A business executive is consumed by jealousy: he suspects his wife
of cheating on him. The suspicion grows and grows, and one morning as he
drives to work he can't take it any more. He thinks to himself, "she
probably just waited until I left so she could meet with her lover."
When he gets to his office, he calls home. The maid answers. He
says, "Hello. Is my wife there?"
"Yes, sir", the maid whispers.
"Is she with her lover?"
The maid pauses, and then says, "Yes, sir, she is, and I must say
that I feel terrible about how she treats you."
The man yells, "That no good **#*&!!. If you feel as badly as you
say you do, you must do this for me: go to my dresser and get my gun. Check
to make sure that it's loaded. Then go upstairs and shoot both that cheating
two-timing whore and her lover. Dispose of the gun, and then come back to
the phone and tell me that it's over. Don't worry -- I'll protect you."
The man hears footsteps, a drawer being opened, a click, more footsteps,
silence... and then two shots. More footsteps. Finally the maid comes back
to the phone and says "It's done."
The man asks, "What did you do with the gun?"
"I threw it behind the statue in the garden", the maid replies.
"Statue in the garden? Say, what number is this, anyway?"
