Bad News Doctor 醫生的壞消息
Tony was scheduled to meet with his doctor today
and was eager to find out his test results.
His sister Maria had been begging him to go for a checkup for quite some time.
He waited patiently in the exam room for the doctor to come.
Ten minutes passed when his doctor finally stepped into the room.
As he approached, he said, “Well, Tony, I’ve got your test results back,
and there are two pieces of news.”
“What are they?” Tony replied.
“Well, one is bad and the other one is really bad,” said the doctor.
“There’s no good news?” Tony asked.
The doctor just shook his head. “I’m afraid you only have 24 hours to live,” the doctor said.
“24 hours! That’s horrible. What could be worse than that?” Tony yelled.
The doctor nervously looked down at his file and said, “I’ve been trying to reach you since yesterday.”
