An attorney arrived home…
An attorney arrived home late one night after an extremely fraught day at the office trying to achieve a stay of execution for his client, one William Wright who was due to be hanged at midnight. Despite pleading for clemency to the governor he failed to get a judicial review and he was gutted, Emotionally drained and totally washed out.
As soon as he walked through the door his wife started! “What time do you call this? where have you been until this hour?you’ve been playing golf again haven’t you?” On and on she went but he was too tired to play his part in this latest domestic battle and went to the drinks cupboard, poured himself a large bourbon and downed it in one. Once again he poured himself a drink and took it through to the hot tub and relaxed ignoring his wife’s tirade.
While he was in the tub his wife took a phone call informing her husband that Wright’s execution had been deferred and realising what a crap day her husband had endured relented and went upstairs to give him the good news. As she entered the bathroom her husband was bent down with his back to her towelling himself off when she said, “They are not hanging Wright tonight”
The attorney whirled round and screamed hysterically, “For Christ’s sake woman, don’t you ever stop?”
