A mild-mannered man was tired of being bossed around by his wife so he went to a psychiatrist.
The psychiatrist said he needed to build his self-esteem, and so gave him a book on assertiveness, which he read on the way home.
He had finished the book by the time he reached his house.
The man stormed into the house and walked up to his wife.
Pointing a finger in her face, he said, â€œFrom now on, I want you to know that I am the man of this house, and my word is law! I want you to prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when Iâ€™m finished eating my meal, I expect a sumptuous dessert afterward. Then, after dinner, youâ€™re going to draw me my bath so I can relax. And when Iâ€™m finished with my bath, guess whoâ€™s going to dress me and comb my hair?â€
â€œThe funeral director,â€ said his wife.
