The Silent Treatment



A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:0 0 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at 5:00 AM. He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.  Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.'


Thanks Dick!

It costs a lot to sleep next to the crack. . .

Women are like that.

Vindictive.

Well, she did try to wake him up. Bless his heart and hers too.

Have a fabulous day, Odie. ☺

LOL, women can be like that, or so I've heard.

Wait! This guy's never heard of an alarm clock? An alarm on his smart phone?
A moron like that deserves to be late.
However, unless the wife has her own independent income, it might not have been in her long term financial interests to let hubby miss his plane!

edutcher, have you ever really truly won an argument with the Blonde?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, she sure did with the note.
