A man calls his wife from work. He says, “My boss wants to go fishing with me. We will go for a week. I must go because then I will have better work. Please, can you prepare my fishing box and clothes for one week? Please, don’t forget to prepare my new pyjamas. We will go from the office soon. I will stop at the house and I will take my things.

The wife thinks that it is not a normal situation but she is a good wife. She prepares everything what her husband wanted.

After one week, the husband comes home. He is tired but he smiles. The wife smiles at him too. She asks a question, “How many fish did you see? The husband says, “I saw a lot of fish, but why didn’t you prepare my new pyjamas?”

The wife answers, “I prepared your new pyjamas. They are in your fishing box.”
