A man returned to work after a two week vacation and one of his fellow workers asked him whether he had a good time.
“Well”, the man began, “Would you believe I spent the whole two weeks helping my wife to decorate all the rooms in our house, We spent the whole time painting the walls”.
He positively groaned as he related his tale of woe and his lost vacation time.
“Oh no”, his colleague replied, “Does she do that sort of thing often?”
“Well”, the man replied, “put it this way. When we moved into our house a few years ago, the guest room was nine by twelve. Now it’s eight by eleven!”
