Silence is Golden
Moshe says to his friend David, "I've been doing a lot of thinking recently and based on many years of marriage, I've come to a remarkable conclusion."
"This I want to hear already," says David. "So tell me about your wonderful conclusion."
"I've discovered," says Moshe, "that if a husband only slightly upsets his wife, it's almost certain that she will shout at him. Fair enough! But if the husband continues to upset her, she won't shout louder but instead will give him the silent treatment."
But before Moshe can continue, David says to him, "Sometimes it’s worthwhile putting in a little extra effort."
