I read about a stay-at-home mom who went to a PTA meeting one night. While she was gone, her husband and oldest daughter decided they would clean the kitchen for mom and surprise her when she got home.

Well, they washed all the dishes, put away the pots and pans, cleaned the stove and countertops -- the kitchen was spotless...

Later than night, mom came home from the meeting... she walked in the kitchen and fixed herself something to drink and then went into the den to watch TV with her family... but she never said a word about the kitchen being cleaned...

Finally, her husband said, "Honey, did you notice the clean kitchen?"

"I did," she said

"Well, you're not going to say thank you or anything?"

She said, "Why should I? It's a thankless job, isn't it?"
