|When the debt collector is most needed…
An elderly couple was flying to Hawaii for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
Suddenly, the captain announced over the public address system,
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry to say that I have some bad news. our engines are malfunctioning and we will attempt an emergency landing.
Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach.
However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives.”
Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane landed safely on the island.
An hour later, the husband turned to his wife and asked, “Honey, did we pay the car bill this month?”
“No, sweetheart,” she responded.
Still shaken from the crash landing, he then asked, “did you pay our credit card bill yet?”
“Oh no! I’m sorry. I forgot to send the check.” She said.
“One last thing, did you remember to pay the medical bill for the hospital visit last month? ” he asked.
“Oh, forgive me, sweetheart,” begged the wife. “I didn’t sent hat one, either.”
The husband grabbed her and gave her the biggest hug in 50 years.
She pulled away and asked him, “What was the hug for?”
The husband answered, “Don’t you see? the debt collectors will find us!”
