Paddy left for work one Friday afternoon. But, being pay-day, instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend drinking with the boys and spending all his wages. When he finally appeared home Sunday night, he was confronted by his furious long suffering wife and was bollocked for nearly two hours with language befitting his actions. Finally his wife stopped the tirade and simply said to him. "How would you like it if you didn't see me for nearly three days?" Paddy rolled his eyes and replied. "Dat, would be foine wit me." Monday went by and he didn't see his wife, nor Tuesday, but on Wednesday evening, the swelling had gone down just enough so that he could see her a little, out of the corner of his left eye.
