And the jokes on me
The hub is a very smart man, granted he is not perfect and has been known to completely do something goofy, but in general I can count on him for anything.
Being the 'loving wife' that I am (*cough cough*) when my hub came home boasting that he found his dream computer (dream computer for now) I decided I would buy it for him and surprise him with it. It was a custom built, monster with all the bells and whistles he could imagine. A few weeks go by and true to form, I tell him about it and he is as giddy as a kid on Christmas morning.
The day arrives that I am supposed to pick it up but as soon as I get to work I realize that I forgot the money (envelope with cash in it) at home. I don't typically pay with cash, but I couldn't find my checkbook to this account so I just stopped by the bank the day before and make a withdrawal. This much cash makes me nervous...I set in in a safe place at home and completely forgot about it.
The hub comes to work about an hour or so later than I do so I sent him a quick text message "Bring me the money for your computer when you come to work."
About an hour later I get a phone call ...
Hub - Hey.... I made a mistake.
Me - Really? What might that be? (Thinking he forgot something for DQ)
Hub - Yeah, remember how I needed to stop by the post office and mail my ballot...?
Me - Um, yeah.
Hub - Well....you see...I had both envelopes
Me - Don't even finish that sentence, if you're going to say what I think your going to say.
Hub - They were upside down and I accidental put the wrong one in the box.
Me - OMG - seriously?
Hub - yep, I'm sorry
Me - Which post office are you at?
Hub - It was this one on Main Street and I need to get to work and they are not open.
Me - OMG - that was cash in an unmarked envelope...holy crap. You better hope they give it back, I'll be there in a minute to wait for someone to get there.
Hub - *chuckling* Nah, I didn't really do it, but I almost did...isn't it funny! hahahaha
Me - No, this is not funny!
Hub - Yes, it is funny...do you still want your money or do you want me to hold on to it?
Me - I'll take it.
Yes, people...my hub tried to give me a heart attack by claiming he had 'mailed' away my money. I was not a happy camper to say the least and he had officially signed his death warrant...sometimes, I hate that he is a jokester!
What's the worst joke someone has played on you?
