A sailor friend, Hakeem Haron, moored his ship somewhere in the depth of South China Sea and decided to send me a charming e-mail. The e-mail reads:
Never argue with a woman who reads…
One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.
Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, “Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?“
“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, “isn’t that obvious?”)
“You are in a restricted fishing area,” he informs her.
“I am sorry officer, but I am not fishing. I’m reading.“
“Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up!“
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” retorts the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you!” says the game warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.“
“Have a nice day ma’am.” And he left her alone.
Moral: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely that she can also think. Send this to women who are thinkers. If you receive this, you know you are intelligent. If you are a guy, this serves as warning.
And I thought that was awfully sweet of my sailor friend to send me this email all the way from the ocean!
