|While waiting at the bus stop, a man with a stutter asked another, "E-e-excuse m-me, w-w-what t-time is it?"|
The other man didn't reply. Again, the man asked, "E-excuse m-m-me, c-can y-you t-t-tell me w-what t-time it is?"
Once again, the other man didn't reply. The man with the stutter got angry and stormed off.
A third man, having witnessed the whole ordeal, asked the silent man, "Why didn't you just answer the man's question?"
The silent man said, "Th-there w-w-would have b-been a f-fight."
