Family story about "Maggie Fox"

After dinner one night, there was a family argument about who was going to wash the dishes.

She pulled all four corners of the tablecloth together, and gathered the plates, food, and utensils into one sack.

She opened the door and slung everything into the backyard.

"The Hell with you!   If you don't want to wash the dishes, you won't eat off the dishes anymore."
