Last week was my retirement and I didn’t feel very well waking up on that morning.
I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say, ”Happy retirement!” and possibly have a small present for me.
As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone ”Happy retirement.”
I thought... Well, that’s marriage for you, but the kids.... They will remember.
My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn’t say a word. So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.
As I walked into my office, my secretary Jane said, ”Good Morning Boss, and by the way Happy retirement!” It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.
I worked until one o’clock, when Jane knocked on my door and said, ”You know, It’s such a beautiful day outside, and it is your retirement, what do you say we go out to lunch, just you and me.” I said, ”Thanks, Jane, that’s the greatest thing I’ve heard all day. Let’s go!”
We went to lunch. But we didn’t go where we normally would go. She chose instead at a quiet bistro with a private table. We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.
On the way back to the office, Jane said, ”You know, It’s such a beautiful day... We don’t need to go straight back to the office, Do We?”
I responded, ”I guess not. What do you have in mind?”
She said, ”Let’s drop by my apartment, it’s just around the corner.”
After arriving at her apartment, Jane turned to me and said, ”Boss, if you don’t mind, I’m going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I’ll be right back.”
”Ok.” I nervously replied.
She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, she came out carrying a huge retirement cake… Followed by my wife, my kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all shouting ” Happy retirement!”
And I just sat there...
On the couch...
A couple was going out for the evening. They’d gotten ready, all dolled-up, dog put out, etc. The taxi arrives and as they start out, the dog shoots back in the house. They don’t want the dog shut in, so the wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes upstairs to chase the dog out. The wife, not wanting it known that the house will be empty explains to the taxi driver, ”He’s just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother.”
A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. ”Sorry I took so long” he says. ”Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching and biting me as I hauled her arse downstairs and tossed her out in the back yard! She better not shit in the vegetable garden again!”
A retiring farmer in preparation for selling his land, needed to rid his farm of animals. So he went to every house in his town. To the houses where the man is the boss, he gave a horse. To the houses where the woman is the boss, a chicken was given. He got toward the end of the street and saw a couple outside gardening. ”Who’s the boss around here?” he asked.” I am.” said the man.” I have a black horse and a brown horse,” the farmer said, ”which one would you like?” The man thought for a minute and said, ”The black one.” ”No, no, no, get the brown one.” the man’s wife said.” Here’s your chicken.” said the farmer.-0+
A old blind man and his seeing eye dog walked into a store. When he gets in, he starts swinging his dog around. Upset by this, the manager of the store demanded to know what he was doing. The blind man calmly replied, ”I’m just lookin` around.”-0+
One night, at the lodge of a hunting club, two new members were being introduced to other members and shown around. The man leading them around said, ”See that old man asleep in the chair by the fire- place? He is our oldest member and can tell you some hunting stories you’ll never forget.” They awakened the old man and asked him to tell them a hunting story. ”Well,” he began, ”I remember back in ’44’, we went on a lion hunting expedition in Africa. We were on foot and hunted for three days without seeing a thing. On the fourth day, I was so tired I had to rest. I found a fallen tree, so I laid my gun down, propped my head on the tree, and fell asleep. I don’t know how long I was asleep when I was awakened by a noise in the bushes. I was reaching for my gun when the biggest lion I ever seen jumped out of the bushes at me like this, ’ROOOAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!......’ I tell you, I just shit my pants.” The young men looked astonished and one of them said, ”I don’t blame you, I would have shit my pants too if a lion jumped out at me.” The old man shook his head and said, ”No, no, not then, just now when I said ’ROOOAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!’ ”-17+
