I asked him to sweep the kitchen so I could mop. He asked me if he could sweep the front room and I said don’t worry about it. On second thought I told him to go ahead. He exclaimed, “Yes!!!” When I looked at him strangely, he replied:
So? Housewives like to clean, read books and be alone. I like to sweep.
I don’t know why he mentioned housewives, the comment was just ridiculous.
