Annie's Helper January 7, 2008

Today’s neutered spaniel is “Been Waiting”, who cut a deal years ago to buy a house near his wife’s job, with the clear understanding that when she retired they would move nearer his job. Well, 20 big ones have come and gone and wifey is waffling on the deal. They have no children, attachments or close friends to hold them, but wifey refuses to relocate.

What is “Been Waiting” to do?


Dear “Waiting”,

A cattle prod was my first thought. But seriously, the answer really writes itself.

You don’t have a marriage. You have a contractual arrangement with benefits--I hope. Time to execute the agreement and move. Put the house up for sale, find a new place and pack up your stuff. Maybe then she will figure it out, that is if she has no special attachments to the UPS, Fed Ex or plumber guys.

On the other hand, if she is a hottie with great benefits, you might think about the prod. If not move on.

Good Luck,

The Dumbplumber
