A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a New York store.
Of course the store clerks, who were trained for such emergencies,
called 911 and tended to the man when they saw him collapse. Paramedics
soon arrived and rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had
emergency open heart bypass surgery.
After a while, he awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care
of nuns at the Catholic Hospital he had been taken to. A nun was seated
next to his bed holding a clip board loaded with several forms, and a
pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.
"Do you have health insurance?" she asked.
He replied in a weak and raspy voice, "No health insurance."
The nun asked, "Do you have money in the bank?"
He replied, "No money in the bank."
"Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?” asked the irritated nun.
"I only have a spinster sister, and she is a nun."
At this the nun became agitated and announced loudly, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God."
"Perfect,” replied the patient, “Send the bill to my brother-in-law."
