There was a couple who were running late preparing for the big party. He noticed a button had come off his trousers and needed sewing. His wife simply did not have the time to tend to it so she suggested he run across the street to have her lady friend take care of the matter.
He did. A little bit later he came back with the button sewn on, but he was terribly beaten up. His wife exclaimed, "Good grief! What in the world happened to you! You just went over there for the button to be sewed on, and now look at you!"
"Well, when I told her what I wanted done she said to take a seat and that it would just take her a second. So I sat down and she began sewing on the button. Everything was going fine until she bent over to bite off the thread. That's when her husband came in the door."
