An Indian man, a Mexican man and an English man are the best of friends. The grew up together, work together and share life’s up’s and down’s with each other. They were all also getting bored with life and feeling unloved…
One day at work, on a building site, the men sit to eat their lunch. The Indian man opens his lunch box to chapattis and pickle…
Indian Man: I swear if I have to eat this food again tomorrow, I’m going to jump to my death from the top of this building!
Then Mexican man opens his lunch box to burritos…
Mexican Man: I’m sick of burritos! If I have to eat this again tomorrow, I swear I’m also going to jump to my death after you!
Finally the English man open his lunch box to a sandwich…
English Man: I’ll follow you both off this building if I have to eat another sandwich tomorrow!
Tomorrow arrives and the 3 friends sit on the top floor of the building site to have their lunch. Before opening their boxes, they pray together. They pray that their wives have finally listened to their needs and brought something new and exciting to fill their lunch boxes with.
The Indian Man opens his lunch box…
Indian Man: Chapattis and pickle! She doesn’t love me! (he runs and throws himself off the building, 40 floors to his death!)
The friends are left shocked! Then the Mexican man opens his lunchbox…
Mexican Man: Another Burrito! I knew the love had gone! (he throws his burrito over the side of the building then follows it to his death!)
Only the English man is left. He knows for certain his wife loves him! So he opens his lunch box…
English Man: A sandwich. … But I know she loves me, almost as much I loved my mates who have just plunged to their deaths. (he walks to the edge of the building, takes a big bite of his sandwich and steps off, falling to his death!)
The following week is the funeral of the 3 friends. The wives are all heart-broken and can’t understand what led their husbands to take such drastic measures!
Indian Wife: I didn’t think he was serious asking for a different lunch. Had I known, I would have made him rice and chickpeas instead!
Mexican Wife: If only I knew how much he didn’t want a burrito, I would have packed him a taco instead. At least then he would have been beside me today!
English Wife: I never did understand my husband… I loved him so much… But now I know he never really loved me! He would always rather spend time with his mates over me … And … He always made his own sandwich for lunch!
LOL! Funny joke, right?
I thought so!
But then again… to be stuck in a rut must be an awful feeling. To do the same thing over and over, day in – day out, no wonder these poor men took the plunge!
So please listen to your partner, your friends, your loved ones. If they want to do something different, do it! They may be stuck in a rut and need help getting out… And if it’s you whose stuck, ask for help!
And remember ladies – The way to a man’s heart is through his belly! Cook him a good hearty meal and he’ll show you his love, cook him the same meal over and over and – well, you just read the story. He might not quit life but he might quit you instead!
A different lunch could save a life… or a relationship!
So lets spice it up a bit… Or a lot!
As for the English man’s dilemma… Any ideas??? Share your thoughts on why he plunged after his friends.
