It's never a good idea to argue with a woman.

    Have you ever won an argument with a woman?  No offense to you ladies.  I have nothing but respect and admiration for a winner.  Even when you lose the argument you win.  Reminds me of an old joke:

    One morning, a husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.  Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.  She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book.
    The peace and solitude are magnificent. Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.  He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'  'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')  'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.  'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'  'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.   For all I know you could start at any moment.   I'll have to take you in and write you up.'  'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.  'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.  'That's true, but you have all the equipment.  For all I know you could start at any moment.'  'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

    Never argue with a woman who reads.
    It's likely she can also think.
    Send this to four women who are thinkers

      Painfully true as well.  After 35 years of marital bliss I've learned.

    There is a whole chapter on effective arguing in the top-secret how to be a wife handbook.  As an experienced husband of 35 years, Tobey100 clearly knows of the book, and has learned to be afraid... very afraid...
