A man and his wife check into a hotel
The husband wants to have a drink at the bar, but his wife is extremely tired so she decides to go on up to their room to rest.
She lies down on the bed when, suddenly, an elevated train passes by very close to the window and shakes the room so hard she’s thrown out of the bed.
Thinking this must be a freak occurrence, she lies down once more
Again a train shakes the room so violently, she’s pitched to the floor.
Exasperated, she calls the front desk and asks for the manager
The manager says he’ll be right up.
The manager is skeptical but the wife insists the story is true
“Look, lie here on the bed and you’ll be thrown right to the floor!”
she tells him, So he lies down next to the wife.
Just then the husband walks in. “What,” he says, “what are you doing here?!”
The manager calmly replies: “Would you believe I’m waiting for a train?”
