It gets to lunchtime, the men sit down on a half-constructed skyscraper and the Englishman opens his sandwich bag.
He says “Oh great, I’ve got cheese sandwiches AGAIN”
The Scotsman and Irishman also have cheese sandwiches.
The Englishman says “Tell you what chaps, if I have cheese sandwiches again tomorrow, I’m going to jump off this building.”
The Scotsman and Irishman agree to do the same.
The next day, they all have cheese sandwiches and so, as agreed, they all jump off the building.
Their partners meet up at the funeral.
The Englishman’s wife says “If he’d just told me, I’d have made him some other sandwiches”
The Irishman’s wife says “I agree, all he had to do was ask”
The Scotsman’s wife, who seemed the most distraught, then piped up and says “I don’t know why he jumped, he makes his own sandwiches in the morning”
