Giving Up Wine

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for a couple of dollars for dinner. She took out her wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, 'If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?' 'No, I had to stop drinking years ago', the homeless woman said. 'Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' she asked. 'No, I don't waste time shopping, I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive' the homeless woman said. 'Will you spend this at the beauty salon instead of food?' she asked. 'Are you NUTS, I have not had my hair done in 20 years' replied the homeless woman. 'Well, she said, 'I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.' The homeless Woman was shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.' She said, 'That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine.'

Thanks, I too enjoyed this and thought of shareing this with you guys. Men take women for granted, and hate it when we spend on ourselves. A humourous situation. I can even imagine the poor guys face when he has to sit beside that woman for dinner. Smart wife, eh.
