A very shy guy goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage, he finally goes over to her and asks, tentatively, ”Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?”
She responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, ”NO! I won’t sleep with you tonight!” Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table.
After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, ”I’m sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I’m a graduate student in psychology, and I’m studying how people respond to embarrassing situations.”
To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, ”What do you mean $200?!”
A woman’s husband comes home hammered every night and she always yells at him before going to bed alone.
One day she decides to try some reverse psychology. When her husband staggers in that night, she’s waiting for him in her best lingerie. She sits him in an armchair and gives him a backrub.
It’s getting late, big boy, she says after a few minutes. Why don’t we go upstairs to bed.
We might as well, slurs the husband. I’m going to be in trouble when I get home, anyway.
A young woman took her troubles to a psychiatrist. ”Doctor, you must help me,” she pleaded. ”It’s gotten so that every time I date a nice guy, I end up in bed with him. And then afterward, I feel guilty and depressed for a week.”
”I see,” nodded the psychiatrist. ”And you, no doubt, want me to strengthen your will power and resolve in this matter.”
”For God’s sake, NO!” exclaimed the woman. ”I want you to fix it so I won’t feel guilty and depressed afterward.”
”Father, how am I going to tell my husband that I am still a virgin?”
”My child, you have been a married woman for many years. You have had three husbands! Surely that cannot be.”
”Well, father, my first husband was a psychologist, and all he wanted to do was talk, and the next one was in construction and he always said he’d get to it tomorrow. The last one was a gynecologist and all he did was look. But this time, father, I’m marrying a lawyer and I’m sure I’m going to get screwed.”
At a southern university, students in the psychology program were attending their first class on emotional extremes.
”Just to establish some parameters,” said the professor to the student from Arkansas, ”what is the opposite of joy?”
”Sadness,” said the student.
”And the opposite of depression?” he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.
”Elation,” she said.
”And you sir,” he said to the young man from Texas, ”what about the opposite of woe?”
The Texan replied, ”Sir, I believe that would be ’giddy up’.”
