Housewife's Life is Not Always As Tough as She Thinks It Is Writes the wife of a government worker who resents the fact that her husband has such an easy life "*• compared with her own: "I would really enjoy reading a few columns blasting •10 - hour - a week husbands into some useful activity around their homes." Instead of wrlt- „ .. , In? that blast, I'd Kuth Millet! ,i ke to ask the woman who would enjoy reading it, a few questions.' ' Did you ever stop to figure out if your working hours are so much longer than your husband's? Keep track for a few weeks—and you mav be surprised. Maybe your working day does start ivhen his does, and lasts lon»- er. But don't forget to subtract time out for an afternoon nap, the time spent gossiping on the telephone, the hour or two siwnt in a neighbor's back yard, the afternoon shopping trip — where actual purchases could have been bought in half an hour — the session "at the beauty shop, and 50 on. Count those out of your working hours, and you may find thai your actual working time is cut considerably. Also, give this a little thought: If your husband can earn a good living for his family In -10 hours a week and you say he does have a Rood Job —what's so disgraceful about that? Maybe you can figure out ways io cut your own work to a minimum, instead of feeling sorry for yourself because your work is never done and his is done in 40 hours a week.
