The Websters’ Busy Day

Mr. and Mrs. Webster were on a holiday shopping excursion. On their way to the car after leaving the store, Mr. Webster complained he was tired from carrying so many packages. Mrs. Webster, the kindly thing that she was, replied, “Quit your complaining Walter! If you gave me just one of your packages, I’d have twice as many as you. And if I gave you one of mine, we’d have the same.”

How many packages were Mr. and Mrs. Webster each carrying?

Bonus question: How long was it before Mr. Webster told Mrs. Webster to stuff it?

Mrs. Webster was carrying 7 packages and poor old Mr. Webster was laden with 5.

And as for the bonus question, I don’t know for sure, but with a sour puss like that around, it couldn’t have been long.
