Husband’s Job Loss Can Effect Wife (limerick)

Updated on September 11, 2013

Her husband was let go from job

Event that would cause wife to sob

Cash lost wouldn’t be

What stole the wife’s glee

Twas all of her free time he’d rob

      Nothing like having someone around when you have grown accustomed to having one's privacy--very funny

      That is so true, but it can happen the other way around too, when the wife has been going out to work and then retires. Takes some adjusting.
