An older Jewish couple was starting on a vacation, but it soon became obvious that their habit of arguing over everything was not taking a break.
“It’s ‘Hawaii’ I’m telling you!” she shouted.
“Oy! I never KNEW someone so stubborn! It’s pronounced ‘Havaii’!” he replied.
And so it went all the way to the airport and for the long flight.
As they got off the airplane, the husband abruptly stopped his wife and turned to a man standing at the airport gate. “Now that we’re on the island, you can settle an argument between my wife and I. Is this ‘Hawaii’ or ‘Havaii?’”
The man smiled and said, “This is Havaii,”
“Ha!” the husband said, turning to his wife, “See, didn’t I tell you never to argue with me? I’m always right!” As they began to walk away, he turned and gave the man a hearty “Thank you!”
The man responded, “You’re Velcome!”
