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.

nope, men just don't have what it takes to outsmart women 🙂
They think they are so smart sometimes though. Until something like this happens. 🙂
Women are are way smarter!!! hahahahaha!
You go girl. 🙂
Why do they always attack men? Maybe because they are easy. Am I right? Ha,ha,ha.
Have a great Thursday Sandee. See ya.
I'm an equal opportunity attacker Paul. I attack women and men. Today it's just the guys I'm picking on. 🙂
That is cute!! :X
I thought so too Michelle. 🙂
Nothing better than a good laugh in the morning. That was a good one. Makes sense though Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.
Glad you liked this one Marg. We all need a good laugh now and then. 🙂
There are times that the silent treatment is preferable to yelling.
Way better. Hubby and I get along wonderfully and I'm ever grateful about that. 🙂
Yep. One note deserves another. Smart woman. Love this Sandee and hope you have a marvelous day. 😊
Kind of the way I saw it too Marcia. She beat him at his own game. 🙂
I could never keep up a silent treatment for long. Funny joke!
It's not worth it anyway. 🙂
oh silly man….but then silly woman….now he'll have to get even!
Good one Sandee- have a great day!
Yep, that's pretty much how this works Kathe. We both know that. Many couples have to figure that out. 🙂

Happy almost Friday Sandee! Scritches to Little Bit!
Happy almost Friday to you too. Scritches to my two precious babies. 🙂
That's one to laugh about for years after they've made up. 😉
I would hope so Rose. I would hope so. 🙂
Men will lose that one Every.Time! So there.
Smiles and big hugs from sunny San Juan, honey…
Yep, and yet they keep trying and hoping for a different result. Bless their hearts. 🙂
Men can be babes in our hands… I'm just sayin'
Yes, they are babes in our hands indeed. 🙂
It was so easy to predict the outcome. Love it love it love it! c-)
Yep, sometimes they win and sometimes we win. Actually both were losers here. 🙂
Heeheehee! Yes, indeed!
I thought it was pretty clever too. 🙂
Yep, she nailed him this time. 🙂
A rude awakening for sure!
Very rude awakening. 🙂
That was a good one.
Tit for tat.
Tit for tat indeed. Not a good game to play with one another. 🙂
That is too funny!
Thanks for visiting my blog for Stephanie's interview. 😀
You're most welcome. She did a great job. As always. 🙂
This has me laughing out loud! Awesomely done by the wife 🙂 🙂
Yep, women can get even but good. 🙂
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
There is that and you're the only one that mentioned this. Good observation. )
Maybe if he had left her a louder note?
That would have helped Binky. 🙂
shakes my head. laughing.
