Sometimes it's not what they say, but it is how they say it ...
A lawyer arrived home late after a very trying day at work. He has spent his day trying to get a stay of execution for a client who was due to be hanged at midnight for murder. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed, as he felt certain that the man had been framed for the murder he had been convicted of committing.
As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, "What time of night is this to be getting home? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it for you!"
She went on and on and on.
Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long, shower, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs.
While he was in the shower, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution -- 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!?"
Thanks to Christie for this one...
