A woman goes to the doctor, worried about her husband’s temper.

The doctor asks: “What’s the problem?”

The woman says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my husband seems to lose his temper for no reason. It scares me.”

The doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your husband is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until he either leaves the room or calms down.”

Two weeks later the woman comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The woman says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

The doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick.”

  1. This is such an inappropriate “joke”. There is so much evidence that victims of domestic violence are often made to feel that it is their fault that their partner abuses them, and this “joke” reinforces that idea. The fact is that abuse, whether verbal, emotional, physical or sexual is NOT the fault of the victim.

    • Maureen Hogan How the hell does that promote domestic violence & would you say the same thing if the roles were reversed.

    • Maybe Maureen women in domestic violence situations need to get a backbone and start telling there partners from the start that there behaviour is not acceptable.
      I have lived with a Vietnam Veteran with PTSD for 43 years and he got told very often sometimes several times a day to watch how he was acting or find somewhere else to live.

    • Of course I would say the same, Susanne. I did not bring gender into my statement at all. As for promoting domestic violence, it is reinforcing the idea that the victim, (in this case of verbal violence), is to blame. The idea that the victim of abuse is at fault is one of the reasons that violence escalates. There has been an ongoing campaign to educate people about this issue.

  2. That is disgusting. Condoning domestic violence and worst of all making it the fault of the victim. Can’t believe this. Says she’s scared. Goes to GP for help – please point out the joke.
