    joke?

    I would like to know why the next writing is a joke.

    While on a car trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, the elderly woman left her glasses on the table, but she didn't miss them until they were back on the highway. By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around. The elderly man fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant. He called his wife every bad name he could think of. When they finally arrived at the restaurant, as the woman got out of the car to retrieve her glasses, the man yelled to her, "While you're in there, you might as well get my hat, too."

    Well you might say it as a joke beacuse, the husband who has abusing the wife for her bad memory and forgetting her glasses, when they reached back at the restaurant, he realized that he also had forgotten his hat and thus had an equally bad memory...
