Bedside Manners Joke

Funny joke about a man on his deathbed talking to his wife

The life support system beeped encouragingly, accompanying the large, ticking clock on the wall. Sarah's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months and 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 approach, so she pulled the chair next to the bed, leaning close to be able to hear him.

"You know," he whispered, his eyes brimming with tears, "you have been with me through all the bad times: when I got fired, you stuck right beside me; when my business collapsed, 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, my love?" she asked gently, squeezing his hand.

"I think you're bad luck."
