    It’s No Lathering Matter

    | Santa Monica, CA, USA | Marriage & Partners

    (I work in a cosmetics shop that specializes in handmade soaps. A middle-aged man comes in and approaches me. He seems confused.)

    Man: “Hey, my wife sent me in here to pick something up.”

    Me: “Sure! What did we need to find for her?”

    Man: “I don’t know. She gave me a note and told me to give it to you guys and not read it.”

    (Confused, I take the envelope from him and read the note:)

    “Hello,

    My husband needs to be taught a lesson on the way he should speak to and about women. If you could pick out a nice piece of soap (preferable something mouth-sized) to help clean up his language, it would be much appreciated. I think a nice floral would be appropriate. Feel free to tease and torture him a bit. Some public humiliation might be good for him.”

    Man: “So, what does she want?”

    Me: *cheerily* “She wants some soap!”

    (I select a strong jasmine soap, cut it down to the perfect size, wrap it for him and ring him up.)

    Man: “That’s it? She could have told me that!”

    Me: “I think she had her reasons. Good luck!”

    (The note hung in a place of pride in our break room for a solid 6+ months.)
