A man had an intense dislike for his wife’s cat and resolved to eliminate the feline from his life one day. His plan involved driving the cat a considerable distance of 20 blocks away from his residence and abandoning it at a nearby park.
Upon arriving home, he was taken aback to find the cat leisurely strolling up the driveway, seemingly unfazed by its recent relocation. Astonished by the cat’s ability to return so swiftly, the man decided to attempt a more substantial distance the following day. He embarked on a journey of 40 blocks, where he released the cat and promptly made his way back home.
To his disbelief, as he ascended his driveway, there was the cat again, nonchalantly waiting for him. Perplexed by the cat’s recurring reappearance, the man continued his futile attempts to distance himself from the feline. Each time he would transport the cat farther and farther away, only to find it miraculously beating him back home.
Finally, exasperated by his unsuccessful endeavors, he resolved to drive the cat several miles away. He embarked on a convoluted route, making consecutive right turns, crossing a bridge, and taking another right until he believed he had reached a safe distance from his dwelling. He left the cat at that spot and returned home, confident that he had finally succeeded in outsmarting the resilient creature.
Several hours later, consumed by his curiosity, the man decided to call his wife, Jen, and make an inquiry. He inquired, “Jen, is the cat still there?”
Without a hint of suspicion, his wife calmly replied, “Yes, why do you ask?”
Overwhelmed with frustration, the man blurted out, “Put that cunning animal on the phone immediately! I am hopelessly lost and desperately need directions!”
