Less Can Be SO Much More

My friend, Lynette was having work done in her back yard and didn’t want her dog to get out when the workmen came.  So she wrote a note for the workmen and attached it to the fence gate in.  The note read:

“To the Pool Workmen, Please know that there is a dog in the backyard.  We want to make certain that he doesn’t get out, so please give us a call at 555-5555 when you arrive so that we can make certain he is contained.”

When she showed the note to her husband, Tim, he looked at her curiously and said, “What’s wrong with, ‘Beware of Dog?’”

Hmmmm.  Hadn’t thought of that.
