Remember the lesson most of us learned in elementary school to always follow instructions? Our teachers gave us a test and it had a list of numbered instructions. The very first instruction was to read all the way to the bottom of the list of instructions before beginning the test. Invariably, the majority of the class barrelled on ahead without reading all of the instructions. However, a handful of students finished the test two minutes in, wrote their names on their test, turned it in to the teacher, and left the classroom. As it turns out, the very last instruction on the test said this: “Don’t complete any of the other questions. Put your name on this paper, give it to your teacher, and go on outside and enjoy your playtime.” Follow instructions. It can save you a lot of trouble. Enjoy the hilarious joke below!
Laura’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you a check.
“Oh, by the way, don’t worry about my bulldog, Bob. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot! I repeat, do not talk to my parrot!”
When the repairman arrived at Laura’s apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.
The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing, and name-calling. Finally, the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up you stupid, ugly bird!”
To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Bob!”
