Sometimes we hear about people who are willing to throw away a relationship for selfish reasons. When doing so, they may not even consider the feelings of the other person.
In the following story that has people laughing everywhere, it seems as if that was the case. The husband let his wife down when he cheated on her, but he didn’t do so in a kind or gentle way. He wrote her a matter-of-fact note.
He may have been trying to make his point, but he didn’t expect to get a note back from his wife. You’ll enjoy this joke.
My Dear Wife,
Being 57 years old, you will certainly understand that I have certain needs that you cannot satisfy. I value you as a good wife and am very happy with you. Having read this letter, I hope you won’t misinterpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 22-year-old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel.
Don’t worry, I’ll be home before midnight.
He found the following letter on the dining room table when he returned home late that night:
I received your letter and thank you for being honest about the fact that I am 57 years old. You are also 57 years old, so let me take this opportunity to remind you. As you know, I teach math at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. Like your secretary, he is young and virile.
Being a successful businessman who is very knowledgeable about math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, but with one small difference: 22 goes into 57 a lot more times than 57 goes into 22. Therefore, I won’t be home until tomorrow.
