The Dark Side of Women

A woman was in town on a shopping
trip.  She began her day by finding
the most perfect shoes in the first
shop and a beautiful dress on sale
slashed by 75 percent in the second.
  In the third, everything had just
been reduced by 50 percent when
her mobile phone rang.

          It was a female doctor notifying
her that her husband had just been in
a terrible car accident and was in
critical condition in the ICU.  The
woman told the doctorto inform
her husband where she was and
that she'd be there as soon as possible.
          As she hung up she realized
she was leaving what was shaping
up to be her best day ever in the
boutiques. She decided to get in a
couple more shops before heading
to the hospital.  She ended up
shopping the rest of the morning,
finishing her trip with a cup of
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 woman doctor in the
corridor and asked about her
husband's condition.  The doctor
glared at her and shouted, "You
went ahead and finished your
shopping trip, didn't you!?  I hope
you're proud of yourself!  While you
were out for the past four hours
enjoying yourself in town, your
husband has been languishing in
pain in the Intensive Care Unit! 
It's just as well you went ahead
and finished, because it will more
than likely be the last shopping
trip you'll ever take!  For the rest
of his life he will require
round-the-clock care. 
And he will now be your career!"
          The woman, overcome
with guilt, broke down and sobbed.
          The woman doctor chuckled
and said, "I'm just messing with you. 
He's dead.  Show me what you bought."
