Why Clean The Shades When You Can Throw Them

| UK | Related | August 2, 2015

(My six-year-old daughter, my mother, and I are at home. My mother is cleaning up and asks my daughter to fetch her something.)

My Mother: “[Me], can you bring me the broom?”

My Daughter: “Why do I have to bring it?”

My Mother: “Because you are my skivvie.”

(In the UK, skivvie is a slang/humourous term for servant.)

My Daughter: “What’s a skivvie?”

My Mother: “A skivvie is like Cinderella.”

My Daughter: “Okay! So if I’m Cinderella, does that make you and [My Wife] the Ugly Sisters?”
