He Got Used to That in Prison

Em­ploy­ee #1: So your hus­band got moved to a new pen­i­ten­tiary?
Man­ag­er: Very fun­ny. He’s been out for sev­er­al years. He’s a great guy, I love him a lot.
Em­ploy­ee #1: We know you do. (rais­es eye­brow)
Em­ploy­ee #2: What? How?
Em­ploy­ee #1: She told us yes­ter­day that she likes to wake her hus­band up with blowjobs.
Man­ag­er: How else did you think I woke him up?

At the Trou­ble Brew­ing Com­pa­ny

Fe­male cowork­er #1: I want a ba­by with a hap­py tem­pera­ment. With my luck, he’ll pro­l­ly be all ir­ri­ta­ble all the time.
Fe­male cowork­er #2: Well, if he’s any­thing like you he’ll be ir­ri­ta­ble. You should find a very hap­py hus­band.
Fe­male cowork­er #1: He’ll be mar­ried to me, of course he’ll be hap­py.
Male cowork­er: I feel sor­ry for the guy that mar­ries you. Shit, I did­n’t mean to say that out loud.
