At her local dealing with Husbands Support Group, Carol Credible (32) sits before a stunned audience.
“I don’t believe you”, says Susan Stunned (46), the leader of the HSG. “You’re making that up.”
The remaining women in the room seem to side with Susan.
“It’s true. Mike had a dirty pair of underwear in his hand and didn’t throw them on the ground next to the washing basket – he actually put them inside it,” said Carol.
Scoffing, sideways glances, and under the breath coughs of “bullshit” prompt Carol to pull out her phone and press play on a video. Flabbergasted, the women in the room cannot believe their eyes as they watch a married man place an object into a washing basket on the first go.
“I’ve never seen one do that before,” said Debra Disbelief (30). “I didn’t know they knew how!”
“I drew a basketball hoop over my laundry basket hoping it would encourage hubby to at least throw dirty clothes near the thing. Alas, it didn’t”, said Neve Nonbeliever (44).
Looking at Carol like she discovered fire, the group want to know her secret and beg her to train husbands everywhere in this vital skill. After a few moments consideration, Carol agrees to help the sisterhood out.
“If I can reduce the stress of just one woman over clothes on the floor, it will be worth it,” declared Carol.
The local Husbands Support Group meets every Saturday at 10.00am at the Lalor Park Hotel and goes until the first race at Randwick.
