A driver, a roofer, and their foreman were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building. They were eating lunch, and the driver said, “Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch I’m going to jump off this building.”
The roofer opened his lunch box and exclaimed, “Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I’m going to jump off, too.”
The foreman opened his lunch and said, “Bologna again. If I get a bologna sandwich one more time I’m jumping too.”
The next day the driver opens his lunch box, sees corned beef and cabbage, and jumps to his death. The roofer opens his lunch, sees a burrito, and he jumps too. The foreman opens his lunch, sees the bologna, and jumps to his death also.
At the funeral, the driver’s wife is weeping. She says, “If I’d known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage I never would have given it to him again!”
The roofer’s wife also weeps and says, “I should have given him a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich! I didn’t realize he hated burritos so much.”
Everyone turns and stares at the foreman’s wife. “Hey, don’t look at me,” she says. “He makes his own lunch.”
