They're never around when you need one.

After work, Karen was mugged. No one was around.

On the way home she got pulled over.
The officer asked for her license.
She explained the mugging.
He didn’t believe her.

She ran out of gas down the street.
No gas station in sight.

She called her husband. Probably golfing.

Karen walked home.
She found her husband asleep on the couch, TV blaring.
She turned the TV off. He woke up.
“Didn’t you hear the phone ring?” she asked.
“Do you ever wear your hearing aids?”
“Not at home.”

Karen didn’t know what to say. Words had escaped her.
