Somewhere in a call center a phone rang. A voice on the other end of the phone said, “Hello, you have reached the Men’s Help Line, my name is Harry. How can I help you?”
The caller replied:
“Hi Harry, I really need your advice on a serious problem. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. You know, just the usual signs: The phone rings and when I answer, the caller hangs up. Plus, she goes out with the girls a lot. I usually try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home, but I always fall asleep”.
There was a brief pause (for breath), and then the caller continued:
“Anyway, last night about midnight, I woke up and she still hadn’t come home. So, I hid in the garage, behind my boat and waited for her. When she came home, she got out of someone’s car, buttoning her blouse. Then she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on”.
There was another brief pause, and the caller continued again:
“It was at that moment, while crouching behind the boat, that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard motor mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld, or do I need to replace the whole thing?”
You know, something tells me this is based on a real event. What do you think?
