A married couple had a quarrel & ended up giving each other the silent treatment.
Two days into their mute argument, the man realized he needed his wife’s help. In order to catch a flight to Chicago for a business meeting, he had to get up at 5 a.m.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5 a.m.”
The next morning the man woke up only to discover his wife was already out of bed, it was 9 a.m. & his flight had long since departed.
He was about to find his wife & demand an answer for her failings when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. He read, “Its 5 a.m. Wake up.”
