A man became suspicious of his wife. He was convinced that she was
having an affair with another man although she consistantly denied it. One
day he decided to leave work early to try to "catch her in the act".
Pulling into the parking lot (they live on the 8th floor of an apartment
building), he sneaks up the stairs. Upon reaching the door of the
apartment, he hears his wife laughing inside. Trying to open the door
silently, he slips and bangs his head against the door with a resounding
"BOOM!" but still manages to make a fairly rapid entry. Inside, he sees
his wife (looking a bit sheepish) with 2 half filled glasses and a wine
bottle. Accusing her of an affair again, she claims that they were both
for her. Not believing this for an instant, he makes a rapid search of the
apartment, finishing in the kitchen. Finding no one else puts him into a
rage and he looks out the kitchen window. There, 8 stories below is a
young man rushing out of the building putting on his tie. The husband,
convinced that he has found the adulterer goes completely off the deep end,
picks up the refrigerator, throws it out the window, immediately suffers
a heart attack and dies. (Setup complete)
At the gates of heaven are three men waiting to get in. St. Peter
asks the first one "How did you come to be here my son?". The man replies
"Well, this is going to sound strange but I was late for work and was
running out of my apartment when this refrigerator dropped out of the sky
and killed me." St. Peter checks his books, shakes his head in amazement
at what the world below is coming to, and lets the man in.
The second man says "Now I feel really bad. I was convinced that
my wife was having an affair. When I saw the previous gentleman rushing
out of my building, I thought I had found him. I lost control of my
temper and threw the refrigerator onto him. The strain was too much for my
heart and I died of a heart attack leaving my innocent wife to fend for
herself." St. Peter consults his books for some time, balances the incident
against the man's prior life, makes some nondescript sounds and decides to
let the man in.
After making a number of notes in his books, St. Peter turns to the
third man who says: "Well, I was just sitting there in this refrigerator..."

-if you have to ask get out of the way-
Have you ever been stopped by a traffic cop and, while he was
writing a ticket or giving you a warning, you got the feeling that
he would just love to yank you out of the car, right through the
window, and smash your face into the front fender?...
