Late for Dinner

October 6, 2015 | by Aish.com

Moishe and Miriam got along pretty well. But there was one thing that drove Miriam absolutely crazy, and that was that no matter how many times she told Moishe how important it was to her that he come on time for dinner, he never did.

It was after one such spat that he got down on his knees and said “Miriam, I promise I am turning over a new leaf. From now on I will be on time for dinner!”

Well, the next day, promptly at 5 o’clock, Moishe locked up his shop and headed out the door to his car. When suddenly out of nowhere a car pulled up next to his parked car and hit Moishe. Moishe was rushed to the hospital. Luckily they let him out after 3 hours and he walked in the door to his house at 8 o’clock. Miriam was livid!

“Wait I can explain” pleaded Moishe, “I got run over by a car!”

“OH REALLY!?,” screamed Miriam, “TELL ME SOMETHING, IT TAKES 3 HOURS TO GET RUN OVER BY A CAR!?”
