A man was walking down a street when he heard a voice calling out from behind him say, “If you take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you”.
The man stopped on hearing the voice and to his amazement, a large brick fell to the ground and landed right in front of him.
The man was astonished. He looked all around him, but he couldn’t see anybody there.
So, he carried on walking and after a while he went to cross the road.
Once again he heard the voice shout out, “Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step a car will run over you, and you will die”.
The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came speeding around the corner, swerving all over the place and barely missing him.
The man looked around him again, but could still not see anybody there.
He called out, “Who are you?”
“I am your guardian angel”, the voice answered.
“Oh, yeah, really?” the man asked “And where the heck were you when I got married?”
