A re-run letter in Carolyn Hax's column today was from a man who was disgruntled at the thought of having to come home immediately from work to be with his wife and newborn, instead of going out for a couple of hours every night with his friends.
He wrote, "I understand that she's also working by caring for our child, but gimme a break! I can't go out to the mall or go shopping when I work or take two naps during my workday!"
And 20,000 new mothers, on reading this letter, simultaneously reached for something to whack him with.
