A couple were in a busy shopping center just before Christmas.

The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing, and as they had a lot to do, she called him on the mobile.

The wife said "Where are you? You know we have lots to do."

He said, "You remember the jewelers we went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love with that diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you."

Little tears started to flow down her cheek and she got all choked up; "Yes, I do remember that shop." she replied.

"Well, I’m in the pub next to that."

The way I heard it, the guy said "Well, I still didn't have enough money to buy it, but I think we have enough in the bank for my Bail. 
Walt,

Well, that works, too.  

On the other hand, if a submariner were making that call, seems to me the sitting-in-the-pub scenario would be more likely.  Just sayin' . . . Cool
