The Mailman

Courtesy of my science teacher who gives us a joke every day before class.

A kid, about 5 or 6 years old, woke up one night at 4 in the morning screaming. His mother rushed into the room to see what was wrong. He told her he dreamed that their cat died. The mother assured him the cat was fine and they both went back to sleep.

At about two o'clock in the afternoon the next day, the mother went outside to find their cat, which wasn't that old, dead.

The next early morning, the kid woke up screaming again, and the mother rushed in. He informed her he dreamed that their grandma died.

Almost like clockwork, the mother got a call at two o'clock that their grandma had a heart attack. She didn't make it over in time to say goodbye.

Once again, at 4 in the morning the kid woke up screaming. Same scenario, except this time the kid said, "I had a dream daddy died."

At this point, the parents are scared, so they hatch a plan to make sure the dad didn't die.

The next morning, the dad got up, ate breakfast, and went to work, being very careful and scared on the road. He made it to his office, and locked himself in. He waited a until midnight before coming home, exhausted but alive. They were both happy, but the dad asked, "did anything happened while I was gone?"

The mother said, "Yeah, didn't you hear? The mailman was delivering and got run over by a truck and died!"
