Tuesday Joke

This was in my inbox following the 3 day weekend and I thought it was great!

A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the mostperfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second.In the third, everything had just been reduced by 50 percent when her mobilephone rang.It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in aterrible car 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'dbe there as soon as possible. As she hung up she realized she was leavingwhat was shaping up to be her best day ever in the boutiques.

She decided toget 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 cupof coffee and a beautiful chocolate cake slice, compliments of 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 yourshopping trip didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself! While you wereout for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has beenlanguishing in the Intensive Care Unit! It's just as well you went ahead andfinished, because it will more than likely be the last shopping trip youever take! For the rest of his life he will require round-the-clock care. And hewill now be your career!'

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'sdead. Show me what you bought.'
