Troubling Traits During Recession

As per my daily weekday routine, I watched ABC7 Good Morning America (GMA) every morning for the weather forecast and other news. One section shocked me and I just could not believe my eyes and/or ears. It is unbelievable, despicable and disgusting.

The story is about a couple living in California. They have a daughter. Both worked in sales. The husband loses his job sometime last year and has not been able to find another since so but in the meantime he is the Mr.Mom. He does all the housework, cook, clean, laundry and the whole nine yard that a typical full-time wife/mother would do. The wife is still working. Sounds normal right? It is if she treats him with respect. Not in this case though. She admitted (to the whole nation via GMA!) that ever since her husband loses his work and become Mr.Mom, she has lost a lot of respect for him and keep on bitching about how she wants to be a mother first!

Can you imagine if the situation is reversed? This woman and the family still has a house (it looks big and nice!) and 2 nice cars. A lot of people here in California has lost their job AND home. She should be thankful that at least the husband is taking over her role as the wife and mother to their only child while looking for a job. It is not like he just sits at home doing nothing and she has to do the houseworks when she comes back from work. Looking at her face, she doesn't even look guilty or feels that she is wrong. I really feel like I want to bitch-slap that bitch.

Please go read and watch the news here.

Kearns said...

Wow. Everyone should ask their future spouses, before they get married, if times get tough will you be a big jerk?

Rita Ho said...

What a horrible person! She obviously does not love him and the marriage won't last if it is not already over.

I also wonder what sales job allow her to work 14 hours. Hmmmm ....

Farina,

Cheh sungguh tidak solehah pompuan tu noks.

I almost menangis kegembiraan yesterday (biasala I over k) when my hubby tolong sidai laundry since my maid balik kg.

For better , for worst, katanya masa nak kawin dulu yek...hampeh

Nightwing said...

Please slap her on my behalf too.

What a thing to say abt the hubby. What goes around comes around. Will see what she will do when it is her turn.

Pi Bani said...

Laahai, kalau husbandnya tu jenis dok rumah buat taik mata adalah juga sebab nak lose respect. Dia ingat senang ke nak dapat husband yang sanggup jadi Mr Mom? Ish, ish, ish... tak bersyukur punya perempuan...

Anis Zainal-Pacleb said...

mak oii.... arrogant sungguh.... anyway, it's her personal opinion but i dun think it's wise to publicly declared her dwindling respect to the husband kan...

tolong la lepuk kan dier for me too....

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Mr Mom takes care of the house. whats the fuss? unless the hubby neglects his enforced duty, she should shut the hell up.

stupid bitch.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Sarah E, i wish i could!

David, yup. I guess now they're changing the vows.

Rita, tengok muka dia pun rasa macam nak lempang kan?

DR, memang hampeh! Sungguh mithali suami you! lol.

NW, yes i hope there's gonna be a day when she's gonna be on the other side of the fence.

Pi, betul tu but we can see tht the husband doesn the housework and working on the computer dlm garage. kesian sungguh!

Anis, dahlah cakap puclicly pastu dgn muka yg maca sial. geram sungguh I!

Kerp, itulahnya. Kalau taknak kerja 14hrs, juallah the other car and get a smaller/cheaper one.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Farina,

I rasa dia nak balas dendam kat hubby dia kot..entah2 dia dulu pernah kena bully dek hubby, so payback time la..

Kesian jugak kat hubby dia tu ye, dapat wife yang kering hati..

Barbara said...

Hi Farina,
It's nice to see you my dear ;)
Yes, it sounds like she has a hubby who is so good. And whzat does she do? bitch away...
You have to be thankful for all your spouse does for you & the kids. He's trying to keep the home running and probably doing a great job too.
See you soon ;)

Salt N Turmeric said...

Ida, kalau nak balas dendam pun, jgnlah hebahkan kat national tv. :P

Barbara, obviously she only respect him when he brings in money to the household. I really hope he'd leave her.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Farina,

Maybe dia ingat ni mcam reality show kot..boleh gain sympathy..

Naz said...

Publicity stunt! Lepas ni nanti akan ada org yg jemput dia be part of a tv show sebab ramai nak tengok muka yang sangat di benci itu. In the end, dia juga yang kaya..hehe!

Lyana Mauseth said...

jom kita ramai2 bitch slap dia haha..kureng asem betul...tu nasib baik husband dia buat kerja rumah tau..dibuatnya dok rumah buat taik mata, melepet depan TV je keja..hah padan muka kan...

ray said...

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

Okay. U can go slap bitch, but not cat, please! kata Pak Malim sambil memanggil polis. (Saya takut kena pukul, kata Pak Malim sambil memegang bakul).

Julie Lim said...

This reversal of roles is quite common these days. Many women are bringing in the bacon and the men are wearing the skirt, hahaha.

I think it all boils down to the individual whether she can accept it or not. Some can and some can't, like in this case.

On second thought, maybe this whole story is the station's gimmick to buat cerita! I mean who would want to air life's shit on national television?!

Cat Cat said...

Apalah punya bini, kan...??? I would kick her ass if I were the husband.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Ida, maybe kot but it backfired. lol.

Naz, i hope not! iv had enough of stupid reality tv shows already. Phening kepala ku.

Lyana, itulahnya. Tak sedar di untung punya pompuan.

Kucing Ray, dont worry kuah kari, no cat was abused, kata farina yg kurang fuse.

Julie, it is quite normal here for Mr.Mom but then again she looks kinda asian to me. I dunno ...

Cath, nanti masuk penjara and takleh jumpa anak lah pulak kalau dia buat camtu. huhu
