were having some problems at home and were giving

morning business flight.

He left it where he knew she would find it.

9:00 AM and
he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his
wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.“
