A husband is at home watching a football game when his wife interrupts,
"Honey, could you fix the light in the hallway?  It's been flickering for
weeks now."  He looks at her and says angrily, "Fix the light?  Now?  
Does it look like I have a G.E. logo printed on my forehead?  I don't
think so."

"Well then, could you fix the fridge door?  It won't close right." To
which he replied, "Fix the fridge door?  Does it look like I have
Westinghouse written on my forehead?  I don't think so."

"Fine,"  she says, "Then could you at least fix the steps to the front
door?  They're about to break."

"I'm not a damn carpenter and I don't want to fix the steps,"  He says.  
"Does it look like I have Ace Hardware written on my forehead?  I don't
think so.  I've had enough of you.  I'm going to the bar."

So he goes to the bar and drinks for a couple of hours. He starts to feel
guilty about how he treated his wife and decides to go home and help out.  
As he walks into the house, he notices the steps are already fixed.  As he
enters the house, he sees that the hall light is working.  As he goes to
get a beer, he notices the fridge door is fixed. "Honey, how'd this all
get fixed?"

She said, "Well, when you left, I sat outside and cried.  Just then a nice
young man asked me what was wrong and I told him. He offered to do all the
repairs, and all I had to do was either screw him or bake him a cake."

He said, "So, what kind of cake did you bake him?"

She replied, "Hellooooo!... do you see Betty Crocker written on my 
forehead?  I don't think so."
