Bill & Hillary
Bill & Hillary
Bill and Hillary were married for 40 years. When they first got married Bill said, "I am putting a box under the bed. You must promise to never look in it".
In all their 40 years of marriage Hillary never looked. However, on the afternoon of their 40th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and looked inside the box.
In the box were 3 empty beer cans and $1,874.25 in cash. She closed the box and put it back under the bed. Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why. That evening they were out for a special dinner. After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and then confessed, saying, "I am so sorry. For all these years I kept my promise and never looked into the box under our bed. However, today the temptation was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know why do you keep the cans in the box?" Bill thought for a while and said," I guess that after all these years you deserve the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you (and had an improper relationship) I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again." Hillary was shocked, but said, "I am very disappointed and saddened, but I guess that after all those years away from home and on the road, temptation does happen and I guess that 3 times is not bad considering the years." They hugged and made their peace. A little while later Hillary asked Bill, "Why do you have all that money in the box?" Bill answered," Whenever the box filled with empties, I cashed them in."
