Driver WE, THE WOMEN KY RUTH M1LLKT1 NEA SUB Write* Ruth Millet* "Wiil you please write a piece," businessman asks me, "advising wives to leave their husbands alone during business hours?" "My wife telephones me at the office two or three times a day— sometimes just to chat, sometimes to ask me to do an errand for her, and sometimes for no reason at all that I can figure out. "An^ if she happens to be down town shopping she'll call me up ask me whether or not she ought to buy something she Is going to buy. no matter what I say "I can't ask her not to call me it the office, she'd resent that But it Isn't good business, anct 1 don't see why wives don't itnderMjind that " She jus: Doesn't Know Hie Si-iire I'd be willing to bet your wife never worked in an office herself II she had she'd probably realize that personal teleprone calls during working uours are a nuisance. And that no man likes to have his associates think his wife can't leave him Alone during working hours. Since she probably just doesn't realize that her telephone calls often interrupt your work, why i tton'l you try explaining it to her— even at the risk of hurt feelings? You might even promise to call her once a day—when it's convenient for you—so that she Mill have a chance to tell 1 you anything-she wants to remind you of, or discuss with you. If you're hesitant about following this advice, remember it is usually kinder to be frank about an annoying situation than to put up with it resentfully. Remember, too, that It, doesn't hurt a wife to be taught some espect for her husband's job. That's something the wife who makes a habit of interupting her husband work just doesn't have.
