Tim goes away on a two month business trip and asks his neighbor Ron to take care of his cat, Fluffy. Ron agrees.

A week into the trip Tim calls to ask Ron for an update.

Tim: How’s Fluffy doing?

Ron: She’s dead.

Tim: I……….. You………. well………… wow that was a hell of way to tell me!
You might have broken the news a little softer and easier without being so blunt and abrupt!

Ron: How?


Tim: Well the first time I called you could have said, “Fluffy’s up on the roof and we can’t get her down.” Then the second time I called you could have said, “We got her down but she hurt herself and she’s at the vet now being checked out.” The third time I called you could have said, “She was doing better, but she’s taken a turn for the worse.” Then the fourth time I called you could have said, “She held on as long as she could but last night she passed peacefully in her sleep.”

Ron: Wow. good advice. I’ll do that next time this situation arises.

Tim: Well good. Thanks. By the way, how’s Mom doing?

Ron: ……… well……….. she’s up on the roof and we can’t get her down.
