    A woman was in town on a shopping trip.

    She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a
    beautiful dress on sale in the second.

    In the third shop everything had just been reduced to a fiver when her
    mobile phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had
    just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition, and in
    intensive care in the local hospital.

    The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that she'd
    be there as soon as possible.

    As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be her
    best day ever in the shops, so she decided to get in a couple of more shops
    before heading to the hospital. She ended up shopping the rest of the
    morning, finishing her spending spree with a cup of coffee and a beautiful
    slice of cake in the cafeteria at the last shop.

    She was jubilant, but then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she
    dashed to the hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about
    her husband's condition.

    The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, 'You went ahead and finished your
    shopping trip didn't you? I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were
    out for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has been
    languishing in the Intensive Care Unit. It's just as well you went ahead and
    finished, because it will be more than likely the last shopping trip you
    ever take. For the rest of his life he will require round the clock care and
    you'll now be his caregiver'.

    The woman was feeling so guilty she broke down and sobbed...............

    The lady doctor then chuckled and said, 'I'm just pulling your leg. He's
    dead. Let's see what you bought.'
