My wife is constantly griping about her mother, my mother-in-law. The length of time spent griping is directly proportional to the distance she is from her mother. The closer she is to her mother, the more my wife gripes to me about her.
After about 45 minutes on the phone with my wife one day (all of which was spent on the topic of her mother), I devised a plan.
I told my wife to take a crisp, new $20 bill, fold it, and place it under her pillow. The next morning when she (my mother-in-law) asks how it got there, my wife was to get a look of amazement on her face and say the following:
"Mom, I can't believe it, the Bitch Fairy came last night."
My wife wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.
