My boss, a retired Navy admiral, likes to tell this joke about a conversation he had with his wife:

Her: You're the General and I'm the Major.
Him: That's great! Sounds good to me.

In the five and a half years that I've been married I have learned that the things that make you a successful professional woman are often your downfall at home.

 

See, at work we are in charge. When we ask people to do things, they do them. And when something doesn't happen, there are consequences - a stern meeting, a negative performance review, the axe.  At home? Not so much.
