‘A travelling salesman found himself spending the night at home with his wife when one of his trips was unexpectedly cancelled. The two of them were sound asleep, when in the middle of the night there was a loud knock at the front door. The wife woke up with a start and cried out, ‘Oh, my God! It’s my husband!* Whereupon the husband leapt out from the bed, ran across the room and jumped out the window.’ Schank and Abelson, 1977, p. 59.
