Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife.
Tearfully she explained, It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone. I had to call multiple times before he would even answer the phone.[/SIZE]
Immediately, the husband drove downtown toconfront the druggist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or two,the druggist told him, "Now, just a minute, listen
to my side of it. "
This morning the alarm failed to go off, so Iwas late getting up.
I went without breakfast and hurried out tothe car, just to realize that I locked the house
with both house and car keys inside and had tobreak a window to get my keys.
Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket.
Later, when I was about three blocks from thestore, I had a flat tire.
When I finally got to the store there was a bunchof people waiting for me to open up. I got the store
opened and started waiting on these people, and allthe time the darn phone was ringing off the hook.
He continued, Then I had to break a roll of nickelsagainst the cash register drawer to make change,
and they spilled all over the floor. I had to getdown on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels
and the phone was still ringing.
When I came up I cracked my head on the opencash drawer, which made me stagger back against
a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it.Half of them hit the floor and broke.
Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up,and I finally got back to answer it.
It was your wife. She wanted to know how to usea rectal thermometer.
And believe me mister, as God is my witness,All I did was tell her.
