Mothers-In-Law, Dentures, Wives & Pliers

Today, the mother-in-law complains that her dentures are hurting her gums and need adjusting. My wife tells me that and asks if I have a pair of narrow pliers. I immediately had the presence of mind to tell her that there is absolutely no way that I am going to try to adjust her mother's dentures. She told me she was going to try to do it. I guess, because she is a dental assistant, she figured she could do it. I got her three pair of needle-nose pliers, a regular pair of pliers, a pair of vice grips and a large hammer. She and her mother got a laugh out of it

Then she tried to adjust them and gave them back to her mother who only complained that they were worse than before (what else could one expect). My wife is claiming she was not able to even budge the metal one little bit and that her mother was being dramatic (that's what she usually tells me when I complain about something). So, tomorrow it will be my luck to have to bring the mother-in-law to the dentist's office, in which my wife works, to have them adjusted. Oh well, I suppose it could be worse, I could have tried to adjust them myself, then when she said they fit even worse than before, I would not have heard the end of it.

All the best,
Glenn B

If it were my mother-in-law that needed her dentures readjusted, I'd have put the gloves on with her and stepped into the ring.
Probably would've gone the full 10 rounds..........she's tough :)
