A wife with her millionaire husband visited construction site of their project.
A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, “Hi, Emily! Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school.”
On the way home, her millionaire husband teased her, “Luckily you married me. Otherwise you would be the wife of a construction worker.”
She answered,” You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he would be the millionaire and not you.”
There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that “A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation.” Many relationships break off because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other, we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other party. Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It’s like a broken egg – cannot be reversed. Timing and choice of words is very important in your everyday communication, maintaining healthy relations and getting desired outcome.
