A LONG period of uncomfortable silence is ongoing after a couple decided to stop moaning.
Regular married man Stephen Malley said: “I was really, really tired and had a sore neck. My wife was also complaining of a sore neck and similar level tiredness, although clearly she wasn’t as tired as me.
“Having reached a complaining stalemate my wife Alice suggested we make a pact to stop moaning forever.
“I thought we would be fine. That was four days ago. Not a word has been uttered since. Without moaning we have nothing.”
Alice Malley said: “I thought our relationship was built on love and a mutual fascination with the world around us. Now I discover its based on finding each other and most things really, really annoying.”
Stephen Malley added: “I heard some jazz and thought, lovely, I’ll discuss that with Alice but then I saw she had left a wet towel on the bed and also the broadband wasn’t working.
“I just went in the other room and sat in a chair.”
