A mates wife once phoned me early on a Sunday morning. Concerned about his whereabouts, she hasn't seen or heard from him since the previous morning and she was worried something was wrong, he was missing, no idea where he was.
"He wasn't out with you yesterday was he? Maybe fishing or out on the boat?" she asked. I was getting worried now that my mate had been lost at sea or something, "No." I said, "Haven't seen him all week. Is there anything I can ....".
"MIKE!! You lying *expletive* *expletive* ... You weren't out with Rene last night..." she was screaming at him on the other end of the phone.
Mate got busted, been somewhere he shouldn't have and when put on the spot used me as an alibi. She played it out perfectly, served him right!
