A Relationship is Work

| Romantic | January 16, 2012

(My girlfriend and I are unemployed college kids. We are on a triple date at a bowling alley. One of our friends is giving the other some bowling tips.)

Friend: *to the other friend* “Your bowling tips aren’t working!”

Me: *to my girlfriend* “You know what else isn’t working?”

Girlfriend: “What?”

Me: “Us.”

Girlfriend: *hurt* “What?”

Me: “Oh crud! I meant we’re both unemployed; jobless. We aren’t working!”

Girlfriend: *relieved but stern* “Oh.”

Me: “Sorry, poor choice of words.”

Girlfriend: “Yeah. Would you like to rephrase that?”

Me: “No, I’ll just take a beer and forget I said anything.”

Girlfriend: “Yeah, good idea.”

(Note: We are two blocks away from the beach.)

Customer: “Your lanes are crooked.”

Me: “Sir, I assure you they are not crooked; we have lane inspectors that come in every eight weeks and check for that kind of thing.”

Customer: “No! MY LANE IS CROOKED! Every time I bowl, the ball goes to the right!”

Me: *glancing at the clock* “Well, you know, it’s about 1:30. The tide is coming in.”

Customer: “That has an effect on it?”

Me: “Oh, yeah. I mean, we’re only a few blocks from the beach…”

Customer: “Huh… well, I guess I’ll try to bowl more towards the left, then…”
