A guy goes to a girl’s house for the first time and she shows him into the living room.
She excused herself to go to the kitchen to make them a drink. As he was standing there alone, he noticed a cute little vase on the mantel.
He picked it up and as he was looking at it, she walked back into the room.
“What’s this?” he asked.
“Oh, my father’s ashes are in there,” she replied.
“Geez . . . ooh . . . I . . . ,” stammered the fellow.
“Yeah,” added the girl. “He’s too lazy to go to the kitchen to get an ash tray.”
