4 Married Guys Talk About Their Wives While Fishing

Some activities get people to open up and start talking. For example, have you ever sat next to someone on a long flight and found yourself sharing things you’d normally not share with a stranger? There’s just something about being in close quarters with someone with nothing else to do that makes people just start talking. The interesting thing is, it’s not just you. This happens to everyone. I think it has to do with a distraction-free environment and close proximity and it encourages personal conversations. The same thing can happen on long road-trips or during activities that cause people to spend time reflecting. For a lot of men, fishing trips are the times that they really open up to their buddies. That’s why fishing buddies are such a powerful thing in a man’s life. You tell your fishing buddies things you may not share with other people. In the joke below, one man has a brilliant idea for how to get to go fishing without having to complete a honey-do list for their wives.

First guy: “You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this weekend. I had to promise my wife I will paint every room in the house next weekend.”

Second guy: “That’s nothing! I had to promise my wife I’d build her a new deck for the pool.”

Third guy: “Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I’ll remodel the kitchen for her.”

They continued to fish until they realized the fourth guy had not said a word.

So they asked him. “You haven’t said anything about what you had to do to be able to come fishing this weekend. What’s the deal?”

Fourth guy: “I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. When it went off, I shut off the clock, gave the wife a nudge and said, “Fishing, or Sex,” and she said, “Wear a sweater.”
