Approximate Playing Time: 12 minutes

Gary has the perfect wife—except for one thing. She has a habit of not closing doors and drawers after she opens them. At first he takes the subtle approach, then he takes a more forceful approach by dramatically closing the doors she leaves open and finally he appeals to her concern that he might hurt himself if she doesn’t close a cabinet door. When he puts child-proof locks on everything, she interprets it as an over eager desire on his part to prepare for the children they don’t yet have. Cheryl has her own issues and tells him they must talk. She says he never puts the lids on jars or caps on pens or tops on pots or clips on chips after he’s used them. And, she says, he has become very compulsive about closing doors and drawers in the house. As they list each other’s quirks and the annoyance they cause, they realize that neither one is likely to change. They are at an impasse until Cheryl hits upon the half-way solution. $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $20 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
