Two guys and a girl were sitting at a bar talking about their lives.

The first guy said, “I’m a YUPPIE. You know, Young Urban Professional.”

The second guy responded, “I’m a DINK. You know, Double Income No Kids.”

They then asked the woman, “What are you?”

She replied: “I’m a WIFE. You know, Wash, Iron, Fuck, Etc.”
