An attorney walked home worn out and depressed, after his motion for stay of execution for his death row client was denied.
As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started shouting on him ,
“Where have you been? Do you know what time it is ? Dinner is cold and I’m not reheating it “. She rambled on and on.
Too shattered to pay attention,he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot bath.
Once done, he got up slowly, took the towel from the towel bar and was drying himself when the phone rang.
The wife answered and was told that her husband’s client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution.
Wright would not be hanged tonight.
She decided to go up stairs and give him the good news.
As she opened the bathroom door,
she was greeted by the sight of her husband, putting the towel in the stand and said
“They’re not hanging Wright”
He whirled around and screamed,
‘FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON’T YOU EVER STOP?’
