“Ow. What’d you kick me for?”
Joe Jabroni is none too bright, or at least that’s how he feels after ballsing up yet another Valentine’s Day.
“It’s not my fault,” Joe, 32 of Darwin, said. “Me and the missus got a heap of Chrissy presents we didn’t want from the relies, so I suggested we should re-gift them to save money. Well, she thought it was a great idea,” mused Joe, scratching his chin in befuddlement as to how he ended up on his mate’s Macca’s doorstep.
Joe is slowly coming to the realization that what his wife, Sharon, didn’t mean was that he should re-gift them to her on the most romantic day of the year.
“She’s always on me to stop spending money, so I thought she’d really get a kick out of it,” moaned Joe, who literally copped a kick to the spuds for his efforts.
Keen to get them back together, and get back to romancing his own wife on Valentines Day, Macca prompts Joe to make amends. “Good idea. It’s pay day today so I’m gunna buy her the most expensive box of goon I can find. That’ll get me back in the good books.”
Unsure why Joe started packing Macca’s finishing rods into the back of his ute, he told Macca he had a few stops to make before going to Sharon’s. “I am going straight there, after I do some fishing of course. And go down the pub. Might make a quick stop at the TAB too, then pick up the goon, and then I’ll go and win Shazza back. Catch ya,” waved Joe as he drove off.
“Looks like Joe will be staying a while,” sighed Macca, shaking his head. “Now I’ve got to tell my missus her Valentine’s gift is him sleeping on our couch.” Unlike Joe, Macca plans on doing this sitting down to avoid a kick to the spuds.
