People in the village know that Xu Hu is bold, a few days ago late at night alone to catch thieves, but also knows that Xu Hu is afraid of his wife, a tiger into a kitten at home. Xu Hu is not afraid of people laughing at him, his wife Xiao Ying looks pretty and smart, afraid of such a wife willingly!

Speaking of that day alone catching a thief, Xu Hu still can not help but laugh. That day, Xu Hu went to town to run into an old classmate, the two drank a meal until midnight, so late no car, Xu Hu called his wife Xiaoying report, approved him to find a hotel to stay the night.

Xu Hu dizzy, somehow into a dimly lit alley, found something wrong about to turn around, suddenly heard movement overhead, look up, only to see a dark figure from the third floor of a window, needless to say, is a thief.

Two people one-on-one, the safest way is to call the police, Xu Hu immediately came to the spirit, look at the thief was about to grab the drainpipe to slip down, but the hand carrying a large bag of stolen goods too much in the way, throw down and afraid to make a loud noise. Looking down hesitant, Xu Hu walked toward the thief below, him with a strong wave, signaling him to throw down the bag. The thief was first shocked, and then thought maybe a coincidental encounter with peers, a loose hand to throw down the bag. Xu Hu neatly caught the bag on the ground, and when the thief was about to land, shouted: "Catch the thief!"

The thief was a big jump, a loose hand fell a foot to the sky, Xu Hu rode on his body, hands pinched his neck and shouted: "Do not move, then move I strangle you!" Scared the thief did not dare to move. Neighbors ran out at the sound of the thief twisting into the police station.

Afterward Xu Hu learned that the thief stole from the neighboring widow Pan's mother's house. The young and beautiful widow brought a gift to thank Xu Hu, Xu Hu's heart smug, Xiaoying's heart sour.

After a few days, the village director informed Xu Hu, and let him go to the town hall, Xu Hu asked what was going on, and the director sold out, said you went to know. Xu Hu estimated that it must be a good thing, but also to Xiaoying sell, only to say that it is to go to the town to attend the wedding of a classmate. The wedding must be drinking, Xiaoying considering the heroic performance of Xu Hu alone to catch the thief, not only agreed to Xu Hu's application, before going out but also read him a jingle: "out, the wife explained: less drinking, more food, can not reach, stand up, home at night wife has arrangements!"

Xiaoying read this for a reason: a few days ago Xu Hu went to see his uncle in a neighboring village, the result was two cousins were drunk and broke the piece, when he came home somehow the wrong door, head-on into the neighboring Pan widow's house, fell asleep on the bed, scared Pan widow squealing. With so many neighbors around, Xu Hu couldn't explain why he barged into the widow's house and has been sanctioned by Xiao Ying to sleep on the sofa at night. Now that his wife has finally made arrangements, he is happy to nod his head.
