A man was at the country club for his weekly round of golf.
He began his round with an eagle and a birdie on the second.
On the third hole he scored his first hole in one, when his
cell phone rang.
It was his doctor notifying him his wife had just been in a
terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.
The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was,
and that 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 round of golf ever.
He decided to get in a couple of more holes before heading for
the hospital. He ended up finishing all eighteen.
He finished his round shooting a personal best 61, shattering the
club record by five strokes and beating his previous best game
by more than 10.
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
The doctor glared at him and shouted,
"You went ahead and finished your round of golf, didn't you?
I hope your proud of yourself. While you were out for the
past four hours enjoying yourself at the country club,
your wife had been languishing in the ICU.
It's just as well you went ahead and finished that round because
it will be more than likely your last.
For the rest of your life she will require `round the clock care`,
and you'll be the care giver!".
The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.
The Doctor started to snicker and said,
" Just kidding, she died two hours ago... what did you shoot?"
