The First to Break the Silence

Man and Woman mad at each other.jpgThe First to Break the Silence

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

Suddenly the man realizes 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 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. 

Furious, he was about to go see why his wife hadn’t wakend him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.” 

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.
