Charlie is a labourer working on a building site. At the end of the day’s work he joins his mates in a bibulous evening, then makes an accident-ridden journey home. He tries not to awaken his fearsome wife, by sleeping in the bath tub – which proves to be full of water. As soon as he falls asleep, the alarm clock goes off, his wife wakes up, and throws him out to go to work.
