The following story shows how a man learned this on the hard way:
One day, the husband called his wife, and asked:
“Honey I’ve been asked to go fishing in China with my boss for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get the promotion. So could you please pack enough clothes for a week, set out my rod & fishing box. We’re leaving from office & I’ll swing by the house to pick my things. Oh, and please pack my new blue silk pyjamas!”
His wife immediately noticed that something was not right with the lousy excuse her husband managed to invent for the next week, but she decided to be a good wife and do what she was asked to.
After a week, her husband returned home, and looked tired, but explained to her that he was happy that he has done a good job by attending the fishing party.
The woman wanted to know all in details, and asked about the boss, the weekend, the other colleagues, if they had caught fish, and so on. Her husband answered: “Yes, Lots of Salmon, Blue gill & a few Swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my blue silk pyjamas?”
The woman replied: “I did…..They’re in your fishing box”.
