    That's When the Fight Started

    My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

    My wife asked, "Do you know her?"

    "Yes," I sighed. "She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since."

    "Goodness gracious!" said my wife, "who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

    And that's when the fight started...

    George, that one's great.

    My first "real" girlfriend now has a "partner" if you know what I mean.

    I, like the character in your story, figured that I spoiled her for any other man.

    My wife, like the wife in the story, takes a different view, something like I drove the poor lady over the edge.

    Sigh....

    Here's another

    I rear-ended a car, this morning, on my way to work.

    So there we were, standing alongside the road, steam rolling from my punctured radiator, and slowly the other driver got out of his car. And you know how sometimes you just get sooo-stressed-out that real-life stuff seems to get really funny?

    Yeah, well, I could NOT believe it . . . The other driver was a DWARF, only about 3 feet tall! So, he storms over to my car, looks up at me, and loudly proclaims, 'I AM NOT HAPPY!'

    So, I looked down at him and said, 'Okay, well, which one are you then?'

    And THAT'S when the fight started .

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my drivers license to verify my age. I searched my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but i would have to go back home and return later.

    The woman said "Unbutton your shirt". So I opened my shirt, revealing my curly silver hair.

    She said "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me" and she processed my application.

    When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office and she said "You should have dropped your pants, you might have gotten disability too."

    And that's when the fight started.

    And another I found

    Well Wednesday was my 10th year anniversary and i forgot. My wife took it okay and hasnt said a word to me about it or really anything else for 2 days now. So tonite when i got home she finally broke and spoke. Said i had to make up for it by taking her some place expensive so I took her to the gas station.

    And thats when the fight started.
