A group of retired deputy sheriffs went on a week long retreat in the mountains.
To save money, they decided to sleep two to a room, but there was a problem because nobody wanted to share a room with Daryl who snored so badly that they knew they would have no chance of a good night sleep.
They decided that it wouldn’t be fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns to share a room with Daryl.
The first deputy sheriff slept in the same room with Daryl and came down to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you?”
He said, “I didn’t get a wink of sleep. Daryl snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.”
The next night it was a different deputy’s turn.
In the morning, the same thing happened. The deputy’s hair was all standing up, his eyes were all bloodshot and he looked like a wreck.
They said, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!”
He said, “Man, that Daryl shakes the roof. I watched him all night, I couldn’t get to sleep at all.”
The third night was Frank’s turn.
Frank was a big burly ex-football player; what you might call a man’s man.
The next morning he came to breakfast bright eyed and bushy tailed. “Good morning guys”, he said.
The other deputies couldn’t believe it! They said, “Man, what happened?”
He said, “Well, we got ready for bed. Then I went and tucked Daryl into bed and kissed him good night. He sat up and watched ME all night long”.
