WHAT! I been working all day, keeping this city in good shape and supporting this family, for what, to starve at night, you have one job, one job!
I'm so sorry hunny, it's just I have to do more than cooking food, I too need to make sure this house is in good shape.
Never talk back to me! Hurry up and set dinner up and pour me some hooch will ya.

It's hard to explain, once you grow up you will soon understand about the status of us women compared to men.
There is nothing we can do about this Caroline, it is what it is, i'm sorry you have to go though that everyday.
mother, we really have to do something about father, he comes home zozzled from work every day and abuses you.
How come, big brother gets to go to school and I don't mother?
