Get a Room!
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
A man has been driving all night. He decides to stop in the next town for a few hours and get some sleep.
As luck would have it, just before dawn he happens onto a park at the edge of town with plenty of parking. Just his kind of luck, the park is frequented by early morning joggers.
He leaned back in his seat and fell asleep almost instantly.
Suddenly he was awakened by a jogger who was knocking on his window. ‘Excuse me, sir,’ says the jogger. ‘Do you have the time?’
The man looks at his car clock and says, ‘6:15.’ The jogger says thanks and leaves.
The man settled back again, falling asleep almost instantly.
He is deeply asleep when he is again awakened by a jogger who asks, "Excuse me sir. Do you have the time?’ asks the jogger.
"7:05!" he snapped.
To prevent any more interruptions the man writes a note saying "I do not know the time!" and sticks it to his window.
He leaned back, took a deep breath, and fell immediately into another deep sleep.
A knocking on the window had him struggling to get up through the deep sleep well into which he had fallen. He looked up, and yes, there was another jogger at his window. He rolled down the window and said, "What the heil do you want! The sign says I don't know the time!"
‘Excuse me, sir,’ says the jogger. ‘It’s 7:40".
The last anyone saw of them, the jogger had about a 15 yard lead but the driver was gaining.
