A young man called Paul invited his mother for dinner, during the meal, his mother couldn’t help but notice how attractive Paul’s flat mate, Tracy was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two and this only made her more curious.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Paul and his flat mate than met the eye.
Reading his mums thoughts, Paul volunteered, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Tracy & I are just flat mates”.
About a week later, Tracy came to Paul saying, “Ever since your Mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the frying pan, you don’t suppose she took it do you?”
“Well I doubt it, but I’ll email her just to be sure” said Paul. So he sat down and wrote:
I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU “DID” TAKE THE FRYING PAN FROM MY HOUSE, I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU “DID NOT” TAKE THE FRYING PAN, BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT, IT HAS BEEN MISSING EVER SINCE YOU WERE HERE FOR DINNER.
Several days later, Paul received an email from his mother which read:
I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU “DO” SLEEP WITH TRACY, AND I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOU “DO NOT” SLEEP WITH TRACY, BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT, IF SHE WAS SLEEPING IN HER OWN BED, SHE WOULD HAVE FOUND THE FRYING PAN BY NOW.
Lesson of the day, NEVER LIE TO YOUR MOTHER
