Bruce was laying down new carpeting in a woman’s home.
As he was finished, he got a craving for a cigarette. He looked around and discovered that his cigarettes were missing. He did, however, notice a bump in the carpet, and figured that he had laid carpet over the pack without noticing it there.
Bruce scratched his head and decided rather than to take up the entire carpeting, he would get a hammer and pound the bump into the ground so no one would know.
When he was finished doing that, the lady of the house walked into the room and commented on what a nice job he had done.
“Bruce, the carpet looks wonderful!” she exclaimed. “Here are your cigarettes; I found them in the kitchen. Oh yes, and by the way, have you seen my gerbil?”
