You’ve heard of waiting for the other shoe to drop?
A man was staying in a hotel room and complained to the manager that he was kept awake all night by the guest in the room above him. They visited the room above and found a farmer who had arrived back in the hotel, exhausted, in the middle of the night.
The farmer apologized and explained that he just flopped on his bed, and shoved off his boot which landed heavily on the floor. Realizing his mistake and the noise, he had taken the other boot off and placed it carefully on the floor.
The manager asked the original complainer, ‘You were kept awake all night from the one thump?’, to which the man replied ‘I was waiting for the second boot to drop!’
