Can you imagine waking up in hospital with no idea why you are there or what happened to you that caused you to be there?
Well, this man woke up in hospital, all bandaged up so he could barely move. He didn’t know where he was at first, but then realised he was in hospital and was confused as to why he was there.
The doctor saw that he had regained conciousness and walked over to his bed so that he could check on him.
The patient asked him, “Am I in a hospital? Are you a doctor? Why am I in here?”
The doctor replied, “Mr. Jones, I know this may come as a shock, but you have had an accident involving a train and were badly injured”.
Mr. Jones asked the doctor what happened.
The doctor replied, “Well, I have got some good news for you and also some bad news. Which would you like to hear first?”
The patient thought for a minute and decided to have the bad news first.
“Well Mr. Jones”, the doctor said, “your legs were injured so badly that we had to amputate both of them”.
In total shock, Mr. Jones asked the doctor, “That’s terrible! What’s the good news?”
The doctor replied, “The good news is, there’s a man in the next ward who made a very good offer on your shoes”.
