Labor Humor: The Union-buster’s Complaint
A union-buster had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table he had a near-death experience.
Seeing God, he asked, “Is my time up?”
2014.12.15—humor-pearlygates+++God answered, “No, you have another 40 years, two months and eight days to live.”
+++Upon recovery, the union-buster decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, tummy tuck and even had someone come in and do hair implants. Since he had so much more time to live, the union-buster figured he might as well make the most of it.
+++After his last operation, the union-buster was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on his way home, he was hit by a car and died instantly. Arriving in front of God, the union-buster angrily said, “I thought you said I had another 40 years! Why didn’t you pull me out of the path of the car?”
+++God replied, “I didn’t recognize you.”
