Waiting for the Shoe to Drop

A man living on the first-floor of an apartment got upset every night because the guy living above him dropped his shoes on the floor when he got ready for bed. Every night, the same thing happened. First, the noise from one shoe, then the noise from the other. Finally, the man downstairs had enough, so the next time it happened, he pounded on the ceiling with a broomstick, and yelled at the guy to stop it.

The next night, as the guy upstairs was getting ready for bed, he took off the first shoe, and without thinking, dropped it. Then he remembered. He was not supposed to do that. So he took the second shoe off carefully and put it down quietly.

The guy downstairs was in bed when he heard the first shoe drop. He lay there waiting for the second shoe to drop, but it didn’t. Finally, he yelled, “Hey. Drop the other shoe.”
