Would you like that in writing?

A couple had been arguing and arrived at the point where they were giving each other the “silent treatment”.

Later that evening, the man remembered that he needed to be up by 5:00 a.m. for an early morning business flight.  His wife was a relatively light sleeper, and in the past he had relied on her to wake him.  What to do?

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5:00 a.m.” and left the note where he knew she would find it.

The next morning the man woke up, alone in bed, only to discover it was 8:00 a.m. and he had missed his flight.  Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t roused him, when he noticed a piece of paper by his pillow.  It read, “It’s 5:00 a.m. Wake up!”
