Silence is golden

On their wedding night, the young bride asked her new husband for $20.00 for their first love-making encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love for the next 30 years - with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals.

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 downsizing and that he'd been let go. It was unlikely that he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, at the age of 55. Thus they were looking at financial hard times.

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed thirty years of deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits which were worth over $2 million. She explained that during the 30 years that she'd charged him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments.

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

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