Know when to keep your mouth shut.

On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and
asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter.
In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.

This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30
years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes
and other incidentals that she needed.

Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in
a very drunken state.

During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going
through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go.
It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position
that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they
were financially ruined.

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty
years of steady deposits and interest totalling nearly $1 million.
Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were
worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest
depositors in the bank.

She explained that for the more than three decades she had "charged" him for
sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments.

Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her
husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his
voice and blurted out,
"If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!"

That's when she shot him.

You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut.

Another one.

That reminds me of the newlywed husband who got up to go to work the morning after the wedding and left a $20 bill on his pillow. Just as he started to turn the doorknob to leave he realized what he did and ran back to the bedroom to retrieve the $20. On the pillow was $15 change. Ouch!
