The Cat and the Cab Driver

Ah-ha Moment

Mr. and Mrs. Smith were excited about their plans for a weekend getaway following what seemed like one of the longest weeks of the year. The bags were packed and by the door as they waited for the car service to pick them up. They were completely unaware that the cat was perched just outside the front door.

As their ride approached they grabbed their bags to head to the curb. Just as they opened the door the cat jumped inside. Mr. Smith did not want the cat to be shut inside the house for the weekend so he went back inside to get it.

When Mrs. Smith got in the car she decided she did not want the driver to know the house would be empty for the weekend so she told them Mr. Smith had gone back to say goodbye to his mother.

Soon Mr. Smith approached the car.

What he said totally shocked Mrs. Smith and almost had the driver calling the police.

What did he say? Scroll down for the answer.

"Sorry it took so long," he said. "The stupid old thing was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out!"

Life Lesson: Little lies have ethical consequences. Lack of honesty can be very harmful - especially if you are covering for someone else.
