Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed
that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a
lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed
itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system
activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0,
Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6. I can't seem to keep Wife
1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite
applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but
the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

Dear Troubled User:

This is a very common problem that men complain about. Many people
upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a
Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM
and is designed by its creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also
impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is
impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system
once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0
is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under
Warnings-Alimony-Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0
and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the
background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.
The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE
because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before
the system will return to normal anyway. Wife 1.0 is a great program,
but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several
support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do
Bills 4.2. However, be very careful how you use these programs.
Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag 9.5.
Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife
1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and
Diamonds 5.0! WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install
Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by
Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,
Tech Support

Whatever, do not upgrade Wife 1.0 to Wives 2.0, unless you are a true glutton for punishment.

I heard wife 1.0 runs in the background, and creates freeze ups and restarts, when you install girlfriend 8.0 or even wife 2.0

I got his reply from my wife........

LOL – you don’t need to invest in the flowers 2.1 and the diamonds 5.0 – you installed the Travel 1.0 and already have the Yes Dear and the Apologize installed properly!
