A business man called a travel agent and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, the agent reminded him he needed a visa. “Oh no I don’t, I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those.” The agent double checked, and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When the agent told him this he said, “Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express.”
Susie’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months. Things looked grim, but she was by his bedside every single day. One day as he slipped back into consciousness, he motioned for her to come close to him. She pulled the chair close to the bed and leaned her ear close to be able to hear him.
“You know” he whispered, his eyes filling with tears, “you have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you stuck right beside me. When my business went under, there you were. When we lost the house, you were there. When I got shot, you stuck with me. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. “And you know what?”
“What, dear?” she asked gently, smiling to herself.
“I think you’re bad luck.”
