A couple went Christmas shopping at the mall. They decided to go their separate ways and meet two hours later.
The husband was at their appointed meeting place at the appointed time, but there was no sign of his wife. After waiting for half an hour, he started looking for her but couldn't find her in any of the stores she usually frequented.
Finally, thoroughly tired of looking for her, he approached a beautiful blonde on a mall bench. He smiled at her and said, "Please, talk to me! Quick!"
She said, "Why?"
"Because I've been looking for my wife all over this mall and I can't find her," the man replied.
"How will talking to me help you find your wife? I have absolutely no idea what she looks like, much less where she is."
"I didn't think you did. However, every time I start talking to a beautiful woman, my wife appears!"
