Thursday Special ~ Life

There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for a half hour.

Then a big trouble making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, & just drinks it all down.

The poor man starts crying.

The truck driver says, “Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I just can’t stand to see a man cry.”

“No, it’s not that,” the man replies, wiping his tears, “This day is the worst of my life. First, I oversleep & I go in late to my office. My outraged boss fires me. When I leave the building to go to my car, I find out it was stolen. The police say they can do nothing. I get a cab to go home, & when I get out, I remember I left my wallet. The cab driver just drives away. I go inside my house where I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave my home, come to this bar, & just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life,…

you show up & drink my poison.”



Thanks to Robert, for this snifter of poison.

    A young friend had a post up on fb this morning that read “Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.” I responded: ” I wish that SOMETHING, ANYTHING would happen, be it falling apart or falling into place.”

    What the suicidal man doesn’t realise is that the truck driver has had even worse luck than him. He’s lost his entire life savings to an investment scam and has just been told he has terminal cancer. So drinking the other man’s poison will put him out of his misery and be a blessing in disguise.
