The Pollyanna Guy
There is a man named John who was such a die-hard pollyanna. No matter how hard the situation is, he would always say, “It could have been worse.”
So to cure him of his annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a story to trick him.
One day, his friends told him, “John, did you hear what happened to Will? He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot then both, and turned the gun on himself!”
“That is so tragic,” John answered, “But it could have been worse.”
“But how could it be worse?” his bewildered friend replied, “Could it possibly be worse?”
“Well,” says John, “If it happened the night before, I could be dead!”
