A very tidy young man was distressed by his wife's carelessness in
attire at home. He was especially annoyed by a torn skirt, which his
wife was forever pinning and never mending. Being a tidy man, he had
acquired some skill with a needle in his bachelor days. With the
intention of administering a rebuke to his wife, he set to work on the
skirt during her absence and sewed it up neatly. When, on her return
home, he showed her what he had done, she was touched and kissed him
tenderly. Soon she left the room, to return with an armful of garments.
"Here are some more for you, darling," she announced happily. "Don't
hurry. Just do them whenever you have time."
