Marc: Who was that?
Carla: It was your mother – again. She wanted to give me another piece of unsolicited advice about housekeeping. She’s called five times this week already.
Marc: She’s just trying to be helpful.
Carla: I wish she’d do it without being so critical. I feel like she enjoys finding fault with everything I do.
Marc: She’s a little overeager to help, that’s all. Don’t think of it as her interfering. Think of it as her giving you support. She isn’t like your mother.
Carla: What do you mean?
Marc: What do I mean?! She’s constantly giving me advice on how to be a better husband.
Carla: Well, we just got married and she wants our marriage to be the best it can be.
Marc: I know, but your mother has a really sharp tongue and she doesn’t hold back. She butts in whenever I’m trying to do something to tell me how to do it better.
Carla: Just like your mother, she’s only trying to help.
Marc: With her constant sarcastic comments?
Carla: That’s just her sense of humor. She doesn’t mean anything by it. She likes you.
Marc: She has a strange way of showing it.
Carla: All of this talk about mothers-in-law is getting our blood up. At this rate, we won’t be able to follow the best piece of marriage advice we’ve received so far.
Marc: Which was?
Carla: Don’t go to bed angry.
Marc: Who’s angry?
