A Nicer Approach

Every night, after dinner, a man took off for a bar. He spent the whole evening there, and arrived home very drunk around midnight each night.

His wife, waiting up for him, would go to the door and let him in. Then she would proceed to yell and scream at him, for his constant nights out, and coming home in a drunken state. But, Salim continued his nightly routine.

One day, the wife was talking to a friend about her husband's behavior, the friend listened to her, and then said, "Why don't you treat him a little differently, when he comes home? Instead of shouting at him, why don't you give him some loving words, and welcome him home with a kiss? He then might change his ways."

The wife thought that might be a good idea.

That night, Salim took off again, after dinner. And, about midnight, he arrived home, in his usual condition.

His wife heard him at the door, and quickly went to it, and opened the door, and let Salim in.

This time, instead of screaming at him, as she had always done, she took his arm, and led him into the living room. She sat him down in an easy chair, put his feet up and took his shoes off. Then she went behind him, and started to cuddle him a little. After a little while, she said to him, "It's pretty late, dear. I think we had better go upstairs to bed, now, don't you think?"

At that, Salim replied, "I guess we might as well. I'll be getting in trouble with my stupid wife when I get home anyway!"
