The Nagging Wife

The Nagging Wife
An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a
Stay of execution for a client who was due to be hanged for murder at
midnight. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was
feeling worn out and depressed.

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him
about, ‘What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you
been?’ ‘Dinner is cold and I’m not reheating it’. And on and on and on. Too
shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he went and
poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the
bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up
the stairs.

While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told
that her husband’s client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of
execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight.

Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go
upstairs and give him the good news. As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her
husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.

‘They’re not hanging Wright tonight,’ she said. To which he whirled around and screamed,

‘FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON’T YOU EVER STOP?!’
