(I’m particularly proud of this one because it all happened in about two minutes.)
Jeff: What would you like?
Client: I still get along well with my ex. Well, no I don’t. Not really. Actually, that’s the problem. Every time we’re together, there’s a heaviness in the atmosphere, and a rising sort of frustration always develops.
Jeff: Does this happen with anyone else, or just your ex?
Client: Well, it used to happen with my mom.
Jeff: Used to?
Client: Not any more. We get along great now.
Jeff: So, who changed?
Client [after long pause]: Oh. Oh. Oh! Right! [pause] Thanks!
