A man and his wife were having some problems at home, and were giving each other the silent treatment.
The next week the man realized he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight to Sydney.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (AND LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me up at 5:00 AM".

The next morning the man woke only to discover it was 9:00 AM, and that he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go see his wife, to find out why she had not woken him, when he notice a piece of paper by his bedside.

The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up!"
