The story below is a classic joke about a man who found success later in life and let his self centered entitlement get the better of him. He brings a ridiculous complaint to his wife who shuts him down in the best way possible.
After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, “Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10—inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23—year—old girl every night.
Now, I have a $500,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 69—year—old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”
My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and ﬁnd a hot 23—year—old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10—inch black and white TV.
Aren’t older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems.”
