Accident on the Job

Accident on the Job

Three guys, Shane, Ricky and Jeff, were working on a high-rise building project when Shane fell off the scaffolding and instantly died.

As the ambulance took the body away, Ricky said, “Someone should go and tell his wife.”
Jeff says, “OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.”

Two hours go by, Jeff comes back carrying a case of beer. Ricky says, “Where did you get that, Jeff?” ‘
“Shane's wife gave it to me,” replies Jeff.

Ricky continues, “That's unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?”

“Well not exactly,” Jeff says. “When she answered the door, I said to her, you must be Shane's widow.”

She said, "No, I'm not a widow."

And I said, “I'll bet you a case of beer you are.”
