Coachgun Posted April 30, 2022 Author Share Posted April 30, 2022 Two traveling salesmen were riding together across West Texas when their car began to sputter and cough. Soon, it died completely, and they were stranded on the side of a state highway with little traffic. Fortunately, a pickup truck pulled over to help. The driver was a homely, middle-aged woman in jeans and a work shirt. She told them the closest town with a mechanic was 60 miles away, and since it was past 5:00 pm they would be closed anyway until the next day. In a gesture of Texas hospitality, she invited them to stay the night at her ranch which was nearby. Then they could call the garage in town to get their car fixed in the morning. The two salesmen were very appreciative, and climbed into the pickup with her. Soon they turned into a gate, and began driving through a lovely ranch where cattle were grazing behind neatly built fences. As they drove she told them how she and her late husband had run this ranch for years before he had died from a heart attack two years ago. Now it was just her running things, and it got lonely out here so she was glad for the chance to have guests. Before long they pulled up to a very nice ranch house surrounded by a white fence and with a big barn nearby. Once inside, the widow rancher made them comfortable on the big front porch and brought them cold iced tea before proceeding inside to cook a delicious home cooked meal for them. After dinner they chatted in the living room for a few hours before she showed them to the guest bedroom where they found a comfortable bed with down pillows and a homemade quilt. In the morning the widow made them a full breakfast while they waited for the tow truck to come pick up their car. When the wrecker came, they bid the kind widow a fond farewell and she sent them on their way with a bag of cookies for later. Soon their car was repaired and they were on their way again. About nine months had passed when one of the salesman called the other. "Bob, do you remember about nine months ago when our car broke down in West Texas?" "Yes, Mike. I remember that." "And Bob, do you remember that very kind widow that took us in for the night?" "Well of course I remember her Mike." "Well Bob, I have to ask you something." "Ok Mike." "Bob, did you slip out of the guest room that night?" “Yes Mike, I did." "And Bob, did you go to the widow's room that night?" "I did Mike." "Did you and the widow make love Bob?" "Yes, we did Mike" "Now Bob, this is very important. Did you by chance use MY name that night when you slept with her?" "I did Mike. I'm ashamed of myself, but I did. I'm really, really sorry Mike!" "Oh, that's ok Bob. I just wanted to call and let you know that she died and left me the ranch in her will." 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
