One husband, aware that his constant arguing with his wife was ruining their relationship, tried to explain his inability to stop provoking her by looking at her and saying:

“Change don’t come easily.”

“Doesn’t” she said, correcting his English.

Misunderstanding her, he said, “Doesn’t what?”

“Come easily,” she said. “Change doesn’t come easily.”

“So you are agreeing with me?” asked the husband.

The wife answered, “Yes, but . . .”

“ Then why didn't you just say, ‘I agree’?” he asked.

“But I . . .” started the wife, but he cut her off.

“We're always arguing,” he said.

“I'm not arguing”.

“Yes, you are.”

“No, I'm not.”

“Then what is it we're doing?”

“Honestly, I have no idea,” she said

Driving his point home, the husband said, “ Well whatever it is, I'm sick of it, and it needs to change!”

To which his wife quipped, “To quote a wise man, ‘Change don't come easily.’”

Still not getting it, the husband said, “Exactly!”
