Tim and Gina were having some problems at home and were
giving each other the "silent treatment." But then Tim
realized that he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 am
for an early morning drive with some pals to a golf match.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and so
lose the "war"), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake
me at 5:00 am." The next morning, Tim woke up, only to
discover it was 9:00 am and that his friends would have left
for the golf course without him. Furious, he was about to go
and see why his wife hadn't awakened him when he noticed a
piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, "It is 5:00 am. Wake up."
Men simply are not equipped for these kinds of contests
