It was Friday evening, it had been payday and Bill had really had a tough week.
So on leaving the office, he decided that instead of going home, he would stay out for the entire weekend partying with his buddies and in the process blow his entire weeks salary.
When he finally arrived home on Sunday evening he was confronted by his angry wife and, needless to say, she hurled abuse at him for nearly two hours in a tirade befitting his irresponsible actions.
Finally, as she stopped shouting at him, his wife said to him, “How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?”
“That would be fine with me,” Bill responded unwisely.
Monday went by and Bill didn’t see his wife.
Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.
However, on Thursday, the swelling had gone down sufficiently for Bill to see her a little out of the corner of his left eye.
