A man is sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stays at home. Wanting her to see what he goes through each day he prays, “Dear Lord, every day I put in eight hours of hard work while my wife stays at home. I want her to know what I go through so can you please trade our bodies?” Tap here for the punchline.

A man is sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stays at home. Wanting her to see what he goes through each day he prays, “Dear Lord, every day I put in eight hours of hard work while my wife stays at home. I want her to know what I go through so can you please trade our bodies?”

God decides to grant the man’s wish. The next morning the guy awakes as a woman. He rises, cooks breakfast for the family, wakes the kids, sets out their school clothes, feeds them breakfast, packs their lunches, drives them to school, comes home, picks up the washing, takes it to the dry cleaners and stops at the bank to draw money to pay the electricity and telephone bills.

After paying the bills he does the grocery shopping then goes home and packs them away. He cleans the cat’s litter box and bathes the dog. By then it’s 1 pm so he hurries to make the beds, vacuums, dusts and sweeps and mops the kitchen floor.

Then he rushes to the school to pick up the kids. In the car they get into an argument and he has to stop them killing each other. Once home he gives them cookies and milk and gets them started on their homework. Then he manages to watch a bit of TV while doing the ironing.

By then it’s 4.30 pm so he begins peeling the potatoes and washing the greens for the salad. After preparing the meat he lays the table for supper. Afterwards he cleans the kitchen, loads the dishwasher, folds the laundry, bathes the kids and puts them to bed.

At 9 pm he’s exhausted and although his chores for the day aren’t done he goes to bed – where he’s expected to make love, which he manages to get through without complaining.

When he wakes the next morning he immediately kneels by the bed and prays, “Lord, I don’t know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back!”

The Lord replies, “My son, I can see you’ve learnt your lesson and I’ll be happy to change things back to the way they were. But you’ll have to wait nine months because you got pregnant last night . . .”
