A man was brought to Mercy Hospital and taken in for coronary surgery. The operation went well and, as the groggy man regained consciousness, he was reassured by a Sister of Mercy, who was waiting by his bed.

“Mr Smith, you’re going to be just fine,” said the nun, gently patting his hand. “We do need to know , however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?”

“No, I’m not,” the man whispered hoarsely.

“Can you pay in cash?” persisted the nun.

“I’m afraid I cannot, Sister.”

“Well, do you have any close relatives?”the nun essayed.

“Just my sister in New Mexico,” he volunteered.”But she’s a humble spinster nun.”

“Oh, I must correct you, Mr. Smith.Nuns are not 'spinsters.’They are married to God.”

“Wonderful, “ said Smith. “In that case, please send the bill to my brother-in-law.”


一个男人被送进慈善医院做冠状动脉手术。手术非常顺利。等这个虚弱的男人苏醒之后,一直守在床边的修女便安慰他。

“史密斯先生,你很快就能恢复健康了,” 修女轻轻拍着他的手说。“不过,我们需要知道你打算如何支付住院费呢,你有保险吗?”

男人用嘶哑的声音小声说,“不,没有。”

“你能用现金支付吗?”修女追问道。

“恐怕不能,修女。”

“那么,你有直系亲属吗?”修女试探着问道。

“我只有一个姐姐在新墨西哥州,”他主动说道。“不过,他是个地位卑微的修女,一个老处女。”

“噢,我得给你更正一下,史密斯先生。修女不是‘老处女’,他们是跟上帝结了婚。”

“太好了,”史密斯说,“那样的话,就请把账单寄给我的姐夫把。”
