Never argue with a woman:)


One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, his wife decides to take the boat out.

She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book amidst glorious silence and beauty.

Put, put, put...... along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says,

"Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'"

"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

"You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,'" he informs her.

"I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading"

"Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."

"For reading a book!,"she replies,

"You're in a Restricted Fishing Area," informs her again.

"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.

"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.

"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment."

"Have a nice day ma'am," and he left.

MORAL :

Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

A great story and picture to go with it! Oh I wish I was so smart to make my point at the moment it needs to be made instead of days later after days of wishing I said something and didn't know what to say! Clever woman, clever story, clever Shelagh!
