Daily Joke: A Young Man Calls His Father to Ask for Some Money

Today’s #jokeoftheday is about a man that reached out to his father in a bid to get some money but was met with an unfortunate response.

When a man leaves his father’s home, many people see that as a sign of progress. That, however, wasn’t the case of a young man who was known for his money problems.

The man had become so famous for financially inconveniencing friends and family that his father came up with a plan. That plan was set into motion one afternoon when the young man required $200.

He needed to find the money if he wanted his car fixed and back on the road in no time. Upon concluding that he had nobody else to borrow from, the man decided to place a call to his parents’ house.

So, he picked up his phone, called his parents through the operator, and reversed the call charge. When his father answered the phone, the man said: “I need to borrow $200.”

Silently chuckling to himself, the boy’s father replied, “Sorry, I can’t hear you, son, I think there may be a bad line.” The boy repeated his statement by yelling, “Two hundred. I need two hundred dollars!”

Still feigning a poor phone connection, his father responded: “Sorry, I still can’t hear you clearly.” At this point, the operator decided to chip in and stated, “Sorry to butt in, but I can hear him perfectly clearly.”

The boy’s father quickly retorted: “Good. Then you send him the money!” If you want to keep laughing, then you should enjoy this joke about the man who met his newly wedded wife in tears. 

When a newly-married man was leaving the office one evening, he didn’t think that he would meet his wife at home, crying. So it was with great surprise that he asked her, “Darling, whatever is the matter?”  His uncontrollable wife turned to him and began to explain,

“Sweetheart, the most terrible thing has happened! I cooked my very first Beef Bourguignon for you, and I got it out the oven to season it, and the phone rang. When I came back from answering the phone, I found that the cat had eaten it!”

Breathing a sigh of relief, the husband replied, “Don’t worry, darling. Don’t cry. We’ll get a new cat in the morning…” Did you enjoy the joke?
