A friend shared this with me. I would not say I found it humorous, exactly, but it moved me. I didn't know in what other category it would fit.
Nice Men Dorothy Byrne (1989)
I know a nice man who is kind to his wifeand always lets her do what she wants.
I heard of another nice man who killed hisgirlfriend. It was an accident. He pushed herin a quarrel and she split open her skull on thedining-room table. He was such a guilt-riddensight in court that the jury felt sorry for him.
My friend Aiden is nice. He thinks women arereally equal.
There are lots of nice men who help their wiveswith the shopping and the housework.
And many men, when you are alone withthem, say, ‘I prefer women. They are sounderstanding.’ This is another example ofmen being nice.
Some men, when you make a mistake at work,just laugh. They don’t go on about it or shout.That’s nice.
At times, the most surprising men will say atparties. ‘There’s a lot to this Women’s Lib.’Here again is a case of men behaving in a niceway.
Another nice thing is that some men aresympathetic when their wives feel unhappy.I’ve often heard men say, ‘Don’t worry abouteverything so much, dear.’
You hear stories of men who are far more thannice – putting women in lifeboats first, etc.
I think that is all I can say on the subject of nice men. Thank you.
