When you’re really proud of something, like a new pair of shoes or a new car, then you can get really angry when someone you care about puts you down. The poor old man in this story experienced just that, and he just can’t seem to catch a break!
I just had to share this one with you. If you liked it, then please send it on. After all, laughter is the best medicine!
An elderly couple, Margaret and Bert, moved to Texas. Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so seeing some on sale, he bought them and wore them home.
Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said to his wife, “Notice anything different about me?”
Margaret looked him over and said, “Nope.”
Bert takes all his clothes off
Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom and undressed completely. He then walked back into the kitchen, completely naked except for the boots.
Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time, “Notice anything different NOW?”
Margaret looked up at his naked body and exclaimed, “Bert, you know what, nothing is different! It’s hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it’ll be hanging down again tomorrow!”
Furious, Bert yelled, “AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT’S HANGING DOWN, MARGARET?”
“Nope,” she replied.
“IT’S HANGING DOWN BECAUSE IT’S LOOKING AT MY COOL NEW BOOTS!”
Without changing her expression, Margaret replied, “Should have bought a hat, Bert. Should have bought a hat.”
SHARE if you laughed!
