I have a fair number of pet peeves, and long-time readers will be aware of a few of them. I want to talk about one in particular today.
You see, I really hate it when a married guy calls his wife “the boss.”
I mean, I might be able to tolerate it if it was said sarcastically. Perhaps as some sort of flirtation/foreplay thing.
But I cannot say that I’ve ever heard it used in that way. The only way I’ve ever heard used is seriously, or in that half-joking way which deep down is tinged with fear.
Frankly, its pathetic.
Men, your wife is not your “boss.” She is your helpmate. God is your boss. Not your wife. Remember what happened last time a man decided to let his wife play boss? Yeah… didn’t end so well, did it?
So in all seriousness, stop calling your wife your boss. Just stop. Everyone will be better off for it.
And that brings this PSA to an end.
