Housewives vs. Non-housewives: a dozen rapid fires round
Statutory warning: It is not advisable to go through the content of this hub by any too emotional and sensitive house wife. It is a mere attempt to write a fun hub here. No intention to hurt anybody, on a very very serious note it is stated for kind consideration of all. It may be injurious to emotional health if one reads without humorous switch keeping in super active mode PLEASE.
[Waiting in terrible anxious status to see if this hub is flagged as one carrying inappropriate stuff by my fellow hubbers and really checking the hilarious side us, how much we can laugh at ourselves]
A cold war situation is always noticed among the two breed of one super sensitive breed and that is wives. This human variety takes the role play very seriously after the ceremonial incident (pun intended) of marriage. They after the occasion of marriage thinks that ownership right of another human is their almost status update (!) right and some tends to treat it as birth right also (very common). The suddenly turned responsible characteristics make the free spirit go sour after the honeymoon period is over. Then comes out the hyper sensitive ego to first attack the very first case in hand, the so called miserable by then husbands who is the sole responsible person of the change in update status. Generally, the wives breed very innocently (?) considers that always the male member is to be blamed for the life of so many responsibilities which grow every other day despite the many modern home and personal life serving gears.
So let us go through a quick list of the many attributes and the styles of the outburst suppressed always to show that they simply don’t care, but yes they do care a lot and for many a times.
1. Very cold vibes when they meet in public as if there is an undercurrent but unspoken of.
2. They try to show that they understand the misery of the both situation well, but can you smell something is burning????
3. The housewives try to improve their cooking to prove many things and then the budget goes up as of course they will need to send one small bowl of serving to the side door Non-Housewife (oh well she feels pity as the other don get time to cook delicious so much in fashion recipes for her family).
4. The housewives tend to stylise and glamourise the neighbourhood parties/get-togethers with much relaxing attitude to prove the other one as if the hectic schedules are mere unnecessary curse.
5. You better shy away from t he scene if there is group in the vicinity who tend to mix well in the neighbourhood of the housewives and compared to them the other wins the minority card. They will make the other minority brigade feel almost like an alien talking about all the more negligible but so important household knick-knacks.
6. Then the daily soap syndrome. The busy bee (though all tend to have part time helping hand with modern household equipments) housewives tend to talk about the TV daily shows like most urgent need and trend in the market and if they find an working odd one out and who is short of time for such an important element of life then it’s a bonus mark above the expectation.
7. Then if they have children then both the league has another topic to fire upon. And God bless those children who have to bear the brunt of unnecessary competition to prove the superiority.
8. The modern trend of keeping fit and slim is another topic where the two opponents again try to battle but often tend to agree very unwanted way that marriage with numerous burdens takes a toll on their once so hourglass figure!
9. Then universal problem of maids is another rare topic where they very rarely agree and they can talk about it longer without getting too irritating.
10. The ultra modern and costly mobile phones in the branded purses of the non-housewives are not at all a thing to exhibit if they do not want to remember a famous phrase which goes like, ‘hell hath furry’. Sometimes the vibrations are enough to make one leave a place.
11. It is advisable to the non-housewives brigade not to talk about work/official things in front of the other group if one does not want to feel some icy vibes around.
12. It may be injurious to emotional irritating hormone to present a very professional attitude in front of the housewives fraternity as they may act like the other one simply do not exist for them. Professional attitude may be referred to as money power, official outdoor trip without family and corporate culture for that matter.
Well it’s better to conclude as this can be an extensive list of characteristics.
Very importantly being a non-housewife I really do salute the effort and energy the housewives put in their home and family 23 x 7. My next hub will be dedicated to them and it will be not a fun hub for sure. It’s a big promise( trying hard actually not to offend anybody out here).
Disclaimer Clause: It is not intended to compare the status anyway here. It’s just a hub to have some fun which I really had while writing it. No intention anyway to hurt the ego and sentiment of my fellow married league. Let me declare honestly, I am a wife first then a mother and (oh so sorry!) a non-house wife. Though it pure incidental whatever is described here, not a personal experience. And very honestly I have many super active, super talented and super glamorous housewife friends to be proud of who can anytime give a real run for the non-housewife category. My request to all my housewife friends please to consider it as fun read only.
(Oh am I feeling so guilty after writing it…and the answer is well yes and should I post it, there my risk taking aptitude got better of me)
