Wild Wife

A harried housewife is criticized by her male-chauvinist husband, who remarks that she doesn’t make effective use of her time during the day and insinuates that she doesn’t finish her chores because of laziness. The wife replies by telling of a typical day plagued by a troublesome vacuum cleaner, a long wait in a bank, bulk purchases at a department store, and a parking ticket imposed after city workers suddenly installed a fire hydrant next to the space where she had parked. When her husband refuses to be sympathetic about her long and difficult day, she takes a rolling pin and gives him a swift whack on his head.
