Ok, so I'm in my 30's and so are my buddies, we all came from nothing and happened to be smart enough to earn six figure incomes in the tech industry in the midwest, not super easy to do. All of our wives don't need to work and never have.
So at a party last week, myself and a few buddies are sitting around the table and the wives start talking:
"Can you imagine where they'd be without us?" They all nod and laugh.
I answer to my wife (the ring leader) -- "Yeah, I'd have a few more cars."
She gives me a look and I just smirk. The next day she tries to corner me on it and I STFU. Was that the right move replying to her rhetorical question? I could have just let her and the other wives pat themselves on the back for "raising such great husbands", and STFU.
So I'm not really sure if I end up on top in the whole situation at the end of the day.
