Could Have Been Worse
Harry constantly irritated his friends with his eternal optimism. No matter how bad the situation, he would always say, 'It could have been worse.'
To cure him of this annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a situation so completely black, so dreadful, that even Harry could find no hope in it. Approaching him at the club bar one day, one of them said, 'Harry! did you hear what happened to George? He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both, then turned the gun on himself!"
'Terrible,' said Harry, 'But it could have been worse.'
'How in hell,' asked his dumfounded friend, 'could it possibly have been worse?'
'Well,' said Harry, 'if it had happened the night before, I'd be dead now.'
