| Hilarious Pete Smith short has hubby steaming over his wife's behavior...
For all those who worry that this short is too sexist, be aware that there was a similar short called I LOVE MY HUSBAND BUT to give equality to the man/woman thing.

This is Pete Smith's Dave O'Brien at his funniest. We see him in various situations getting hot under the collar as he waits for his wife while she fusses with her hat and hair in front of a mirror; awakes in the morning with a bunch of chatter; continues gabbing over the phone while he's at the office; fights over placement of a lamp the husband wants to move in order to read comfortably; keeps him waiting while she buys a hat while he glances around and keeps having eye contact with a woman buying a corset; is chased away from his stamp collection to mow the lawn; is covered with soot when he tries to clean the fireplace at her request; and finally, sees her destroy the family car when she can't back out of the garage despite his guidance.

It's concise, funny and very on target--and certainly something every male in the audience can appreciate even if women find it a bit overdone.
