kenny01: it could have been worse..............................Angelo always looked on the bright side. He would constantly irritate his friends with his eternal optimism. No matter how horrible the circumstance, he would always reply, 'It could have been worse.' To cure him of his annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a situation so completely bad, so terrible, that even Angelo could find no hope in it. In the bar one day, one of them said, 'Angelo, did you hear about Guido? He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both and then turned the gun on himself!' 'That`s awful,' said Angelo, 'But it could have been worse.' 'How in the name of Christ,' asked his angry friend, 'Could it have been worse?' Replied Angelo 'If it happened the night before, I`d be dead'.
