What Do You Do All Day?

A man came home from work and found his three
children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes
and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.
Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one
wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of
clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog
food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a
small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had
happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels,
scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper
lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up
at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"

She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?"

"Yes," was his incredulous reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

Salams...

Hmm...Over the years I've learned that guys who are born and brought up overseas are just completely different. They have a different mindset/ideas/worldview about women, their role, Islamic ideaology about women and so on. This, curiously despite the fact that we are all Muslims. Is not all our Islam the same?, you might ask... But our opinions and interpretations, humor and values are completely different. It's just impossible to change their views.They honestly have to move to a Western country and live here for a number of years for their worldview to change, and even then sometimes it doesn't. Anyway, my advice for everyone is just to agree to disagree. At the end of the day, you're not marrying them and they're not marrying you, so no need to fight about these things Smiley

Salaams,

People from different cultures think different correct... yet whose worldview is right or wrong is a different topic altogether.

I feel like adding a comment that might be considered below the belt, but I genuinely dont intend to say this as an attack or insult. i.e.

How many cases of disrespect for women, divorces and domestic violence have you seen around you? Were all those guys from back home? Secondly, aren't dads of most XBCDs from back home?

In short, stop generalizing!

Thanks.

wsalams,

Dads have lived here for ages. They've also raised daughters here. Their worldview is very different than what it used to be. For example my uncle in India has diametrically opposed views than my father does.

"Disrespect for women, divorced and domestic violence" has no monopoly in any culture unfortunately. I've seen it present in every type of culture/background. Anyways my point was that people who live in the "west" and people who live in "other countries" have different views and just think differently, to which you agree. So we'll leave it at that.

I agree with Jannah's reply that those brought up in the West are just totally different and I think it's a major factor in your situation. My advice would be to communicate about it, nicely yet honestly, and try to come to some conclusions.

No doubt! Al-hamdulilah that my husband was raised here in the US, otherwise we'd probably have big problems...  Lips Sealed

This thread is funny, but not really.   Cheesy

Today I told my daughter, "Isn't today nice?  When was the last time we had a day like today the we could lazy around all day and do nothing?"
She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "Mom, I have no idea what you are talking about.  We spent all morning cleaning, you still have laundry going, and you just said you are going to go clean and organize upstairs." 
 Tongue
But I feel like I haven't done anything but lazed around all day.
