A young husband wrote this to a *Systems Analyst -*
_(Marriage Software Div);_
*Dear Systems Analyst,*
I am desperate for some help! I recently upgraded my program from
*Girlfriend 7.0* to *Wife 1.0* and found that the new program began
unexpected _Child Processing_ and also took up a lot of space and
valuable resources. This wasn't mentioned in the _product brochure._
In addition *Wife 1.0* installs itself into all other programs and
launches during systems initialization and then it monitors all other
Applications such as *"Boys' Night out 2.5"* and *"Golf 5.3"* no longer run, and crashes the system whenever selected.
Attempting to operate selected *"Soccer 6.3"* always fails and *"Shopping 7.1"* runs instead.
I cannot seem to keep *Wife 1.0* in the background whilst attempting to
run any of my _favorite applications._ Be it online or offline.
I am thinking of going back to *"Girlfriend 7.0"*, but uninstall doesn't work on this program. Can you please help?
_.... The Systems Analyst replied:_
This is a very common problem resulting from a basic misunderstanding of the functions of the *Wife 1.0 program.*
Many customers upgrade from _Girlfriend 7.0_ to _Wife 1.0_ thinking that
_Wife 1.0_ is merely a *UTILITY AND ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAM.*
Actually, *Wife 1.0* is an _OPERATING SYSTEM_ designed by its *Creator* to run everything on your current platform.
You are unlikely to be able to purge *Wife 1.0* and still convert back
to _Girlfriend 7.0_, as *Wife 1.0* was not designed to do this and it is
impossible to _uninstall, delete or purge the program files from the
System once it is installed._
Some people have tried to install _Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0_ but have
ended up with even more problems. *_(See Manual under Alimony/Child
Support and Solicitors' Fees)._*
Having *Wife 1.0* installed, I recommend you keep it Installed and deal with the difficulties as best as you can.
When any faults or problems occur, whatever you think has caused them, you must run the.........
*C:\ APOLOGIZE\ FORGIVE ME.EXE* Program and avoid attempting to use the _*Esc-Key_ for it will freeze the entire system.
It may be necessary to run *C:\ APOLOGIZE\ FORGIVE ME.EXE* a number of
times, and eventually hope that the operating system will return to
*Wife 1.0,* although a very high maintenance programme, can be very rewarding.
To get the most out of it, consider buying additional Software such as
*"Flowers 2.0"* and *"Chocolates 5.0"* or *"HUGS\ KISSES 6.0"* or
*"TENDERNESS\ UNDERSTANDING 10.0"* or *"even Eating Out Without the Kids
7.2.1"* _(if Child processing has already started)._
*DO NOT* under any circumstances install *"Secretary 2.1"* _(Short Skirt
Version)_ or *"One Nightstand 3.2"* _(Any Mood Version)_, as this is
not a supported Application for *Wife 1.0* and the system will almost
