Proper precautions

Proper precautions

A husband and wife were dressed and ready to go out for a lovely evening of dinner and a movie. Having been robbed in the past, they turned on several lights in the home and the alarm system and put the cat out back so she wouldn’t set it off.

When the cab arrived, they walked out the front door and the tubby cat scooted between the man’s legs, raced inside, then ran up the stairs. The husband ran inside to retrieve her and put her in the back yard again. Because the wife didn't want the taxi driver to know their house was going to be empty all evening, she explained to the cabbie that the husband would be out momentarily as he was just bidding goodnight to his mother.

A few minutes later he got into the cab all hot and bothered, and to the wife’s horror he said, "Sorry it took so long but she was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn't scratch me like she did last time. But it worked! I hauled her down the stairs and threw her into the backyard. She had better not poop in the vegetable garden again or we’re just going to have to get rid of her!"
