Robin’s 2 cents

A young couple moved into a new house. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbour hanging the washing outside.

“That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to was correctly. Perhaps she needs better soap powder.”

Her husband looked on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbour hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments.

A month later, the woman was surprised to see nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, “Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her?”

The husband replied, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”
