Woman accepts initial explanation


A Luton woman has reacted calmly to her husband’s explanation for his late return home from a ‘night out’.

The woman, a 28 year-old primary school teacher, failed to react when her husband explained his late return was due to a long-term friend needing to ‘talk’.

“I was a bit confused, to be honest” said the man, who wishes to remain anonymous.

“Normally, we’d have to go through the minutiae of my story’s detail until it unravelled before her it into the web of lies she clearly believed it to be.”

Misunderstanding

“She just shrugged her shoulders, said ‘Okay’ and went to bed.  It all happened so fast.”

At first he believed that perhaps she had misunderstood him.

“I thought maybe she hadn’t understood me.  Or had at least misheard what I said.”

This theory of miscommunication led to fervent activity on chat forums around the world as men sought to find the elusive phrase the woman ‘might’ have heard.

“If there is a golden get-out-of-jail-free phrase for staying out late, then I’ll find it.” said one intrepid phrase hunter.

“I’m hoping this will be the norm from now on,” continued the man, “but until I know why this happened, I’ll continue to sleep with one eye open.”
