Train Problem

A man and his wife check into a hotel. The husband wants to have a drink at the bar, but his wife is tired, so she decides to go on up to their room to rest.

She lies down on the bed, and just then, an elevated train passes by, very close to the window, and shakes the room so hard she's thrown out of the bed.

Thinking this must be a freak occurrence, she lies down once more. A few minutes later, a train shakes the room so violently, she's pitched to the floor.

Exasperated, she calls the front desk and asks for the manager. The manager says he'll be right up.

The manager is skeptical, but the wife insists the story is true. "Look,” she says. “Lie here on the bed. You'll be thrown right to the floor in a minute!" So he lies down next to the wife.

Just then, the husband walks in, and he can’t believe his eyes. "What," he says, "are you doing here?"

The manager calmly replies, "Would you believe I'm waiting for a train?"
