I was an Upset Husband................For all HealthUnlockders

I was an Upset Husband

Upon arriving home, my wife was met by me crying on he door step.Tearfully I explained ''It's the pharmacist.I have been insulted terribly by him this morning over the phone.''

Immediately she got back in her car and drove to the pharmacy for an apology from the pharmacist.Before my wife could say a word or two,the pharmacist told her ''now just a minute ,listen to my side of it.This morning the alarm failed to go off,so I was late getting up.I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car,just to realize that I'd locked the house with both the house and car keys inside and had to break a window to get my keys''

''Then driving a little too fast,I got a speeding ticket.Later when I was about three streets from the pharmacy,I had a flat tyre.When I finally got here a queue of people were waiting for me to open up.I got the pharmacy opened and started serving these people,all the time the darn phone was ringing and ringing.''

He continued ''I had to open a bag of pennies for change for the till.

I dropped them all over the floor.I had to get down on my hands and knees to pick them up and the phone was still ringing.When I came up I cracked my head on the open till drawer,which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of tablet bottles on it.Half of them hit the floor and broke.''

''Meanwhile.the phone was still ringing with no let up,and finally I got back to answer it.It was your husband.He wanted to know how to use a Rectal Thermometer.

And beleive me missus,as God is my witness,all I did was tell him''
