Gotta Love My Wife.

This afternoon my wife was in the elevator at work. She works at a large hospital in the Houston Medical Center.

Two young residents get on the elevator. One of them, an Indian fellow, was talking to the other one about bicycle commuting. Apparently he has a 4.5 mile commute. He was saying he doesn't know how much longer he can keep it up. The heat is killing him.

My wife chuckles and says "My husband has a 20 mile commute. He's old enough to be your father and he commutes on his bicycle."

The young doc, looking stricken, says "way to make me feel bad...."



She shouldn't be so hard on the youngsters.

She may have inspired him to tough it out and see the heat ain't as bad as he thinks it is.

I hope she then told him to be thankful that she didn't instead give him the "HTFU".
