When it comes to women, there is something that most men know and if they don’t know yet, they will figure it out at some point in their life. Women have something special and it is known as intuition and when a man is not forthcoming with a woman, that intuition can get him in a lot of trouble. Of course, men may have intuition to a certain extent as well but when compared with a woman’s intuition, it rarely ever stands up to the test.
The problem is, some men never quite really learn about this phenomena and even if they’ve had the opportunity to learn it a number of times in their life, they may still end up falling short of the mark. That fact becomes obvious in the following story about a man who went on a vacation with his supervisor. Not only does it perfectly illustrate the fact that you should never come up against a clever woman, it does so in a way that will have you smacking your forehead.
One day, the husband called his wife, and asked:
“Honey I’ve been asked to go fishing in China with my boss for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get the promotion. So could you please pack enough clothes for a week, set out my rod & fishing box. We’re leaving from office & I’ll swing by the house to pick my things. Oh, and please pack my new blue silk pyjamas!”
His wife immediately noticed that something was not right with the lousy excuse her husband managed to invent for the next week, but she decided to be a good wife and do what she was asked to.
After a week, her husband returned home, and looked tired, but explained to her that he was happy that he has done a good job by attending the fishing party.
The woman wanted to know all in details, and asked about the boss, the weekend, the other colleagues, if they had caught fish, and so on. Her husband answered: “Yes, Lots of Salmon, Blue gill & a few Swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my blue silk pyjamas?”
The woman replied: “I did…..They’re in your fishing box”.
