Why were you late for work?



I am looking for new in hope of hope for it to get over myself

ja ja ja interesting!!

I didn't quite understand what exactly "eight of us in the family" means ?
Thank you.

Hello Anna Teresa,

'eight of us in the family' means that there are eight people in the family. This is a really bad joke, so I wouldn't be surprised if you don't get it! It plays on the expression 'set an alarm for 7 o'clock' – the man is making an excuse for being late by saying that he set the alarm for 7 but since there are 8 people in the family, he got up late.

If you don't find the joke funny, you're not alone (i.e. neither do I)!

All the best,
