Hit by a Bus

For the third time that week, Ben had been late home from work and his wife was sick and tired of reheating his food.

"Next time this happens," she threatened, your dinner will be in the bin and the bed will be made up in the spare room.

"Don’t worry darling," he promised, nothing will stop me from getting home on time tonight."

True to his word, Ben left work 10 minutes early to make sure he caught the train but alas, as he was crossing the road, a double-decker bus swerved around the corner and knocked him to the ground. Fortunately, he only had cuts and bruises but he was taken to hospital for a check up and eventually arrived home three hours late.

So much for promises!" yelled the wife. You’ve done it this time." It wasn’t my fault! I got hit by a bus!" replied Ben.

Oh yeah!" she replied scornfully, and that took three hours, did it?"
