The Wife and the Thermometer
Upon arriving home in eager anticipation of a leisurely evening, the
husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she
explained, “It’s the druggist – he insulted me terribly this morning on
Immediately the husband drove downtown to accost 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 I was late getting up. I went without
breakfast and hurried out to the car, but I’ll be damned if I didn’t
lock the house with both house and car keys inside. I had to break a
window to get my keys. Driving a little too fast, I got a speeding
ticket. Then, about three blocks from the store I had a flat tire.
When I finally got to the store there was a bunch of people waiting for
me to open up. I got the store opened and started waiting on these
people, and all the time the darn phone was ringing its head off. Then I
had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make
change, and they spilled all over the floor. I got down on my hands and
knees to pick up the nickels – the phone is still ringing – when I came
up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger
back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it, and half
of them hit the floor and broke. 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 use a rectal thermometer. Well, Mister, I TOLD HER!”
