Where the world comes to study the Bible

Mother Knows Best

Here's all you need to know about the different relationships a guy has with his wife and his mother. I bought two ceiling fans, one for our home and one for my parents. While installing our fan, I had to stand on a chair on my tiptoes. As she watched me struggle, my wife let me know the reason for my troubles: "You're too short." Later my mother watched me on tiptoes as I was installing the other fan for my parents. Her comment: "The chair's too short."
