Chuckle of the Day – How To Calm A Man & Ignorant Texting

How To Calm A Man

A woman goes to the Doctor, worried about her husband’s temper.

The Doctor asks: “What’s the problem?

The woman says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Everyday my husband seems to lose his temper for no reason and it scares me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your husband is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing the water in your mouth. Just swish and swish, but don’t swallow it until he either leaves the room or goes to bed and falls asleep.”

Two weeks later the woman comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The woman says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

The Doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick.”

Texting When You’re Ignorant

This seems like something my mother would do.

Mom: Your great aunt just passed away. LOL

David: Why is that funny?

Mom: It’s not funny David! What do you mean?

David: Mom “LOL” means “Laughing Out Loud!”

Mom: Oh my goodness! I sent that to everyone I thought it meant “Lots Of Love”. I have to call everyone back!

So Skip thought the first chuckle of the day was a riot, well I thought it was funny too, but for me the second chuckle about “Texting When You’re Ignorant” was HILARIOUS! In fact, I did laugh out loud when I read it! But who’s to say that LOL can’t also mean “Lots Of Love” also? LOL to you, Redhead Riter! (Now you don’t know if I’m laughing out loud or sending lots of love to you!) 🙂

12 Sherry Riter April 27, 2013 at 9:39 am

LOL LOL Yes, you do love to talk, but I’m only agreeing. I didn’t actually say it first. LOL

That first one was hilarious. :p

The second one was funny as well. xD I once texted to my aunt “ftw”. I use it as “for the world”, but I remembered getting so pissed off for her getting upset with me, because I was an adult then (and still am now), and she was so appalled at how I was [possibly] talking.


14 Sherry Riter April 29, 2013 at 12:49 pm

LOL LOL LOL Too funny!!!! I texted someone “BTW” which means “by the way” and they wrote back, “What is that??????” Same person didn’t know what “LOL” meant either. (rolling my eyes) 😀


15 Jillian Mak April 30, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Really funny! Lots of Love! That one had me cracking up. That is something I would end up doing!!
