Tom wakes up feeling under the weather so he calls his boss to say he won’t be in.
“Good morning sir,” he says. “I’m afraid I won’t be coming into the office today. I’m really sick with a stomach ache and headache, and all my joints are aching.
“So, I’m going to stay at home and sleep it off.”
“Oh no,” the boss replies. “You know Tom, I could really use you in the office today, we’ve got a lot of work to get through. You know… when I feel like this I go to my wife and ask her to sleep with me. That usually does the job. You should try that.”
Two hours later Tom arrives at the office and says: “You were totally right boss. I followed your advice and now I feel much better.”
“That’s great,” replied the boss.
“Thanks for the tip!” Tom replies. “Oh and, by the way, nice house you’ve got there!”
