Batter Up

Batter Up

A wife returns home early from work and thinks she hears some noises in the bedroom. She quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the blanket, she sees four legs instead of just her husband's two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can.

Once she's done teaching the lesson, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink. As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine. He says, "Hi darling, your parents made a surprise visit and had been driving all day, so I let them take a nap in our bedroom. Did you say hello?"

Moral of the Story: Always know the facts before you act.
