John walked into the pub and sat down, “Oh my God, she is driving me up the wall,’ he said. “What’s wrong?” asked Mary. “My boss asked me to work late, again. Down the road, I think I’m going to have to quit,” he said. “You should. I was just about to hit the road actually,” she said as she stood up. “Oh no, please, have one for the road,” begged John, “I had to carpool with my neighbour today, I need a beer after that.” Mary sat down, “OK then, one more for the road.”
