Gender relations have come so far; we’ve finally achieved equal pay, equal treatment and equal respect within the household.
I’m sorry, I forgot I don’t write for The Onion.
Instead, a New York woman has to make 300 sandwiches for her boyfriend in order for him to propose to her.
Stephanie Smith, a writer for the prestigious “Page Six” of the New York Post, is demanded to make a sandwich for her boyfriend, Eric Schulte, “without fail every morning.”
“Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring,” Eric said to Stephanie after the first one she made for him.
Stephanie took his words to heart, and has gone on to make him a sandwich everyday, documenting her creations on her blog, 300sandwiches.com.
She’s 176 sandwiches in, and I’ll say, those sandwiches look pretty damn good. I don’t know if it would take 300 for me to put a ring on her finger!
Regardless of how tasty her sandwiches look, the whole situation is rather cringe-worthy, but at least these two seem to be happy with each other, no matter how far back the agreement sets gender relations.
A relationship shouldn’t be quantified by the number of sandwiches made, but rather the quality of the sandwiches held in the heart. Or something.
