The Devoted Wife

A devoted wife had spent her lifetime taking care of her husband. Now he had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to his senses, he motioned for her to come near him. As she sat by him, he said: “You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?”
“What, my dear?” she asked gently.
You’re a goddamn jinx!”

Phone Line

A young businessman had just started his own firm.
He had just rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques. He saw a man come into the outer office. Wishing to appear important, the businessman picked up the phone and started to talk about huge amounts of money. Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, “Can I help you?”
“Yeah, I’ve come to activate your phone lines.”
