The Headache

A police officer, though scheduled for all-night duty at the station, was relieved of duty early and arrived home four hours ahead of schedule, at 2 AM.

Not wanting to wake his wife, he undressed in the dark, crept into the bedroom and started to climb into bed.

She sleepily sat up and said, “Mike, dearest, would you go down to the all-night drug store on the next block and get me some aspirin? I’ve got a splitting headache.”

“Certainly, honey,” he said, and feeling his way across the room, he got dressed and walked over to the drug store.

As he arrived, the pharmacist looked up in surprise, “Say,” said the druggist, “Aren’t you Officer Fenwick of the 8th District?”

“Yes, I am,” said the officer.

“Well then, what in the world are you doing in the Fire Chief’s uniform?”

Lesson: sometime it’s better to call home before you arrive there!

    Sometimes it's just not worth going home early 🙂 After reading Steve's comment I think it's more like she likes a man "out" of uniform

      Well, you're right. She does like a man out of uniform. 🙂

      He needs to move away from that headache. 🙂

  9. March 31, 2015 5:39 am at 5:39 am

    While he's at the drug store, he'd better pick up some bandages for the Fire Chief. Ha,ha,ha. Have a fantastic Tuesday Sandee. Say hi to Zane and Little Bits. See ya.
