    Yes dear, it's only an off / on switch, controlled by the temperature setting, not a gas pedal.

    Have you ever noticed that the more you try to help your wife the worse it gets?

    My wife of 47 years actually likes that I know how things work and can fix them. She does not like for me to explain it to her.

    Mine thinks if I'm not doing what she thinks I should be doing, then I'm wasting time. Had that discussion today, AGAIN!

    FYI: relationship tip. Studies show women/girls can discern about 1000 colors. Men/boys about 200. So if you tell her they look the same to me both of you are correct. She can see a difference that you can not. No amount of training and experience can correct for this deficit.

    Studies also show wives can smell/sense fear on their husbands.

    Look at this poor fella. His wife told him to go fill up the water bucket & then handed this to him.

    Knowing what was in store for him if he questioned anything, he just did his best..

    I only do what the voices in my wife's head tells her to tell me what to do.

    Same here, but if I talk tech, the eyes glaze over. 🙄
