Friday Funnies: The Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,Β  “Please wake me at 5:00 AM.” He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’ t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.Β  The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.”

Men are just not equipped for these kinds of contests.

  • LOL. you are right, men can’t compete against the mind of a woman. we’re so brilliant! most of the time.

    they can be pretty smart too because we love them anyway.

  • Lee

    I started laughing as soon as I read the part about the man writing the note because I knew what the punch line was going to be. This is the reason I never even try to win the battle to see who speaks first. Besides, I don’t like silence.

  • LMAO – That is so something I would do !!!!!!!!! Thanks again for the laugh, I love your Friday Funnies.

  • Meleah

    YAY! Look!!
    You are FIRST again!
    You do still love me!!
    I do love MEN.But, they are just not as smart as us!


    Oh I loathe that kind of silence too!

    The Girl:

    I can totally see YOU doing that.
    I know how much you enjoy Friday Funnies.
    I do too! Its a great way to set the tone for the weekend
    (yanno…with laughter)

  • LOL!! I needed that. I miss you so much! I posted a short and sweet one about what’s been going on….Happy Holidays!

  • No they’re def. NOT equiped to deal with that kind of battle. πŸ˜‰

  • Sounds like he found a woman smarter than him.

    How did he manage that?! I mean…the odds!!

  • Meleah

    Chef Mom:

  • Meleah

    Chef Mom:
    He IS wonderful. I have never EVER been this happy. He is my FAVORITE boyfriend of all times. We have been together now EVERY SINGLE DAY for over two weeks. And, Ive been sleeping over his house. A lot.

    Now that is a GREAT idea.

  • Tiffany using her moms itouch

    Very funny always gotta prove a point

  • haha that’s funny.

    Btw, I thought of something, have you tried finding Mr Right in say… a church? People find friends in church all the time you know. Just a thought.

  • Meleah

    Shut Up. I am sooooooo jealous.


    Yes. I certainly did.
    I met him at my country club. And we have been together Every Single Day for Two Weeks In A Row.
    I have been swept off my feet.

    He is a REAL person in THIS POST!!!

  • Doing my usual backward trawl from the hundreds of posts I’ve missed….seriously *missed*

  • cmk

    Sounds just like my house–only the roles could just as easily be reversed! πŸ˜‰

  • dcr

    See, you can tell that’s just a joke. A real man wouldn’t have done that. Real men like gadgets. Ergo, the real man would have set the alarm clock. And, if it was so important, he would also have set a secondary alarm clock, stereo system and computer to wake him up.

  • Meleah

    I was worried about you! I haven’t seen you online at all.
    I thought maybe death by varnish fumes had come true!

    So your husband is smarty?

    That is kind of true. I guess it depends on the man!

  • I use post it notes on my forehead πŸ™‚

  • … and duct tape

  • Meleah

    I am a fan of all thing involving duct tape! And post-it notes.

  • I made a hummer with two cars and duct tape. 5 MPG!

  • Meleah

    I want to drive your car!!

  • It’s surprising that a woman can actually be that silent for that long!!

    Lol, before you rip me to pieces, I’m just kidding!

    Us men need to defend ourselves.

  • Bwaaaaaaaaaahahaahahahahaha!!!

    Ain’t it the truth.

  • I needed this chuckle!!!!! I hope you are feeling better. That Santa hat looks so good on you!

  • Arv

    lol… no comments πŸ™‚

  • Arv

    do drop in an email sometime… take care… cheers…

  • Now that was funny. Bwaahhahhhaa..

  • After their paper fight, did they have paper make-up sex in Speedcat’s Duct Taped Hummer? πŸ˜‰

  • You are so funny! Thanks I needed a good laugh. Had a long day @ work πŸ™

  • Give it up, guys! πŸ˜‰
    And Roshan (“It’s surprising that a woman can actually be that silent for that long!! “) – ask my hubby πŸ˜›

  • That’s a good one! LOL!

  • This sounds like something I would do. Love it!

  • UGH! Unfortunately this one hits close to home! I hate the stoney silent treatment. SAY WHAT YOU MEAN ALREADY!

    Woo! I feel so much better.

    We are equipped though to handle it. A week is a long time in *guy time* to be ignored back. Labido has ended many an arguement at our house.


  • Awesome!

  • Jay

    I love that one! LOL!

  • Stupid, stupid man! LOL!

  • That’s just wrong!

    Just so you know…if that were us, I’d wake you! Tisk, tisk…

    Usually though, I’m the one to break and give in. I can’t stay mad ya know.

  • It took me a minute to get it….I thought he wrote the note wrong! What a dumb bra…I need more coffee….

  • Meleah

    I am glad everyone though this was as funny as I did!

  • I don’t know, that whole “silent treatment” thing hits a little too close to home for me. Some jokes are more like factual statements that are so real they’re not quite humor. Fortunately, its been years since I’ve had one of those episodes last for more than a couple of hours. It’s nice to think you can work things out after having been with the same person for 15 years.
