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 5:00am.” And left it where he knew
she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00am 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’s 5:00am. Wake up!”
