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 5:00 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 8:29 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 5:00AM. Wake up.’

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

    Why do they always attack men? Maybe because they are easy. Am I right? Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a great Thursday Sandee. See ya.

    There are times that the silent treatment is preferable to yelling.

    • February 5, 2015 at 4:28 pm

      Way better. Hubby and I get along wonderfully and I'm ever grateful about that. πŸ™‚

  23. February 6, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    Hilarious!!! Although looking at the accompanying image I can't but wonder why he didn't set the alarm clock. But then that wouldn't've (is that even a real word?) been funny

    • February 7, 2015 at 7:27 am

      There is that and you're the only one that mentioned this. Good observation. )

  24. February 6, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    Maybe if he had left her a louder note?

    • February 7, 2015 at 7:27 am

      That would have helped Binky. πŸ™‚
