The Dog, the Parrot, and the Repairman April 1, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

Wanda’s dishwasher quit working so she called in a repairman.  Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you a cheque.”

“Oh, by the way don’t worry about my dog Spike.  He won’t bother you.  But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!”


When the repairman arrived at Wanda ‘s apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking dog he has ever seen.

But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling.

Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!”

To which the parrot replied, “Get him Spike!”

See . . . some men just don’t listen!

This reminded me of a golf course we played down in Florida. There was a parrot on the patio of one of the homes trained to say “terrible shot” every time a golfer hit their ball. It was hilarious!

That’s hysterical! And something I would have enjoyed seeing first hand. Thanks, Jill.

It was hilarious, Nancy. A couple years later, we went back and played the same course and he was still there. 🙂 Some golfers didn’t find it as humorous as Derek and I did. 🙂

Sounds like it’s a well placed parrot . . . always ready to “call the shots.”

That’s so funny, Jill. 😀

Love Jill’s story of golfing. Parrots are annoying both in reality and in concept. Not a fan of them. I’m quiet, they’re noisy.

nrhatch - April 1, 2017

Ha! Obviously, you just don’t want to have an animal around that can talk back to you! 😀

Ha ha ha! Not fair. Wanda should have explained the consequences 🙂

nrhatch - April 1, 2017

Ha! Yes, she could have spelled it out a bit clearer . . .

9. anotherday2paradise - April 1, 2017

What do you mean “Some men don’t listen?” Most men don’t listen. 😆

nrhatch - April 1, 2017

Selective hearing!

10. Joanne Sisco - April 1, 2017

GASP!!! My mind immediately leaped to the next scene! The horror!

Sometimes what’s not said is the most important!

nrhatch - April 1, 2017

Who knows? Maybe Spike wasn’t listening! 😀

Joanne Sisco - April 2, 2017

One could hope 😉

nrhatch - April 10, 2017

He should have called Polly a “pretty bird” to appease her!
