Eh-hum # 177

Saw a rather annoying commercial on TV recently.

A woman, a housewife, was sitting on the couch and folding the laundry. Based on the smile on her face, she was quite happy how clean the clothes turned out. After she has finished, her preteen son comes in the living room and throws his jacket over her head. She protests and her face turns from serene to irritated. But her husband, who was lying on the floor and watching television, laughs at their son's antics and prevents her from scolding him. The woman stops and ponders on what just happened. What could have made her change her mood so easily? TADA! Its an ad for a medicine for menopausal women experiencing hot flashes and mood swings.

So, based on this commercial, it was not the son's bad behaviour or her husband's indifference that pissed her off, it was her hormones. Hmmmm...right...that made SO much sense.
