There was a young Christian couple that had an argument one morning
before leaving for work. The wife couldn't get her dress zipped up
in back, so she backed up to her husband and motioned for him to zip
up her zipper. The husband was concerned about an important business
meeting. "I'll show you zipping", he thought, and briskly whipped
it up and down the slide till it broke. He had to cut her out of her
favorite dress, which didn't exactly make her happy with him.
They went their separate ways to work. Both boiling mad at each other.
The wife did a slow-burn all day. When she got home that evening, she
walked into the garage and saw two legs sticking out from under the
car, and assumed her husband was under the car fixing something.
She decided her moment of REVENGE had come. She leaned over, grabbed
the pants zipper, and whipped it up and down several times. Satisfied, she walked
into the kitchen, where she found her husband standing by the sink.
Sheepishly, she asked him, "Who is in the garage, under the car?"
She was told it was a neighbor who had come over to help work on the
car. The acutely embarrassed wife asked her husband to help explain
the situation to the neighbor, and they both returned to the garage.
They asked him to come out from under the car, but he didn't respond.
When they finally dragged him out, he was unconscious and bleeding,
from slamming his head into the underside of the car each time he got
zipped by surprise!
