This guy's at work when he receives a call from the hospital informing himthat his wife's been in an accident. He rushes to the emergency room wherehe's met by the doctor. They sit down in the waiting room and the doctor,with a very solemn look on his face starts to speak. But before he can, theguy interrupts.Guy: "Doc, don't tell me my wife's dead. I just can't take it. Really, Ican't take it. I love her."Doctor: "Well, sir, I do have some bad news."Again the guy interrupts.Guy: "Doc, just tell me, did she make it?"Doctor: "As I was saying, we did all we could. Right now she's in avegatative state, which is likely where she'll remain for the rest of herlife. She can stay here overnight, but after that, you'll have to take herhome because your insurance doesn't cover this type of thing."The guy slumps, just crushed.Doctor: "With the right care, which will include you feeding her five timesa day, cleaning her and giving her constant care on a daily basis, she'lllikely live for at least another 30 years."The guy sinks even lower, just crushed, and starts to cry.Doctor: "As I said, your insurance doesn't cover this kind of care, soyou'll have to make some sort of arrangements to purchase the equipmentyou'll need for your wife. I would suggest you put your house on the markettoday and sell it as quickly as possible and buy a mobile home. You're gonnaneed the excess cash. It should be enough to buy the equipment your wifeneeds and for you to live on for the next couple of months. By then, youshould be able to qualify for welfare and other forms of state and federalaid."By this point, the guy is sobbing uncontrollably.The doctor reaches over, puts his hand on his shoulder and says, "Hey, lookat me." The guy looks up and the doctor smiles and says, "I'm just fuckingwith you, she's dead."
