(New Zealand Herald)   Don't you hate it when the doctors say you have fatal cancer, so you spend $80,000 completing everything on your bucket list, and then it turns out the doctors got it wrong?   ( divider line

If I completed my bucket list, it wouldn't matter if I found out I didn't have cancer. The earth would be uninhabitable anyway.

A salesman sought medical aid because he had sore, popping eyes, couldn't see well and had a ringing in his ears. A doctor looked the salesman over and suggested removal of his tonsils. The operation resulted in no improvement, so the salesman consulted another doctor, who suggested the removal of his teeth. His teeth were extracted, but the salesman's eyes still popped and the ringing in his ears continued.

A third doctor told him bluntly, "You've got six months to live."

So the doomed salesman thought he would treat himself right while he still could. The salesman bought himself a flashy car and hired himself a chauffeur. He then went to the best tailor in town to make him a few custom suits. The salesman even decided to order a dozen shirts that would be made-to-order.

"Okay," said the shirtmaker, "let's get your measurements. Hmm, 35 sleeve, 16 collar - "

"Fifteen," the salesman said.

"Sixteen collar," the shirtmaker repeated, measuring again.

"But I've always worn a 15 collar," said the salesman.

"Listen," said the shirtmaker, "I'm warning you. You keep wearing a 15 collar, and your eyes will pop and you'll have a ringing in your ears."

Makes me think of:

The wizards of Unseen University knew the exact time of their death, which meant they always died deep in debt.

Or something like that. If Terry is reading this he can correct me.

rvabenji: You're an idiot.

No, you.

rvabenji: His point was he has life insurance which pays a lump sum when he dies. The insurance company expects you to use that for bills.

My point is, they ran up a whole bunch of unnecessary bills expecting a big payout. If they were hospital bills, these fine folks might deserve some sympathy and possibly some compensation, As it is, they went on vacation, gambling and losing. It's all there in the article.... you did read the article, right?

TFA: They blew $30,000 on food, a five-star resort and fishing activities, expecting his life insurance to cover the costs.

Good news! It's not an indefinite stay of death. That life insurance will eventually pay out.

So you borrowed 80k without any intention of paying it back. And somehow because you thought you were dying, we're supposed to sympathize?

Sorry. That makes you a douchebag.
