A couple’s silver wedding anniversary was coming up and the wife kept dropping hints as to what she wanted for an anniversary gift. Her husband did not seem to be getting any of the hints. She finally confronted him and told him very sweetly that their silver anniversary was coming up and that she expected a significant gift. He told her that he was bad at taking hints and that she had better be specific about what she wanted. The wife did not feel nice about straight out asking for a gift. She wanted at least a hint of surprise. She told him that on their anniversary morning she wanted her gift in the garage. It should be red and go from 0 to 200 within 10 seconds. Her husband nodded and left for work. On their anniversary morning, the excited wife rushed to their garage and found a gift-wrapped box in it. She was disappointed but reminded herself that big things come in small packages and proceeded to open it. A loud shriek of rage was heard and the husband was seen fleeing from the house in his bathrobe. The gift? A beautiful red weighing scale.
