Sign language and strange love
The wife had the perfect reply for her seemingly-smart husband, but he just doesn't seem to get it.
A team of husband and wife surveyor is working on a new plot of land, where they will be developing a new building.

The wife isn't surprised at this. "Oh, I got that," she replies. "I tried to tell you that," she repeated her own gesture once again, "I left it in the box.
