    And "housewife" isn't a job! It's a duty.

    I come from a very proud family. We worked our way to the mailbox the first and fifteenth of every month. It was hard work, but it was worth it and made us who we are today. :grad:

    Dad was in retail and mom was permanently disabled (which is not a job either; its a social torture). She used to be a keypunch operator for the NYC Board of Ed, which discriminated against her based upon her being left-handed because supposedly all the machines were designed for right-handed operators. She won a citywide competition for keypunch operators: "handicapped" left-handed mom against thousands of "normal" right handed-operators, and mom won. it wasn't even close..

    Mom was a nurse... Dad was a compulsive gambler, womanizer and alcoholic . Hence my fabulous sense of humor. Thanks Dad :hat:.

    LOL. Not saying what my pop did, because it is the same thing I do, but our shop used to be in the basement of a building whose storefront was the club house for a biker gang. Great grand dad owned 3 buildings next to each other, and renting to the biker gang was basically his security system in during the crappy days of 70s-80s NYC.

    Wrong and go fuck yourself. Dumping your kids off in daycare and going to an outside job is a helluva lot easier than stayin with little kids all day. I sure as hell couldn't do it.

    My dad was a CPA and was the comptroller of a non-profit organization in Manhattan until he died very suddenly in 1981. My mom was a stay at home mom until that point, but since she needed to earn a living to support my brother and myself so we could finish our education, she took a job as a bookkeeper with an electronics company, until she retired in 2001 at age 70. She died in 2006.

    My dad was a salesman for companies like Schick, Gillette, Peter Paul Cadbury, and some refrigeration design company. He'd go "out of town" for a week or so fairly regularly. My mom was a housewife and babysitter till she went back to school and became a schoolteacher. Then my dad went back and became a schoolteacher too. Mom taught 5th and 6th grade, Dad taught 7th and 8th (at different schools). Mom loved her work. Dad didn't like it too much, because he taught in kind of a rough area, and there would always be one kid in every class who would disrupt things. They don't want to be there, nobody in the class wants them there, but it's the law. Dad would have to spend the whole time trying to discipline the one kid to the point where he had to throw him out of the class. He retired as soon as he got his 20 years in. Mom kept at it for a few more years. They're both retired now and still married.
