marriage is like a company?

what?

all i know is that boyfriend (husband) said today... "being married is like getting a job. you want to know that the company you're working for is compatible with your goals.. "

or something like that. something about careers and jobs and a resume. and i think he threw something about salary increases in there. not really. but basically he was trying to imply that you don't go into marriage lightly. you don't propose without knowing that the person you're attempting to be with for the long haul is worth it. you don't ask before you know. and you definitely don't ask when you aren't sure.

all i know is that i can now assume that i am a company. and apparently, boyfriend is an employee. i will now boss him around... write him up when he's bad... and fire him when he gets 3 warnings. that's how companies work, right?

So....does this mean that I am automatically CEO??? Can I issue Top Secret Company Memo's that state something to the effect of, "All men in this house will be required to return the seat to the closed position. Further, it is required that all men also commit to picking up their underwear off the floor."

If so, count me in. I think I like this idea....

You forgot that dishes do not magically levitate to the dishwasher by themselves and that the laundry hamper is not a basketball hoop and if its anywhere within 15 feet it counts!

On man Chris, of all the analogies you could have made about marriage....THAT one is going to come back and bite you in the posterior end!

Well, I for one like the company I'm getting hired on at next June. The fringe benefits are freaking AMAZING!

Mike said...

To echo what Point was saying, I think he was hinting at role play.

Becky said...

LOL thats exactly what that means!

Jill said...

Husband wants to know how you compromise on that particular goal Point?

For some reason, I don't think that is the type of thing he was referring to.

Maybe he wants you to start dressing up in severe blazer and skirt combos, with your hair up and glasses on, and then sternly chastise him for not completing his paperwork on time! HA!

And apropos of nothing, guess who's doing a radio show on BlogTalkRadio this Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. EST? That would be ME! Doesn't that rock??! My host page is blogtalkradio.com/table4five if you want to check me out! LOL

Totally. My title is CINC-House (which stands for Commander In Chief - a little military-speak). And I had a friend who said she had sacked her boyfriend (translation from British - she fired him).

I found you through Phoenix. This is so funny. You're his supervising manager, right?!
