No easy way

Some things should never be said on the phone!

A man goes on a two-month business trip to Europe and leaves his cat with his brother. Three days before his return he calls his brother.

“So how’s my cat doing?” the guy asks.

“He’s dead,” his brother replies.

“He’s dead! What do you mean he’s dead? I loved that cat. Couldn’t you think of a nicer way to tell me? I’m leaving again in three days. You could have told me today she got out of the house or something. Then when I called before I left you could’ve told me, well, we found her but she’s up on the roof and we're having trouble getting her down. Then when I call you from the airport you could’ve told me the fire brigade was there and scared the cat off the roof but he died when he hit the ground.

“I’m sorry, you’re right,” the other brother says. “That was insensitive. I won’t let it happen again.”

“All right, forget about it. Anyway, how’s Mom doing?

“She’s up on the roof and we’re having trouble getting her down . . .”
