Just for Laughs


The Doctor's Office

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After the check-up, the doctor took the wife aside and said; "Your husband is suffering from severe, long term stress and it's affecting his cardiovascular system. He is a good candidate for either a heart attack or a stroke. If you don't do the following four things, your husband will surely die".

"First, each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast and send him off to work in a good mood. Second, at lunch time, make him a warm, nutritious meal and put him in a good frame of mind before he goes back to work. Third, for dinner, fix an especially nice meal, and don't burden him with household chores. Fourth, and most important for invigorating him and relieving stress, make love with him several times a week and satisfy his every whim."

On the way home in the car, the husband turned to his wife and asked; "So, I saw the doctor talking to you and he sure seemed serious. What did he tell you?"

"You're going to die", she replied.

Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product brochure. In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself onto all other programs and launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system activity.

Applications such as Poker night 10.3, drunken Boys Night 2.5 and Saturday Football 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but uninstall does not work on this program. Can you help me, Please!!!

Thanks, Eric

Dear Eric:

This is a very common problem men complain about but in mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a "Utilities & Entertainment" program. Wife 1.0 is an Operating System and designed by its creator to run everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0. Hidden operating files within your system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to emulate Wife 1.0 so nothing is gained.

It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is not designed to do this. Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system. Look in your manual under "Warnings-Alimony/Child Support". I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation. Having installed Wife 1.0 myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding "General Partnership Faults" (GPF). You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur, regardless of their cause.

The best course of action will be to enter the command c:\APOLOGIZE. In any case avoid excessive use of the "Esc" key because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal. The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the (GPF)s.

Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very high maintenance. Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0. I recommend Flowers 2.0 and Chocolates 6.0. Do not under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck, Tech Support
