A problem shared

It’s 3:00 A.M. and Goldie wakes up to see her husband pacing the floor. “Morris, why can’t you sleep?” she asks him.

“You know our next door neighbor, Sam. I borrowed $1000 from him, and it’s due tomorrow morning and I don’t have the money. I don’t know what I’m going to do.” Morris replies.

Goldie gets out of bed and opens the window. “Sam!” she shouts, and several times more, “Sam! Sam!”

Finally a very groggy Sam opens the window opposite her and yells back, “What, what is it? It’s 3 AM, what do you want?”

Goldie says, “You know the $1000 my husband owes you? He doesn’t have it.”

She then slams the window shut and turns to Morris and says, “Now you go to sleep and let Sam pace the floor.”
