Herman's day started out as usual. He woke up, showered, got dressed and ate breakfast. Over breakfast his wife began to complain about having to hang the laundry out to dry. With winter on the way, she was dreading hanging them out in the cold. Herman suggested she hang the clothes in the basement so she wouldn't have to go outside. His wife Mary protested that if she had to go to the basement anyway she might as well have a dryer. After some thought Herman agreed that they could go and look at the dryers at the local appliance store.
As they entered the store, a salesman greeted them. Herman explained they were only looking at dryers today. The salesman proceeded to show them his top model. Herman began to ask questions. "First, how much does it cost and can't I get the same features for less money?" The salesman replied, " Oh no, but the features are worth the money. Look how big it is. It can dry 8 towels in 20 minutes."
Herman said " That is pretty darn good, but does it dry jeans and sneakers well."
Mary was becoming frustrated at her husband's contrary manner. Mary suggested, "why don't you hop in the machine and see if if dries your jeans and sneakers."
Herman was appalled at his wife curt comment. Then he changed his mind and crawled in. He owed his wife a good laugh after embarrassing her at the store. He only asked that she not shut the door and start the machine.
She helped him out and they lived happily ever after.
