The Quiet Lonely Man
A guy was known among his friends to be very brief and to the point...he really never said too much.
One day, a saleswoman promoting a certain brand of brushes knocked on his door and asked to see his wife, so the guy told her that she wasn't home.
"Well," the woman said, "could I please wait for her?"
The man directed her to the drawing room and left her there for more than three hours.
After feeling really worried, she called out for him and asked, "May I know where your wife is?"
"She went to the cemetery," he replied.
"And when is she coming home?"
"I don't really know," he said. "She's been there eleven years now."
