Got this email. No comments
Last night my spouse was berating me for wanting to check my
email as soon as I got home from work. “You know”, she
complained, “I think that work rules your life”.
“No dear,” I replied, “_you_ rule my life. I just prefer work.”
- Once upon a time leadership mattered, now dealership rules the world.
- Once upon a time quality was craftsman’s pride, now it is a departmental mess.
- Once upon a time mouse was an untouchable mammal, now it is handheld pest. Once upon a time wisdom was cultivated by wise people, now it is flashed on T-shirts.
- Once upon a time teacher taught and students learned, now teacher trade and students consume.
- Once upon a time population was a problem, now it is a flourishing mass market.
- Once upon a time competition brought out the best, now it brings out the worst in people.
- Once upon a time there was a golden rule, now if you have gold, you rule.
- Once upon a time truth telling was good for your soul, now it is bad for promotion.
- Once upon a time success meant living by ideals, now it is about using above all principles.
- Once upon a time beauty was in the eye of the beholder, now it is booming business.
- Once upon a time the government was clean and s** was dirty, now one doesn’t know.
Very nice. Do watch.

Have marked the most amusing part of the story
AHMEDABAD: The bloodbath in the stock market has not only led people to lose everything, it has also exposed cracks in relationships. A woman in
Ahmedabad is in distress after her husband is talking of deserting her as she lost over Rs 30 lakh in the market in recent times.
“I am a 34-year old housewife. I am married for the last ten years and have one daughter. In my free time, I have been trading online in stocks and earned quite a lot. But recently in this bearish trend, my stocks are not doing well and I have run into losses to the tune of Rs 12 lakh.”
“I suppose, everyone who is into stock-trading is sailing in the same boat. But my husband is not ready to take this fact. He says that he is not going to support this loss. In fact, when I was making money in the market, he was enjoying its fruits and now when I’m passing through a bad market phase, he has washed his hands off.
He is also saying that he would prefer to divorce me than shoulder my losses. It is a question of patience but he does not seems to be supportive at all. Please guide me on what to do?”
This woman apparently poured her heart out on a website launched by city-based psychiatrist Dr Hansal Bhachech for free counselling, claimed to be the first of its kind in the country. She has sought help in this situation where she has not only lost money but is also struggling to keep her marriage.
“Many women who have taken to stocks are now facing twin problems – how to cut down their losses and cut flak from their respective families for losing their money,” says Dr Bhachech.

Some advice for all those married and are yet to be married – Secret for a successful married life…
Once upon a time a married couple celebrated their 25th marriage anniversary. They had become famous in the city for not having a single conflict in their period of 25 years. Local newspaper editors had gathered at the occasion to find out the secret of their well known “happy going marriage”.
Editor: “Sir. It’s amazingly unbelievable. How did you make this possible?”
Husband recalling his old honeymoon days said: “We had been to Shimla for honeymoon after marriage. Having selected the horse riding finally, we both started the ride on different horses. My horse was pretty okay but the horse on which my wife was riding seemed to be a crazy one.
On the way ahead, that horse jumped suddenly, making my wife topple over. Recovering her position from the ground, she patted the horse’s back and said “This is your first time”. She again climbed the horse and continued with the ride. After a while, it happened again. This time she again kept calm and said ” This is your second time” and continued. When the horse dropped her third time, she silently took out the revolver from the purse and shot the horse dead !!
I shouted at my wife: “What did you do you psycho. You killed the poor animal. Are you crazy?” ..
She gave a silent look and said: “This is your first time!!!”.”
Husband:”That’s it. We are happily married ever after. “
