sexy blouse my sister gave you for Christmas, that you don’t wear just to annoy her, and I also donated those boots you bought at the expensive boutique and don’t wear because someone at work has a pair just like them.”
He took a quick breath and continued: “She was so grateful for my understanding and help, and as I walked her to the door she turned to me with tears in her eyes and said…, ‘Please………do you have anything else that your wife doesn’t use?’”
