Have a laugh

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

Jones came into the of­fice an hour late for the third time in one week and found the boss wait­ing for him. “What's the story this time, Jones?” he asked sar­cas­ti­cally. “Let's hear a good ex­cuse for a change.” Jones sighed. “Ev­ery­thing went wrong this morn­ing, Boss. My wife de­cided to drive me to the sta­tion. She got ready in ten min­utes, but then the draw­bridge got stuck. Rather than let you down, I swam across the river, as you can see my suit is still damp, ran out to the air­port, got a ride on Mr. Greg­son's he­li­copter, landed on top of his sky­scraper, and ran over here.” “You'll have to do bet­ter than that, Jones,” said the boss, ob­vi­ously dis­ap­pointed. “No woman can get ready in ten min­utes.”
