Everyone says little white lies every now and then. But really lying to your partner can cause you big trouble – especially when you know each other well enough to get a feel for when the other partner is doing it. This is one such story.
A 53 year old man called home to his wife and told her that his boss had asked him to come along on a fishing trip to Canada.
The husband said over the phone, “We’ll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I’ve been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box? We’re leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up.”
Before hanging up, he hurriedly added, “Oh! And please pack my new silk pajamas.”
The wife replied, “Your silk pajamas?”
The man said, “Yeah, you know, the blue ones. See you in a bit!”
The wife thought that this sounded a bit strange, but being the good wife she is, did exactly what her husband asked.
The following weekend he came home a little tired but otherwise looking good. The wife welcomed him home and gave him a kiss.
“Welcome back honey. Did you catch any fish?”
He said, “Yes! Lots of salmon, some bluegill, and a few swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to do?”
The wife replied, “I did. They’re in the top of your fishing box…”
