Joke about a fisherman - level 3, A11

A man calls his wife from work. He says, “Honey, I have been asked to go fishing with my boss. We are going to a big lake for a week. This is a perfect opportunity for me to get a better position at work. I have been waiting for it for a long time. Could you please prepare my fishing box and clothes for one week? Please, don’t forget about my new pyjamas. We are leaving from the office and I will stop by the house to pick my things up.

The wife thinks that it is a little strange situation but she is a good wife and she does exactly what her husband asked.

After one week, the husband comes home. He looks a little tired but he is smiling. The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish. He says, “Yes, I caught a lot of fish, but why didn’t you pack my new pyjamas like I asked you to do?”

The wife replies, “I did, they were in your fishing box.”
