The Loving Husband
Several men are in the locker room of a
golf club. A cellular phone on a bench
rings and a man engages the hands-free
speaker function and begins to talk.
Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found
this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership
and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked."
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was
just talking to Janie and found out that the house
I wanted last year is back on the market.
They're asking $980,000 for it."
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer
of $900,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we
can go the extra eighty-thousand if it's what
you really want."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you
MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men in the
locker room are staring at him in
astonishment, mouths wide open.
He turns and asks, "Anyone know who's
phone this is?"
I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine. - Ayn Rand
