A husband and wife were going through a rocky phase and were giving each other the silent treatment.
One day, at the height of hostilities, he realised that he needed his wife to wake him at 5 a.m. so that he could catch an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he wrote on a piece of paper: “Please wake me at 5 a.m.”
The next morning, he woke to discover that it was 9 a.m. and that he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to confront his wife when he noticed a piece of paper on his pillow.
The paper read: “It is 5 a.m. Wake up.”
