One winter morning an old married couple in upstate New York were listening to
the radio during breakfast.
The radio announcer said, "We expect to get eight to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the
even-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through."
So the old woman went out and moved her car.
A week later they were eating breakfast again, when the radio announcer
said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your
car on the odd-numbered side of the street to let the snow plows get
The old woman went out and moved her car again.
The next week the old couple were again having breakfast, when the radio announcer
said, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park..."
Then the power went out.
The old wife was very upset. With a worried look on her face she said,
"Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park
on so that the snow plows can get through today?"
With the love and understanding in his voice from years of marriage, the old husband replied, "Honey, I suggest that you leave it in the garage this time."
