The Wife Fell Out
A man who had a little too much to drink is driving home from the city one night, and of course, his car is weaving all over the road.
A policeman pulls him over. “So,” says the policeman to the driver, “where have you been?”
“Why, I’ve been to a party of course,” slurs the drunk.
“Well,” says the policeman, “it looks like you’ve had quite a few drinks this evening.”
“I did all right,” the drunk says with a smile.
The policeman says, “do you realize that your wife fell out of the car several miles back?”
“Oh, thank heavens,” sighs the drunk. “For a minute there, I thought I’d gone deaf”
A man attends a church prayer meeting. The pastor asks if anyone has a prayer request for the church. The man gets up and requests “Please pray for my hearing.” So, the pastor thinking that the man suffers from deafness leads the congregation in prayer for the man’s hearing. When he completes the prayer, the pastor then asks the man does he feel any different about his hearing.
The man says, “I don’t know. It’s not until next Wednesday.”
A deaf woman who worked at a factory, she didn’t know how to read or write, the factory accountant would take her thumb impression before paying her salary. This arrangement went on for years, the woman went on leave to get married, she rejoined the factory and started working. As usual on the salary day she stood in the line to collect her salary, instead of putting a thumb impression she gave her index finger impression. The accountant thought that she must have injured her thumb and did not give it much thought.
The following month she again gave her index finger instead of a thumb impression, the accountant thought that he should check with her as even after a month her thumb has yet not healed, he gestured and somehow managed to ask her if her thumb was badly hurt as he could not see anything wrong. She replied calmly that after marriage her surname has changed so the thumb impression has changed to index finger!
