Hea Naise Juhend

Parit 1957 a Good Housekeeping ajakirjast (mida mulle muuseas meheode 2 aasta jarjest saadab). Maletan et kui G ja mina kihlusime, siis G ja minu parim sober Chris toi mulle lahkelt koopia ja teatas et eeldab et koik saab enne pulmi paheopitud. :) Ning kuigi ma kogu aeg luba G-le et kui ma koju jaan, siis keeran juuksed lokki, ja kontsad jalas teen ukse lahti uhe kaega ja teises hoian kulma martinit, G-l vist suurt usku pole. G kahtlustab et see nimekiri rohkem naljaga tehtud, et inimesed nii tagurlikud 50ndatel ei olnud. Voib olla jah aga osadele neist enamik mehi kirjutaks kahe kaega alla.



- Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have be thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they get home and the prospect of a good meal is part of the warm welcome needed.
- Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. -- Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.
- Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
- Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives. Run a dustcloth over the tables.
- During the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering to his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
- Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Encourage the children to be quiet.
- Be happy to see him.
- Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
- Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first - remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
- Don't greet him with complaints and problems.
- Don't complain if he's late for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through at work.
- Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or lie him down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
- Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
- Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
- A good wife always knows her place.

Ekstaole, tüüpiline Stepford wife! Mingis kohalikus lehes refereeriti 50-ndate aastate juhendit koduperenaistele ja seal oli käsk ka lapsed jalust koristada ajaks, kui MEES saabub.

hea, et ma sel ajal ei elanud veel...

kuigi nt see punkt, et toit olgu valmis mehe (jumala) tulekuks, aga ise pead veel enne seda puhkama ja end valmis sättima. toit ju siis puha jahtunud kui jumal saabub.

ma arvan, et naljast on ikka asi natuke kaugel. Lõppeks oli see siiski 50a tagasi, mil seesinased lahked juhtnöörid kirja said. Aga ma väga loodan, et naiste endi õnneks ei osanud nad muud väga tahta:))

ma usun, et kui me suudaks täita kasvõi ainult seda 7. punkti, oleks juba kõik hästi...
