a man comes home to his wife, extremely drunk after his company’s yearly Christmas party. He stumbles into bed – but when he wakes up the next morning, he’s in for a surprise.
John woke up with a huge hangover the day after his company’s yearly Christmas party. He doesn’t normally drink a lot, but at this particular party the drinks were flowing like never before. John couldn’t remember how he made it home from the party, everything was a blur. To make things worse, he felt completely awful, and had no idea whether he’d done something stupid while he was drunk.
When he eventually managed to pull himself out of bed and open his eyes, he saw a glass of water and some headache tablets on his bedside table. Next to the glass of water was a single red rose. John stood up and saw his clothes on a chair in front of him, neatly folded. He looked around the room and saw that everything was perfectly clean, as if it had just been tidied up. He walked around the house and saw that it was the same everywhere – the entire house was clean and tidy. John took some headache tablets and gasped when he saw himself in the bathroom mirror.
Over one eye was a massive bruise. He also saw a small note on the lower corner of the mirror. The little note was covered in hearts and he could see that his wife had even left a red lipstick kiss on the note. The note said:
“Hi sweetie! Breakfast is on the table. I’m going to do some grocery shopping so I can cook your favorite dinner tonight. I love you!”
John stumbled into the kitchen and sure enough, breakfast was there on the table. Scrambled eggs, freshly brewed coffee and today’s paper lay on the table. John’s son was sitting at the table eating.
“Son, do you have any idea what happened last night?”
His son replied:
“Yep, you came home at three in the morning, totally drunk. You fell on the hall table and broke it. Then you threw up all over the floor and ran into a door. That’s probably how you got that black eye…”
Confused, John asked his son:
”OK… So why is everything so clean and tidy here. I have a rose upstairs, breakfast on the table and your mom is out buying dinner?”
His son replied: “Oh yeah, that… when mom took you up to bed and started undressing you, you yelled out ‘Leave me alone, I’m a married man!!’ ”
Fixing a broken table costs around $40…
Breakfast and coffee around $5..
Two headache tablets, a few cents?
Saying the right thing at the right time: Priceless!
