This thing About Assumptions

Two weeks ago was Jeff’s 35th birthday, and he wasn't feeling too hot that morning anyway. He went to breakfast knowing his wife would be pleasant and say "Happy Birthday," and probably have a present for him.

She didn't even say "Good Morning," let alone any "Happy Birthday." Jeff thought, "Well, that's wives for you, the children will remember."

The children came in to breakfast and didn't say a word. When Jeff started to the office, he was feeling pretty low and despondent. As he walked into his office, his secretary, Janet, said, "Good morning, boss. Happy birthday." and he felt a little better; someone had remembered.

Jeff worked until noon. Then, Janet knocked on his door and said "You know, it's such a beautiful day outside and it's your birthday; let's go to lunch, just you and me."

He said, "by George, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day. Let's go."

They went to lunch. They didn't go where they normally go; they went out to the country to a little private place. They had two martinis and enjoyed lunch tremendously.

On the way back to the office, she said, "You know, it's such a beautiful day. We don't need to go back to the office, do we?" "No, I guess not.", Jeff said.

She said, "Let's go to my apartment." After arriving at her apartment she said, "Boss, if you don't mind, I think I'll go into the bedroom and slip into something more comfortable."

"Sure," Jeff excitedly replied. She went into the bedroom and, in about six minutes, she came out carrying a big birthday cake, followed by Jeff’s wife, children, and dozens of our friends, all singing Happy Birthday.

And there he sat... on the couch... naked...
