Thread: Fishing Story
10-10-07, 04:42 AM #1
A man was fishing offshore in beautiful conditions. His first drop began
with a 65 lb Kingfish and the second produced a 20 lb snapper. On the
third drop he had just scored his first ever Yellowfin tuna when his
mobile phone rang. It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just
been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition in the
intensive care unit.
The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that the
he'd be there as soon as possible. As he hung up he realized he was
leaving what was shaping up to be his best ever fishing trip. He decided
to get in a couple of more drifts before heading to the hospital.
He ended up catching several personal bests, and all in all, had his
best days fishing by far. He was jubilant.... Then he remembered his
wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital.
He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition.
The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and kept fishing
didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the
past four hours enjoying yourself on the ocean, your wife has been
languishing in the ICU! It's just as well you went ahead and finished
the fishing because it will be more than likely your last!"
"For the rest of her life she will require 'round the clock care. And
you'll be her care giver!"
The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed .
The doctor snickered and said, "Just screwing with you, man.
What'd you catch?"
