Dealing with Difficulty

Divorce court
Pappu and Jui had been married for many years but now were in divorce court.
The judge asked, "Pappu, is it true that the last three years of your marriage, you did not speak to Jui?"
Pappu replies, "Yes Judge, that is correct."
"And how do you explain this unusual conduct?" the judge inquires.
Pappu replies, "I didn't want to interrupt her, Your Honour."

Married for the money
Babu's grandfather left him 10 crore taka and the next week Diti agreed to marry him. After three months of married life, Babu noticed that his beautiful new wife was ignoring him more and more. Whenever they went out in public, she ignored him and flirted with other men. Finally, he decided to confront her. "Diti," he said, "the only reason you married me was because my grandfather left me 10 crore taka when he died." "Don't be ridiculous," she replied, "I don't care where your money came from!"

Demand for a raise
“Boss, I've got to have a raise," the salesman said to his sales manager. "There are three other companies after me." "Is that a fact?" the manager asked. "What other companies are after you?" "The electric company, the phone company and the gas company."

Working together
At one point during a game, the coach said to one of his young players, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?" The little boy nodded in the affirmative. "Do you understand that what matters is whether we win together as a team?" The little boy nodded yes. "So," the coach continued, "when a strike is called, or you're out at first, you don't argue or curse or attack the umpire. Do you understand all that?" Again the little boy nodded. "Good," said the coach. "Now go over there and explain it to your mother."

Evil brothers
There were two evil brothers. They were rich and used their money to keep their ways from the public eye. They even attended the same church, and looked to be perfect Christians. Then, their pastor retired, and a new one was hired. Not only could he see right through the brothers' deception, but he also spoke well and true, and the church started to swell in numbers. A fund-raising campaign was started to build a new assembly. All of a sudden, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the new pastor the day before the funeral and handed him a check for the amount needed to finish paying for the new building. "I have only one condition," he said. "At his funeral, you must say my brother was a saint." The pastor gave his word, and deposited the check. The next day, at the funeral, the pastor did not hold back. "He was an evil man," he said. "He cheated on his wife and abused his family." After going on in this vein for a small time, he concluded with, "But, compared to his brother, he was a saint."
