Capturing life's momentary events


When you're feeling bad

Sometimes hearing about other people's woes can help you see that your life's not so bad.

I know a guy who fell at work and broke his hip. When they took him to the hospital he needed a heart stint AND a hip replacement.

I know a guy who had to get his leg amputated because a cleaning cart gouged his leg coming around a corner which resulted in a gangrenous leg. Tough part was they had to amputate it one section at a time. First at the ankle, then the shin, finally at the knee.

I know a guy who had to have his liver and kidneys replaced. He was a diabetic and they were failing him.

I know a guy who has tried to find a wife by writing a woman in a foreign country. He's tried seven times. One time she came out with her 17 year old son. Early the next morning there was a knock at the door. The police had apprehended the boy who had took his keys while he was sleeping. The guy's Corvette was smashed.

Here's the worst part, it's all the same guy. If he were a cat, I'd swear he has nine lives.

So when you think you have it bad, someone has it worse.
