Just friends - Right... (How to find out the truth)

We're just friends. Honest!

A mom visits her son for dinner who lives with a girl roommate.

During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty his roommate was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two, and this had only made her more curious....

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between him and his roommate than met the eye.

Reading his mom's thoughts, her son volunteered,

“I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you,we are just roommates."


About a week later, his roommate came to him saying,

“Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver plate. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

He said ,"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." He sat down and wrote :

Dear Mother:

I'm not saying that you ‘did' take the silver plate from my house, I'm not saying that you ‘did not' take the silver plate 

But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

your son.


Several days later, he received an email from his mother which read:

Dear Son:

I'm not saying that you ‘do' sleep with your roommate, and I'm not saying that you ‘do not' sleep with her.

But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the silver plate by now, under her pillow…



  1. This funny story was "borrowed with pride" from a post I found in Facebook.

    It reminded me of the scene in Reminisces of a Stock Operator where upon receiving a "hot tip", Jesse SOLD instead of buy. From how well the market has absorbed his selling, Jesse was able to determine whether the "hot tip" was true or not.

    Have you ever asked a very enthusiastic salesperson whether he owned the product/service himself?

    Do you only trust; but never verify what others say?

  2. Haaa...:)

    It took me a while to understand the meaning of the mother's email.

    Clever sneaky Mum :)

    1. B,

      That's wisdom through personal experience.

      We sometimes forget our mom and dad were young once ;)

  3. SMOL,
    Ha! Ha!

    Human Ingenuity knows no bounds.
    Every problem should have a solution.
    And i told you so, "MOM is always right."

    1. Funny right temperament?

      "Mom knows me best!"

      Every little twitch, the faintest eye movement, the switch in tone of my voice, mom knows whether I am telling the truth or trying to hide from her.

      Afterall, she brought me up from day 1 :)

  4. Joke of the day!
