This is sooo very cool.  I've been doing it since January for Purina, Dollar General, Oil of Olay, NutriSystem, Samsung, Crest and Braun.  Why not get paid for something you like to do, right?  The joy is you get to do it from the comfort of your own home too.

Ten Things Not to Ask Your Wife When You Come Home

Husband!

I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:

1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.
