The Sensitive Guy


The Daily Item

- — Steve, Bob and Jeff are working on a very high scaffolding. Suddenly, Steve falls off. After the ambulance leaves with Steve's body, Bob and Jeff realize they'll have to inform his wife.        

      Bob says he's good at this sort of sensitive stuff, so he volunteers to do the job.        

      After two hours he returns, carrying a large pizza. "So did you tell her?" asks Jeff.        

      "Yep", replies Bob.        

      "Say, where did you get the pizza?"        

      Bob informs Jeff. "She bought it for me."        

      "WHAT??" exclaims Jeff, "you just told her her husband died and she bought you a pizza?"        

      "Sure," Bob says.        

      "WHY?" asks Jeff.        

      "Well," Bob continues, "when she answered the door, I asked her, 'are you Steve's widow?' 'Widow?', she said, 'no, no, you're mistaken, I'm not a widow!' So I said: "I'll bet you a pizza you ARE!'"
