When everybody on earth was dead and waiting to enter Paradise God appeared and said, ‘I want the men to make two lines’
‘One line for the men who were the true heads of their households – and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women.’
Then he said, ‘I want the women to report to St Peter’.
Soon the women were gone and there were two lines of men waiting in front of God.
The line of the men who were dominated by their wives was thousands of miles long – in the other line of men (those who were truly heads of their households) there was only one man.
God said to the long line,
‘You men should be ashamed of yourselves – I created you to be the head of your household. You have been disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose.’
‘Of all of you before me only one obeyed. You should learn from him.’
God then turned to the one man and asked,
‘How did you manage to be the only one in this line?’
The man replied,
‘My wife told me to stand here !!’
