Forgotten Anniversary

A husband was in big trouble when he forgot his wedding anniversary.

His wife told him… “Tomorrow there better be something in the driveway for me that goes zero to 200 in 2 seconds flat”.

The next morning the wife found a small package in the driveway. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.

Funeral arrangements for the husband have been set for Saturday.

Bill’s Box

Bill & Hillary were married 30 years.  When they first got married Bill said, “I am putting a box under the bed.  You must promise never to look in it.”

In all their 30 years of marriage Hillary never looked.  However, on the afternoon of their 30th anniversary curiousity got the best of her & she lifted the lid & peeked inside.  In the box were 3 empty beer cans & $1874.25 in cash.  She closed the box & put it back under the bed.  Now she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why.

That evening they were out for a special dinner.  After dinner Hillary could no longer contain her curiousity & she confessed, saying “I am so sorry.  For all these years I kept my promise & never looked into the box under our bed.  However, today the temptation was too much & I gave in.  But now I need to know why do you keep the empty cans in the box?”

Bill thought for a moment & said, “I guess after all these years you deserve to know the truth.  Whenever I was unfaithful to you I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind me not to do it again.”

Hillary was shocked, but said, “I am very disappointed & saddened but I guess after all those years away from home on the road with your job, temptation does happen & I guess 3 times is not that bad.”  They hugged & made their peace.”

A little while later Hillary asked Bill, “Why do you have all that money in the box?”

Bill answered, “Whenever the box filled with empties, I cashed them in.”
