In regards to the port slowdown (TNT, 2-5), I decided to try a similar negotiation tactic at home.
I told my wife that although she keeps the house spotless, tends to our children's many needs, cooks gourmet meals, keeps the books, fulfills her . . . ahem . . . wifely duties and prevents our life from descending into chaos, I am simply not happy with this compensation package and will only be going to work three days a week and will no longer take out the trash and mow the lawn.
I had no idea it was this cold sleeping in the garage with the dog.
