WOMAN AT THEIR BEST
A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the
most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in
the second. In the third everything had just been reduced to a fiver
when her mobile phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that
her husband had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.
The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that
she’d be there as soon as possible.
As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be
her best day ever in the shops. She decided to get in a couple of more
shops before heading to the hospital.
She ended up shopping the rest of the morning, finishing her trip with
a cup of coffee and a beautiful cream slice complementary from the
last shop. She was jubilant.
Then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she dashed to the
hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about her
husband’s condition. The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, ‘You
went ahead and finished your shopping trip didn’t you! I hope you’re
proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying
yourself in town, your husband has been languishing in the Intensive
Care Unit! It’s just as well you went ahead and finished, because it
will more than likely be the last shopping trip you ever take! For the
rest of his life he will require round the clock care. And you’ll now
be his carer!’
The woman was feeling so guilty she broke down and sobbed………..
The lady doctor then chuckled and said, ‘I’m just pulling your leg.
He’s dead. What did you buy?’
