The silent treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems and were giving each other the silent treatment.

The next week, the man realised he needed his wife to wake him at 5am for an early flight.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he finally wrote on a piece of paper: “Please wake me at 5am.”

The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9am and he’d missed his flight.

Furious, he was about to go and scream at his wife when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed that said: “It’s 5am. Wake up.”
