After wedding a young couple
rented a town house in a large complex.
Concerned about a leak in
an upstairs bathroom, young woman called the manager several times, but
Finally her husband reached
the manager and, noting the seriousness of the problem, said, " My wife
is afraid the bathtub will fall through the kitchen."
"Oh, no," the manager quickly
replied. "The bathtub falls through the living room."
One day Mary, the waitress,
reported for service with a black eye.
"Why, Mary," said her old
sympathetic restaurant manager, "what a bad eye you have!"
"Well, there's one consolation.
It might have been worse."
"You might have had both
of them hurt."
"Yes'm. Or worse'n that:
I might not ha' been married at all."
